I was confused by "front light".

I own the most recent version of the Paperwhite and also had an older one. They work perfectly for me. I always thought they had a back light - not a front light....

I actually found the answer in the reviews of all places. This is just the basic Kindle that now has an adjustable light.

quotes -

Q: Is this new model "paperwhite"?
A: no, this the latest generation of the "basic" Kindle model. The key improvement to this generation is the addition of a front-facing light similar to that of the Paperwhite but not at the same quality (4 lights vs. 5). The latest model Kindle Paperwhite was released last year and is still called the Kindle Paperwhite. Key differences (in my opinion at least) between this Kindle and the Paperwhite is that the Paperwhite has better screen resolution and is waterproof. Kindle Paperwhite also has the option for more storage space and cellular connectivity.


This is not the paperwhite
To be honest I was truly disappointed with this purchase and most of it is my fault I was looking for a Kindle paperwhite and this is all that was available at the store where I bought it. next time I will definitely order direct from Amazon
Overall it's a good Kindle not a paperwhite and the battery life gets drained very fast when using the lit screen.
Touch controls are a bit sluggish but then again it does what it said out to do provide an easy to use e-book experience.
Even the old paperwhite (at least four years ago) has 300ppi pixel density. This has 167ppi.
Paperwhite has twice the storage (8GB vs 4GB), higher resolution and much sharper text (300ppi vs 167), and is waterproof. The screen is also flush with the bezel rather than slightly recessed.

To take selfies. Just kidding. Backlight to read in the dark.

Hmmm. Woot has refurbished voyages for $70 and 2016 paper whites for $60. Thoughts on which is a better deal?

Man, I just bought one from Target like two weeks ago for $89. It's a great little device, they've really refined it over the years.

Edit: NM I got the paperwhite. Whew
