A:AnswerThe Oasis is strictly an E-Reader,the kindle fire is more of a tablet. You can also listen to audiobooks on oasis It also has access to the kindle store. You can touch the screen or use the buttons on the side to turn the pages however it doesn’t have the page curl function like the kindle fire does. With the fire it does have an apps store for games and such. Look wise I do like the feel of the oasis. It is smaller. My only 2 complains about the oasis is the page curl and the oasis is not in color. I just like being able the see the book covers in color. Hope that helped
A:AnswerHello Rt52, here are a few of the differences. The Oasis has 25 LEDs vs the Paperwhite having only 5, for better lighting and more adjustments to the brightness and warmth of the light. It also has a sensor to adjust the light automatically depending on the environment. The Oasis will also auto rotate the screen depending on which orientation you are holding it in. Finally, there are physical buttons on the device for page turning.
Hope that helps you out.
A:AnswerCan't answer that one...extended warranties are nothing but Insurance policies...I bet buying a quality product offsets the cost of the additional protection...like everything else,it pays if a problem airises....otherwise, a waste of money in my book...I 'll take my chances!!
A:AnswerBoth are 300 ppi devices so there's no increased sharpness of the text if they are set at the same physical size. Think of the extra inch as extra room to fit more text. It's like comparing a 600 sq ft room vs a 700 sq ft room. If you fill both rooms with the same exact sized furniture, there's room left in the 700 sq ft room to add more things.
Both the Paperwhite and the Oasis use the same screen technology to ease the strain on your eyes while reading. They both have the capability of making the font smaller or larger, and have the ability to be read in the light or the dark. The only thing for screen difference with the Oasis is it is a bit bigger, and it has an "amber" screen option for when reading in the dark, as well as the regular white colored light. Hope this info helps you make a decision. Have a great day.
