- Asymmetrical design might not be for everyone
In fact, there are only 3 changes to be found -- but one of them could be very important to you depending on when and where you read.
Let's get the smaller ones out of the way first:
- The Kindle Oasis 2019 features an optimized page-turning system. While Amazon claims its the fastest ever, the Oasis 2017 was no slouch and few reviewers noticed an obvious difference.
- It's slightly more expensive. Which wouldn't always be a big deal, but the Oasis series has always had luxury pricing. If you're looking for a budget e-reader, the Oasis (2019) is not it.
But the big update which should interest anyone looking at the Kindle Oasis 2019 is the screen.
This is the first Kindle e-reader to feature a temperature adjustable light. This means you can make the screen warmer (yellower) or cooler (bluer) based on your preferences. It should also help to reduce eyestrain on those late-night reading binges.
Reviewers found the lighting smooth and the adjustment capabilities nice. You can even schedule when you'd like the temperature to change so you never have to dive into the settings yourself.
Otherwise, the Kindle Oasis (2019) is identical to the Oasis (2017) -- it even supports the same accessories.
