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

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.

  • 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 Review

CNET
14 February 2012
  • Summary: The Kobo Vox may be cheap, but its poor power makes it awkward and frustrating to use. While we like Kobo's ebook service, we don't like the Vox. We recommend using the Kobo app with a better tablet.
  • Pros: Decent image quality, Portable size, Kobo service is simple to use
  • Cons: Very slow performance, Unresponsive screen

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
