Amazon’s All-new Kindle Paperwhite comes along just in time. While we’ve loved prior versions, the e-reader hasn’t changed much since its debut in 2012, aside from incremental upgrades such as better front-lighting, additional storage and a few software tweaks. Its most recent version, from 2015, was losing ground to similarly priced competitors such as the Kobo Clara HD.

With the All-new Kindle Paperwhite, Amazon’s not only managed to catch up to the competition, it’s lapped them. The new e-reader’s premium features, reasonable price, and wide variety of content make it the best e-reader for most people.
