Itís bad enough that itís really distracting me while reading and Iím not enjoying the read or getting an experience I would expect for a premium device. Before itís mentioned yes this happens in lower and bright light settings including dark or light environments but is far less obvious in direct sunlight but I could read in pitch black on PW3.

I was doing some testing and thought you guys probably know a ton more than me about this stuff so here goes... I donít own a case yet so the oasis 2 is constantly on an incline while not being used and the button area is higher. I was thinking if the kindle uses a liquid in its display is it all draining down to the lower section and causing it to make the left side look darker? I canít test for a couple of days but before I attempt to return it I thought I would check if this theory is possible. So if I had a case or kept it flat would this fix/help it? My paperwhite were always in cases and resting flat on tables and I never had this issue.

Thanks
The liquid is in over a million tiny capsules and does not move around in the manner you describe and has nothing to do with lighting evenness. Kindles can be read in any orientation so a tiny tilt is not going to affect that aspect of reading.

It may be that you are too sensitive to the Oasis light gradient to enjoy reading on it. Some people can't stand the light gradient on any eink reader.

If you are OK with reading on a paperwhite, you might want to stick with that.

Keeping the Oasis level will not help with the lighting.
