Kindle diweddaraf Amazon yn fersiwn wedi'i ddiweddaru o'i y Papur, yn awr gyda crisper ac yn haws i'w darllen sgrin gyda dwywaith y nifer o bicseli.

Mae'r y Papur yw'r Kindle midrange, islaw'r-y-llinell uchaf-o £ 170 Voyage sy'n addo pob gloch a chwythu'r, ac yn uwch na'r Kindle sylfaenol £ 50. Ond mae wedi Amazon bwyta i mewn i fantais y Voyage drwy roi yr un sgrin cydraniad e-papur y y Papur newydd fel ei blaenllaw?

From the outside it’s difficult to see what’s changed. It’s the same screen-focused design. The back is covered in a soft-touch plastic, the front bezel is harder and slightly more grey than the previous generation.

There are no buttons apart from the power button on the bottom edge – a touchscreen takes care of the rest. Swipe or touch the right hand side to turn the page, the left to go back. Touch the top to invoke the menu and change settings, adjust the backlight or select a new book.

If you have ever used a Kindle or any other e-reader it will be immediately familiar.

The 6in screen is the focus. It has twice the number of pixels and a screen density of 88 more pixels per inch (PPI) than the previous generation Paperwhite at 300PPI, which is noticeable when reading text. For comparison the cheapest Kindle costing £49 has a 6in screen with 167PPI, which is noticeably less clear.

The front light makes the page appear white, which is where its name comes from, and can be manually adjusted from really very bright to very dim for reading in the dark. The backlight is even across the page, but the very bottom of the page looks slightly greyer.

It is the best screen ever fitted to the Paperwhite, and while it matches the most expensive Kindle, the £170 Voyage, on pixel count it isn’t quite as high quality.

New fonts and features

Mae gan Amazon ffont newydd ar gyfer ei Kindles a elwir Bookerly, sydd wedi'i gynllunio ar gyfer darllen ar y sgrîn yn hytrach na'r dudalen argraffedig, a nodweddion cysodi newydd. Cyfuno maent yn gwneud darllen ar y sgrîn yn haws na defnyddio clasuron megis Helvetica. Yr wyf yn dod o hyd nad yw llygad-straen yn broblem, hyd yn oed yn ystod sesiynau darllen hir - mae i mi ddarllen ar y sgrîn ar smartphone neu dabled.

pelydr-X Amazon, nodiannau, gair am-edrych a chynnydd dangosyddion, sy'n dweud wrthych faint mwy o amser y bydd yn mynd â chi i orffen pennod, i gyd yn ychwanegu gwerth a diddordeb i'r profiad o ddarllen.

Cynnal bys ar air neu enw a blwch gwybodaeth sensitif cyd-destun pops i fyny, sy'n arbennig o ddefnyddiol ar gyfer termau talfyredig, acronyms or characters you’d forgotten about.

Faster and lasts 21 oriau

The new Paperwhite is also slightly faster and more responsive while navigating the interface than the previous generation. It doesn’t rival a premium tablet, but feels snappy for an e-reader.

The Paperwhite weighs 205g, is 9.1mm thick and is easy to hold in one hand. Turning a page with the touchscreen is easy with two hands, less so with one – buttons on the right- and left-hand edges for page turning would be nice.

Amazon claims the Paperwhite lasts for up to six weeks reading 30 munud y dydd (21 hours in total) with the brightness set to 10 allan o 24 lefelau. That’s two weeks less than the previous Paperwhite with the same settings, but easily long enough to finish a book or two.

I managed to finish two 400-page books with airplane mode on before needing to recharge the Paperwhite. Leaving the Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity on drained the battery more quickly.

Price

The Kindle Paperwhite 2015 costs the same as the previous generation at £109.99 for a Wi-Fi only version with special offers, which puts adverts on to the lockscreen for books and other bits.

A version with 3G is also available costing £169.99, while removing the ads costs £10. It is currently available for pre-order shipping on 30 Mehefin.

Dyfarniad

Mae'r Chyneua y Papur newydd yw Amazon orau eto. Mae ei golau, hawdd i ddal a defnyddio, tra bod y sgrin un o'r sgriniau e-papur crispest wyf wedi gweld. Mae'n gwneud darllen yn bleser ac yr wyf yn darllen am fwy o amser nag yr oeddwn fyddai fel arfer.

It’s not a giant leap over last year’s Kindle Paperwhite or the first one, but is a substantial improvement over Amazon’s basic Kindle and is arguably better than most other similarly priced rivals.

It also isn’t quite as good as the Voyage, which is still my favourite e-reader, but it is £60 less expensive.

The Paperwhite is therefore for someone who is an extensive book reader, would like access to Amazon’s large library and doesn’t mind being locked into it, but can’t stomach paying much more than £100 for a single-use device. For that purpose, it is excellent.

Manteision: sgrin fawr, easy to use, look-up and X-ray features are great, even backlight, large range of accessories, extensive book store

Anfanteision: relatively expensive for a single-use device, no automatic adjustments of the backlight, no page turn buttons
