Decided it was time to update my 2012-era Kindle Paperwhite. The display wasn't quite as crisp and the lighting was only so-so. After debating over a newer Paperwhite and the Oasis, I decided the extra brightness of the Oasis would be worth it. Can't stand constant ads, so I bought the ""no special offers"" version. And these days, between a hotspot via my phone and wi-fi everywhere, I felt that I don't really need the Cell Network version. This is my 5th(?) Kindle, and I gave up on the cell versions a while back and have not regretted that. Except for the rather high price compared with the newer Paperwhite, I'm pleased with the Oasis. I like the size of the screen - slightly larger than the 2018 Paperwhite - and the much brighter LED backlight. Neither was going to fit in one of my petite-sized pockets, so that aspect of the form factor did not particularly matter to me. Still, I like the thinner edge of this one and having configurable page-turning buttons is sometimes useful. The better resolution is a definite plus, though the regular Paperwhite does have that too. Page turning is quick enough and the usual navigation methods still work (swiping, light touch, etc.). It sometimes takes an extra second to connect to my wi-fi when I open it from a long ""sleep"" period. However, so far I have not used the Audible feature, even though I have a pretty large library of both Audible and Kindle material. I use my phone for that since it does slip easily into a pocket. I'm typically doing chores like laundry or yard work when I'm listening to Audible, so for that the phone is a better companion than the much bigger Oasis. So the 8GB version seems like it will be enough for me. For comic-book type materials, I typically use the Kindle App on either my phone or an iPad. So again, no need for extra GB of space. In all, I am pleased with the purchase and recommend it if you are looking to upgrade your older Kindle.
