Back to the books! 📚
I got introduced to the Kindle back in 2011. I even made a short review back then. I was so happy with it that it is the gadget I had for the longest time – nearly 10 years. It has followed me to work, trips, vacation, and parks. And I stand by every word I said back in 2011: Amazing display, good size and incredible battery.
Some time ago, somehow, I stopped reading novels regularly, giving preference to more technical books. And the Kindle was “replaced” by my computer screen as I needed to read the book while practicing some code. As I am slowly returning to novels, I decided to upgrade my reading device.
Enter the Kindle Oasis 3.
So many things have changed that within the last 10 years that I decided to go to the most expensive from the series, surely expecting it will last more 10 years with me.
It is impossible to compare a Kindle 4 with a Kindle Oasis. It’s like comparing, I don’t know, a bike and a car: Both will take you from point A to B but one will be faster and more comfortable. Meaning: One can still read a book with the Kindle 4 without any problems, but the experience with the Kindle Oasis is far better!
Now, I could do a full review telling how this and that is amazing, but I have it for less than a week and I didn’t even manage to finish a full book yet (reading World War Z, by the way). All I can do is to tell you that getting it was the best thing I could have done, but I found 2 problems:
- The battery drains much faster than my old Kindle. That's probably because it has more features, including the display brightness (my old one didn't have it).
- It feels cold and slippery as the back is made of aluminum. But any cover will solve the problem, as the one I have.
For more details on the device, I’m going to refer you to 2 videos from Mike’s Book Reviews, which helped me to decide (or convinced me) to buy my Oasis:
