7th generation kindle

Hi, I'm considering getting a new kindle. My current one is a 7th generation with a 6" glare free touchscreen, and I've had it around 2years.

The issues I'm having with it are-
Runs very slow when airplane mode off
Battery runs down completely in about 20 minutes when connected to wifi
Can't review books directly from it

Can anyone tell me if these issues are present in a new kindle?

I'm new and I see that this post is from December, but I'm answering anyway.
I have a Kindle Paperwhite and am thrilled that my battery lasts up to a month from one charge. I don't have any of the issues you are talking about either.
