Fast and comfortable, the Kindle Oasis marks a beautiful evolution of the e-book. This particular e-reader is packed with so many features that no other company could think of adding the same number of features at the price range in which Kindle Oasis is available. But, it is not just the existing feature of the device, but the constant updating of the device by the company that makes Kindle Oasis so popular among the users.
More and more popular with reading enthusiasts, digital readers are gaining more benefits from touch-sensitive tablets: a screen that is less tiring for the eyes, a record autonomy (several days or even weeks) and, above all, the absence of notifications. and unannounced alerts. However, among a large number of available models, some of them have a relative fragility, a display that is too small or a distressing slowness. Amazon’s new Kindle Oasis brings relevant solutions to these problems.
First, it is waterproof and continues to work after a forced swim in more than two meters of water for 60 minutes. Nothing to fear so if you read on the beach, by the pool or in the bath. Then, its e-ink screen occupies a surface of 7 inches, that is to say, it displays more text on a page than the small tablets of 5 or 6 inches. In addition, this screen offers reading comfort all the more appreciable that it is very bright and very accurate.
The settings also offer a greater choice of fonts and font size, and even the possibility of presenting the text aligned to the left and not only justified. As a bonus, a brightness sensor automatically adjusts the screen illumination. Never before there was such a wide range of options for fonts that you can find in the new version of Kindle Oasis. Moreover, certain adjustments have been made to the screen to display the content of the eBook in a much better way.
A perfect handheld device for avid readers
Rather aesthetically successful, the reading light is also distinguished by its lightness (194 g) and its fineness (only 3.4 mm on the slice the thinnest and 8.3 mm on the other edge). All the electronics are indeed deported on one side, which, incidentally, facilitates the grip of the case. As on the previous models in the range, it is possible to “turn the page” using the side buttons or by sliding your finger on the screen.
Notable improvement: The Kindle Oasis is fast and the flash effect that usually occurs when a new page is displayed has almost disappeared. We regret, however, that it is impossible to increase the memory and import ebooks by microSD card (it will be necessary to be satisfied with the original capacity, 8 or 32 GB), and that the cellular version is limited to one 3G link, without 4G connectivity. The device is already available and is being sold between $290 and $400 depending on the version.
