    Bought for my wife and she loves the light, thinness of the Oasis. The unit has great battery life and screen is perfect.

    This is my 1st Kindle and I take it everywhere. It has a long battery life, is lightweight, and since it's waterproof I don't worry about taking it outside. Wishing I had bought one of these a long time ago!

    Excellent battery. Keep airplane mode on to extent more. Great grip. Ultralight weight. I will add to it an auxiliary jack and warmer light. Also add the option to hear audible samples on the device.

    Overpriced for what it offers

    It was time to replace my old 3rd gen Kindle and thought this would be a nice upgrade. I've used a tablet to read as well, but I find e-ink devices easier to read for long periods and with much less glare. Pros - The device feels solid, and the thicker side with the battery makes it easier to hold one-handed. It's fairly responsive and downloads books quickly. Cons - The automatic light adjustment doesn't work well. It would often turn up all the way in a well-lit room or outside and would turn almost off in a dark room. More than once I had to reboot the device because it would lock up, especially if you try to queue up several book downloads at once. The page turn buttons would sometimes change several pages instead of just one (this appears to be a common complaint). The touch sensitivity extended almost 1cm into the button area by the screen, which often caused me to accidentally flip pages if my thumb moved too far over. The same extended area did not exist on the other side of the screen.

    I've to be honest I'm crazy about this little gadget. I love the fact that it connects to my Bluetooth headphones and I can fall asleep listening to a book or music. I can download books, audiobooks and music on my iPhone but everything I downloaded takes up space and causes my system to run slow so I figured it might be best to get a devise strictly for reading books. If you are a parent I would not advise sleeping with both headphones in your ear because you'll not be able to hear anything outside of those headphones. That device is expensive considering it's size. I don't think you can download any apps outside of reading nor have I tried. To my understanding this tablet is strictly for books. It does not get as many pop-ups as a regular Amazon tablet and the pop ups are normally book recommendations. It has a light sensor, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth you'll have to purchase your own headphones. The battery life on this device is amazing I charge this device want since I purchased it and I want to say I've had it for a month now. If you have a book nerd in the house this is a perfect gift idea. All the books have to be downloaded over Wi-Fi but once there on your device you can listen to them anywhere. This device only comes in one color.

    I bought this for my wife who happens to be a librarian (I know, ironic). Her library has something called Libby, where she can rent "digital" books for a period of time and return, just like physical books. She likes this because she doesn't need to lug around heavy books and track later for due dates and whatnot. It took some research to bite the bullet on this. For the price, it made me more hesitant because nobody could give me a straight answer whether or not Libby worked for the Oasis. I got a lot of mixed answers, but in the end I went ahead and bought it anyway. So, for anyone asking the same question: does Libby or Overdrive work for Oasis? Yes, it does. But, it doesn't install Apps. You would have to setup your libby account and make Amazon Kindle as your default reader. Then, as you rent books, it will send it to your Kindle account and you can then download it to the Oasis. According to my wife, she likes the comfort of holding the Oasis in one had, and if said hand gets tired, you can switch to the other hand, it reorients that page itself. It is light weight, and the battery seems to last a good while. She has not had to charge it since the first full charge, which is a week now. She has had many kindle products before, but this one is by far her favorite!
