Amazon has doubled its storage space, which is a great thing. 16GB means you can have many more books than you used to. The battery life of the Kindle is also great. Amazon says it can last six weeks on a single charge. We’ve been using it for two weeks and it’s not even 60%, so that claim is certainly true.
There are some nice features in the Kindle. Like X-Ray, which allows you to explore the characters and certain key terms of a book’s plot, and get important details about the people or places mentioned. There’s also Smart Lookup, which lets you look up words in the dictionary, translate text into another language, and explore Wikipedia while reading with a tap.
You can also adjust the font size to your personal preference and use the highlighting feature to save concepts, themes, and insights as you read, so you can revisit them later. Just tap, hold and drag to create a highlight.
