What light setting do you use on your Paperwhite?

The instructions say to have it very low in dark rooms but bright in light environments. I quite like mine pretty brightly lit in darker rooms as it makes the text seem crisper - so I leave it on 18 all the time.

What's your preference?

12 or 13 everywhere.

10 for me. I rarely read it in total darkness or really bright light though.

I always have mine on the lowest or very low settings, but my eyes are sensitive to bright lights

Queen I got mine for Christmas and as I say have had it on 18 constantly, but have noticed my eyes have felt a bit strained. I thought it was because I needed new glasses, but having got them last week my eyes were still getting achy! I've just read for an hour in dim light with the light set to 12 and what do you know, no achy eyes. So maybe I'm more sensitive to light than I thought! Much more comfortable, I think I'll stick with this smile

I like it on 8, otherwise it hurts my eyes.

High, about 18, in the day and about 9 in the evenings. When I read in bed it'll be the only light source so low is perfectly adequate.

Mine is on 7...and I keep it in airplane mode to save battery, hope that helps!!

5 at night or DH moans it keeps him awake.
I would have it about 12 during the day.

My voyage is on 11 or 12, less during the night.

Just checked and mines on 3

3?? how can you even see it? i have mine on about 8

Moogletea Thu 27-Apr-17 21:04:40

I do most reading from it at night in bed with the light off so it's perfect. I've never thought about adjusting it when reading in the train but I will from now on - it's never crossed my mind really to change it!

Usually on 10 or 11

2 or 3. I read it in bed with the light off mostly.

bruffin Thu 27-Apr-17 21:14:01

7 but only read in the dark

Chillidawg Thu 27-Apr-17 21:46:24

8 all the time
Only just found the control, hit MAX by mistake and boo-d myself blush

Mimsy what's the Voyage like? I've looked at them online but my paperwhite is absolutely fine still.
I do wonder if they're much superior though.

I have mine on 6 all the time. I read in bed in the dark and can see it well at that setting and it just looks like it's unlit in the daytime and I like it like that.

I have sensitive eyes so all electronics are on the lowest possible, but I find the Paperwhite to still be quite bright.

SoupDragon Wed 03-May-17 16:45:53

Mines on 3.

On 4 all the time, bright screens make me headachy.

BlueChairs Wed 03-May-17 17:12:06

19 😊

Usually on about 13 as I read it during the day or evening with house lights on. If I read in the night I would turn it down to five or six. I just tried it in the dark on number 3 and I wouldn't be able to read that and I don't need glasses confused
