I like that I can hold my K3 in one hand while standing on the bus/metro and turn pages with that hand -- swiping is a two-hander!

I can kinda cradle my paperwhite with one hand with my thumb kinda hovering over the screen, it's hard to explain.

But I see what you're saying.

I used my Kindle Keyboard to receive and send email via Gmail yesterday. Still works fine, if you don't count the errors I made typing email addresses! I made an ebook of my email contact list, to use when I am in the county without phone or computer access. I've been most grateful to have my old Kindle with me on trips to Central America and the Caribbean also.

Good idea! I never thought about doing that!

I tried a Paperwhite in 2013 and I found that I preferred the look of my KK's screen. In daytime conditions the screen is whiter and the contrast is higher, it just looks more crisp.

Yesterday I got the 2018 PW to see how things have evolved and it's exactly the same. In certain conditions the PW's screen does look more 'papery' but I still find the text harder to read.

I did try the font bolding option which actually makes a big difference but at night time I still found the contrast lacking, what should be black is more of a ghostly grey.

I could actually live with these problems but the single biggest annoyance for me was trying to tap footnote symbols in the text. Four out of five taps didn't register and any footnote symbols at the top of the page completely fail to register as the main kindle menu bar overrides them.

Looks like I'll be returning another PW and staying with my dusty, cracked Kindle Keyboard for now.

You can still use 3G where there is a good AT&T connection, but after this year, I think AT&T is the only 3G going (they plan to discontinue 3G by 2021). So, if you really NEED cell connection, you're going to have to upgrade to a Paperwhite or Oasis soon. They have 4G already.
