Kindle Paperwhite vs Kindle Oasis: Which Is Better?
If you follow me on Snapchat, you know that I love Kindle. It is something that I cannot live without.
I read paperback books for years.
I had the same fear and worry that a lot of people have about making the transition to Kindle, but now, I'm hooked.
Watch the video below:
There is so much life changing value that you can receive from owning a Kindle. The information that is in on here is worth millions of dollars to me.
I like the Kindle Paperwhite because there is no glare on it. The screen from an i-Pad or a computer is not designed for you to read off of, so it is bad for your eyes.
Alternatively, the Kindle Paperwhite is set up in such a a way that it's like reading from a book, and it’s easier on the eyes.
I had this Kindle for many years, but I recently made a transition to the Kindle Oasis.
In comparison to the Kindle Paperwhite, the Kindle Oasis has a much longer battery life. You can literally go for months without charging it. It is also smaller, lighter, and a lot faster.
The main reason that I purchased the Kindle Oasis is the speed-reading feature – it has buttons on the side of it that easily let you change the pages.
I like to speed-read certain books. This feature was well worth the extra money because now I can consume content much faster.
They are both great Kindles, especially if you enjoy reading. More importantly, you save money, long-term, by owning a Kindle.
Deepak Chopra once said, “You will be transformed by what you read”. Purchase a Kindle and enjoy the life-changing value that it provides.
Once you do, you will never go back to paperback books!
Hey, everyone! Stefan here from ProjectLifeMastery.com. 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. If you guys follow me on Snapchat and Instagram, you 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 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 is so much life-changing value and information on it. This right here is worth thousands and thousands of dollars for me, not only because all the books that are on it are worth thousands, but also because the information is worth millions of dollars to me. I love these. I love them a lot more than paperback books.
I read paperback for many years. Hardcover books for years. I had the same fear and worry that a lot of people have in making the transition to Kindle. Oftentimes people say that they love the feel of paperback. When I got a Kindle, I easily did away with that. I love it. I can never go back. Just the fact that it's so light and it's easier to read on. I can speed-read with it. I can have hundreds of books on here, I can take it with me when I travel, and I don't have to use up room in my suitcase.
The Kindle Paperwhite
There are just so many incredible benefits. If you don't already have a Kindle, this is a life-changing thing. That's the first thing. Now, Paperwhite versus the Oasis. My first Kindle that I got was a Kindle Paperwhite. This comes in a case. You can open it up. As you can see, I've got my books on it. You can set up collections on it and everything.
I liked The Kindle Paperwhite primarily because there's no glare on it, and it's much different than reading from a computer, an iPad, an iPhone, or whatever it might be, because when you read from a computer or an iPad, the screen is not really designed for you to read off of. Oftentimes 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 reason 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, and the speed. For example, the Kindle Paperwhite is a little bit slower than the Kindle Oasis, but the features are very comparable. With that said, I had the Kindle Paperwhite for many years. It has served me great. It's been awesome. I bought it for family, friends, and my girlfriend.
This is why I love the Kindle Oasis
It's great, but I recently got the Kindle Oasis. The reason is that it has a few features that make it much better than any other Kindle out there. One, is that it's very identical. The features are almost the same, except with the Kindle Oasis the battery life is longer. In fact, this case here has a battery on it. This connects by a magnet to the back here, and it actually extends the battery life. You can go months without charging this. 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 are already pretty light, but the Kindle Oasis is a totally different level. It's a lot faster too, which does make a difference if you're scrolling through books, pages and things like that, so that the speed is much faster as well. I find that the resolution is pretty similar. You can adjust the brightness. There are 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 are two buttons, and with this button, I can just hit it, and I can easily change the page.
I can just press, press, press, and easily change the page, whereas traditionally on other Kindles you have got to hold with two hands, and you have 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 are 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, “That feature alone makes it worth it”.
Now, this one is not cheap. I think I paid $200 or $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 to get a device that I could store everything on and consume it faster. For me, if you are spending money on books, it's a no-brainer. That's why I love the Kindle Oasis.
You actually save money long-term owning a Kindle
Now, they are 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. Again, the features and the benefits of it are amazing, especially if you enjoy reading. You want to consume content. Another great benefit is that Kindle books are cheaper than paperback books. If you're buying from the Kindle Store, typically they are 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, 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. Hopefully, that shares with you a little bit of 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.
I highly recommend it. Great tool to have. If you still want to read the paperback, great, but it's still definitely worthwhile to have one of these as well. Thank you for watching the video.
