Compared with my partners old keyboard kindle the paperwhite screen is awesome. Easier to read in every situations. I'd like a physical page turn button, but it's not a big deal for me.
timmmay: I don't watch videos, they're too slow, but if they were common it probably wouldn't have a 4.5 star rating.
MurrayM: So the problems that the guy in the video below saw aren't at all common?
MurrayM: Ok, thanks for confirming that he just had a dud device.
mattwnz: The one in the video is an extreme case, but it isn't as uniform as shown on the kindle website either. You do get some darker patches near the bottom of the screen.
qyiet: I watched the video on mute. Looks like the guy had the thing cranked to max, and then took photos in the dark to try and make his problem look as spectacular as possible. Here is mine at max bright, then the brightness I use, and then in the dark. I can see slight discolorations when I crank the brightness right up, but on my regular setting I never notice anything.
mattwnz: If it is side lit, I don't think it is ever going to be perfectly lit. Personally I never use the light anyway.
