Amazon Kindle Oasis (2017) review

 

The first all-metal and waterproof Amazon Kindle

Great reading experience ; Audiobooks are useful ; 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: Amazon’s bigger, waterproof e-reader is simply the best

 

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...

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 (2017) review

 

When Amazon released its original Kindle Oasis e-reader in 2016, I was pretty impressed. It was really thin and lightweight and featured a top-of-the-line E Ink screen. It also came with a slick, removable leather cover that had a built-in battery. The...

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 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 resistant design work to the improved display, the…

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.

Amazon Kindle Oasis (2017) review: The bigger, better e-reader is now available in "champagne gold"

 

It's bigger, tougher and cheaper than before – and well worth the money if you read a lot

In fact, despite the caveats surrounding the Audible integration, Amazon’s latest luxury e-reader is pretty much a shoe-in for an award with improved hardware, software and design over the previous Kindle Oasis. It's now pretty much the perfect...

The Amazon Kindle Oasis (2017) Review: A Premium Take On The E-Reader

 

A couple of months ago, Amazon released an all-new Kindle Oasis, and I've been using it since mid-November. The E-Reader market is a niche inside of a niche, but there's little doubt that Amazon has been at the forefront of E-Readers since the Kindle...

Amazon Kindle Oasis 2017 review: The ultimate e-reader adds audiobooks and a waterproof case

 

The All-New Kindle Oasis is bigger than the original, waterproof, and beautiful to read.

Waterproof ; Excellent build quality ; Comfortable for one-handed reading over long periods ; No more external battery cover to fiddle with ; Large, bright display ; Can play audiobooks downloaded from Audible

Cannot play audio from any source other than Audible ; Exposure to larger amounts of liquid causes false screen taps to be registered ; Expensive

The Kindle Oasis (2017) represents a long-awaited upgrade to Amazon’s e-reader product line. Waterproofing and Audible content support lift it above the competition.

2017 Amazon Kindle Oasis review: Better than paper and waterproof too

 

Apple's new iPhone X honors the 10th anniversary of the iPhone and is the most expensive and innovative iPhone yet. Along the same line, the 2017 Kindle Oasis marks the 10th anniversary of the original Kindle ereader, also being the most expensive and...

Large, clear display with outstanding lighting ; IPx8 water resistance ; Audible support ; Comfortable design

Expensive ; Can't listen to an Audible book and browse or read at the same time ; No 3.5mm headset jack
