Amazon Kindle (2019)
At 174 grams, it weighs slightly more than the previous model (161 grams), which is presumably due to the inclusion of the lighting system and some other small upgrades. Amazon says it’s equipped with the “latest electronic ink technology for better contrast” and has been upgraded with capacitive touch “to prevent accidental swipes” on its 6-inch 167 ppi display. Like the previous model, this Kindle has Bluetooth connectivity for listening to audiobooks, too.
Amazon’s step-up still outshine this entry-level model, with sharper 300 ppi displays and waterproof bodies. And the base models of those e-readers include 8GB of storage while the new entry-level Kindle has 4GB (no step-up cellular version is available, this model is Wi-Fi only). That’s plenty of space to store thousands of e-books, but audiobooks eat up your storage a lot faster due to their much larger file sizes.
I spent some time comparing this model to the Paperwhite and it’s easy to see that the text and graphics (cover art on books) is noticeably sharper on the Paperwhite. The lighting on the Paperwhite is also a little brighter and whiter, which makes sense given that the Paperwhite has five LEDs compared to the Kindle’s four.
If you didn’t have the Paperwhite on hand for comparison purposes, of course, you’d probably think the new entry-level Kindle is just fine — and it is. It’s also a nice upgrade over its predecessor, which was really hurt by not having a light. Amazon also says the contrast on this new model is better. I compared the two screens with the light off on the new model and the text does appear to be slightly darker — closer to black than a dark gray.
