Kindle Paperwhite vs Kindle Oasis: Which Is Better?


Hey, everyone. Stefan here from project In this video, I’m going to do a comparison of the Kindle Paperwhite versus the Kindle Oasis. I’m going to share with you guys the differences, the benefits, why I love them, and which one that I feel is better. Now, If you guys follow me on Snapchat, Instagram, you guys know that I love my Kindle. My Kindle is one of my prized possessions. It’s something that I cannot live without. This device right here, this small little light device has I think over 150 books on it. I can easily download more with a press of a few buttons. The battery lasts such a long time, and there’s so much life -changing value and information in this one little device. This right here, for me, is worth thousands and thousands of dollars, not only because all the books that are on it are worth thousands, but also the information I could say is worth millions of dollars to me in my lifetime. I love these. I love them a lot better than paperback books. I read paperback for many years, hardcover for years. I had the same fear and worry that a lot of people have, making the transition to Kindle, which is often times people say they love the feel of paperback and things like that. Man, when I got a Kindle, it was like I easily did away with that. I love it. I can never go back. Just the fact that it’s so light, it’s easier to read on. I can speed-read with it. I can have hundreds of books here. I could take it with me when I travel. I don’t have to use up room from my suitcase and whatnot. You can take notes from it. There’s just so many incredible benefits. If you don’t already have a Kindle or something like this, man, this is a life-changing thing right here. That’s the first thing. Paperwhite versus the Oasis. My first Kindle that I got was a Kindle Paperwhite which is right here. This here comes in a case. You can open it up. As you can see, I’ve got my books here on it, my library. You can set up collections in it and everything. The Kindle Paperwhite I liked primarily because there’s no glare on it, and it’s much different than reading from a computer, or an iPad, or whatever it might be, or an iPhone, because when you read from a computer, or an iPad, or something like that, the screen is not really designed for you to read off of. Often times it’s bad for your eyes and can cause headaches, and it’s much more challenging to read, whereas the Paperwhite is basically set up in a way where it’s like reading from an actual book. It’s really great for the eyes. It’s much easier to read on, and it’s a lot more enjoyable. That’s one primary difference reasons why I like the Paperwhite over the Kindle Fire and other ones out there. Other factors that you look for in a Kindle is the battery life, the storage, the speed can make a difference as well. For example, with the Kindle Paperwhite is a little bit slower than the Kindle Oasis, but the features are very comparable. With that said, the Kindle Oasis, I had the Kindle Paperwhite for many years. It served me great. It’s been awesome. I bought it for family and my friends, and my girlfriend, and everything as well. It’s great, but I recently got the Kindle Oasis. The reason is, it has a few features that make it much better than any other Kindle out there. One is it’s very identical. The features are almost the same, except with the Kindle Oasis the battery life is longer. In fact, here this case, if I remove this, this case here has a battery on it. This connects by a magnet to the back here and it actually extends the battery life. This, you can go months without charging it. That’s how awesome it is. It’s also smaller and lighter. If you go to feel the difference, this one is super light. I mean, they’re already pretty light, but the Kindle Oasis is like a totally different level. It’s a lot faster too, which does make a difference if you’re scrolling through books, and pages and things like that so that the speed is much faster as well. The resolution though I find is pretty similar. You can adjust the brightness, a lot of different features. The main reason why I got the Kindle Oasis is this feature right here. Right here on the side there’s two buttons, and with this button, I can just hit it and I can easily change the page. I can just press, press, press, easily change the page, whereas traditionally on other Kindles you got to hold with two hands, and you got to press right there to change the page. Now, the reason why this is a big deal is for speed reading. I like to speed-read certain books, and the Kindle Oasis makes it very easy for you to do that. I can hold it with one hand here, and I can speed-read this book just by going over it just like that. I’m not going to go into speed reading in this video. I might do another video on it, but there’s different strategies like you read every third word, or you read the first sentence and the last sentence of each paragraph and that allows you to consume 80% of what’s on the page. This feature here was well worth the extra money that I spent for this, because now I can consume content much faster and I can speed-read. That’s the main reason why I got the Kindle Oasis. When I discovered this, it was like I bought it just like that. I didn’t even think about it. I was just like, “Man, that feature alone makes it worth it.” Now, this one is not cheap. I think I paid $200, $300 for it. I forget what it cost. The Paperwhite is still even a bit of money as well, but like I said, it’s a no-brainer because I’ve already got thousands of dollars worth of books already that I purchased through this, that spending an extra 100 or 200 bucks to get a device that I could store everything on and consume it faster. For me, if you’re spending money on books, it’s a no-brainer. That’s why I love the Kindle Oasis. Now, they’re both great. I love them both. I’m probably going to sell this one, to be honest with you, and get rid of it because the Kindle Oasis has pretty much replaced it. I love it, guys. Again, the features, the benefits of it are amazing, especially if you enjoy reading. You want to consume content. Another great benefit too is that Kindle books are cheaper than paperback books. If you’re buying from the Kindle Store, typically they’re around $10, even less, whereas paperback books for the same book can be $20 or even more than that. That’s one reason why I love it as well is that you actually save money long-term owning a Kindle, and that’s just the direction of the way that things are going as well. I love my Kindle Oasis, guys. Hopefully, that shares with you a little bit the difference. If you guys want to know more, click the link below. It will take you to the Kindle on Amazon, the Oasis, and the Paperwhite. On the Amazon page, you can actually see a comparison. They actually have a comparison of the different eReaders that they have, but so far the Oasis has been the best thing that I’ve had so far. Highly recommend it. Great tool to have. If you still want to read paperback, great, but it’s still definitely worthwhile to have one of these as well. Thank you for watching the video. Hit the like button if you enjoyed it. If you already have a Kindle, leave a comment below. I’d love to know which one you have, how you enjoy it. If you have any books you might recommend, I’d love to hear those as well.

    I started with the Sony Reader about 6 or 7 years ago (fell in love with e-readers, totally), then got a Kobo, and finally a Kindle Paperwhite a couple of years ago. The Paperwhite is so amazing and I just love it! I looked up the Oasis because it looks awesome…but the price point is high. Great video, though. Love seeing reviews of incredible gadgets.😊

  7. Nocholas says:

    I bought the Paper White with the same case about this time last year. I was very skeptical at the time, but I am so glad that I made that transition. I love reading on it.

    Thanks for the video. I have a Paperwhite but have been thinking of moving up to an Oasis. I love my Kindle, but everything I hear makes it sound even better.

  13. Felix Erazo says:

    i Have the paper white from 2014, just ordered the Oasis. Now, what I need to do is do some speed reading. Thank You for your review!

  14. Jay Vansickle says:

    i love my Paperwhite 3…. the touchscreen doesn't bothers me at all. As much as I'd like to have an Oasis…the price jump is too much for me. Now…if it were given as a gift…i would gladly accept it.
    i personally think they over sold the battery life….in reality you get about 2-3 weeks more than the other kindles. while that is a nice extra bit of charge time….its not really as grand as they wanted it to seem. without the "extra battery" in the cover…you only gets 2 weeks.
    That being said…it is a very slick, high end device.

  15. Goldmeteora says:

    nice review

  16. Nima Najmi says:

    please make a vid and test paperwhite in crash test run some thing like les Miserables 2000-3000 page to see does it crash or slow down becouse i want to buy one and i read massive books and i want to know if that can run it smoothly or not

  17. Charles Tsai says:

    I'll buy your paper white. I lost mine.

  18. No Names says:

    Loved your minimalistic interior and your genuine passion for this little Kindle Oasis.

  19. Niki S says:

    I have Kindle Voyage. Lovin it. Origami cover make it even better.

  20. Tim Titus says:

    I love your house

  21. Martial Artist says:

    I agree, I take my Kindle Oasis everywhere. I actually finish 3 books a month compared to 1 paper book. Definitely one of my prized possessions. I own over a thousand books and to think a device with a battery lasting almost 2 months carries wealth, power, and knowledge.

  22. CrispyKing says:

    hey man, can you please tell me the top 5 best ebooks you recommend to be motivated, change habits, etc?

  23. Swords Sunflowers says:

    tnx for the review, i went ahead and purchased the oasis 😂, i feel my wallet crying in agony, but it's worth it, i love to read but my eyes get tired really easily when i read through my tablets (samsung tab A, ipad2) barely use my phone for reading. i like how u put it that books are indeed valuable, made me think, hence, oasis is a good painful investment, was debating a bit whether to buy the voyager instead, but i like the physical buttons, size of the oasis…anyways, looking forward to reading with the oasis!

  24. GoodMorningButch says:

    personally I got the paperwhite because the new features of the oasis aren't ones that are essential to my reading experience, so not worth the money for me

  25. Theresa M says:

    What's the benefit of speed reading? Unless you have to learn something and you can learn it very quickly, I don't understand why you'd want to read a book at lightning speed. Anyone?
