aħħar Kindle Amazon huwa verżjoni aġġornata tal Paperwhite tagħha, issa ma 'crisper u aktar faċli biex jinqara iskrin bl-doppju tal-għadd ta' pixels.

Il Paperwhite huwa l-Kindle midrange, taħt il top-of-the-line £ 170 Vjaġġ li l-wegħdiet kull qanpiena u whistle, u fuq l-£ 50 Kindle bażiku. Iżda Amazon jittiekel fil-vantaġġ tal-Vjaġġ billi tagħti l-Paperwhite ġdid l-istess iskrin le-karta riżoluzzjoni bħala xempju tiegħu?

disinn monokromi Sempliċi

Minn barra huwa diffiċli li wieħed jara x'inhu nbidlu. Huwa l-istess ffukata fuq l-iskrin disinn. Id-dahar hija koperta fil-soft touch plastik, l bezel quddiem huwa aktar diffiċli u ftit aktar griż mill-ġenerazzjoni preċedenti.

M'hemm l-ebda buttuni apparti mill-buttuna l-enerġija fuq it-tarf tal-qiegħ - touchscreen jieħu ħsieb il-mistrieħ. Swipe jew tmiss il-lemin biex inbiddlu l-paġna, ix-xellug li jmorru lura. Tmiss il-quċċata li tinvoka l-menu u l-bidla settings, taġġusta l-backlight jew tagħżel ktieb ġdid.

Jekk ikollok qatt jintużaw Kindle jew kwalunkwe e-qarrej ieħor se jkun immedjatament familjari.

L-iskrin 6in huwa l-fokus. Hija għandha darbtejn in-numru ta 'pixels u densità iskrin ta' 88 aktar pixels kull pulzier (PPI) mill-Paperwhite ġenerazzjoni preċedenti fl 300PPI, li huwa notevoli meta l-qari testi. Għat-tqabbil l-Kindle irħas jiswew £ 49 għandha screen 6in ma 167PPI, li huwa notevoli inqas ċara.

Id-dawl ta 'quddiem jagħmel il-paġna jidhru bojod, li huwa fejn l-isem tagħha ġej minn, u jistgħu jiġu aġġustati manwalment minn verament qawwi ħafna għal ħafna dim għall-qari fid-dlam. L-backlight huwa saħansitra madwar il-paġna, iżda l-qiegħ nett tal-paġna jistenna ftit grayer.

Huwa l-aħjar iskrin qatt mwaħħla mal-Paperwhite, u filwaqt li jaqbel ma 'l-Kindle aktar għoljin, il £ 170 Vjaġġ, fuq l-għadd tal-pixel huwa pjuttost mhux ta 'kwalità għolja.

fonts ġodda u l-karatteristiċi

Amazon has a new font for its Kindles called Bookerly, which is designed for reading on screen rather than the printed page, and new typesetting features. Combined they make reading on screen easier than using classics such as Helvetica. I found eye-strain wasn’t an issue, even during long reading sessions – it is for me reading on screen on a smartphone or tablet.

Amazon’s X-ray, notations, word look-up and progress indicators, which tell you how much longer it will take you to finish a chapter, all add value and interest to the reading experience.

Hold a finger on a word or a name and a context sensitive information box pops up, which is particularly useful for abbreviated terms, acronyms or characters you’d forgotten about.

Faster and lasts 21 sigħat

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 minuta kuljum (21 hours in total) with the brightness set to 10 barra minn 24 livelli. 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.

Prezz

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 ġunju.

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.

Pros: iskrin kbir, easy to use, look-up and X-ray features are great, even backlight, large range of accessories, extensive book store

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