Funnily enough, it works with the new book I am reading. I guess it's rather selective, let's see if this happens with another book.

I received the oasis yesterday and so far I must say I'm impressed.
Compared to the previous gen, the light is more even although if you look closely you can see areas of the screen where it's uneven but I reckon I am very sensitive on this subject (I couldn't stand watching my voyage and it's blotchy screen).
The e reader is snappy and very comfortable to hold, the page turn buttons are a killer feature for me. My 4th gen Paperwhite seems a cheap device when put side by side with the oasis.
I have a doubt: is it better to let the battery drain and then do a full recharge or should I instead do that now?
Thanks

I ended up getting one as well though I hardly needed a new Kindle. I blame this thread and my weak will. Anyway, I am very happy with it until the next shiny object.

There was a discussion on batteries recently and it seems there is no need to drain your battery these days. I'm not sure I know how to link things here so hope this works.

I've been tempted with this too. Trust me, we all feel your pain and understand.

I bought an Oasis 3 on August 8th. I returned it on August 19th. Comparing the Oasis 3 with my Paperwhite 4 the screen on the Oasis could be brighter. For reading, for me, they were equal. Colored lights only interest me at Christmas. The size was, for me, inconvenient. I can slip my Paperwhite 4 into my pants pocket or a pocket on my Guayabera shirt but not the Oasis. As for page-turn buttons, I don't need buttons on my Kindle or my fly.

My most positive impression was the cloth cover for the Oasis. After the Oasis 2 cover fiasco and the Voyage California Origami cover I found the very practical Oasis 3 cover refreshing. To be honest, if the cost were the same as a Paperwhite 4, I might have kept it to use just at home. But, it isn't even close to the same price. $270 vs. $150 gets me a lot of books.

I've had no problem resisting this time. Except for the extra colored lights there are only slight differences from the Oasis 2 and 3. I can wait for the next one.

That's the main reason I never purchased and Oasis and what keeps saving my wallet.

Has anyone else found that the Oasis 3 has better battery life than the Oasis 2? The short battery life was one of my biggest gripes with the last one. I used to have to charge the O2 every few days but I've gone well over a week now without needing to charge the O3.
