Buying guide for the Kindle Paperwhite 4GB
Ever since the latest Kindle Paperwhite 4 was released in Singapore beginning this year, the device is highly demanded. It is easy to explain why, due to its’ attractive specifications at an affordable price below $200. The latest Paperwhite 4 will certainly be a good upgrade from the older Kindle Paperwhite 3. Here are the reasons why and find out where you can get a Kindle Paperwhite 4 with GeekBite! -----> You don't wanna miss out on this great read
Water resistant, IPX8 rating
The most significant improvement to the Kindle Paperwhite 4 is the resistance to water. Kindle Paperwhite 4 comes with a IPX8 rating, which means the device passed the tests to withstand immersion in 2 meters of fresh water up to 60 minutes.
The fact that the slim and portable device is safe in contact with water will encourage many users to read more often in the bathtub or take the Paperwhite on active holidays.
In terms of the display used for the Kindle Paperwhite 4 has not changed. It’s the 1448 × 1072 px, 6-inch E-Ink Carta touchscreen offering 300 ppi pixel density. Both have backlights, but Paperwhite 4 features 5 backlight LEDs instead of 4. This additional LED keeps the front lighting more uniform across the flush screen.
Kindle Paperwhite 4 is also aesthetically more pleasing with the added smooth glass layer and without the raised bezels found on the older model. This gives the kindle an overall more premium feel and should help keep water from invading its circuits.
The Paperwhite 4 is also thinner and lighter. It measures 167 mm x 116 mm x 8.18 mm and weighs 182 grams. The Paperwhite 3 measures 169 mm x 117 mm x 9.1 mm and weighs 205 grams.
The Kindle Paperwhite 4 now also comes installed with a Bluetooth chip. The Bluetooth will enable you to connect headphones or a speaker, and this is a way to listen to Audible audiobooks on your Kindle Paperwhite 4.
Audiobooks you own from Audible will appear alongside your books and can be downloaded to the device. Access to the Audible store is also possible from the device, and purchase of audible books can be made.
NOTE: None of the Kindle models offered from 2018 onwards has a headphone jack. You will need to buy Bluetooth earpieces or speakers to listen to audiobooks on your Kindle.
Increased Storage Space
With the demand for more storage space, the new generation of Kindle Paperwhite 4 has finally heeded the request.
Kindle Paperwhite 4 doubles its’ storage space from Kindle Paperwhite 3’s 4GB to 8GB.
8 GB – approximately 6 GB are available to the user, the rest are used for the operating system and default apps (dictionary, kindle store etc). You will be able to download 4000 to 6000 of ebooks, or approximately 30 – 40 full-length audiobooks in standard quality.
