The Kindle Voyage is the king of Amazon’s range of e-book readers, which also features the entry-level Kindle and the impressive Kindle Paperwhite e-readers. The incredibly thin and light device boasts the best features available on a Kindle, including a glass-covered bright display with lighting and dedicated page buttons.
Where to Buy Kindle Voyage Reader

Fitting of its position in the line-up, the Kindle Voyage shows off a premium streamlined design with a flush, ‘specially-reinforced’ glass front and magnesium rear.
You are looking at a reader that is not only sleek, but also rugged. It claims the crown of the slimmest Kindle to date at a thickness of only 7.6 millimetres. The Voyage is also the lightest touchscreen Kindle weighing just 181 grams – lighter than the regular Kindle and Paperwhite models.
Amazon Kindle Voyage has probably the best display you have seen on an e-book reader. It features a spectacular 6-inch Carta E Ink touch display with a pixel density of 300 pixels per inch, making for impressive clarity.
Although the screen is similar to the one used on the cheaper Kindle Paperwhite, it is brighter with better contrast. The micro-etched glass display is designed to diffuse light seamlessly to help deal with glare when reading.
The Kindle Voyage reader features a new adaptive front light which adjusts screen brightness to the environment, making it easy to read comfortably in direct sunlight or dark environment.
Performance and Battery Life
Like its siblings, the Kindle Voyage is equipped with a processor clocked at 1 GHz. It comes with higher RAM of 1GB capacity for better performance than the other readers can muster. However, the device has similar 4GB of internal storage with no storage expansion slot.
It must be said that the storage space can still hold thousands of e-books, so no need to be put off by storage, plus you get unlimited cloud storage for every content you buy from Amazon.
The battery can last up to six weeks on a single charge when you do half-hour reading a day with the Wi-Fi turned off. But the battery life is surprisingly shorter than that of the Kindle Paperwhite which is rated at eight weeks.
Amazon Kindle Voyage comes in Wi-Fi only or Wi-Fi + 3G models. It features PagePress, a custom-designed force sensor, which allows you turn pages with ease – just apply pressure on the bezel to turn to the next or previous page.
Amazon Kindle Voyage boasts enhanced search as well as other interest features such as Page Flow, Word Wise, X-Ray (Bones of the Book) and Vocabulary Builder.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite gives you access to millions of books priced at $2.99 (595 Naira) or less.
