The Indian Express

Bigger screen, and is more durable than its predecessor

from The Indian Express

Well, this is clearly the most premium Kindle you can buy. It is also thinnest, lightest, brightest and most advanced Kindle ever. But all that comes at a price and I am not convinced the premium really makes sense when the more affordable Kindles do such a good job.

The Rolls-Royce of e-readers

from The Guardian

The Kindle Oasis provides the best ebook reading experience money can buy. It’s just not a huge upgrade over the excellent model from last year.

TrustedReviews

Remains a pricey product that’s likely to attract only the most obsessive of Kindle fans

from TrustedReviews

It’s expensive and a few of the design changes won’t suit all, but the bigger screen and waterproofing make it the perfect choice for die-hard e-reader fans.

Better than paper and waterproof too

from ZDNet

The new Kindle Oasis is not a pocketable device, but it works very well in one hand and lets me easily read on the train and airplane. I've used it daily on my Sounder commute, while flying across the country, and while taking a relaxing bath after a long workout.

Tweaked design and a lower price

from Tech Advisor

The new Kindle Oasis is impressive with a larger screen, added light sensor, waterproofing and Bluetooth for listening to audiobooks with wireless headphones. There's really nothing to complain about in terms of the actual device, however, it's still pretty expensive and for most people one of the cheaper Kindles will suffice.

A waterproof luxury e-reader

from finder.com.au

The updated Kindle Oasis is an excellent e-reader if you crave a distraction-free gadget, but it's also a luxury indulgence given how easy it is to get Kindle apps elsewhere.

Everything that makes a Kindle great happens at its best here

from Wired

This is the smoothest, fastest, smartest e-book reader Amazon’s ever made. For most people, it’s probably not worth the cost—especially when Amazon already makes a killer reader, the Paperwhite, for about half the price.

Whenever Amazon releases a new e-reader it often has features not found in any other device. This was designed to encourage people to upgrade if you want the latest and greatest and the new Oasis is no exception. The second gen Oasis has the quickest page turn speed out of any Kindle I have ever reviewed. There is hardly any full page refresh issues when you are reading at a normal pace.

SlashGear

Wipes out most of its predecessor’s rough edges in a frustratingly tempting package

from SlashGear

All the same, there’s far more to the new Kindle Oasis than just being read to. The long-anticipated waterproofing, the great new screen – largest on any Kindle available today – and the speedy performance make for an ereader that rightly sits at the top of Amazon’s tree.
