Frequently Asked Questions
1. How is the screen on a Kindle different from a tablet?
Our Kindle devices are designed so you can read comfortably for hours. Kindle has a unique black and white glare-free display that reads like printed paper even in bright sunlight and enables weeks of battery life. With the display’s distinctive nature, slight shadows of previous text or images can sometimes remain visible on the screen. The display quickly refreshes occasionally to remove these shadows and ensure a high-quality optical experience.
2. Do I need to be a Kindle Unlimited member to read on a Kindle?
No. You do not need a Kindle Unlimited membership to read on a Kindle. All Kindle devices come with instant access to the world’s best eBook store. Kindle Stores worldwide offer millions of titles, including the latest best sellers.
3. How do I set up this Kindle?
You have the option to set up Kindle from the device by following its on-screen instructions, or with the Kindle app on your phone. When setting up using the phone, just open the Kindle app and enable Simple Setup under settings before you turn on your Kindle. If you opted in to linking Kindle to your Amazon account for simplified setup at purchase, it will already be registered to you.
