Best Kindle 2017: Kindle, Paperwhite, Voyage or Oasis?

  • 219 Views

The Amazon Kindle has come to be considered the best e-reader money can buy. But money can buy several different kinds at different prices. Here, we take a look at the differences between Kindles, which model is the best for your needs and how much they cost.

The relative affordability (of some models!) and easy-to-use nature, coupled with the fact you can carry thousands of books on one device, means e-readers are an attractive purchase for many, though for some people their phone or tablet screen does just as well, and Amazon’s Kindle app is available on just about every device.

Today there are four different Kindles available direct from Amazon. There are also other brands of e-readers made by different companies. Check out a few over on our list of the 7 best e-readers.

In this article we break down the four models, Kindle, Paperwhite, Voyage and Oasis and explain the differences between them, and why some cost a lot more than others. 

Before we start though, here’s a list of things that are the same on all models of Kindle, no matter which you end up buying:

  • Full access to the entire Amazon Kindle Store
  • Wi-Fi connectivity
  • 6in touchscreen e-ink display
  • Take and share notes within books
