      With the Oasis, Amazon has addressed nearly every complaint I have ever had with the Kindle line. * The front lighting is excellent and with 12 LEDs, very uniform * A 300dpi 7" display panel gives great text sharpness and allows for more words on every screen * Amazon recently added additional font sizes so I no longer have to choose between one size being too small and the next one up being too large * You can now add your own fonts if you want * 8GB minimum storage instead of 2-4GB in other models, means I can spend more time reading and less time worrying about managing the space on my device * Physical buttons are back * BT audio support for text-to-speech. I still know at least one Kindle Keyboard holdout specifically because it was the last model to have integrated speakers. While BT audio isn't quite as nice as an integrated solution, it's a reasonable compromise. * The processor used in the Oasis is designed specifically for use with e-ink displays so the number of times the software has to fully refresh the screen is reduced even more There are a couple minor issues I have with it, but nothing I can't live with. * Only one set of page turn buttons, so if you get tired of holding it with one hand, you have to turn the entire device around which can make it a little hard to find your place again. * Battery life is not up to par with older models with larger batteries, and unlike the previous Oasis model, you can't add a secondary battery via a cover. You'll probably be charging it around once a week instead of once every couple of weeks with older models. * Still no support for unencrypted ePubs -- they added support for user fonts, which everyone would have said was never going to happen until it did, so maybe one of these days... * Amazon seems to have added a "deep sleep" mode so you'll see a "waking up" message on the bottom if you haven't used it in a while, and it adds a couple extra seconds to being able to start reading. All in all, it's an excellent e-reader.

      This is an improved version of the Kindle Oasis. I owned the previous model with the Merlot charging cover. When Amazon announced the newer edition that was water resistant and larger screen, I jumped at the opportunity. I have owned almost all Kindle e-readers: the Paperwhite, Voyage, Fire, and the Oasis. This is my favorite because of how it is ergonomically better for my hand. It comes with a Graphite Aluminum body and does not require the cover to charge it. The battery is now encased in the Oasis itself and you can buy the cover separately. At the time I purchased it, there was an apparent recall on the covers and no one was selling it. The few that were available online were ridiculously overpriced. I found an Amazon Kiosk in a mall nearby and they had the cases. I purchased the Charcoal Fabric one because it was water-resistant (as is the Kindle itself). What is another great selling feature is the addition of connecting your Kindle to a Bluetooth headset and can now listen to your Audible books. Also the 7 inch screen size is a welcomed addition and now rivals the Paperwhite in reading screen. I felt that the previous model was on the smaller side and it would slip out of my hand easily. I recommend getting either the case or a Tempered glass screen protector. I've noticed a small problem with the cases is the magnet on the Kindle is not as strong as the previous model. The case has a nasty tendency of just disconnecting from the Kindle. This was also true on the previous model. Amazon needs to improve this with either stronger magnets or more of them. This is definitely the best e-book reader out there. It is on the costly side at $249.99.

      The new Oasis (Oasis 2?) is larger than the previous version: a seven inch display as compared to a six inch one. It feels slightly heavier than the first Oasis, but its weight is certainly not an issue for reading with it. The adaptable lighting works as advertised. Text is very crisp, as one would expect, and contrast is good. The aluminum back feels a little cold when I first take it, so I bought a cover and placed the Oasis in the cover so that it's more comfortable to hold. I bought the 8 gb version, which is plenty of storage for my purposes. I have not tried audiobooks on my Oasis yet. The only real con with this new Oasis is the battery life. The battery is actually smaller than the one in the Paperwhite, and so battery life is nowhere near as good as with the Paperwhite - and that's without using the audio function. That's not a big deal for me, as I rarely read outside (not in winter, anyway!) and so I'm usually near some electrical outlet. Still, once I adjusted to the larger device/display, I grew to like this Oasis a lot. I can readily recommend it - unless you need very good battery life. Then look elsewhere.

      Unusually expensive - ad-ridden experience

      I've always been a fan of the Kindle, ever since the first one came out over a decade again. I was excited about this Kindle due to the many premium features it showed - the all-metal finish, high-resolution ePaper display, backlighting, extended battery life, etc. I was significantly disappointed to see that Amazon pushes ads through the Kindle when you put it into sleep mode, and throughout the store options. Additionally, I was further frustrated by the fact that I learned there was a cellular version (available direct from Amazon) but not through the store. For such an expensive unit, to have ads with no option to disable them, seems unreasonable and like a rip-off. Additionally, the fact that this only supports wifi (not cellular or WhisperSync) makes it even more of a drawback and something I would not recommend to a friend - stick with the cheaper version. I also found annoying problems trying to get my Apple Airpod earphones to work with this device. Pairing took forever to finish or work (had to try three different times) and if the unit sits for too long, I found that I had to go through the entire pairing process again; they were not automatically connected and synced the moment I had both devices turned on.

      I was used to the Kindle 3rd gen(Kindle Keyboard) and when i first held the Oasis it felt very odd and uncomfortable and the metal back made it feel like it could slip and fall at any second. It does take time to get used to. The device is expensive for something that is not even a colored screen. However, my main reason was because it was a bigger screen and clearer ( besides there doesn't seem to be much upgrades between the Kindle Keyboard and the other ones) I find myself accidently touching the touchscreen more often than I would like ( but much less than when I 1st got it- a week or so ago). All in all it is a sleek and nice device, alittle pricey.

      Huge upgrade from Paperwhite

      This is a hige upgrade from my paperwhite. Although i enjoyed my paperwhite and it’s compact form factor, the 7inch screen is much more pleasant to read on. The PDF files are much more easier in the eyes and the weight of the oasis is noticeably lighter than my paperwhite. My only complaint about this kindle is the battery life. This device is almost perfect if only the battery life is longer. I fibd myself charging the device every 4 days and that’s on airplane mode with brightness set to ZERO. Bluetooth is off, auto brightness is off as well.

      This product is absolutely AMAZING. It provides a totally different reading experience, which as a result, leads to a better comprehension of the material. I use to read technical business books... I bet anything that it's even better to read novels on. By pressing a word, you can look up a words definition, thesaurus, or even Wikipedia! If your serious about absorbing what you read, or being able to carry one or two 500 page textbook in the palm of your hands easily, then this E-Reader is for you! The Side buttons make a big difference in the UX/UI of the product. -- I can't wait to finish the business books and start to read Novels on this thing!

      The size feels and looks like a real paperback book in the hands. Audibles works great. Took a few tries on the paring of devices. It may be just me but the lighting and contrast seems better on the first generation model. I also bought the new Nook Glowlight 3 and wish the kindle had that orange hue night reading tone like the new nook does. If you just read the new Nook is a better and cheaper option but if you read and enjoy audibles you will probably love this Kindle. I enjoy reading and listening at the same time and this is much easier on the eyes than a tablet.
