My 2016 Review Of The New Kindle Oasis

2016 Review of new Kindle Oasis

Kindle Oasis Overview

The new Kindle Oasis from Amazon was released on 27th April 2016. It comes with a leather charging case which only comes in black if you are buying it with Wi-fi only and if you decide to go for the device with Wi-fi and 3G you have a choice of three colours of case which are Black, Merlot and Walnut.

Kindle Oasis Features

The features of the new Kindle Oasis are that it has a 6″ display screen with high-resolution (300 ppi), Wi-Fi and a built-in light. The new kindle is said to be as light as paper, lighter by 20% and thinner by 30% than any other kindle, it also tapers on one side to make it just 3.4 mm and without the cover it is only 131g in weight.

With the new tapered shape it makes it easier to hold as most of the device’s weight is in your hand and you are able to use the touchscreen or the physical buttons to turn the pages.

The battery life on the new kindle is the best ever and as there is a removable leather charging cover included, this boosts the battery life. There is also an adjustable light at the front that provides the ideal brightness either in the day or night.

Kindle Oasis Training and Tools

There appears to be no kind of training videos or any form of written training for the new Kindle. There must just be the usual manual that comes with the kindle. There are however lots of video reviews from people who have tested the Oasis and I have added one here.

I think that the only additional Tool it has is the Leather Charging cover which gives it extra battery time. I cannot find any others to help.

Who is Kindle Oasis for

The Kindle Oasis is ideally suitable for everyone, the only thing that could hold people back from buying it is the price. You can get two versions of the device which give you either just Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi plus 3G which allows you to download books from anywhere in the world.

Overall Opinion of The Kindle Oasis

New Kindle Oasis screenMy overall opinion of the Oasis while doing my research into it is that it is a great device for size and weight and the most of the features are very good although some are the same as other kindles. I like the fact that you get the charging case which gives extra battery but think you should be able to choose the case colour with just Wi-Fi rather than just getting the choice with the Wi-Fi plus 3G. I wouldn’t pay the prices that they are looking for though, I think this is really expensive for an e-reader.

I found a saying during my research which I did agree with, it was “The Kindle you want, but not the one you buy“.

Verdict: Legit

  1. The Oasis seems the most technologically advanced e- reader that has been produced to date. I just want to ask if the Oasis adds enough to the reading experience for the typical reader who already have a Paperwhite or Voyage to be worth the high price.

    1. When doing the research they were saying that it was much the same as the voyage and the paperwhite with the addition of the charging case. Someone spoke about the lighting on it not being as good as they have moved them from the side to the bottom. Hope this helps and thanks for the comment.
