An hour with the Kindle Voyage

Recent reviews had me a little predisposed against the Kindle voyage, seems I was worrying too much. Quick first impressions:

  • Page turn buttons work great. Touch screen turns drove me nuts on my Paperwhite, and I may just keep the device just for this feature.
  • Screen pixel increase is nice, but not reason enough to update from Paperwhite.
  • Backlight looks more even than my Paperwhite first generation (which was notorious for darker corners).
  • The glass screen flush with case is wonderful.
  • Size is ok. Actually would have preferred a little bigger.
  • Back side is a fingerprint magnet. BTW, it actually has a magnet, probably for the case.

For reference, I bought the No Ads Wifi version.
