Is the Kindle Oasis worth buying?

Another iteration of Amazon’s high-end reader

Pros

  • Big and sharp display
  • Page-turning buttons are great
  • New “warmth” display setting is nice on the eyes

Cons

  • With the Paperwhite being so good, the oasis is a hard sell
  • Lack of USB-C is annoying
  • Minimal updates from the previous model

  • Designed for one-handed use
  • It has water-resistance with an IPX8 rating
  • The 7-inch screen is big and crisp, allowing for more text on a page
  • Addition of a warm light makes reading at night more comfortable
  • 25 LED front light system offers even brightness levels
  • Audible integration and access to the Amazon Kindle store
  • Battery life is decent, lasting about two weeks with daily reading of two hours

We gave the Kindle Oasis a 4 out of 5 rating when we first reviewed it back in 2019. We were really impressed by the big, bright screen as well as the waterproofing that gave us extra peace of mind when reading by the pool.

We also loved the addition of a warm light, which ensured the Kindle was still comfortable to read at night. Access to both Audible and Kindle stores is provided, so you can choose from dozens of books and audio books.

During our testing, the Kindle Oasis lasted around 2 weeks, with daily 2-hour reading, until it required a recharge.
