4.0 out of 5 stars Improved screen still no audible in Australia though
By Ryan tiernov on 1 November 2021
This screen is definitely an improvement over the last generation Paperwhite almost 1:1 with the physical book I'm reading ( ansible for DevOps by Jeff Geerling )

The audible store still doesn't load unfortunately. Looks like they have region locked it as reviews on YouTube show the US has access to audible from these devices no issues.

Overall this new kindle is quite a lot better to the last generation kindle. it's much more responsive and the larger screen makes a big difference

5.0 out of 5 stars Faster than ever with a larger screen!
By Wade on 27 October 2021
LOVE this bad boy! Genuinely looks like paper, the size and weight is excellent, USB C charging finally and a screen that feels closer to the size of a typical paperback. Response time is great and better than anticipated after watching some videos of older paperwhite models online. Highly recommended, perfect all rounder and I love reading on it.

**Update**
I see other reviews mentioning old software running on this device, I plugged my Kindle into my computer to charge and don't know if this is why, but mine is absolutely running on the latest version of the software in Australia. Hope this helps some people.
