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.

Amazon Kindle Oasis (2017) review: total immersion

 

Drowning in books

Beautiful design ; Excellent E Ink display ; Finally water resistant

High price ; Can’t use Audible narration while reading ; On-screen taps cause inadvertent page turns

Still, there is value in leaving all those functions behind. The Oasis is an ideal device for canceling out, however briefly, the distractions of the wider world. But all that comes at a very high price. And while the Oasis takes reading seriously,...

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

 

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.
