Kindle Oasis (2019) review: unmatched waterproof reading from sunrise to sunset

New Amazon Kindle Oasis review: (What's the story) reading glory?

 

While we struggled to recommend the old version in light of the sturdy performance of the Paperwhite, we'd happily vouch for the new Kindle Oasis.

Sublime reading experience ; Larger display ; More even illumination ; Quality covers

It can be a little slippery ; Price ; Kindle Store layout getting a little old

While we struggled to recommend the old version in light of the sturdy performance of the Paperwhite, we'd happily vouch for the new Kindle Oasis. It's bigger, it's better, it's waterproof. It's the best Kindle yet.

Amazon Kindle Oasis (2019) review: The best ebook reader is £60 cheaper right now

 

Not much of an upgrade from the previous model, but the Oasis is still the best e-reader you can buy

Big, sharp E Ink screen ; Blue-light-reducing front light ; IPX8 waterproof

No memory expansion ; No 3.5mm headphone jack ; Not compatible with magnetic covers

This is, no two ways about it, a great new feature and one I’ve been wanting for a very long time; all the same, the new Kindle Oasis is not what you could call an essential upgrade.

LEAKED: Rumored 'Kindle Oasis' shows off crazy-cool new design

 

Leaked images show a wedge-like design with a big side bezel and built-in page turn buttons.

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

Amazon Kindle Oasis: The ultimate e-reader is now waterproof

 

For the Kindle's 10th anniversary, Amazon updates its high-end e-reader so you can take it in the bath. It has a bigger 7-inch screen and support for Audible, too.

The new Kindle Oasis maintains its slim design while adding a sturdier aluminum back and a larger 7-inch, high-resolution E Ink screen. It's fully waterproof (can be submerged) and can play your Audible audiobooks to Bluetooth headphones or speakers....

Expensive; no case included.

While not as lightweight as the original Kindle Oasis, the larger screen, more durable aluminum chassis and full waterproofing are important upgrades that put the new Oasis at the top of the e-reader class.

Amazon Kindle Oasis review: Best e-reader ever, but sky-high price hurts its appeal

 

A luxury e-reader if there ever was one, the new top-of-the-line Kindle weighs a mere 131 grams and includes a swanky battery cover that delivers months of battery life.

The Kindle Oasis is the lightest Kindle yet at 4.6 ounces and is 3.4 mm at its thinnest point. A slim leather battery case is included and adheres magnetically to the device, bumping battery life up to a 9 weeks without WiFi on. The integrated light...

It's pricey, isn't any zippier than the Voyage or Paperwhite, and isn't waterproof.

If you don't mind the high price, the Kindle Oasis is the best e-reader you can buy today.

Amazon Kindle Oasis (2017) Review: Best Kindle Ever, If You Pay Up

 

Amazon has perfected its best Kindle, giving the device an amazing amount of water resistance; a larger, more well-lit screen; and improved internal battery life to remove the need for cases. The e-reader's $249 starting price, though, is prohibitively...

Water-resistance ; Larger, well-lit display ; Audible books support ; Elegant, comfortable design

Expensive ; No power adapter ; Costs more to remove ads

The Kindle Oasis is the best Kindle ever, but wow is it pricey.
