Product Comparison: Kindle Glare-Free vs Kindle Paperwhite
- I love the touch screen and the ability to scroll without buttons.
- Good, but unhappy that screen size is small, less than I expected
- This is the best alternative to hard copy book. Fluid page turning and wonderful screen light. Light weight and easy to hold. Love it!!
- The screen size could be bigger like the earlier versions of kindle.
- The screen is too dark, and cannot adjust the brightness
- It does its job but I would buy one which the screen is brighter. There are times that it's difficult to read because screen is not too bright
- The backlight looks great. It's a perfect size. And because it's one page at a time, you overcome another annoyance of physical books.
- First and foremost, it feels so good reading one hand with it. It is perfect for one hand use: perfect weight, perfect size, perfect grip. I like the feel of it so much I just can't put a case on it. I purchased a sleeve for it when it's not in use.
- The screen is beautiful. Being able to read either in complete darkness or in direct sunlight is a thing of beauty - especially coming from an iPhone.
- I wish the screen had a bit more contrast. It seems like the Voyage might excel here but for the price difference I'm still satisfied.
- Lighting issues - obviously, not all Kindles are made with the same tone of lights
- There is no way to make a black background while having lit text. This makes reading before bed very frustrating since I don't want such a bright light shining in my face. Because this is when I do my most reading, it loses two stars for not including this basic feature.
- The built in dictionary is awesome for words you come across you don't know.
- Nice alternative for reading kindle books for kids. Not many features but good enough for reading.
- This is more a no-frills Kindle compared to the ones that had keyboards and nicer back-lit features. But it does the job.
- Good features and quality. Would be nice if it worked better in low light. Should have stepped up for the backlit one. This is nice if your conditions are bright.
- One of my favorite features is the ability to hold your finger over a word, highlight it, and ask for a definition. The kindle is a great tool for entertainment as well as expanding your vocabulary.
- When you first turn on the kindle, the home screen does not make it easy to determine exactly how to open up and read a downloaded book.
- The battery lasts forever. I've had it for almost a week now, and haven't had to charge it yet. The battery is still quite full.
- You can plug it into your laptop and load other books (but sometimes it won't even with some common formats)
- Easier access to configuration settings, i.e. better user interface
- Also appreciate the ease of changing dictionaries once the definition comes up.
- The battery life has dropped from 8 weeks at ½ hour of reading per day to 6 weeks at ½ hour of reading per day (Roughly 28 hours to 21 hours). That is due to the additional energy required for the higher resolution screen and the power to render the higher resolution of text.
- Swiping the screen to unlock. I have plenty of tablets that require me to swipe them to start using them. It's not something I ever wanted in a reader.
