Kobo Vox review

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

Kobo Vox

  • 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.

Kobo Vox

  • 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 eReader [Test]

Blogue de Geek

  • 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
