I LOVE the paper white screen non glare and ability to read outside in bright ambient light ! Great to read in bed, very very good. easy to see and light to hold up. I love that its waterproof ( but won't test it to see) I like the extra four Gb model because the firmware does consume a heap of RAM. For example with four books loaded it read I had 5.8 GB left of 8 Gb so go figure, can we deduce firmware must take up a massive 2+ GB ?? What I was disappointed in is the lack of features that Android KIndle has my favorite of these missing on my new KIndle is 1. NO white text on black page 2. no gimmicky page turn animations 3. no colour ( N.B this was never expected) slightest of lagginess in the touch screen 4. screen brightness must be on Max to equal that of a normal tablet. (how will that affect battery life?) 5. No blue tooth, therefore no sound, therefore kindle reader books don't work . 6. The Kindle should have sound and integrate Audible which is an intimately related Amazon product. 7. if white was available I would have chosen it. but black is ok. Now then , if am mistaken in any of these comments , please correct me, I have only had the paperwhite waterproof 8Gb, a few days when they asked for my review @#$^&!
