    Took a while deciding between this oasis and the paper white - went with this because of the larger screen. Like it a lot - only issue is with the automatic background light - seems always not bright enough

    I really love my Kindle Oasis. The best feature for me is the larger screen allowing for more words per screen and less page turning.

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

    It's everything you could want with a e-reader. Great screen, easy to use and the amazon eco system.

    Wonderful product! I was very pleased with the lighting and quality of the screen. I have not tested out the waterproof feature but I am pleased with everything else.

    I purchased this as a gift for my wife before a trip. SHE LOVES IT! Perfect size to fit in her bag and easy to read due to the large screen size compared to previous models.

    This reader is great and offers so many configuration settings to personalize. It is so visually clear. I am glad I got this one.

    Bought specifically because of the waterproof factor. It works well for the most part, except page turning by swiping the screen only properly works 50-75% of the time. Thank goodness it has page turning buttons...

    I had the Paper White for many years. So handy always having a small library especially when I am staying with friends or on a cruise. When I lost it I decided to up grade to the Oasis so that I can have a black screen with white letters. I love it especially when reading at night, much less light than the traditional screen

    I had a Kindle Paperwhite that died after getting rained on when I was in vacation last November. So for my birthday this year, I asked for the Oasis. I was a little hesitant because it cost so much more, but I absolutely love it. I like the larger display, the page turn buttons (you can still swipe to advance pages I f you like that), and the feel of the Oasis in my hand. It has a little ledge to grab onto and you can use either hand. AND, it's water resistant so I don't need to worry if I get caught in the rain again!

    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.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
