New Oasis back is cold! Does a skin help?
« on: November 10, 2017, 10:43:18 AM »
My hands are cold most of the time, and I'm finding that my fingers are freezing holding the new Oasis.  Has anyone skinned theirs yet?  Does a skin help make it feel not so cold?

I've just skinned mine and it does help, though I can still feel some coolness even with the skin.

Thanks, I'm going to give the skin a try.  I don't really want a cover since I can't find one I like, but may have to resort to one if the skin isn't enough.

Agree with Cagnes. I found the naked Oasis too cold to hold. With a skin it is not as cold (although still cool) and not as slippery. Another benefit is no smudging on the front.

I have cold hands (Reynauld's) but found that the device warms up quickly. That is, it only feels cold at first.

Sounds like a good device for warmer environments!
