Kindle dx graphite: Going to prev page is much slower than going to next page.

Does any kindle dx graphite user feel that going to prev page is much slower than going to next page. In my kindle dx graphite, going back to the prev page takes one second slower than going to the next page.

I don't think it's a bug, it's just the way it works.

Going forward is easy as the DXG knows exactly which word to start the next page on.
Going backwards then DXG has to work out which word to start the page so that no words are missed or repeated at the bottom of the page.

This is true in all implementations of the Mobipocket Reader. The software caches the next page while you're reading the current one, to speed up page turning, but this isn't done when you go back a page.

Don't worry about it - it's entirely normal.
