Summary: So close to a five star: For my uses, it is vital for a device to be standard Android. I use some software that has not been ported to iOS or Kindle, so iPads and Fire HDXs won't work, I've tried both, whereas the Kobo runs them just fine. Yes, Kobo has made some tweaks to Android for e-reading, but they aren't on the home page and can be ignored. The good - excellent screen, fast, stable.

Summary: This isn't the first KOBO that I've had. I have always been satisfied with them and Weill continue to be faithful to them. I like the easde of being able to buy books on any app. This was a good find for an excellent price.
Summary: Poor overall quality in function, design, and material. No microSD slot, so memory is limited to native 16GB. No rear camera. Cheap back cover material and design. Very few language support. Only two launch/menu screens available to user. Screen shows a reddish tint, it is uneasy for viewing after a while.
Summary: The slight red tinge to the screen is only noticeable if you compare it to an iPad. Text quality is excellent and unlike Apple products you can easily drag and drop video files onto this device. MX Player allowed me to zoom video to eliminate black bars and works very well. If you want more than two screens it's very easy to change launchers.
Summary: Very poor overall quality. The display screen has rough unpolished edge. The bezel edge is not smooth. No rear camera. No microSD slot. Very few language support. Poor back cover material and design. Poor and limited manual selection screen (only two screens available for use). Screen color has an unnatural oversaturated reddish tint. This is the worst high screen resolution tablet l have ever seen. I wonder who made the design, and who manufactured it.
This tablet (almost) replaced my laptop and computer.

Summary: I love my Kobo that was given to me as a gift. It replaced me having to lug my laptop to school and work. It also barely has lag and great with multi-tasking.I highly recommend for students as it's very compact and lightweight making it great for long travel!
