The latest Amazon Kindle comes with a front-lit screen, which was one of biggest reasons why people opted for the more expensive Paperwhite. As we said in our review, the lack of lighting was the last big deal-breaker for the most basic e-reader — unless you read in the bath and waterproofing is a must-have. Only the $130 Paperwhite and the high-end Kindle Oasis can survive being submerged in water. We gave the basic Kindle a score of 91 primarily for the fact that you can use it to read in the dark, but also for having better contrast and a smaller and sleeker design than its predecessor.
