This article will explain how to flip the pages on your Kindle Voyage. When looking for an eBook reader with an e-ink display, you only have a few options: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Kobo. The Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight is my most recent e-reader, and I’m rather pleased with it. I even assumed there couldn’t be any significant improvements in the industry until Amazon unveiled the Kindle Voyage, its new top e-reader with some promising features. Amazon Kindle Voyage Review (Best or the Worst eBook Reader Ever?)
Is this the Best or Worst eBook Reader of All Time?
Review of Amazon’s Kindle Voyage
Here are the details on how to turn the pages on a kindle trip in this article:
While most ebook readers can be purchased for under $100, the Voyage has a starting price of $200. Is it actually deserving of the $100 upgrade? Keep an eye out for my in-depth review after using the device for the past two weeks.
Unboxing and a Basic Guide
The Kindle Voyage and a USB cable are the only items included in the box; the power adaptor is not included, but you may charge the device using the converter that came with your phone or by plugging it into your computer.
The Voyage is noticeably smaller, thinner, and lighter than the Kindle Paperwhite. The Paperwhite is 6.7 ′′ x 4.6 ′′ x 0.36 ′′ and weighs 7.3 ounces, while the Voyage measures 6.7 ′′ x 4.6 ′′ x 0.36 ′′ and weighs 6.3 ounces. This is the lightest Kindle, although it isn’t quite as big as the others.
Unlike previous models, which had somewhat recessed screens, the Voyage has a flush front screen, implying that the screen and page-turning controls are all on the same glass surface.
To keep the design as clean as possible, the buttons on the bezel are capacitive. As a result, the buttons do not protrude from the surface area and will produce a small haptic reaction when pressed. The long bar will take you to the next page, and the small dot will take you back to the previous one.
Amazon also placed the Power button to the back, where it could be reached quickly with our index finger, to keep the design simple. The device’s back is made of magnesium, which makes it look a lot more sturdy and elegant.
The Voyage still has a 6-inch screen, but the quality has been greatly improved. This is the highest-resolution screen on the market; the pixel density has now surpassed 300 PPI, while other display panels remain at around 200 PPI. The screen is ideal for both outdoor and indoor reading, as well as night reading. And the text is exceptionally sharp, which is a significant improvement when compared to other e-readers like the Nook GlowLight or Kindle PaperWhite.
The front glass is matte to simulate actual paper, and it does a good job of reducing glare and fingerprints. I often can’t tell the difference between checking out a paper book and reading on the Voyage because the bright screen with black lettering delivers a nearly identical experience. After around 12 page turns, the screen will need to refresh itself, however, text ghosting will be minimal.
The adaptive front light is my only gripe. It is meant to rapidly alter the brightness of the display to provide optimal lighting; however, I had to disable this feature because it frequently made the screen excessively black, making it difficult to read the text. I usually set the brightness setting manually to around 15-20.
User Experience and Content
Amazon is simply the greatest in its eBook setting, and I believe it will continue to dominate the North American market for a long time. The Kindle Store has an excellent pricing strategy, with numerous daily and monthly book deals. Furthermore, if you have an Amazon Prime or Kindle Unlimited subscription, you can borrow and read a large number of books for free.
You can copy books from other sources to this device, and it supports a variety of file kinds, including Amazon’s AZW and AZW3, TXT, DOC, DOCX, HTML, MOBI, and PDF.
Unfortunately, ePub files are not currently supported. Kindle FreeTime, Family Library, WordWise, Enhanced Search, About The Book, Goodreads, and a hypothetical Web browser are all interwoven within The Voyage. They aren’t great selling features, but they will make using this gadget more enjoyable.
This is a very efficient device in terms of efficiency. For an e-ink screen, turning between pages, moving between screens, and typing on the virtual keyboard is quick and acceptable.
Nonetheless, it has a serious flaw that causes many buyers to be concerned. It appears that Amazon is having issues managing the quality of this item; many consumers are frustrated by the Application Error, which renders the device unusable after awakening. More information about the Application Error can be found in my previous post.
With 30 minutes of daily reading at brightness level 10 and Wi-Fi turned off, Amazon claims that the battery life on this device might last up to two weeks. However, because I frequently need to set the brightness to nearly 20 and keep Wi-Fi turned on all the time, it may only last about a week.
- Clear and bright
- Smaller and cleaner design
- A matte screen is great for both indoor and outdoor use.
- Good efficiency and battery life.
- The adaptive front light does not perform as expected
- the ePub format is still not supported
- Pricing is high.
The Kindle Voyage is available for $199. I had hoped for a fully functional device in this price range, but Amazon failed to deliver. When the Voyage was released, it appears that the software program was not complete. And when it works, this is a fantastic e-reader; fortunately, all of the issues have been resolved. As a result, I am now able to suggest this product. Keep reading us for other interesting tech articles. Goodbye!
