Amazon.ca launched a brand new Kindle Paper-White last month and debuted its first waterproof version of this e-reader since it was released in the fall of 2012. Here's our short review of this latest Paperwhite after Amazon Canada Sent it to us to check out.
Unboxing Kindle Paper White and Leather Cover (Punch Red)
The new 2018 Kindle Paperwhite still has the same 12-LED 6 liter front display with 300 ppi as the previous seventh generation, but this time it's physical footprint 1
Within the box you will find Kindle yourself, some instructions and a micro USB cable to charge the e-reader.
Below is the only button on the bottom of Kindle (it's shining black, it's just reflection from our window):

For Amazon Kindle Paper White Leather Cover, it fits nicely and tightly with e-reader and has a nice microfibre cover on the inside to protect the Kindle display. When you open the cover, it automatically turns your Kindle. When you close the cover, your Kindle is going to sleep.
The leather cover adds a little Kindle Paper White, but it's not that bad:

10th Generation Kindle Paperwhite
This new Paper White comes with higher storage options of 8GB and 32GB (instead of 4GB with it the previous generation Paperwhite).
With the device's IPX8 rating, this Kindle Paperwhite can withstand immersion for up to an hour in up to two feet of fresh water. This means that if you travel a lot on the beach with Kindle Paperwhite, this model is available.
We have used an older Kindle Paperwhite before and after playing with this 2018 model, and some similar experiences come in mind.
First, the front display remains excellent. Text is crisp and clear on the high resolution screen, while refresh rates are still not instant, as is the case with e-ink displays. Reading on Kindle The paper white screen still feels like reading text on paper (the picture below included with Kindle at maximum brightness):
The front-lighted LEDs have a backlit LCD backlit like the one on iPad or iPhone. There are no bright lights that shine in your face and cause eye strain. Instead, the light points on the display so you can rest your eyes for once, this day in the digital age. You basically have an excellent, well-lit reading experience, anywhere.
When I get a chance to read Kindle Paperwhite, the best part, apart from the sharp screen, is the fact that there are no distractions, such as reading on an iPad, for example. All you have in your hands is your e-book and paper white. No iMessage or any other messages to break the concentration (sure you can turn on DND on your iOS device, but who actually does.)
Amazon has also spiked with Kindle Paperwhite to the online Kindle store, as the device has built-in Wi-Fi.
In terms of reading, there are a variety of options in the settings for changing font (ten to choose), text size, bold, margins and more.
There are no buttons on this Kindle Paper White, so you turn on the page you tap on the screen or swipe left / right on the touch screen.
To get to settings or home, just touch the top of the screen and the menu appears with options to go home, back, settings, goodreads, store and search.
I did not fully test battery life, but Amazon announces it for weeks. With e-monitors, they get energy. The battery life will depend on your Wi-Fi usage and display brightness settings. You have Kindle Paperwhite in standby mode. Basically, after a full charge, these Kindles last long (battery life lasts too long when you do not read and instead eat Cheetos on the couch).
