To be brutally honest, however, none of the 2019 Amazon Kindle’s failings affect its overall appeal. Although it isn't quite the cheapest Kindle, the addition of a front light and Bluetooth connectivity mean it’s clearly the best-value Kindle in the range. If you’re looking for a cheap replacement f...

Overall, you get a compact Kindle with a front-lit display with less storage at a lower price. If you’ve used a Kindle Paperwhite with a 300 ppi display, it’s hard to go back down to display with 167 ppi. But for those seeking their first foray into a Kindle on a budget, this is it. Nothing beats re...

With the Kindle 9, Amazon has stripped away another reason to buy the more expensive Paperwhite. The frontlight makes the basic Kindle more versatile than ever, meaning you can read in pretty much any lighting condition. It doesn’t sound a lot, but that’s a big step up for the cheapest Kindle, becau...

At a price of Rs. 7999, this is the best Kindle with a built-in light you can get for the price. If you need a high-resolution screen, more storage and a waterproof body, go for the new Paperwhite, if you can spend more

- Srivatsan Sridhar, Fone Arena

We still think the Paperwhite is the best value for money Kindle around (even if you go for the previous editions, which are available at lower prices) if you really want to do some heavy duty e-book reading, but if you are just starting out with e-books and/or are on tight budget, the All New Kindl...

To be brutally honest, however, none of the 2019 Amazon Kindle’s failings affect its overall appeal. Although it isn't quite the cheapest Kindle, the addition of a front light and Bluetooth connectivity mean it’s clearly the best-value Kindle in the range. If you’re looking for a cheap replacement for your ageing 5th-generation Kindle, then, or perhaps something even older, take my advice and just go out and buy yourself one of these new models. You most certainly will not regret it.

Overall, you get a compact Kindle with a front-lit display with less storage at a lower price. If you’ve used a Kindle Paperwhite with a 300 ppi display, it’s hard to go back down to display with 167 ppi. But for those seeking their first foray into a Kindle on a budget, this is it. Nothing beats reading without the distractions of push notifications, emails, messages and more. Plus, the front lit display allows your eyes to take a rest from backlit LCDs.

With the Kindle 9, Amazon has stripped away another reason to buy the more expensive Paperwhite. The frontlight makes the basic Kindle more versatile than ever, meaning you can read in pretty much any lighting condition. It doesn’t sound a lot, but that’s a big step up for the cheapest Kindle, because at their heart low-cost e-readers are about convenience.

If sometime in the future, technology enables a paper-like texture that is matte or better still grungy or relatively rough, it would mimic paper in the true sense.

If sometime in the future, technology enables a paper-like texture that is matte or better still grungy or relatively rough, it would mimic paper in the true sense. Till then, we got to settle for the second best experience to paper. And with that as reference, the Kindle does offer you that. Since I’m again not a big proponent of the higher end Kindle readers, the Kindle 2019 is a product worth buying if you want to stay away from your smartphone to read.

A basic e-reader

If all you want to do is read then this is right up your alley. It is cheap, small and lightweight, easy to set-up and use, can be used in any lighting scenario and is of course backed by the biggest e-book store in the world, Amazon’s Kindle Store.

The Kindle (2019) is one of Amazon's most affordable Kindle devices. It is true there is no waterproofing and the display, which can prove to be store house for dust and breadcrumbs, looks a little less exciting but if you can look past that, a front-display and all the Kindle-y features that I have mentioned before at a price less than Rs 10,000 make the Kindle (2019) a total catch.

Offers a solid reading experience at a great price

from ZDNet

If you do not need any water resistance on a Kindle, this all-new one should be perfect for the masses. The reading experience was excellent and I did not see any significant difference in performance between it and my Kindle Oasis.

Just doesn't have enough features to justify the price hike

from NDTV

If you're okay with paying a premium just for the front light, the Kindle (10th Gen) won't disappoint you. However, most people could just get the lower priced Kindle at Rs. 5,999 along with an affordable clip-on light attachment. It might not be elegant solution but it does the same thing at a lower price.
