There is an ambient light sensor which will automatically adjust the brightness to suit your environment. It will also adjust the brightness gradually so it's less noticeable. This also means that you will be able to read at night, or in dark rooms without needing a lamp or flashlight. See More
The screen is flush with the bezel on the Kindle Voyage, unlike the more affordable Kindles (original Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite). This means there are no shadows from the bezel, and also swiping across to turn the page feels much nicer as well. See More
While fairly large, this Kindle' page turn buttons are capacitive, which means that you may accidentally press them if the sensitivity is turned up too much, or it may be difficult to find and press them if the sensitivity is too low. Plus they aren't backlit which makes finding them in the dark harder. See More
Page turn buttons are back on this version of the Kindle (they used to be available on older Kindles, but were missing on the previous generation). There are two capacitive page turning buttons on either side - 4 in total. The long strips are for next page, and the small dot is for the previous page. This makes it easy to turn the pages whether you are left or right handed. The long page forward button means it should be fairly easy to find in the dark, even though it isn't backlit. See More
In either case, for DRM'd or non DRM'd media, connect the Kobo Aura One to your personal computer using a USB cable. For transferring borrowed DRM'd ebooks to the device, drag and drop via Adobe Digital Editions. For non-DRM'd personal ebooks, pdfs etc onto the Kobo Aura One, simply drag and drop files onto the Kobo with the Finder or Explorer. See More
This e-reader changes color temperature manually or based on a schedule of your choosing. This is helpful for people who like to read at night but still want to sleep well. Light with a blue component (most colors of light including various shades of white, with the exception of pure red light) prevents the production of melatonin which is the chemical responsible for that tired feeling that makes sleeping easy. Darker warmer colors are also much more comfortable to read in dim lighting. See More
