Kindle Oasis 2 (2017) hands-on

Kindle Oasis

 

The Kindle Oasis is the most luxurious, high-end e-reader ever made by Amazon. It's ridiculously thin, weighs very little and is a pleasure to use.

Beautiful, fantastically well built and a pleasure to use. But the high-price means it's only for the most diehard of Kindle fans.

Amazon Kindle Oasis (2017) review

 

Waterproof and Bluetooth, ain't that the truth

Waterproof - finally ; Excellent battery life ; Bluetooth great for audiobooks ; The biggest, best ebook store

Locked to Amazon’s marketplace

It’s hands down the best Kindle ever, which pretty much makes the new Oasis the best eReader ever as well

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

 

A jaw-droppingly expensive e-reader that oozes class

Fabulous lightweight design ; Pristine screen ; Easy-to-use software

Really, really expensive ; No adaptive lighting

If you’ve got the Cash Money, this e-reader is the best you can buy. We can’t knock its hustle.

Amazon Kindle Oasis (2017) review

 

When Amazon launched the first Kindle it felt revolutionary, and helped to propel the nascent ereader to the widespread reading tool it is now.  But nowadays, innovating in the ereader market is a difficult task, and something Amazon has struggled...

Great reading experience Audiobook functionality Waterproof and metal design is lovely

Expensive No headphone jack No speakers

The 2017 version of the Amazon Kindle Oasis remains expensive, but it still offers one of best ereader experiences money can buy with an easy-to-use system, beautiful design and phenomenal reading experience.

Amazon Kindle Oasis (2017) review: No longer the very best (but still superb)

 

Amazon's premium e-reader is bigger and tougher than ever and has Audible audiobook playback, too

Large, high-resolution E Ink screen ; Waterproof ; Looks gorgeous

No microSD expansion ; Pricey compared with regular Paperwhite

Now, don't get me wrong; £229 is still a lot of money to pay for an e-reader when the Kindle Paperwhite does much the same job for less than half as much. But if you spend a lot of time reading and a significant proportion of your day on the road...
