  1. Honest Opinion

    I’ve now had my 32Gb Kindle Scribe for just over 2 weeks.

    I’ve been using it every day, during working hours as a note taker during meetings and for quiet brainstorming and after hours to read. I do most reading sitting on a couch or in bed before sleep.

    I still carry it with the care of a newborn child because it is so thin and slippery. I don’t know how fragile it is but I don’t want to find out. The device is beautifully made and finished and I don’t want to put a blemish on it.

    The battery life is pretty good. I charged it on day 1 and after solid use it’s at around 42%. That’s on day 15. That’s impressive.

    I’ve got the premium pen but don’t use the eraser on the back because one needs to press it quite firmly to depress the spring in the cap to activate the eraser function. That makes me worry about the screen getting scratched. Instead I’ve assigned the eraser to the middle button.

    Anyway making notes is a breeze as is organising them into notebooks and folders.

    I’m also a published author and am between books. I can see how this will be an absolutely awesome editor when I start my next book. It’s so easy to add notes into a book.

    An interesting thing I’ve found is that notes are visible on the Android Kindle app. Unfortunately one can’t interact with them except take a screenshot. It would be nice to be able to interact with notes on the app.

    Anyway as a reader it’s so much nicer than my Paperwhite. I get so do much more on the screen and love how I can make the screen warmer. The one downside of making it warmer is a reduction in sharpness. But overall it’s so much nicer to have more words on the screen. It feels much like reading a real paperback.

    At the start I felt the size and thinness a bit awkward while lying down but I’ve gotten used to it and have adjusted my grip. The muscles must have grown in the fingers I use to hold it and I can easily hold it in my left hand.

    I’m really glad i bought this and know that I’m going to get real good use out of it.

    Battery life is fabulous. Reading is easy on this thing. It is light, has a big screen and allows me to read before sleeping without distractions of an iPad. I also 3D printed a small stand that sits on me when laying down. Works great.

    Great e-reader performance if you like a slightly larger book then your typical paperback size, this will be a great size for you. Typical Kindle screen performance and readability.

    Now to the “Scribe” functionality. Works as described and is a pleasure to write on. Pen could be a little thicker and I find the button on the side of premium pen occasionally gets accidentally pressed while writing.

    Importing your own PDF’s and files is easy and writing on them is a breeze. You can definitely use the scribe as a notepad replacement. A few more pen options and ability to insert or create shapes would be handy.

    Ability to add your own templates to the notes section or import PDF forms as templates to fill in and ability to save as a new document/file is needed. You may be able to do this already an I just haven’t worked out how yet. Really easy learning curve, especially if you have previously had a Kindle. Set up was done in under 10 minutes and I had my own PDF’s and folders sorted in under 30 minutes.

    It would be well served with a bit more powerful processor but its not super critical and I am probably more of a power user, one of the PDF’s I’m using is a Daily Organizer replacement with 2000+ pages that are fully hyperlinked.

    For less then 1 day of use its replaced a diary, multiple note books, a telephone message pad, a hand-full of hard copy forms and the list is quickly growing. My next project will be to load product catalogs and product spec cheat sheets. It has enough functions as it is to easily integrate into my existing work flow.

    If Amazon added a rear camera so you can attach/insert pics to PDF’s would make this a truly versatile tool without going to a full tablet.

    I moved from Remarkable 2 to Kindle Scribe and I do love the Kindle Scribe more than the Remarkable 2.
    What I love:

    Ability to send pdf documents easily to Scribe
    Ability to write in Kindle books
    Ability to use as Note taking device
    Decent screen size
    Backlit display
    Premium pen was excellent to write
    Many other things

    What I dont like:
    Not waterproof. Just too worried to take the device out. Melbourne weather can change instantly. So was hard to protect.
    Constant wifi drop out
    When there is no wifi it doesn’t open the books and notepad. Keeps displaying errors. This is my most pain point.
    Browser has very limited functionality and doesn’t really format the pages.
    No ability to hide specific book from a device.
    Organising books is not easy and it doesn’t sync across scribe and other devices

    I chose this over the kobo elipsa even though i prefer kobo generally, but the features on this were reviewed elsewhere as really good and the big kobo isn’t there yet.
    I love this tablet.. i got the basic pen and 16gb version and don’t yet find any limitations by getting the smallest one. The pen is great and doesn’t need battery or charging or anything so thats my style of device.
    I’m reading a lot more with this than with my kobo h2o because i can see a whole “page” at a time so its more relaxing. Its too big to carry to work though really so its an “at home” device for me. Its roughly same weight as an ipad.
    So far haven’t used the notetaking extensively but writing feels very easy and good. The marks made and speed it renders on the screen are great. Generally the speed is a significant improvement on any ereader i’ve previously tried. I guess faster cpu etc takes battery but a super quick ereader would bring these things more into mainstream use, cos people expect instant stuff these days.
    In short – i’m glad i got this.
    I took one star off cos images in epubs cannot be enlarged and render quite small on the pages. Its possible though that there is a shortcut i don’t know about to make them bigger. If i ever find it i’ll edit this review.
