Thinner, lighter, and more ergonomic, Amazon’s Kindle Oasis is the best Kindle to date — so long as a 6-inch display will do. It weighs just 4.6 ounces compared to the Paperwhite’s 7.2 and concentrates most of its internal electronics in its tapered handgrip to make holding it for long periods of time more comfortable. While the display is touch sensitive, two physical page turn buttons also give you a tactile option for flipping through pages. It’s also got a sharp 300 ppi display, a redesigned backlight that’s more uniform, and comes included with a leather case — available in black, merlot, or walnut — that snaps on magnetically and boasts a built-in battery, recharging your kindle when connected and boosting battery life to months instead of weeks.
