Kobo Aura Edition 2 review: It’s better than Amazon’s baseline Kindle, but it’s a lot more expensive

 

The $130 Kobo Aura Edition 2 e-reader is an odd duck. It occupies the mid-point in the Kobo product line, and it boasts such desirable features as backlighting, long battery life, and the ability to open a diverse array of file types. But a number of...

Kobo Aura Edition 2 review: It’s better than Amazon’s baseline Kindle, but it’s a lot more expensive

 

This e-reader just doesn't deliver enough bang for the buck.

Long battery life ; Good build quality ; Can display a wide variety of file types ; No ads

Relatively low resolution (but its 212 ppi is higher than the least-expensive Kindle's 167 ppi) ; Bright backlight, but one that can make text look blurry ; Similary priced competitors deliver more features and performance ; Too easy to accidentally...

E-readers tot 150 euro - Welke leest het lekkerst weg?

 

De Kobo Aura Edition 2 is een prima e-reader die waar biedt voor zijn geld. Het 6"-scherm is met een pixeldichtheid van 212ppi niet het allerscherpste, maar in de praktijk is lezen op de Aura prettig. Ook de verlichting van het scherm is prima. Het...

Ondersteunt alle gangbare bestanden ; Veel instelopties voor tekstweergave

Pixeldichtheid kan beter ; Woordafbrekingen

KOBO Aura Edition 2 eReader

 

It is lightweight

My old Sony reader had a page turn button which I found easier to use than to swipe page. The Kobo does not have this. (I don't use a tablet and I seem to have a heavy finger for touch screen)

Binnen een jaar reeds kapot

 

Deze ereader vorig jaar gekocht. Ik had eerst een Sony , die zijn echter gestopt met ereaders.nDe Kobo blijft opnieuw opstarten onder het lezen, zwaar irritant. Start dan weer op op de bladzijde waar je de vorige keer gebleven was.nAdvies Kobo...
