I find the Oasis faster than the paper white. I really like it and especially the nighttime filter.

the e-ink tech itself hasn't changed much, but the oasis does feel snappier than my 4th gen paperwhite. the newer processor probably helps.

"On a hardware level the Kindle Oasis is the first e-reader in the world to utilize the Freescale/NXP IMX.7 dual-core 1GHz processor. This CPU is far superior to the Freescale 6SLL Cortex-A9 @800M/1GHz processor that the Paperwhite employs."

The paperwhite isn’t laggy and slow. The Oasis is slightly faster.
