High 300dpi resolution e-reader display - New—With twice as many pixels as the previous generation, the all-new Kindle Paperwhite has an improved high-resolution 300 ppi display for crisp, laser quality text. No other e-reader offers a higher resolution display

No glare in bright sunlight - Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, Kindle Paperwhite reads like paper

Read comfortably with one hand - Lighter than a paperback, comfortably hold Kindle Paperwhite in one hand for those times when you can’t put the book down.

Charge monthly, not daily - A single charge can last up to six weeks (based on a half hour of reading per day with wireless turned off and the light setting at ten)

Won't tire your eyes in the dark - Kindle Paperwhite guides light toward the surface of the display with its built-in front light—unlike back-lit tablets that shine in your eyes—so you can read comfortably for hours without eyestrain. Adjust your screen's brightness for great reading in any light

Sharp, dark text - Enjoy text that reads like the printed page. All fonts have been hand-tuned at the pixel level for maximum readability 

Take and share notes - Add margin notes that you can edit, delete, or even export from your device to your computer.

Flip through without losing your place - With Page Flip, you can skim page-by-page, scan by chapter, or skip to the end for a sneak peek without losing your place

Read comfortably with one hand - Lighter than a paperback, comfortably hold Kindle Paperwhite in one hand for those times when you can’t put the book down

Adjust your text size - Choose from eight text sizes to prevent tired eyes and keep you reading longer

Share your library - With Family Library, you and your family can access and easily share not only your own Kindle books, but also books from the linked Amazon account of a spouse or partner

Know how long it will take to finish that last chapter - Time to Read is personalized based on your reading speed, and is constantly updated as your speed and habits change. At a glance you’ll know how much time it will take to finish a chapter or book

In-line footnotes - With a single tap, read the complete text of each footnote without losing your place in the book

Translate passages instantly - Tap any word or highlight a section to instantly translate it into other languages, including Spanish, Japanese, and more. Translations are provided by Bing Translator
