The Paperwhite remains the better overall value, but the updated Kindle Oasis secures its position as the best e-reader if price is no object.
The latest version of the Kindle Paperwhite White is more durable, fully dunkable and ultimately the best Kindle reader for most people -- especially if you snag it during one of Amazon's frequent sales.
Although the Paperwhite remains the Kindle to get, the cheapest Kindle now includes an integrated light, plus an improved design that makes it more appealing.

Sony's second-generation DPT-RP1 features a crisper display, slightly slimmer design and a more responsive touchscreen.
