Living in Cambodia, and you want to buy a Kindle Voyage. Where? Kindle Voyage is crafted for the love of reading! The thinnest e-reader is now available for grab at Sweet Memory Store.
Amazon announced the Kindle Voyage on September 18, 2014. It was officially released on October 21, 2014 in the US. The Voyage has a 6-inch, 300 ppi E Ink Carta HD display, which was the highest resolution and contrast available in e-readers as of 2014 with six LEDs with an adaptive light sensor that can automatically illuminate the screen depending on the environment. Until today, it remains the on of the kings of the Kindle.
Amazon Kindle Voyage and Kindle Paperwhite have the same screen size, battery life, resolution and storage. The color of the Kindle Voyage’s chassis, like all Kindles in recent memory, is somewhere between dark gray and black.
The Kindle Voyage has two remarkable features that the Paperwhite doesn’t have: an adaptive front light and new page-turning technology. The adaptive front light is designed to “more closely resemble reading on real paper.” Thanks to this automatically adjusting light sensor, readers can trust that their e-reader’s brightness is always at the optimal level for their surroundings. The second feature, the force-activated PagePress, allows users to turn a page by simply increasing the pressure of their thumb on the e-reader. If you take a closer look, you’ll notice the subtle differences start to emerge. The Kindle Voyage is Amazon’s thinnest Kindle in its lineup at 7.6mm (compare that to 9.1mm for the Paperwhite). It’s also marginally the lightest, but I wouldn’t say that any of this matters — recent Kindles certainly aren’t hard to hold for long stretches. The most noticeable change, really, is that the Voyage is the first Amazon e-reader with a completely flush display. The Voyage is an easy recommendation — but if you’re on a budget, get the Paperwhite instead. The Kindle Voyage e-reader is a joy to use and a wonderful way to read; only voracious readers with laser-sharp eyes.
For more casual readers, I’d recommend the Paperwhite. You’ll get many of the staple features without the price tag of the Voyage. But if you plan on using your new e-reader regularly, the adaptive front light and PagePress might be worth the extra bucks.
- PagePress is a revelation for heavy readers
- Best E Ink ever
- Automatic brightness is great (and overdue)
According to tech site The Verge, Kindle Voyage is “The best e-reader gets better — for a price.”
