Update 2: Amazon replaced my Kindle but the new one has even worse battery life than the original one. It also shipped with a USB calbe that is defective and can't fit in the USB port. Charged the kindle yesterday and it went from fully charged to 40% in a few hours. When I turned it on this morning it was 13% and this is with airplane mode turned on and screen turned right off. Horrbile.
Update: After having this for some time, I'm going back to my old earlier model. Lucky if I can get 2 days from the battery. When pages turn the text goes distorted and it's very distracting. Not good.
This kindle is slower turning pages and the battery doesn't stay charged as long as my previous Paperwhite. Waste of money upgrading to this new one. Also the charging cable that came with didn't fit and I had to buy a new one.
