Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ Review

Digitaltrends
28 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Barnes & Noble wants you to think of the Nook HD+ as a regular tablet, not an e-reading tablet with benefits. What holds it back from that? The lack of certain hardware elements like a camera, GPS, fancy sensors (barometers, thermometers, a gyroscope), NFC, and the like. Restricting owners to one content store and limiting some of Android’s features also brings the HD+ into question.
  • Pros: Comfortable, lightweight design, Excellent display, Good reading experience for magazines, comics, kid's books, Well-designed interface, Profiles for multi-user households and kids, Speedy performance, Long battery life
  • Cons: Limited when compared to most Android tablets, Small app selection, No cameras

Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet HD+ Review

Good E-Book Readers
9 January 2013
  • Conclusion: The Nook HD+ is heavy and cumbersome. It is not the most portable of units, when you compare it against the Nook Tablet or Nook HD. This is going to be used in the home or the classroom. You certainly aren’t going to be carrying this around in your day to day life. One of the main drawbacks is the inability to load in your own apps. You won’t be able to find anything that directly competes with Barnes and Noble’s store.
  • Pros: Updated Store Looks Amazing, Article View Technology Makes Image Heavy Content Easy to Read, High Resolution, Newspapers Have Text to Speech, Family Friendly, Large eTextbook Library, Movies and TV Shows
  • Cons: No Cameras, Heavy, Inability to Sideload Apps, Locked into Barnes and Noble’s Walled Garden, Sparse App Selection for Alternative Reading Apps

  • Conclusion: The Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ is a good choice for book lovers, but its smaller 7-inch sibling is a better bet. We want a lot more from a 9-inch tablet.

Barnes & Noble NOOK HD+ Review

Phone Arena
19 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Staring deeply at the $270 price of the 16GB base model of the NOOK HD+ ($300 for the 32GB version), there’s no arguing that their intent is to keep Amazon itching with anticipation. Rightfully so, they’re able to do just that, as the NOOK HD+ has the more detailed display of the two – while also being lighter as well. However, it’s missing out on several key features to make it an instant buy over other highly-prized full tablet offerings on the market.
  • Pros: Super affordable price point, Very sharp looking display, great for reading
  • Cons: Sluggish overall performance, App selection is limited, No cameras

  • Excerpt: The Nook HD+ is one of the best large-screen tablets on the market thanks to its 1920 x 1280 high resolution screen and relatively low price, and it just got a whole lot better with the release of N2A cards to give it Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

  • Summary: Like its little brother, the Nook HD+ provides a sharp screen, solid performance and the best book and magazine experience you can get on a mobile device. Moms and dads will like how easy it is to set up multiple profiles and the built-in parental controls. Considering that it's still light enough for many users to hold in one hand and costs just $70 more, many will prefer the added screen real estate on the HD+.
  • Pros: Sharp display, Best tablet reading experience, Useful parental controls, Long battery life, Affordable price
  • Cons: Limited Android implementation, Few apps, No camera

20 November 2012
  • Excerpt: When Barnes and Noble first unveiled the Nook HD and Nook HD+ back in September, I was intrigued by the unique screen size of the 9-inch Nook HD+. But ultimately I decided to get a 7-inch Nook HD because I’ve been reviewing a lot of 7-inch tablets lately like the Kindle Fire HD and Google […]Read more

Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ review

itproportal.com
7 December 2012
  • Conclusion: The Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ is a solid media and web tablet for £229. The slate has an impressive screen and build quality, and it’s cheap considering this. However, compared to rival larger tablets, the Nook HD+ lags considerably behind on content and app selection. There’s no front-facing camera, either. Indeed, unless magazines are your killer app, the smaller, more portable Nook HD delivers all the best aspects of the Nook HD+ experience for just £159.
  • Pros: Great high resolution screen, Good build quality, Inexpensive, Supports multiple users
  • Cons: Limited media support and app selection, Weak on the Wi-Fi front
