I have my old kindle keyboard gen 2 for 8 yrs now and the battery is slowly bled out. Having this one impress me in a lots of ways. The built in LED lights look impressive. Though for reading in the dark, the texts isn't as crisp as I'd like and there's a few tiny bright defect in the screen. The inverted screen does help a little. But compare to my old habit of reading in complete darkness at night on my OLED screen smart phone with really black background and pale yellow texts, it just not as easy on the eyes as that. I think this works better with some ambient light in the room. And also the battery, having this for a day only, I read with full light on, wifi on, for 1 hr and it drop from 100 to 90%. I don't think it will last weeks. I'll see how well it fare as I use it.
So for the main reason I bought this, I want a glare free, eink device that can handle some pdfs as well as ebooks. The ebooks functions is spotless. And while I knew from some reviews that reading PDFs on this one won't be that practical. But compare to my old kindle, this works fairly well. Some lags on zooming pictures and diagrams, I can still read them. Works best with mostly texts PDFs. The screen is sure small, but since I can zoom or go into landscape mode, I don't have much problems with that.
This is an international version with no ads.
Plus points, I ordered this on Monday and got it on Saturday of the same week which is way much earlier than expected. Very fast for shipping from US to Thailand.
I got the microusb charger cable in the box and I understand that there's no adapter included. I don't mind it that much because I still got the old kindle charger amd I also can charge this with my powerbank, notebook, and mobilephone charger.
