I heard that color version of it spends much more battery charge, that black-white version. But how much faster?

Is it normal for Kindle to have 'dead pixel'?

Just noticed a black dot on my Paperwhite 4 today

It's definitely not normal, but it happens. You either try to have it replaced (contact Amazon) or just live with it if it's not too noticeable.

Thanks. If I bought from third party seller (on Carousell), am I able to return to Amazon? Or no choice already...

Yes, but then you'll need a separate China Amazon Account.

Sorry, no idea about 3rd party purchases. Try chatting with Amazon in the website.

Should be safe for Kindle books. I always buy kindle books under my local address. I get a lot of free books from Amazon.

I have tried but I couldn't find a way. Calibre cannot convert epubs from NLB to Kindle-friendly format. I haven't tried those paid programs that claim to remove DRM from epubs.
