Brilliantly crisp display

The high-resolution display (300 ppi) features sharp, dark text that reads even more like the printed page. The micro-etched glass display diffuses light to eliminate glare and match the feel of paper. Kindle Voyage features the brightest, highest resolution, and highest contrast display of any Kindle.

Effortless page turns

PagePress allows you to turn the page without lifting a finger. Simply apply pressure on the bezel to turn the page, and PagePress will provide a silent haptic response for consistent and immediate feedback. PagePress is a custom-designed force sensor made of carbon and silver, which reacts to a subtle increase of pressure, triggers a page-turn, and provides a haptic response only your thumb can perceive.

Light that adjusts with you

Kindle Voyage can be read in bright sunlight or total darkness—and it’s smart enough to know the difference. The new adaptive front light automatically adjusts the brightness of the display based on your environment, and can even be fine-tuned further to your personal preferences. When reading in the dark, the adaptive front light slowly lowers the display’s brightness over time to match the way the eye responds to darkness.

Remarkably thin design

At just 7.6mm thin, Kindle Voyage is comfortable to hold in one hand for long reading sessions. Kindle Voyage was designed to come one step closer to a sheet of paper, with a flush-front bezel for a clean, streamlined design. With a magnesium back and a specially-reinforced glass front, Kindle Voyage is both durable and sleek.

  1. The state of the art e-ink reader but is it worth the money to upgrade Although I’ve owned almost every model of Kindle ebook readers since the 2nd generation Kindle that I bought in 2009, I had to think hard about ordering the new Voyage. I was very happy with my Paperwhite (the 2nd generation that was released in the fall of 2013), and as much as I wanted to try the Voyage, I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend $199 on one. It became a moot point, though, when my wife ordered the Voyage, saying it was her early Christmas present to me. Now that I’ve had time to use the Voyage, I have to say I’m impressed. With hardware features like a 300 ppi display, LEDs that automatically adjust the screen brightness depending on the ambient lighting, and the user’s choice of a touchscreen or sensors acting like buttons to turn pages, the Voyage is hands down the state-of-the-art e-ink ebook reader. At the end of my review, I’ll give my opinion on whether it’s worth upgrading from your current ebook reader.When I received the Voyage, the setup was quick (although you do have to go through a brief tutorial), and after downloading a few of my books from the Amazon Cloud and adjusting a few settings, the Voyage was ready to go. Here’s a brief comparison of the Voyage and the Paperwhite:Voyage———Size: 6.4″x4.5″x0.30″Weight (wi-fi version): 6.3 ouncesDisplay: 6″ diagonal, 300 pixels per inch, 16-level grayscale, LED frontlitStorage memory: 4GBPage turns: Touchscreen plus PagePressDisplay lighting: Adaptive light sensor (automatic) plus manual adjustmentPaperwhite————-Size: 6.7″x4.6″x0.36″Weight (wi-fi version): 7.3 ouncesDisplay: 6″ diagonal, 212 pixels per inch, 16-level grayscale, LED frontlitStorage memory: 4GB (for the Paperwhites currently being sold)Page turns: TouchscreenDisplay lighting: Manually adjustable front-lightingSo the Voyage weighs an ounce less than the Paperwhite, and it’s slightly smaller. Those are not substantial differences, but it might make a difference if you hand-hold your ebook reader for long periods of time. The higher resolution does make a difference, however, especially if you read many books with illustrations or photographs. I’ve been reading most illustrated books on my Kindle Fire, but with the increased resolution, I may read them on the Voyage now. And the Voyage’s 300ppi resolution compared to the Paperwhite’s 212ppi definitely makes a difference in viewing. Even the smallest font size is very sharp, although I prefer a slightly larger font for reading.Besides the smaller size, the Voyage has some other obvious differences from the Paperwhite. The shell is made of magnesium instead of plastic. The capacitive touch screen is made of hardened glass instead of a plastic-like material. The Kindles have always been pretty resistant to damage if they were dropped. (Remember the videos Amazon used to show to demonstrate that?) The change in materials should make the Voyage even more resistant to damage. The location of the power button has moved from the bottom of the case to the rear of the case, at the top right, but if you’re using a cover that activates the Voyage’s Auto Wake function, you’ll seldom need to touch the power button. The micro-USB charging port remains at the bottom.One of the most significant new hardware features on the voyage are the pressure-sensitive page turn sensors. The last few Kindle models did away with raised buttons in favor of touchscreen controls. I prefer the touchscreen, but Amazon has obviously listened to Kindle users who miss the buttons, so they’re back, but they’re in a new flush, pressure-sensitive design that Amazon calls PagePress. The PagePress sensors are located on the sides of the bezel (the frame around the screen), which in the Voyage is flush with the screen, whereas in the Paperwhite, the bezel is raised about a millimeter above the screen. (This makes it less likely for sand or dust to get trapped along the edges of the screen.) The PagePress sensors are located on both sides of the bezel, so they’re ambidextrous (thank you from all of us southpaws). Press the long vertical line on either side of the bezel to turn the page, and the dot sitting above it to flip back one page. You’ll feel a slight vibration to confirm that you’ve pressed the sensor. The amount of vibration and the sensor’s sensitivity can be adjusted in the settings. If you prefer touchscreen controls, the PagePress sensors can be turned off so you don’t accidentally flip pages. After seeing how they worked (and they do work well), I turned them off. One thought: If you’re reading on the Voyage in a darkened room, you can see the screen just fine, but you can’t see the PagePress sensors, especially the little dots for returning to the previous page. It might have been better if they had made little bumps for some tactile feedback to your fingers…

  2. K.E. Fuhrmann

    I was very happy with my Paperwhite and would not have bought this … Since other people have gone into detail on the device, I will answer only the burning questions I had before I received mine. I was very happy with my Paperwhite and would not have bought this had mine not been stolen/lost (not sure which). My husband still has his Paperwhite, so I was able to compare them side by side.CAN I USE THE WALL CHARGER FROM MY PAPERWHITE TO CHARGE THE VOYAGE?Yes.CAN PRESSING THE PAGE TURNERS CAUSE REPETITIVE USE ISSUES?I don’t think so. You can turn down the pressure it needs (which is very slight) or you can turn it off completely and turn pages with a tap. It’s actually nice to have both options.CAN YOU SEE WHERE TO TURN THE PAGES IN THE DARK?No. You can guess where the page forward area is, but the page back is a dot, so guessing would be difficult. But you can still tap to turn pages. Using a cover helps, as the edge of the cover would be right over the dot.DOES THE FEEDBACK BUZZ ANNOY YOU WHEN YOU TURN PAGES?I think it does take a little getting used to, but you can turn it down, and I think I will not notice it after a while. (There’s no sound; it’s purely tactile.) [Months later: It's not distracting; you forget about it.]IS THE ADJUSTABLE LIGHT NICE?I still do it manually. It doesn’t adjust the way I’d like it to. Not as bright in good light as I’d like, and not as dim while my husband is sleeping next to me. Note that if you want to use the “night light,” you have to set that separately from Auto Adjust. Settings/Device Options/Screen Light. I’m not actually sure that the night light is working. It was at 18 when I turned off the light (this is quite bright), and I checked it about 10 minutes later, and it was at 17. My eyes adjust a lot faster than that. I turned it down manually to about 7.CAN I USE THE COVER/CASE FROM MY PAPERWHITE FOR THE VOYAGE?I had a Fintie, and I tried it. The entire reading area was still completely visible, but there was about 1/4″ of extra space above and I couldn’t access the power button. You need to access the power button in the back to wake it out of screen saver mode, and you’d have to take it out of the cover to do that. It would protect it, though, in a suitcase while you’re traveling. I ended up buying another Fintie for the Voyage and I’m very happy with it.IS THE CRISPNESS OF THE TEXT AND WHITENESS OF THE BACKGROUND BETTER THAN THE PAPERWHITE?When I originally wrote this review it was. But Amazon recently upgraded the Paperwhite and the newest version now has the same screen resolution as the Voyage. Although I don’t have the two of them to compare (my husband has the earlier version Paperwhite), I understand that the text on the Voyage is still a tad crisper and clearer. See the Update in my conclusion below.ANY ISSUES?I do not have any of the page hue issues that others have. The screen is uniformly white.At first, I was having a problem with the page turners being located at just the spot where I like to hold the device. It took a while to find a comfortable way to hold it consistently. My thumb kept wanting to move to that spot, causing me to inadvertently change pages. Using a cover helps.BOOKS IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN AND A COUPLE OF TIPSThere is a way to easily download public domain books from Project Gutenberg on your Kindle by using the experimental browser. Open the browser on your Kindle (in the main menu) and type in the URL: http://www.freekindlebooks.org This will open a link to what’s known as the Magic Catalog. When you have downloaded the catalog, it will appear on your home page and will look like a book. When you open it, you will see it is a listing of all the books in Project Gutenberg, and all these books are linked to their website. You can search for something (like, say, Peter Pan), and download it from the catalog right onto your device without having to connect to a computer. Very nifty. This can be done on any Kindle, not just the Voyage. Be sure to use the domain name ORG, not COM. freekindlebooks.com is something completely different.You can also download books from the mobile site: m.gutenberg.org. But you would have to open the browser each time, as opposed to the Magic Catalog, where the links are already there.Tips:Know that you can turn off the public notes and highlights that appear in your book, and you can also turn off the “Recommended Content” that appears on the bottom of your home page.CONCLUSION:If you are happy with your Paperwhite, I would recommend sticking with it. Only buy the Voyage if you have money to throw around and like buying all the latest gadgets. The Voyage is fabulous, but the Paperwhite is perfectly fine. If you have a keyboard Kindle, the…

  3. Almost like Paperwhite v1 all over again I’ve got mixed feelings on this one, unfortunately. This review is coming from a kindle enthusiast who has owned or used nearly every variation of the device since the 1st generation.Size & Weight—It’s noticeably smaller and lighter than the Paperwhite. When I saw the specs it didn’t really strike me as something that would make much difference to me, but in real life it’s actually great. The Voyage fits into a few of my coat pockets that the Paperwhite was just a little too big to fit into.Origami Cover—I know there’s a separate product page for the origami cover, but it’s worth mentioning here as it is the “official” cover. The origami cover is ugly and I was skeptical, but I actually love it. It’s weird because it opens by flipping over the top like a notepad. This actually makes it more comfortable to hold when the cover is open, in my opinion. It’s hard to describe, but there are a lot more ways to hold the Voyage when it’s attached to this cover, and just generally is more comfortable to use. The origami part of the case works great as well… it stands vertically or horizontally (if you’re laying down and reading, this is amazing).The other great new thing about this case is that the Voyage attaches to it magnetically. It attaches and detaches very easily, unlike the Paperwhite which seemed to be nearly permanently attached to the standard case. This is great because if you decide you want to read the device and appreciate how light/thin it is without a case attached, it’s super easy to take it out.It’s pricey but worth it.PagePress—One of the new features is PagePress, which has sensors on the outer edge of the device that you can squeeze to turn pages. The device lets you adjust the sensitivity between low/med/high — by default it’s set to medium. I found medium to require squeezing way too hard, what felt unnatural and more than any button would or should require to advance to the next page. I adjusted it to “low” and it works perfectly now. Thumb rests on the sensor, and a gentle squeeze advances the page, and haptic feedback (a tiny vibration/buzz) is there to give you a tactile response that the so-called button was pressed. The haptic feedback can be adjusted (low/med/high)or disabled as well. It doesn’t trigger accidentally like I feared it might, and I actually really like it.Auto Brightness—The device now has a light sensor in the top left corner that is supposed to detect ambient light levels and adjust the brightness of the Kindle accordingly. I’ve had very mixed results with this. First, auto brightness is disabled on the device by default — which seems odd given that it’s one of the key new features of the device. The auto brightness worked very briefly when I first got the device, but it always seemed to be a little off from how I would like the screen to look. In lit rooms, it tended to be a little on the darker side, and in dark rooms it was too bright.Well, shortly after using the Voyage the auto brightness quit working altogether. I restarted the device a few times with no luck. After contacting support, they asked me to proceed with a factory reset. It’s worked again since then, but doesn’t leave me with a ton of confidence since it started acting up so quickly after getting the device.Screen—I’ve seen the reports online of users who have a “two toned” screen — blueish on the bottom, yellowish on the top. I’m afraid to say that I have experienced this as well. Spending upwards of $200 for a luxury ereader, it’s really surprising and disappointing that they haven’t got this figured out by now — this is supposed to be a premium device and it’s the 3rd generation frontlit reader for amazon. This is reminiscent of the Paperwhite V1 launch with all of the splotchy lighting — while it was a huge leap over the prior generation, you expect something like this to work perfectly. It doesn’t.The Paperwhite V1 had splotchy lighting, Paperwhite V2 was supposed to have “improved” lighting — which it did, but still wasn’t perfect (mine still had some bright spots)… but to be honest, the lighting on my Paperwhite V2 looks better and more consistent than the Voyage. It’s unfortunate that this is a step back. I hope this isn’t a widespread issue, but I fear that it is after seeing numerous users on other forums posting about it and sharing pictures of their device. It’ll be a shame if the only upgrade next year will be a Voyage V2 with “improved lighting”, just like what happened with the Paperwhite. I’ll be more skeptical about being an early adopter next time.Aside from the uneven lighting, which I can’t decide how distracting it is, the contrast and picture quality of the screen is outstanding. When I compare the text from my Paperwhite V2 to the Voyage side-by-side, the text on the Paperwhite almost…
