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...


Just get the origami case, double up as a stand and protector. I find the Oasis easier to hold than my Voyage cos I prefer using the page turner and you can interchange left or right hand it auto rotates to your direction.

Wah... if traveling, use the PW Ma... more convenient....

Damn lol. I’m gonna buy the oasis 3 for home use solely Lol 😂

Bigger screen more Shiok to use right?


yup, oasis has the yellow screen so reading at night w/o bedroom light is good. paperwhite too bright sometimes..

oasis can get more words per page , so dun have to flip so often and if need to flip, just press harder with the thumb that is holding to the device. manga on oasis is way better too



when i switch back to paperwhite, the page flipping gets annoying cos is much more frequent and need to move finger n swipe lolx.

do note that oasis batt go down faster than paperwhite by a lot ( mobile read/reddits/forums got ppl complain before, so its known issue).

Hi all, I read on Reddit that Kindle owners have been able to ask the CSO to remove the ads on their Kindle. I’m wondering if anyone manages to get theirs removed?

Say that you are overseas and the ads don’t apply and not relevant to you. They will remove

Hello, I have a JP kindle set. Any way to get the ADs remove? I tried contacting the US contact center and they say cannot help.

EDIT: I have contacted JP CS, and they said no way to remove the special offers due to system design
