First, I'm sorry that some of the responses were unpleasant.

Absolutely I'd buy it again. It's a great device, the best Kindle yet. Battery life is absolutely fine. It will vary of course, depending on whether you have a cellular one, keep WiFi on all the time, how good your WiFi and/or cellular signal is, etc. It's not at all poor, you'll get a few days reading out of it. I think you'll really enjoy your new Oasis!

I have a DecalGirl skin on mine so having a new color doesn't interest me. It is very nice looking though!

I don't see the big deal or why people are bashing the Oasis. We all should have access to an outlet or computer to charge it so why is it a big deal if you need to charge it every couple of days?

Just connect your Kindle to your computer via USB and drag and drop the file into the documents folder. Quick and simple.

You are asking in a Kindle forum so that's probably why you got no response. This is for the ereaders. The Fires are not Kindles.

I've had mine for almost two months now and I love it. Best Kindle yet.

Honestly I've never seen the need for a users guide. I got one with each Kindle I bought but never used them. The devices are really very user friendly. If you don't get one when you register your Kindle you can always redownload it. I think a copy is kept your Kindle library on the site and can be downloaded from the Kindle section. :)

As Ann said, go to the Accessories forum. There are several threads about covers.

Wow. No words.

Why is your post riddled with question mark images?

I'm finding the battery life on mine (8G, Wifi-only) to be nowhere near what Amazon advertised. 2-3 days instead of weeks.

It charges fast (1-2 hours from empty to full) but runs down in a matter of days. I typically read 20-30 minutes per day at night, maybe 4-5 days/week, backlight on auto so the light isn't on that bright. I've had to charge it at least twice since getting it on 10/31. I do have Wifi and Bluetooth on but it isn't connected to anything.

I've reset it with 94% battery left and will check it in the coming days. Then I'll turn Bluetooth off and see if that makes a difference but right now, I'm not all that happy with the battery life.

Keeping Bluetooth on will decrease battery life as it is always scanning for new devices to pair to.

Got mine today and I am very pleased! The larger screen is really fantastic and I love the lightness and thinness. I find it much more pleasant to read than my previous Oasis.

Keeping the screen at maximum or near maximum brightness all the time will definitely shorten your battery life. So will keeping 3G on all the time. Also, if you just got it it may still be indexing.

I wish Oberon would make a case or sleeve.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Warning About Returning Kindles
« on: November 11, 2017, 12:17:22 AM »
I know a lot of you have returned multiple Kindles until you got one you felt was satisfactory,  so I thought I'd throw this out there. When I ordered my Oasis16, the first one had a defective charging cover. Contacted Amazon and they exchanged it, no problem. The replacement sadly was also defective so I exchanged it again. Fortunately the third one was perfect.

A few weeks after I got the third one I got an email from Amazon warning me about my "excessive returns" and that my account could be suspended if it continued. Mind you, the Kindle is literally the the ONLY thing I've ever returned/exchanged in my many many years with Amazon. I responded to the email, explained why I had returned the first two, and haven't heard anything since. My account is in good standing. I thought I'd let you guys know though, as it seems Amazon isn't being so generous with exchanges/returns anymore.

It gets better! On Thursday I got an email saying my delivery date would be revised and it would be here on the 15th. Then today I got an email saying it has shipped and will be here tomorrow! I haven no idea what's going on. I've never had this musical delivery date thing before....

I am furious with Amazon. I ordered the new Oasis. I wasn't one of the special people who was able to get it delivered on release day. My delivery day was November 21st. Fine. But then on Tuesday I got an email saying they were able to move my delivery date up to today, Hurrah!!! I was very excited! But guess what? This afternoon I get an email saying "Sorry, there has been a delay" and my delivery date was changed to November 30th! I was livid. Amazon said they are sorry, but there's nothing they can do. They had a new shipment come in but it sold out before they got to me.  :'(

I don't know what you mean by help with the lighting effects, but I love my Oasis and have used it both ways. The screen and lighting are perfect.

I think some people are just super picky when it comes to screens. Granted, I'm legally blind in one eye so maybe my screen is horrible and I can't see it, but I am very happy with it. Even though this is my third Oasis (the first two had connection issues with the cover) all three screens were just fine. This pic isn't 100% accurate because the resize blurred it slightly. The text is dark and crisp.
