Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2015) Review | TECHGAGE

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2015) Review | TECHGAGE | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
It’s been nearly two years since the second-gen Kindle Paperwhite was released, and three years since the original first hit the scene. Does that mean that the third-generation Paperwhite, with its staggering two-year gap, becomes a major update to the series?

Not quite. Paperwhite, like all Kindles, are not devices that need to be upgraded all of the time, (unlike our smartphones). It’s rare when a “killer” feature comes along that would warrant an upgrade, with the only one I can think of being the backlight capabilities of the higher-end models. If you own a previous Paperwhite, you don’t really need to be evaluating this third-gen one, unless of course yours has seen better days or has met an untimely demise.
