My Nook Glowlight Plus definitely goes much further into orange at max night mode then my Kobo Forma. Since the purpose is filtering out blue light, I think being able to go more orange is a good thing. And you can still set it at a papery yellow if that's what you prefer.

Personally I find 7.8-8" to be the perfect balance between screen size and portability. Just small enough to still fit in my purse. Whereas, my 9.7 inch iPad doesn't. Also the Nook and the Kobo are easier to hold. So I have always have one or the other of them with me, and the slippery Oasis is the one that stays home.

Nothing says that you have to move the slider into that range. Other people might want that orange tone and will appreciate being able to reach it.

Again, having the capability does not mean you have to use it. Or are you stating the moving the colour temperature slider off zero turns the screen orange immediately.

I've used my Aura One as my main ereader for years now and have had no issues carrying it with me. My Forma was larger due to the bezel with the buttons but my wife has no issue with carrying it around. I suppose it would be more correct to say that it is now her ereader as I have no real expectations of having it returned.

And I was not referring to the bezels but to the screen side. 25% larger is very noticeable.

Exclamation A new problem with the battery

Oasis 3 = Oasis 2.1

The new Kindle Oasis is not worthy of bearing the name Oasis 3.
In reality, it's just an internal micro upgrade.


After the first tests of Oasis 3, I am disappointed again. Because it has the same problem with the battery..

- Really great disappointment
- After the first tests of Kindle Oasis 3, the problem with the battery life persists.
- Due to battery problems, I also sold my previous Oasis 2.. I waited for another model (Oasis 3) but it has the same problem with the battery.


On AMAZON (Oasis 2), each second comment is negative due to battery life.
So why did Amazon make the same mistake with Oasis 3 ?


The new Oasis 3 had to develop some asshole. A purely commercial / marketing strategy.

That is unfortunate. I think many are waiting for reviews on it...... I agree. It's just a refresh. I bet they have something else coming.out at end of year....

I like the advertising displayed on the Kindle. I think it looks pretty neat. I also have to admit that I like showing off my Kindle and (for example) my McIntosh Integrated amplifier. I guess different people like different things. For example, I can't stand white rice, but almost all Peruvians eat rice. (I've met maybe 2 or 3 Peruvians who don't like rice, but they're definitely in the minority.) I also love (that's L-O-V-E) innovation. Without innovation, we'd all be reading ebooks by candlelight, because there wouldn't be any light bulbs. And perhaps no ebook reader! Yikes!

That would give you a battery life of about 7 - 10,5 hours. Sure, it is not the end of the world (that is within the range of a good android tablet), but it is quite bad compared to other ebook-reader.


The Paperwhite (and other 6" devices) lasts for about 6 weeks (based on 30 minutes of reading per day), which sums up to 21 hours.


The bigger 7,8" Pocketbook Inkpad 3 lasts 4 weeks (based on 30 minutes of reading per day), which sums up to 14 hours.

i'm sure it's longer than 10.5 hours. it was only a guestimate and i don't really remember the last time i plugged it in to charge. besides that, i'm sure if someone can do a full test, that adding up daily 1/2 hour reading sessions would not come out to be the same as daily 2 hour (or 4 hour, etc.) reading sessions.

My Oasis 2 is really bad compared to other ereaders. I have to charge it more often than my Forma or my Glowlight Plus 2, even though I use it less. It really is more like a tablet for battery life.
