Kindle Oasis review

 

The closest an e-reader will come to convincing skeptics

Premium design ; 16 level grayscale display ; Fast refresh rate ; Light ; Waterproof

Expensive ; No Audible support in India ; Metallic body is slippery

The Kindle Oasis is the closest the company has come to convincing skeptics. If you can afford it, this is truly the best e-reader you can buy. For the skeptics, the Kindle Oasis is the closest a machine will ever come to convincing you to give up...

Amazon Kindle Oasis review: First class reader, first class price

 

The Amazon Kindle has been fairly predictable over the past few years, walking a path from button-laden ebook reader at its 2007 launch , all the way through to the ultra-refined and ultra-simple Paperwhite and Voyage generation. The Kindle Oasis is...

Light weight design, fast page turns, great battery cover, lovely even lighting, premium feel

Price, no adaptive front light

The Kindle Oasis is easily the best Kindle, offering an experience that outshines its Kindle family. If it wasn't for the omission of an adaptive front light, we'd be able to say it's the most technically accomplished Kindle too. The design is strange,...

Amazon Kindle Oasis review: Wonderful e-reader, but at a ridiculous asking price - Tech2

 

We review Amazon's most expensive Kindle so far - the Kindle Oasis

While reviewing the Kindle Voyage last year, we had observed that the price point was high. The verdict remains the same with the Kindle Oasis. The Oasis, like the Voyage, is only meant for purists – and purists who have a very high bank balance. With...

Amazon Kindle Oasis review: the discerning choice for Kindle devotees

 

So here we are. A brand new Kindle. Lovely-looking isn't it? This is Kindle Oasis. It's an interesting product because, instead of refining its current range of devices, Amazon has chosen introduce it as an even more premium line, sitting above the...

Lovely and lightweight ; Unbelievably thin ; Charging case a nice touch

Expensive ; 3G version is even more ; Needs more case choices

There’s a lot to love about the Kindle Oasis, even if many of the core features are available on the significantly cheaper Kindle Paperwhite. But that’s missing the point – and if you’ve got this far we’d bet that won’t bother you. It’s unashamedly...

Kindle Oasis (2017)

 

Kindle Oasis (2017) review: review, price, features and release details for Amazon's sleekest Kindle e-reader ever with a waterproof body and Audible

The bigger screen is great ; Audible integration ; It’s finally waterproof

That price... ; Slightly uncomfortable to hold without a case ; Audio requires Bluetooth speakers or headphones

It’s expensive and a few of the design changes won’t suit all, but the bigger screen and waterproofing make it the perfect choice for die-hard e-reader fans.

Review: Kindle Oasis

 

This is the smoothest, fastest, smartest e-reader Amazon's ever made. And it's waterproof!

Every Kindle should be waterproof. Audiobook integration works perfectly. Everything that makes a Kindle great happens at its best here.

It's too big. And too expensive.

Amazon Kindle Oasis review: Expensive, but brilliant

 

Yes, it's expensive, but the Kindle Oasis is a brilliant bit of design and easily the best eReader yet

Beautiful design ; Excellent battery life ; Good display

Expensive

If you like nice things, use your eReader constantly and can happily stomach paying £270 for a device which, practically speaking, does the job of something half its price (the Paperwhite and its leather case will set you back £110 at present), then...

Amazon Kindle Oasis review

 

The Kindle Oasis is the best eReader yet but the price means it's not the best option for everyone.

There's no doubt that the Kindle Oasis is technically the best eReader you can get. Amazon has done a great job with the new design which is impressively small, light and ergonomic. The cover is a nice touch too and adds additional battery life to...

Amazon Kindle Oasis Review – An embarrassment of riches

 

Amazon is out of its mind, and yet for some reason I'm considering opening my wallet and spending hundreds of dollars on a Kindle Oasis . The company's new flagship ereader wows first with design, then with sticker-shock: closest yet in Amazon's quest...

Amazon Kindle Oasis review

 

My favorite way to test any e-reader is to see if I still like using it when my reading material isn't exactly thrilling. For the past week, I've been using Amazon's newest Kindle to get through a...

Thin! ; Weighs next to nothing without the cover ; Feels great reading with one hand

Expensive! ; No adaptive backlight ; Not waterproof
