Product Comparison: Kindle Oasis vs Kindle Voyage
- The screen is really nice. I believe it is supposed to have the same 300 PPI screen than the Kindle Paperwhite, but side-by-side the Oasis screen is much crisper. You see it in the text as well as images in books or magazines.
- You literally hardly feel like you are holding anything this device is so light. My phone, another tablet, really everything feels like a rock compared to it.
- Larger screen that fits lots more text. This is a big plus.
- The 300 ppi display may sound like other kindles, but I find the contrast to be better. Plus, the larger size gets more on the page. More like reading a regular size page in a paper book.
- It's an awkward size. While I like the bigger screen, it also means that you can't fit it into your pocket like other Kindle's or even into the pockets of some backpacks.
- Love the size, weight, and clarity of my Kindle Voyage. Hate the advertisement screen saver. Liked my Paperwhite screen saver with the pencils, pens, and other writing implements.
- The Voyage has a great screen and easy to use settings. It has slightly less weight but not enough to make much of a difference.
- The PPI resolution (300) makes reading easy with less eye strain
- Read anywhere....no sun glare outside (like the Fire)...no extra reading lamp at night...perfect
- The uniformity of the screen is still an issue... - This is a BIG one. Part of the reason I still tend to gravitate to my aging Kindle Touch is because there's no front-lighting system built in.
- Page turn buttons, which can be changed to suit (e.g. top button can be advance or go back). They are better in theory than practice, but I applaud the return to buttons (while still allowing page taps).
- Waterproof. Can use in the bathroom without thinking that can damage it.
- Faster page turns than any other Kindle I have seen.
- The comfortable grip which allows handling device using one hand and using hard buttons to turn pages.
- Beautiful screen with terrific reverse white on dark gray background for reading in bed...no glare for my wife
- No sleep switch for the Audible function
- Battery side is heavy and the unit feels out of balance
- Touchscreen is very sensitive and slight touches that you might not realize, especially when closing the lid
- t's heavy. I'm surprised at this. They should have stuck with plastic to keep the weight down.
- Page turns using the touch screen and the bezel pressure touch work quickly.
- Set up, including Wi-Fi connecting very easy with no disconnect or other network issues.
- Vocabulary Builder: A great idea for those words that you're unfamiliar with. It's great for adults and children both. The only issue with this is also part of the issues as a whole (specially my point 3 below in cons)...
- Page Press buttons are more of an irritant than a help. If you hold it normally it is easy to accidentally turn the page when you don't intend to.
- The power button is in a terrible location, especially if you use the official amazon origami cover.
