Amazon Paperwhite 3 vs Kindle Voyage – Glowlight Test


The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 3 is the latest e-reader to hit the market and it has the same screen technology as found on the Kindle Voyage. You might get a very similar reading experience on both of these devices, but once you compare them side by side with the lights out, the Voyage surpasses the Paperwhite 3.

Good e-Reader recently conducted an extensive video comparison between the Amazon Kindle Voyage and the Paperwhite 3. The Voyage provided a superior experience when reading in the dark, because there are fundamental differences between the two models.

The Kindle Voyage screen is totally flush with the bezel, much akin to a smartphone or tablet. This warrants a different approach to the illumination engine because of the way the physical screen is constructed. Peter and I are very sure that Amazon must be using different LED technology because of the way the hardware is constructed. In contrast, the Paperwhite 3 has a small dip between the screen and the bezel, and this model actually uses an older front-lit display.
