    Thumbs Up – Amber Light.I’ve owned 4 different iterations of the Kindle e-reader, the last being an older generation Paperwhite. I’m still a huge fan of the Paperwhite, it’s a solid choice, especially at its price point, but decided it was time for a upgrade. Mostly I was taken in by the lure of a larger screen. I tend to hold onto my gadgets longer than the average bear and usually only trade them in when there is compelling reason. This time, for me, there were 3: 1. Larger screen. Since I typically read with a large font, the expanded screen real estate is a big deal. (way less annoying page turns). 2. Amber light. So much easier on the eyes and reminiscent of physical book pages. 3. The Oasis weighs less than my Paperwhite and is balanced better in my hand. I didn’t expect this one to be as significant as it has turned out to be. The Oasis is SO much easier for me to hold and manipulate, what with weight skewed to one side. I probably would have made the switch sooner if I had realized this earlier.So those are my reasons to upgrade. For me it was worth the extra money, considering I’ll be spreading that cost over many years given my history of hanging on to tech.Reasons I choose an e-reader over a tablet: Personally, I think e-readers are stupid expensive given how little they do – and yet here I am back purchasing another one, and a crazy expensive one at that. But as an avid reader, it is important to me to have my reading experience as pleasant as possible. The reason I choose an e-reader over reading on a phone or tablet is because of ease – it weighs considerably less and can be held up for longer periods. It can be read in direct sunlight. No backlit screen to give me headaches. The battery lasts longer.So that’s my experience. The Oasis might be worth the extra money for some, but if not, the Paperwhite is still a great option. For me, I would spring for the Oasis again.

    LTE is blocked for almost everything. Software is buggy and lacks basic feature.Summary, buy if: You read in well lit rooms, or don’t mind a headlamp/book light. Want a waterproof e-reader with a small screen and physical buttons. You’re tech savvy enough to remove DRM and Don’t use PDFs. Already have a nice tablet/phone for all the missing basic features. You don’t need TTS(text to speech). You don’t use the library, only limited support for OverDrive in the USA). You don’t travel and use Kindle accounts from other countries.Battery life is terrible unless you’re always in airplane mode and only read with the light off. You can read the fine print..”weeks of battery life” …oh, “30 minutes per day”…so uh, worse than the latest mini tablets with much better features, Unless you read in the the direct sunlight all day.Display only has good contrast in full sun or under a bright light. Must be noted though it’s fantastic under these conditions. So for beach readers it’s great. Auto brightness is super finicky and buggy. At one point I had to reset my Kindle because auto brightness would turn off lighting all together. But when I disabled auto brightness I couldn’t manually turn off the light even when set to off. If you read a lot late at night or in a room with bad lighting… Don’t buy this.Can’t download many books in LTE, says they are “too large.” Oddly enough I never get this message ever for Amazon unlimited books….so guess they’re uh, not being honest.Apparently they’ve completely disabled mp3 support. Could swear in older Kindles you could manually load MP3s and at least play them. So Bluetooth is worthless. Many audio features that work on a tablet don’t work on a Kindle.Doesn’t support the majority of ebook formats.The version that has ads disabled still has a non removable add stuck on the main menu.. and oh, btw… You can’t even use what they advertise all the time on LTE… Bah. You can disable the ads in the bottom of the home screen and their spy tracking, but the ad free version should default to that.Web browser is still experimental after 10+ years? And it has terrible ghosting. You literally have to rotate the display back and forth to “full refresh” the page. There is no option to do that besides for reading books.Basic features like a timer or eye rest reminders do not exist at all.UI design is straight out of the 90’s. Three layers deep just to change font size. Actions have different behavior on different screens, but the UI gives no indication that behavior will be different.Limited accessibility options. Nonhigh contrast mose. It does have text to speech, but it only works in screen reader mode and is a pain to use.Only supports one ebook library system, and of course no apps can be installed to access others. Also had trouble with borrowed foreign language books showing up as English in the Kindle. Audiobooks from any library system doesn’t work. While it does support PDF, the results are terrible.And the most annoying of all. Kindle store is walled off by region. So you can’t use Kindle unlimited from the US while reading e-books bought from other regions. Not without resetting/re-registering the device which requires removing all content.

    This newest Oasis is (surprisingly) a game changer for me and worth the upgrade. Here’s why.Simply put – the new amber light setting.I read a lot of books and have owned almost every past Kindle model; I usually upgrade whenever there is a new one offered.. The Kindle Oasis has by far been my favorite for a variety of reasons (page-turns, great display screen) and I was very happy with the one I had. Saying that, I wondered if this newest Kindle Oasis would be worth the hefty price for the upgrade. For me the answer is yes.The biggest new feature and game-changer for me is the new warm-light display option which adds amber to the background; so much easier on my eyes. If this doesn’t seem like a big deal, it really is.I do a lot of reading and especially at night but I am also prone to headaches so I cannot read from a back-lit device like a cell phone or tablet. I am usually fine with most eReaders and owned and really liked the previous Oasis but was eager to give this new warm-light feature a try and it’s FANTASTIC. You can adjust the amber tint and it’s made a world of difference for me and my reading experience and I can now read longer and my eyes don’t tire out so much.As far as the other improvements or changes with this newest Oasis versus the old one, there is now as a timer for the light (don’t use that) and it has brighter displays and quicker page-turns; those are all great and make this new one even better. But other than that, there is not much of a difference between this and the previous Oasis.If you don’t care about these features, then I don’t know if this upgrade will be worth the extra money for you. For me it absolutely was because of the warm light option. The clearer displays and page-turns are just the cherries on top.
