Kindle Voyage versus Kindle Paperwhite Comparison

Resolution and Display

The kindle Voyage has a built-in light display and has a better resolution than its kindle Paperwhite counterpart has. It has a superior display than other kindle product available on the market today.

Moreover, the product has 300 pixels, which is about the same of Kindle Paperwhite (300 px updated in 2015). The result of this is that it shows a good, sharp image display. The implication of this is that it is pretty easy and comfortable to read and use Voyage than the Paperwhite.

Voyage has way better screen and Wins!

Brightness

Apart from its better resolution, Kindle Voyage has better brightness than the Kindle Paperwhite. It is brighter by at least 39 percent.

The kindle voyage also has an adaptive front light. This is a new feature; this adjusts the brightness of the light. You can easily adjust the voyage light depending on the period of the day you want to use it. It is good as it matches the way your eyes react to darkness.

Brighter is better. Voyage Wins again!

Front Flush Design

Furthermore, the Kindle Voyage is better than Paperwhite because of the front flush design. This feature is not available in the 2013 model.

This uses a scratch resistant glass. Because of this, it can diffuse light, so that users could read comfortably without glaring.

Check out this beautiful bright screen and outstanding reading experience yourself.

PagePress Technology Exclusive

The Kindle Voyage is produced with the modern PagePress technology. This includes a haptic feedback. This feature enables the users to turn the pages with ease.

You could turn Voyage pages by lightly pressing on its frame. You will feel a tactile vibration; this indicates that a new page has been turned on.

The presence of PagePress in the Kindle Voyage cures the deficiency of page buttons in Paperwhite. The non-availability of page buttons on Paperwhite is one of its shortcomings.

This Exclusive Press Feature is brilliant!

The kindle Voyage weighs 6.3 ounces and has a dimension of 6.4 inches by 4.5 inches by 0.30 inches. However, the Kindle Voyage Wi Fi 3G model weighs 6.6 ounces. By far, it’s the lightest Kindle!

    So the one thing that nobody seems to be talking about on any of the sites, is how much more sensitive screen for using the keyboard. It’s using touch technology, correct? It isn’t just using infrared sensors anymore? Main reason for me wanting to upgrade from the paperwhite to the new voyage isso I can take notes much more quickly and accurately. I tend to use my iPad mini to read my books more often than not because it’s much more accurate. But I prefer reading my stuff on a Kindle so that I am less easily distracted and going on the web we’re checking out notifications and such. Any clarification would be great appreciated, plus couldgive you a jump over all the other people who have neglected to talk about this.

      Blair, thanks for checking. I believe Voyage has more sensitive screen for typing with higher resolution.

      I do highlight good “quote” when reading. I prefer touching the screen, drag and highlight. Not sure if you do type and take notes much when reading on Kindle.
