So far, the Kindle Paperwhite has had 3 deadly enemies: water, small pockets, and book snobs. Although the latter have less and less chance of convincing that books are more durable than e-readers. But, Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2018 became waterproof, there was support for audiobooks and Bluetooth.
Design by Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2018
For the most part, the new version of Paperwhite 2018 repeats the previous model visually and functionally. So this is not bad, considering that new functionality has been added. For example, the Oasis reader has almost the same capabilities, although it costs twice as much, although it has a slightly larger screen.
The Kindle logo has changed in Paperwhite - it's no longer black, but white. There is no longer a ledge on the rear panel where the USB connector and power button are located.
Now to the display of the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2018. Both the Oasis and the new Paperwhite have 300ppi screens. The base model of the Kindle received a display with a resolution of 167ppi. Oddly enough, if you read books with a minimum of illustrations and graphics, you may not notice the difference in resolution.
Features and differences
Let's get back to the topic of water resistance and Bluetooth support again. Some people may not even want to take a book reader with them to the shower or pool, but it often happens that drops of water or other liquid fall on the screen and can at least turn another page, or even go out to the menu without giving the opportunity to save. In any case, it is better to have a device with protection than without it.
A practical feature of the Paperwhite 2018 is support for audio formats via Bluetooth. I think some of the owners of older Kindle models will be able to recall the possibility of converting text to speech or an experimental MP3 player. Now these functions are gone, but you can listen to audiobooks via Bluetooth.
There are a number of other minor changes. The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2018 display is not recessed into the bezel. Dust will no longer collect around the perimeter. In addition, the new version of the reader has become smaller by a few millimeters on each side, and also lighter. As a result, the new Paperwhite is slightly lighter and more comfortable to hold. But, the cover from the previous version will not fit the 2018 model.
