Really good, better than I expected in many ways.
The 7’’ screen is way bigger than the 1st gen 6’’, a greater change than it may sound. Still pretty light-weight, the metal feels good, just don’t forget to get a case if you live in areas that can get cold.
Warmness control is not seemingly fancy but yep, it’s amazing. Just think about your iPhone’s True Tone display (should you ever used one), then you understand how this feature counts.
The only things I’m not satisfied with are the battery life and the connectivity. Somehow, I feel it can’t last as long as my 1st Gen Oasis, even if the old buddy is now over 24 months. Not saying is bad, but it’s still a retreat. Unless you read all day long, however, I guess up to 2 charges a week is good for 95% of us. And, well, come on Amazon!!! It’s 9102 already (2019 actually :) ), a microusb port is just old-fashioned. You can do that don’t ya? I would pay like $15 more for that. Hopefully you can do that on next gen, and I really think you should.
Overall, really good in every aspect, as long as you get some spare money and are willing to invest in reading, this is a must-have. ( Mine is 32G Graphite WiFi. $279 is not cheap, but is worth only if you need. Like the brand-new AirPods Pro, it’s built primarily for the Pro users rather than being a budget choice. Have a think about your need before the decision.)
The Oasis is the top of the line in the Kindle line. It boasts such features adjusting font size, tabs feature to scroll or using buttons, switching the oasis to right to left hand friendly, adjusting background to soft yellow (newspaper version) so as to eliminate total eye strain, and many other more reader friendly devises to apply other Kindle Oasis activiities. The Oasis, dollar for dollar is the best value around for us regular readers. I highly recommend purchasing a cover in order to protect your investment.
I have been reading on iPads for a long time and I love the True Tone and warm light settings that are on my iPad Pro now for reading, so when I saw the new oasis was going to have this feature, I knew I wanted it but it was hard for me to spend the money for this when I had my $1000.00 iPad. I actually preordered and canceled the new oasis several times (I was afraid Best Buy was going to ban me...lol) before finally settling on purchasing it.
Well, let me tell you, I am so glad I did! This new oasis screen is awesome and I feel like I am reading a physical book. There is a huge difference between the paperwhite, which I purchased at amazon on prime day but returned it, and this new oasis in terms of lighting. The warm light setting really is much easier on the eyes for evening/nighttime reading. I am even leaving it on a little through the day.
I love ALL the features the oasis offers. It truly does offer a much better reading experience. I am a very avid reader, so I feel like, for me, the cost of this device was well worth it!
I have small hands and it is a little more awkward for me to hold, but I am making it work!
The light shines evenly across the screen, there is no shadowing, and battery life seems to be good so far.
For me, having both the iPad Pro and oasis is beneficial. Any books that has links or color pages is better on the iPad. For example, I love reading my study Bible on my iPad because of the links and the illustrations, so for me, having both devices is well worth the money spent.
I know a lot of people are unhappy because it wasn’t a huge upgrade from the oasis 2, but I think it is a major upgrade because the screen is so amazing with the new lighting.
I am very happy with my purchase!

I love this eReader. The quality is extremely premium and feels exceptionally comfortable when held in the hand. It feels so nice that I ended up getting a sleeve to protect it in instead of a cover that attaches to it. I find the format just right and have been able to read PDF manuals I own as well as comics. To this point, I'm glad I went with the 32 gig version to store my additional content. To top off the cake, it is so light and portable, it never leaves my side.
As an owner of both a Paperwhite and an Oasis, I can say that I love both. The slightly bigger screen, premium metal feel, and color temperature settings may not justify the extra cost to many, but as an avid reader, I knew I’d get many many hours of use out of it.
I chose the Oasis for the form because I never liked holding a tablet or reader with a narrower bezel. My only beef with the design is that it is a little slippery (without using a sleeve or cover), and because the power button on the top is directly opposite the power jack on the bottom sometimes I inadvertently turn it off or on when plugging in the power cord. You'll know what I mean if you buy this.
The e-ink display is fantastic, but the auto-brightness shows a distinct effect on the display in lower light that appears as a slow flicker. It eventually settles down, or maybe my eyes adjust to it - don't know. I use the warm setting exclusively because it looks closest to paperback pages, and couples with the anti glare screen it's easiest on my eyes.
The battery lasts quite a while. The first 5-10% seems to go quickly but it takes forever to get down to even 75% - like a week at least.
There is very little setup to do when you get it and adding books from an external source (like a computer) is simple. Just attach it using the USB cable and the Kindle is seen as a storage drive where you can drag and drop your files into the appropriate folder. Not all popular formats are compatible.
I'll get another if I lose this one!

Amazon Kindle Oasis (2019)
The 2019 edition of the slim, waterproof Amazon Kindle Oasis adds a warmth-adjustable backlight for less eye strain, thought most people will be just fine spending nearly half the price on the Paperwhite.Full Review

Amazon barely tried with its 2019 Kindle Oasis e-reader
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: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.
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:AnswerHello Jeannie, you will need wifi to download your books that you want to read. Once they are downloaded onto the Kindle, you will no longer need to be connected to wifi. Anytime you want to download a new book or update the software you will need to connect to wifi.
Hope that helps, have a great day!
