Amazon Kindle - Now with a Built-in Front Light

Reviewed by David • August 21, 2020

The question is: why wouldn't you buy Kindle?

For this year's Prime Day, I purchased the All-new Kindle for my wife.

It was just the perfect time to purchase the Kindle for her because she recently started reading the Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. I felt bad for her that the book was so bulky and heavy but more importantly she constantly had to pause from reading to look up words in dictionary with her iPhone.

We already have 8th generation Kindle and Paperwhite models for our children so I told her to try reading on it.
Well, she loved reading on the Kindle because it solved both of her pain points (weight and dictionary), making it more pleasent to read.

My wife and the kids ended up fighting for the Kindle to read their own book so it was a no-brainer to purchase a Kindle for my wife during the Prime Day.

When comparing this All-new Kindle with the previous model of Kindle that my son has:

[+] This new model has a built-in front light but previous model doesn't. The light doesn't strain your eyes like the back-lid lights found other devices such as iPad.
[+] this new model is slightly thinner and flat

Everything else is pretty much the same.

If you don't have Kindle, let me summarize why it's a must-have for book lovers (or watch my video):

✔️ You can read on Kindle for up to a month without charging.
✔️ There's no glare on the screen, even on bright sunny day outside.
✔️ It has a front-light rather than a back-light so there's no eye strain.
✔️ It's super light weighted.
✔️ The device doesn't get hot in your hands.
✔️ You can look up words instantly by clicking on the word you don't know while reading.
✔️ Vocabulary Builder - it remembers all the words you looked up and shows you the actual text from the book the word was looked up!

If you love to read books, I highly recommend Kindle. You will not regret it.
If you are willing to spend a little more, you can get Kindle Paperwhite, which has better resoultion, bigger storage, and is waterproof! I'm already thinking about upgrading my wife's kindle to Paperwhite so she can read it during a bubble bath or inside a pool.


10 out of 5 stars. Highly recommended.
You can now borrow e-books from your library and read it on Kindle!
