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.

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

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 review

 

The first all-metal and waterproof Amazon Kindle

Great reading experience ; Audiobook functionality ; Waterproof and metal design is lovely

Expensive ; No headphone jack ; No speakers

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

Amazon Kindle Oasis 2017 Review: Finally, a waterproof Kindle

 

The latest Kindle model is a refreshed Oasis, which delivers enough updated specs and features to warrant an upgrade for existing owners. From the water...

Crisp, auto-adjusting screen ; Audible support ; Loads of storage ; Sleek design

Still expensive ; No built-in speaker

The Kindle Oasis is still a very pricey eReader at over £200 for the base model. However, Amazon has made enough improvements here to make it easier to recommend, compared with the original device..
