amazon Kindle oasis reviews
I was disappointed with the Kindle Oasis 2017 when reading the specs because it was much heavier than the original Kindle Oasis (2016), but perhaps that drawback can be offset by all other worthwhile changes: super strong battery, metal design, much larger display, and usability in the shower. At $250, the Oasis 2017 certainly isn’t for everyone, but if you’re an avid reader, you probably can’t ignore this product.
There are 2 feelings you will see when you touch the Oasis 2017, the first is that it is a lot heavier than the old version and the second is that it is a lot better. The same weight as the Kindle Voyage, a machine I used to love but grew to hate when Oasis 2016 came out. This weight is the biggest weakness of Oasis 2017 for me because it is clear that Oasis 2016 is like a monument to the world of e-readers, it is lighter than a phone, and holding it for a long time is not tiring.
Although it is much heavier, when in actual use, Oasis still makes me very happy, simply because the grip is made larger, and thicker, the hand will grip better without much loss of skin like Oasis 2016. In addition, the metal case and ultra-thin design make the Oasis sexier, smooth, and silky, much more sturdy than the old generation. Surely this case will scratch more easily than the 2016 machine, but it’s been a long time since you’ve seen a technological device made so smooth, so smooth and so inspiring.
Praise must also be criticized, the next point I don’t like in Oasis is the micro USB port. It’s too bad that a high-end device released in late 2017 doesn’t use USB C and still charges as slowly as usual (about 2 hours with a 5W charger).
Going back to Kindle 2017, the screen only increased by 1″ from 6″ to 7″, but the experience was very different, really different. The display area of the Kindle 2017 is much larger than the 2016 model, a trade-off that is completely worth it. Now, the display content of Oasis 2017 becomes more like a paper book, with less page-turning (which means less battery life) and also more friendly to our eyes.
Not only is the display area 30% larger, but the Kindle 2017 also feels more even in the backlight, a drawback from the Voyager to the original Oasis. The Oasis 2017’s backlight is softer, with fewer exposed parts in the dark.
Unfortunately, the resolution of Oasis 2017 is no different from 2016, although it is already very sharp, I still wish it was a bit higher.
The screen changes, but there’s something else that’s changed that Amazon rarely mentions: page-turning speed and response speed. As someone who uses Kindle Oasis 2016 every day, I feel that the page turning speed of Oasis 2017 is significantly faster, even manipulating the menus or typing on the keyboard is smoother.
Finally, the biggest change is the protective case of Oasis now no longer has a battery but just a normal cover with a built-in magnet. Similar to the old generation, you just need to touch this cover to the Oasis and they will automatically attract each other to connect. In return, with the absence of a bag, the Oasis’s internal battery is significantly increased, up to 6 weeks if you read for half an hour every day. The low usage time without a bag has made a lot of users uncomfortable, although, for me, its advantage is that you are not afraid of the battery then you have to throw the whole machine away.
There will be two types of protective caps for you to choose from, the $60 leather one and the $45 water-resistant plastic one. The skin version of Oasis 2017 gives me a feeling that it is not like 2016, but it may also be because it has not had time to breathe, to “break in”.
Overall, for me, Oasis 2017 is worth it. It is not clear whether this device will be as happy as Oasis 2016 after a while, but the initial impressions are really impressive. Once again Amazon makes me happy with their product, an asymmetrical product, breaking the old standard to come up with a smarter new one.
Kindle Oasis 2016 is the only technology device that I have used for more than 1 year in the last few years, really happy and almost can’t find anything to criticize. Hopefully, Oasis 2017 will do the same.
The Protective Cover not only acts as a screen cover but also as a base when placed on the table. If you open it, Oasis will open by itself, and close it will turn off by itself
If you pay attention, you will see that the buttons of the Oasis 2017 are lighter and quieter than the old version.
