My friend bought a Kindle touch 7th generation and it's power button is a little bit harder to press than my paperwhite. I can hear a click sound still, the device won't register the press. Though a slightly harder press does the job, I am worried that this doesn't mean that the power button might fail in the future (maybe after warranty). Is this normal for a Kindle touch? Please help
I have the current 7th generation basic Kindle as well as the original Kindle Touch and the switch on my basic Kindle requires minimal pressure but I almost never use it as I have the Kindle in a case that puts it in sleep mode when the cover is closed and gives a view with a "swipe to unlock kindle" instruction near the screen bottom to wake it up when the cover is opened. No need to use the switch at all normally. All Kindle readers post the original 4th generation Kindle Touch have had similar cases available and a magnetic switch in the reader to act similarly, most without the need to do the swipe. Installed in such a case the power switch is almost redundant till you need to do a hardware machine reset.
