I prefer the mechanical ones too, but I would have had a much easier time with the haptic on the Voyage if there was more bezel to hold on to the device while pressing. That has been my issue. They are placed in such a way that it keeps slipping out of my hand because I am trying not to encroach on the screen with my thumb. I have small hands so I need something to hold on to.
Which raises the question, why not just go ahead and the tap the screen instead of trying to hit a narrow vaguely defined strip. Some things don't need to be reinvented

I like the page turn buttons on the Kindle keyboard the best. Some complained about accidental presses, but for me they were placed exactly right and had the best feel when clicked. The haptic buttons are useless for me. I like to see and feel where I'm supposed to press.
I like the 3's keys also. Actually there is a lot I still like about the Kindle Keyboard. I like reading on it better than on my Kindle Basic (8th generation) and it (now) definitely handles "Send to Kindle" files better than the Kindle Basic. I can also use my Kobo Cliip Light on it.

Don't be sad, just replace the battery. Kindle Voyages appear to be about the easiest Kindles made for replacing batteries.

I think you can get the battery elsewhere for a little less.

For a different perspective—I really like the haptic buttons on my Voyage. I prefer them over regular buttons and over tapping/swiping on a screen. I can hold my Voyage with my tomb resting on the button and just give the unit a slight squeeze when I’m ready to turn the page.

I would love to see a 7 or 8 inch device in the voyage form. It is more than thin enough and had a hell better battery life than the Oasis

Tell me about it - I have the Oasis 2 that I received on Friday. But I don't think I'll be able to cope with the battery life, so I am thinking it might go back to Amazon. I'll stick with my Voyage for a few more years, until either a new Voyage comes out, or they seriously upgrade the battery in the Oasis 2/3/4!

Which raises the question: why move your finger over and tap, when a button is right under your finger?

I'd like to see a reader with the haptic functionality in the entire bezel and where I can define where I need to press to page advance, so I can hold the reader in a way which is most comfortable to me.

any idea if the Voyage can be upgraded with more storage space?

Nope. It doesn't use an internal SD card.

And before anyone asks: no other Kindles do, either.

Internal storage on an SD card instead of an eMMC chip on lower-end devices is a Kobo staple, not Amazon's .
