Kobo Vox review

theverge.com
23 November 2011
  • Excerpt: 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.
  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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

  • 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.
  • Pros: Abordable
  • Cons: Performance médiocre, Latence frustrante, Google Play non-disponible
