External reviews of Amazon Kindle 8
  • Amazon Kindle (2016) review: Very inexpensive, but just a little too basic

    Plus

    • Inexpensive
    • Well built, yet lightweight
    • Extraordinary battery life

    Minus

    • Low-resolution display
    • No backlight
    • Narrow bezels can result in inadvertent touchscreen interaction
    • "With special offers" models display ads on their lock screens

    ConclusionFor everything the All-New Kindle gets right, it gets enough wrong to keep us from recommending it. Its low-resolution display and the absence of a backlight keeps its cost low, but those shortcomings also rob the device of some of the things that make a modern e-reader a desirable purchase.
