I'm writing this after using this kindle for six months.
WHAT THIS KINDLE HAVE AND PAPERWHITE DOESN'T::: this kindle has a "Voiceview screen reader", it means if you connect to a bluetooth speaker it will read the book aloud for you. this option is not there in paperwhite..
battery::: at beginning when you charge once you can use it for a week, but no it drains in five to six days an it also depends on how much you read. also, if you switch on wifi then battery may drain in two days or even quicker. you should e on airplane mode to get good battery life. when you connect to your computer it takes one and half hour to two hours to charge full. when it got fully charged indicating light turn to green from orange.
screen::: it have touch screen, which is so sensitive. when you are reading if a house fly sits on screen it activates the screen and it will show the meaning of the word where it sat(long touch to see a meaning of unknown word). you can slide even with a pen cap. screen is a bit inside to its border frame so dust formation at the corners and it is difficult to clean. you can change the font size to make the letters biggers or smaller. it also provide landscape view(change in settings). it shows battery and time on right top.
flipcover::: flipcover is also important, because you need not to press the power but when you start or finish reading. when you close it automatically goes in power saving mode. when you open it, it shows what you are reading. if you press the power button and off the screen you get even good battery life.
dictionary::: kindle has oxford dictionary pre installed and you can also download merriam-webster's dictionary also. it has other language to english dictionaries ( like german, italian, french, japanese, chinese, gujarathi, malayalam..) but you need to download them. kindle also has word wise, when you switch it on kindle shows meaning for tough word just above the word(you need nor to again do anything). but some books doesnt have this option.
reading experience::: at first it may be inconvenient, but on use it feels normal. there are lot of book on kindle store. but when you read pdf, it is very inconvenient, this is not for pdf files. also the processing speed not good, it feels very slow. it stores lots of books may be hundred. there will be no distractions, no ads or anything you can totally concentrate on what you read.
glare::: if you go into intense sun it gives glare like shine. but in normal conditions it is good.
browser::: it has experimental browser when you connects to wifi, it can connect to wikipedia and to google. but slowly.
