fine but not brilliant,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kindle Touch Wi-Fi - R (Electronics)
This replaced a keypad Kindle which I really liked but that model is no longer available. My main criticism in having a touch screen for a reader is that it can be touched accidentally, losing one's place. I preferred the right hand click button on my older device as it was more positive.
Also, it doesn't fit my previous Kindle cover, although the screen is the same size, the device is lighter and smaller. Now I have to pay £30 at least for a new cover.
Although I am used to touch screen devices, I don't find this one particularly easy to use.
Battery runs down very quickly. Less than 24hrs if you are connected to wi fi
On the plus side, it is very slim and light and text is clear.
