the red color below is the oasis, brown is the paperwhite.
oasis cover, the problem is the left flap is sorta flopping around unbalanced. i guess too many ppl complaint / return / refunded the original cover design , so now is all full protection type and u cant take the cover off easily.

Between the Paperwhite and Oasis, what’s your preference and opinions ah?
Since you got both

the red color below is the oasis, brown is the paperwhite.

Yeah address abit weird but i got it very fast. I used the ezship service, think less than $20 straight to my house.

The cover i bought from taobao... Works great for me and less than $12 bucks. The Oasis cover selling in Amazon is crazy expensive.

Hmm ��
Ya lor... I also tempted cause of the bigger screen lol ��
Got consider buying a tablet stand?
To hold it and read on a table.
Ya... I would think That the oasis not so much for carrying around or for mobility, more for rather home use with a stand on a table kind of thing.

a lot of people still like & prefer the Voyage hor....but hard to find refurbished 1 already sia now...

Haha I normally read when commuting. I have tablet stand but Hardly read at home. Or you can use those origami cases.

One thing I like bout the oasis is the physical page press button. Like the old kindle keyboard. Voyage touch press abit not friendly

oic....
using the Kindle mostly for commutes...can't use Oasis already man...definitely, Paperwhite or Voyage already haha....

Oasis is more for home use purpose mah since its so much bigger & heavier

I am quite tempted already on the Oasis lol.
since last year wanna buy from Black Friday until now le

I have a Paperwhite 3 which is still going damn strong now..but starting to delete books already from it...4GB capacity almost full house le so no choice need to start deleting stuff lol.

feel like getting the 32GB Oasis for home use solely & leave all the books inside.
don't like to delete stuff....cause i'm a hoarder

i use both interchangeably , once the batt low/flat, i take n use the other one since you can sync to furthest page read.

oasis 3rd gen ( mine ) is actually feels lighter than my paper white cos of the handle type design at 1 end. the bigger screen and the button press makes it very immersive. paper white need to swipe across screen and more often.

its just during commute, when i change bus , change mrt ( i need to change 4 times per trip) , the oasis is more troublesome cos its bigger hence harder to slide in/out of bag. if you have straight bus/train somewhere. its not actually a prob.
