Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 February 2022
I bought a Barnes & Noble Nook back in 2013 (!!), for £29. This Paperwhite (or should I say paperweight!) cost over £100 for a slightly bigger screen and slightly brighter. But the interface is absolutely terrible and all over the place. The collections interaction is almost non-existent, and book manipulation on the Amazon Kindle page is like it was written by a teenager on his first computer class. And don't get me started on the PC Kindle App.
Amazon, you need professional developers to write the software, clearly no investment in this product. Considering the amount of profit Amazon must be making on these (compared to the superior Nook), maybe Jeff Bezos should spend less money on rockets, and more on Amazon products. Battery life is looking pretty dodgy too compared to the Nook which is still going strong after 9 years. Think I'll go back to the Nook, and return the Paperwhite..
