Kindle Oasis ( non waterproof). So light Love it
I don’t think they sell the non waterproof anymore.
@Namie, they have it in black for $359
I had looked for it thinking w the new one coming out it would be cheaper and didn’t find it. ?
Interesting. I dont know why I couldn’t find it. But the waterproof is $279 so if I were upgraded today, I’d buy the waterproof one. I would’ve expected it to be cheaper.
Paperwhite! The price is right and it is very lightweight, no glare screen and can read at night since the screen is lighted!
I have to admit I love my Oasis, the waterproof model. But, I spend a lot of time on the road, usually on a motorcycle and when I’m not on the bike, I’m around a clumsy 5 year old and some very active furbabies. I need something light and portable that can withstand sudden rainstorms or a spilled drink, with a backlight and great battery life. Not to mention, the screen is awesome and being able to run it under a tap to clean…. awesome ?
Paperwhite. Love to read in the dark! Also if power goes out during a storm I can read a book now LOL
Paperwhite. But I’d love to be able to buy an Oasis (32 Gb) to store all my ebooks.
Paperwhite. Not every electronic device has to do all the things. There’s no distractions, bells/whistles, and I can read in the sun and at night.
Paperwhite, lightweight, adjustable backlight
Fire…has everything I need
I just upgraded to Paperwhite. I love it. Love that it’s backlit.
I like my Kindle HD Fire, 32gb. I can read in the dark, read email and Facebook, search the internet, etc. The price is right too.
I have a fire and a paperwhite. only bad thing about fire hard to see screen if you want to see outside. you need a screen or something. I mainly use my paperwhite to read books and I love it. perfect size, many great features including built in light
Paperwhite…read outside, in bed at night, had the fire too easy to bounce on into emails, games, facebook. Paperwhite is for reading:)
I LOVE my paperwhite!!!! My husband bought it for me two years ago (I think he was trying to get me to stop hoarding physical books ?) and I didn’t think I was going to like it but now it’s my favorite thing… it’s light and thin and there is no glare if you want to take it outside on a sunny day and it’s not too expensive
Paperwhite. No glare in sun. Worth every penny!
Only had paperwhite but it’s great.
Paperwhite. No glare when reading outside and ability to read in the dark. (Marriage saver!)
Is there any difference in paperwhite and oasis other than the oasis is waterproof?
I like reading on my paperwhite best, I do everything else in my Fire.
I have the 6” fire. I like it because it fits in my purse.
I’m not sure it counts, but I use the Kindle App on my iPad and iPhone. I’ll be following this, though, in case I ever decide to get a dedicated e-reader.
Voyage for over 3 years. But looking at the Oasis as it will hold more books
Kindle Voyage. Love, love, love
My kindle fire…hardly ever use my computer, my fire does everything I need
Paperwhite. I can read it in the sun
Love my fire and it has night light that is adjustable.
Love my paper white. It’s easy to read in any light, more like a actual book
Paperwhite – because it is easy on the eyes, I can change the font size, comfortable to hold, keeps a charge for a long time, can read it outside even in sunlight – and doesn’t act like a notebook, so no distractions from my book.
paperwhite, best for readin in all kinds of light.
Paper White. I’ll never have anything different. I can adjust the brightness for my reading lighting condition.
I have 7″ fire, with the setting I use I can read outside. I got it on a black Friday deal for $35 a couple of years ago. I also use my 10″Samsung tablet that was a couple hundred $
7″ Fire I can watch movies check emails and on sale its always a great purchase as it offers so much. My previous one lasted forever until it broke due to my own fault 🙁
Oasis! I’ve had many since the first but the bigger screen on the Oasis is my favorite!
I love my new Oasis. I love the big screen. Also easier to hold.
That’s what I have ??♀️???
I like the basic model. I don’t need glow light because I live alone. No extra features to get wonky. No “blue light” to interfere with sleep ( not sure how that works but keep reading it does)
I graduated from the keyboard to the Paperwhite and I’m very happy with it. I’d like the Oasis, but I’ll wait until the price comes down. We gave our grandson the kids’ 7″ Fire, and I’ve got a couple of my color quilt books on there.
I have never used a kindle so I have no idea. I use my 10.5″ tablet. I love it. Its nice and big
I have a Voyage and I absolutely love it. Touch screens, page turning buttons just in case you prefer that. I got this strap Amazon sells to help hold the kindle and my life is even easier now.
I like the kindle voyager
Paper white with back light. Can read anywhere, inside, outside, light or no light…
Great in the sunshine when other electronic devices are hard to read. Also can read at night and the battery life is great! It’s the best device for reading in my opinion! 🙂
I had a 7” Fire ( one of the original $49 one, I think they have improved them since then) but didn’t like it. It was sloooow. I got a Paperwhite and love it. I love the light, the screen is easier to read outside, and it is easier on the eyes. It seems more like a book. In fact I often catch myself trying to turn the page.
Paper white- the light is excellent for me.
Much thanks to all you avid readers who took the time to reply! I was leaning towards the Paper White and you validated my thought !!!! A Paper White it shall be!
The one with the light.
I had the Voyager…loved it but got an Oasis…loved it more. My favorite part is not needing a flashlight or lamp to read. Font size and type are adjustable so I don’t need any reading glasses.
Interesting because my Paperwhite (it’s one of the first) is acting up lately and I am wondering which to get now
I love the Voyager and cheaper but I like the Oasis more as it has a smidge larger border to hold it without accidentally hitting the screen turning the page. The direction of wording flips effortlessly depending on which hand you use. Non glare like the Paperwhite
The paper white. Unlike the fire, it is front lit so it basically looks as if you have a book light shining on the pages. So much easier on the eyes.
