Why buy a Kindle when there are other brands that allows open source formats (ePub) like Kobo etc? Sure Kindle has their own store but many people probably will download their books not from the store but mostly from third party and free (or even illegal) websites. Definitely not worth the price premium for a Kindle.
The far more important question to ask Amazon is when will their workers stop having to work through horrendous working conditions.
I do not pity those that willingly enter closed ecosystems like Amazon's or Apple. You brought this on yourself.
The only way to send the message you are trying to send is not with an article on gsmarena, the only way they'll understand is not buying flawed devices. It seems you already went through three of those.

Anonymous, 12 Aug 2018Do not rant on this website for your bad experience with KindleWhat's the problem. It's a good blog.
Then don't use a kindle! Buy a Kobo, buy a device that's friendly to open source software and let's you easily manage your collections, connect to your other devices, import any books you'd like, and even customise the software if that's your thing. Don't be an Amazon slave.
It would have been even better if the nightlight didn’t just reduce brightness gradually, but also had a blue light filter., pretty sure e-ink displays dont have blue light so how filter it
I have used Kindle since the firat generation, Nook, and Kobo...Still have a Paperwhite 2, a Voyage, a Kobo Aura HD, and Kobo Aura Edition 1. I love the market on Amazon..probably have four hundred books, but the lack of other features on newer models is why I stick with my out dated Kobo Aura HD. Best device I have used so far....Nook being the worst. My next eInk device will definitely have a larger screen and a stylus.
made too much money with apple's business model (exorbitant price for the hardware you get) so they don't care ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It wouldn't be too far fetched to think it's possible to use that to sell "more advanced" e-readers. I don't think any Kindle support any type of comic books today.
The whole point is to read offline if needed like when flying or on the beach. I'd say one problem is a good screen. Ereader screens if good don't need a lot of light and can reflect back available light. They also need enormous gray scale but don't need color. It doesn't work the same as other display tech built around being colorful. Problem is the lack of demand as plenty of people just try to get by on their phones or regular tablets.

An Oasis would be much lighter and would last much longer without charge and those are my main reasons for wanting one, otherwise I'm fine reading on a tablet with a good screen.

Reading off a tablet or a phone is going to strain your eyes to no end and make your job impossible.
Isn't it simple? A device with very limited function like this if you make everything right from the beginning how do you make people buy upgrades? The Oasis IMO is much too expensive for the hardware. A low end unimetal body phone/tablet could easily be 2/3 the price, maybe lower. While I can find the old oasis discounted to an acceptable price only the new one's upgrades make it "proper".
