I have just bought a Kindle and am surprised by what seems to be a very cumbersome way of turning to next page. I seem to have to prod the screen and then there is a sort of fade out and in before next page appears, which certainly breaks the flow. I am comparing this with my iPhone where the pages just flick over like a book. Is this how it is meant to work?
Just tried pressing the screen to move forward or backwards.
Hi, is this a Kindle Fire that you got?
It is a Kindle touch 3g
Thank you.Please slide the power button and HOLD it for a full minute.Then let go, and wait until the Kindle resets and reboot.Page flips/refreshes should now be faster and (almost) smooth.Thanks,J.
Sorry to be stupid but I don't even know where the power button is or how to turn the thing off!
Oh, not a problem.The power button is on the bottom, next to the charge connect. Push it and hold it for about a minute - the device will reset.Give it a few minutes.Then, if it doesn't turn on, push the button for 2 seconds to turn it on.
HiHave done all that and it is slightly better but if that is how it is meant to be I think I might just stick with my iPhone which works just like turning the pages of a book and you don't get this jerky page change. However, thanks for your help!
I understand what you are saying - the phone works much faster. The phone simply has a much better CPU and a better operating system. The Kindle is supposed to have better visibility for reading, and a much better battery life, that's the tradeoff.I guess you are a fast reader, and this bothers you - I can certainly understand.Thanks,J.
