In our books, the Kindle Paperwhite has been the gold standard of e-readers since its entry. Unsurprising, then, that the e-reader to top it would also be the work of Amazon. With a 300 ppi 6″ display, light sensor-lead adaptive front lighting, and the thinnest profile a Kindle’s ever had (at 7.6 mm), we might be lead to accidentally overlook — on paper anyway — its glare-free, micro-etched glass front that sits flush with its edges and replaces what would otherwise be plastic. It also boasts weeks of battery life, PagePress pressure sensors for page turns (each accompanied by haptic feedback), a lighter build than its predecessors, and 4GB of storage that translates to a 2,000+ book capacity.
