New Oasis with warm light

My Nook Glowlight Plus definitely goes much further into orange at max night mode then my Kobo Forma. Since the purpose is filtering out blue light, I think being able to go more orange is a good thing. And you can still set it at a papery yellow if that's what you prefer.

Personally I find 7.8-8" to be the perfect balance between screen size and portability. Just small enough to still fit in my purse. Whereas, my 9.7 inch iPad doesn't. Also the Nook and the Kobo are easier to hold. So I have always have one or the other of them with me, and the slippery Oasis is the one that stays home.

The point is, its color range is majoritively orange. That's fine if you prefer orange lighting most of the time but not everyone does. For me, a stone white or amber is ideal.
Nothing says that you have to move the slider into that range. Other people might want that orange tone and will appreciate being able to reach it.

I don't mind a light orange hue but I don't want to be locked into orange all of the time either.
Again, having the capability does not mean you have to use it. Or are you stating the moving the colour temperature slider off zero turns the screen orange immediately.

Well obviously a 7" screen will look smaller next to a 7.8" with huge bezels. I think the Oasis strikes a good balance between size and portability. Anything larger would have to be relegated to home use only.
I've used my Aura One as my main ereader for years now and have had no issues carrying it with me. My Forma was larger due to the bezel with the buttons but my wife has no issue with carrying it around. I suppose it would be more correct to say that it is now her ereader as I have no real expectations of having it returned.

And I was not referring to the bezels but to the screen side. 25% larger is very noticeable.

Oasis 3 = Oasis 2.1

The new Kindle Oasis is not worthy of bearing the name Oasis 3.
In reality, it's just an internal micro upgrade.


After the first tests of Oasis 3, I am disappointed again. Because it has the same problem with the battery..

- Really great disappointment
- After the first tests of Kindle Oasis 3, the problem with the battery life persists.
- Due to battery problems, I also sold my previous Oasis 2.. I waited for another model (Oasis 3) but it has the same problem with the battery.


On AMAZON (Oasis 2), each second comment is negative due to battery life.
So why did Amazon make the same mistake with Oasis 3 ?


The new Oasis 3 had to develop some asshole. A purely commercial / marketing strategy.

That is unfortunate. I think many are waiting for reviews on it...... I agree. It's just a refresh. I bet they have something else coming.out at end of year....

- I'd be glad if you were right
- I'd like to go back to kindle, but for the time being, nothing has convinced me.
- I'm not a fan of innovation, I just expect something quality and functional. Sometimes I say if the premium products make any sense.
- Do I get something when I pay for a PREMIUM product? Or just to show off to others and say "look, I have a premium product"

* To pay extra for AMAZON printing on the reader? Like this when you read somewhere in the park, you doing free AMAZON advertising :-D

I like the advertising displayed on the Kindle. I think it looks pretty neat. I also have to admit that I like showing off my Kindle and (for example) my McIntosh Integrated amplifier. I guess different people like different things. For example, I can't stand white rice, but almost all Peruvians eat rice. (I've met maybe 2 or 3 Peruvians who don't like rice, but they're definitely in the minority.) I also love (that's L-O-V-E) innovation. Without innovation, we'd all be reading ebooks by candlelight, because there wouldn't be any light bulbs. And perhaps no ebook reader! Yikes!

No books at all. And no speech. We'd all just grunt and howl still.
