Unlike any Kindle you've ever held
Reimagined to be our thinnest and lightest Kindle ever

Designed to feel as light as paper, Kindle Oasis is over 20% lighter and 30% thinner on average than any other Kindle. The handgrip tapers to an ultra-thin 3.4 mm display so you can read comfortably for hours.

Kindle Oasis combines our strongest cover glass and a featherweight frame infused with metal using structural electroplating, ensuring it is lightweight while also resilient enough to take it with you everywhere you go.

Perfectly balanced ergonomic design

A tapered ergonomic handgrip shifts the centre of gravity to your palm, to rest in your hand like the spine of a book. Perfectly balanced for one-handed reading, Kindle Oasis lets you lose yourself in your story.

Comfortably turn the page with either the touch display or dedicated page turn buttons located on the front of the handgrip. Whether you choose to read with your left or right hand, Kindle Oasis automatically rotates the page orientation to match.

Highest-resolution Kindle with enhanced lighting

Kindle Oasis features a high-resolution 300 ppi display for crisp text, which reads like the printed page, on the same 6” display size as Kindle Voyage. A redesigned built-in light features 60% more LEDs than any other Kindle, increasing the consistency and range of screen brightness for improved reading in all types of lighting. Kindle Oasis guides light towards the surface of the display with its built-in front light—unlike back-lit tablets that shine in your eyes—so you can read comfortably for hours without eye strain.

Dual-battery charging system provides the longest battery life of any Kindle

Charge the device and cover simultaneously while joined together and plugged in. When on the go, the cover will recharge the device automatically, giving you months of combined battery life. Plus, a new hibernation mode minimises power consumption when your Kindle is inactive, extending battery life to its fullest capacity.

Premium leather cover

The removable charging cover is made of high-quality leather and comes in your choice of black, merlot or walnut. The cover opens like a book and fits closely around the bezel, waking Kindle Oasis when opened and putting it to sleep when closed. Twelve magnets form a secure and solid attachment between device and cover, while still easy to detach when the lightest possible weight is desired.

Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi + free 3G


A Kindle with Wi-Fi is a great choice if you already have a high-speed Internet connection and wireless router set up in your home. If you do not have Wi-Fi set up at home, a 3G model may be a better option—3G connectivity lets you download books anytime, anywhere.

Wi-Fi + free 3G

A model with Wi-Fi + free 3G is the easiest option because there is no wireless setup—you are ready to shop, purchase and read right out of the box. Built-in free 3G connectivity uses the same wireless signals that mobile phones use, but there are no monthly fees or commitments—Amazon pays for 3G wireless connectivity. The added convenience of 3G lets you download books anytime, anywhere, without having to find a Wi-Fi hotspot connection. Your Kindle may use wireless connectivity to make other services available, such as wireless delivery of personal documents, which may require an additional charge. For more information, see Wireless Terms and Conditions

With wireless coverage in over 100 countries and territories, 3G lets you download books anytime, anywhere, whether you're relaxing on a beach, halfway through a hike or waiting on the tarmac. Check 3G coverage area

Connectivity Technology: Wi-Fi OnlyColour: Black Verified Purchase
Mine came yesterday. Initially was very happy with the purchase as it seemed like a huge upgrade from PW1. It's much smaller and lighter, and a lot easier to hold in one hand. However the screen quality is, well, not what you might expect from a price tag of £270. The screen is uneven on one side where the LEDs are. It looks like some of the LEDs are brighter than other and cast shadows and screen bleeding, this especially visible when you try to use the reader in a dark room with brightening settings somewhere in the middle. (Photos attached).

Other than that the reader is very light, responsive and super comfortable to hold. I'm going to try for a couple of days more and then decide whether to keep it or return.
Update 02/05/2016

Amazon has sent me a replacement, the screen of the second oasis is miles better. Photo of both devices side by side attached.

I rarely write reviews as I get fed up with constantly being asked to provide feedback for everything I buy, but I feel compelled to rate the kindle Oasis. This is my 5th Kindle and I expected to like it a bit more than the Voyager as I have liked each new one better than the previous model. But the Oasis is, I believe, a quantum leap in improvement. It is a joy to use. Elegant and simple - it just works. I love how light it is, I love how it fits easily into the charging cover. I can't see how Amazon can now improve on this - it is the ultimate e-reader. Now if only the cover came in a prettier colour... Seriously, anyone thinking of buying this who is hesitating, I'd say go ahead. You won't be disappointed.

Nice bit of kit to use. My wife loves it as it is so light and easy to handle. My big grudge is that it does not live up to the hype of long battery life. This has to be charged more often than her previous paper white. The hype tells us the power should last months, but it requires charging at least weekly with the same usage as her previous kindle which lasted twice as long as this new oasis.

Connectivity Technology: Wi-Fi OnlyColour: Black Verified Purchase
As an avid reader I persuaded my husband to purchase one of the Kindle Oasis last year, on average I consume 4 books per week. My original Paperwhite battery would last 1-2 weeks on a single charge, this diminished over time, which is why I bought into the hype of the Oasis lasting a month on a single charge - as the old adage says "if it sounds too good to be true, is usual is". I am currently on my 3rd reader and soon to be my 3rd case in less than 9 months, trying to resolve the battery issue; for this amount of money the least I would expect is for the reader to fulfil the specs that are prominently displayed on the Amazon page

On a plus side most of Amazon after sales support has been good, a few of their operators really need to have more training on the technical specifications of these units and when replacement are sent they REALLY should have the latest OS installed not an OS that was installed June 2016!!! If, like me you have no laptop or computer and work purely from tablets you are in trouble, as apparently this is not normal and you cannot do the required updates (3 weeks of my life I will never get back getting that issue resolved)

Until the battery life lives up to the promised duration I would avoid these readers, save your money and buy the Paperwhite

I have waited a few weeks before posting this review in order to use the Oasis and form an opinion based on that.
First:this version of Kindle looks, and feels, subtly more high quality. The almost square shape seems as if the screen sould be smaller than the Voyage /Paperwhite , but this is not the case. The bezel has been narrowed, top and bottom, by moving a good portion of the power pack to the detachable battery/cover.
The result is an almost postcard size, with a very noticeable reduction in weight when used with the cover removed-which I now do automatically-when using the device. Removal/attachment is a simple and easy one-click operation.
The reading experience is what we have come to expect from generation Kindle, pretty flawless really.
I now prefer the return of the two forward/return buttons on the bezel edge:these can be set to individual preference and will automatically adjust position for right or left-handed readers.
The light weight makes this so comfortable to use.

Second:the elephant in the room - Price! This is expensive when the same reading experience can be had on the Voyage /Paperwhite. But, IMHO, the quality feel, the really compact size, the hugely extended power life and the 'je ne sais quoi' factor, coupled with the really comfortable feel in the hand, makes this the one to go for if your resources can stretch to it.

Verdict:another advanced winner from Amazon.

P. S. I am a private buyer, not a product tester.
PPS. This will reduce the aftermarket sales of cheap 'Kindle' covers!!

Connectivity Technology: Wi-Fi OnlyColour: Walnut Verified Purchase
First-off I have to say I didn't buy from Amazon, even though I was on a waiting list, because as someone on a review very kindly mentioned they bought theirs from John Lewis. Unfortunately after I whizzed over to their website it was out of stock, but I left my email not expecting any reply until mid/end of June, when Amazon where indicating delivery, but they obviously got some in a lot quicker than Amazon and so cancelled my Amazon order and bought it there instead.

I have had nearly all the Kindles - the Keyboard, the Paperwhite, the Voyage and now the Oasis. Obviously each one was perfect in its own right, when I first bought them, but they have been tweaked over the years and I think this one is the best so far in my opinion. The size is what immediately grabbed my attention, I know there isn't a massive deal of difference but it just feels so much smaller, probably because it is squarer and also so incredibly light. And that is probably the best part of it, the lightness. You could (and I do!) read for hours without having wrist-ache. I always kind of propped the bottom of my Voyage on my little finger whilst holding it as it was heavier and after a while reading it starting slipping out of my hand. The Oasis is so easy to switch from hand to hand with the new automatic page rotation and extremely comfortable to hold without feeling like you might drop it when you get tired. The slightly rubberised back which houses the battery is perfect for gripping it and feeling secure.

Cover-wise I have the walnut leather cover and again I love it! It is suede and so does mark slightly, but that is all part of its appeal and, as I read in a review somewhere and totally agree with, you just want to keep stroking it, it's so soft!
