Dive into your favorite books with the Kindle Voyage.

Kindles have revolutionized the e-reader industry. Thanks to new updates, slender portable designs, touchscreen interfaces, and battery life have all improved. Amazon's most recent high-end e-reader is the Kindle Voyage. Its 6-inch e-reader brings a high-resolution screen, automatic brightness control, and a soft-touch finish.

Grab your reading glasses and peruse your favorite titles on the Kindle Voyage 6″ e-Reader. Amazon's new tech has made it easier than ever to leave those hardcover books behind and save a lot of space in your bags. For those who would normally prefer a hard copy, we encourage you to try the Kindle. The Voyage's 6-inch anti-glare display screen offers a clarity of 330 ppi, closely replicating a printed page.

Kindle Voyage 6″ E-Reader Features and Benefits

A Sleek New Design

Have you ever noticed that the newest pieces of technology have become more sleek and compact? The Kindle Voyage features a slim plastic and magnesium shell, with a decreasing thickness from top to bottom. Measuring only 7.6mm thin, the Voyage can be comfortably held for hours of reading. The design was intended to resemble a sheet of paper, with a clean streamlined appearance.

At the front, a single pane spans the display screen. It is much more aesthetically pleasing than previous devices. More importantly, it is easier to turn the page with a right or left swipe, as your fingers no longer hit the bezel.

The screen itself also seems smoother and more responsive to touch. This is the best touchscreen e-reader we've seen to-date, being notably faster than the Kindle Paperwhite. Both sides of the screen are framed by touch-sensitive buttons, called a PagePress. The larger buttons on the bottom are used to go to the next page, while the buttons on top are used to go back. You can customize the sensitivity of these buttons.

High Resolution 300 PPI Display Screen

Besides being conveniently thin and light, the Kindle Voyage also has a brilliantly crisp display screen. What makes it different? The 300 ppi screen features a sharp, dark text that reads like a printed page. A micro-etched glass displays softly diffused light to completely eliminate that annoying screen glare and match the appearance of regular paper. Among the e-readers on the market, the Kindle Voyage shines brighter than them all. It features the brightest, highest resolution screen, and best-contrasting display of any previous Kindle.

Perhaps what is most remarkable is that the screen's light adjusts with you. Take your Kindle Voyage to the sunniest beach or in your bedroom at night – its tech is smart enough to know the difference. Its new front light automatically adapts to changes in light in your environment and can be further fine-tuned to your unique preferences. When night reading, the front light adapts by slowly reducing the display's brightness over time to imitate the way your own eyes respond to darkness.

Text and Interface

Amazon listened to consumer reviews and updated the interface on the Kindle Voyage. Refined icons are a clear change from old designs and stand out on today's higher resolution display screens. The home screen has undergone some updates as well. Now, the title of the text you are reading is visible on the page, in addition to current text samples and wish list entries on the right-hand side. Recommendations for books tailored to your reading preferences appear below.

This update also brings a new reading font, called Bookerly. This font was designed for e-readers and is legible in all of its sizes. Text flows more naturally line by line. Overall, the result is a cleaner appearance.

For families, the Kindle Voyager offers a Family Sharing system option. This allows two adults and up to four children to share e-books freely, so you don’t have to purchase the same text twice. For younger children, there is also a parental control feature to restrict parts of the library.

The Kindle Voyager Reads Like a Book

Did we mention it reads like a book? One of our favorite new features allows you to flip through books without losing your place. The new feature PageFlip makes it easier than ever to skim, browse photos, highlights, and notes from other books while holding your place in the book you're currently reading. While you swipe to other pages or zoom out, PageFlip automatically saves the spot you're on, pinning your page to the sidebar.

You can also export and share your notes and highlights. This is particularly useful for students using their Kindle Voyage on the go. When exported, the notes are sent directly to your email for convenient access. You'll receive your notes as a printable PDF document ready to bring to your book club or as a simple file for spreadsheets.

It's lighter than a paperback and easy to read with just one hand. So go ahead and dive into a mystery novel you just can't seem to put down. Unlike your phone or tablet, Kindle doesn't distract you with social media, text messages, and email notifications. By design, it's built for purposeful reading. So go ahead, lose yourself in a good book.
