Kobo Vox review

theverge.com
30 January 2012
  • Summary: In the race for the best 7-inch tablet, the Amazon Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet have zoomed past the competition with sub-$250 price points and well-rounded reading and app selections. But a third competitor with similar tactics has just suited up to take the track: Kobo’s Vox. Kobo itself might have just been acquired by Rakuten , but that isn’t stopping the company from forging on with its own $200 Android tablet.
  • Pros: Easy to sideload apps, Looks decent from afar, Good selection of books
  • Cons: Feels cheap, Screen can be unresponsive, Software is sluggish, Much slower than the Fire or Nook Tablet

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The price may be right at $199, but the Kobo Vox Android tablet/ebook reader cuts too many corners and falls short of the competition in nearly every way.
  • Pros: Bright 1,024-by-600-pixel display. Tracks reading progress and statistics.
  • Cons: Unresponsive screen. Sluggish performance. Unpolished OS. Poor battery life for an ebook reader.

  • Excerpt: Some people would have you think that the Kobo Vox is the device of choice if you are looking for an Android tablet that’s good for a little bit of mobile browsing and for a little bit of e-book reading on the go. The Vox is available as part of a larger group of Android tablets that are being positioned as feature-rich e-book readers. How well—or how poorly—does it perform in this regard?

Kobo Vox review

Pocket Lint
15 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The compromise you have to make with the Kobo Vox is clear: it is good value for money and you get a tablet that has been reasonably well built and offers a wide variety of features. But you get neither the best tablet experience nor the best reading device. As a tablet it lacks the Google certification and version of Android that would give you the best experience.
  • Pros: Cheap, Kobo's modifications make itservices easy to get into
  • Cons: It's neither the best solution for reading, nor the best for a tablet, battery life is poor, lacks Google certification

  • Summary: Hot on the heels of the Kobo Wireless and the Kobo Touch comes the Kobo Vox – the latest addition to the Canadian brand’s ereader arsenal and another UK exclusive for WH Smith. Read the Kobo Touch review Clearly designed to rival the Amazon Kindle Fire, which has yet to make it to UK shores, the touchscreen-toting Kobo Vox runs on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), putting it a step behind top spec Honeycomb-flavoured tablets.

Kobo Vox eReader [Test]

Blogue de Geek
14 April 2013
  • Conclusion: C’est assez rare que je teste des gadgets auquels je donne une mauvaise note, mais dans le cas de la Kobo Vox eReader , je ne peux pas trouver de défaite à cette tablette qui semble avoir été commercialisé avec un prix abordable au détriment de la qualité matériel. Côté logiciel, l’équipe a fait un excellent travail et c’est dommage de voir la latence dans l’exécution des tâches.
  • Pros: Abordable
  • Cons: Performance médiocre, Latence frustrante, Google Play non-disponible
