I have upgraded to every kindle in the last two years. From the kindle, to kindle paperwhite, to kindle voyage and now finally the kindle oasis. I have had it a few months and I love it. It is by far the best of them and definitely worth the money. I love the 32gb so I can store plenty of my books. The only thing that the other kindles have up on the Oasis is the battery life. Where before I could go weeks without charging, I am charging at least once a week or more depending on how much reading I do. Now I do a lot of reading, so that's not too bad. But the paperwhite and voyage definitely have the better battery life. I don't mind charging my oasis at all. It charges pretty quickly. The night mode is one of my favorite features so it isn't bright while my boyfriend is sleeping. The bigger screen makes for faster reading and the lightness is amazing. I never leave home without my oasis. I find myself reading on my oasis more than the phsyical book because it's so much lighter and more convenient in bed. If you were debating on upgrading, I highly recommend it. Love my kindle.
