Brilliant, Waterproof Reader

Bought this after being disappointed with the Kindle Voyage. This device is far superior in every way and has the added benefit of being waterproof so you can take it in the bath, pool, beach etc. The screen size is great. Slightly bigger than a normal reader but not hardback size and the rear has an excellent gripping material. A benefit over the Kindle is that you can shop around for books - you're not stuck with only one store. Battery life could be better but still lasts about 30+ hrs

Big screen, odd firmware.

I've been putting PDFs onto this thing like there's no tomorrow. It's been dealing quite well with them. A little slow to open some files and every now and then it just straight up crashes, forcing a reboot. The major upside is the screen size which is of course it's big selling point. I can read any of the pdfs I've got without having to zoom in and scroll around the page. It's good stuff.

How quickly can you move between pages with this device?

2 Answers

Same speed as you can turn a page on a book. There are no buttons it's all finger control, which you decide on setup.

what sizes of text are available

2 Answers

Very wide range of font size, from small to very very large, and good choice of fonts, for epub books. You can also change the weight of the font, and the line spacing and margins. The text display is extremely customisable.

Hi,

The size of the text will depend on the file type. If the file type of PDF you'll only have three size options. However, if it's a EPUB, JPUB, EPUB3 EPUB2 fole, you can resize the font to a very high range of options.

I hope this helps.
