Product Review Kobo Arc7
I was able to return the eMatic Tablet without a hassle *phew*.
I did a wee bit of research last night and thought I’d try the Kobo Arc7.
So far I like it very much but I haven’t had a lot of time to play with it since we had company for the evening.
The screen is clearer and crisper, even with the protective piece of plastic still in place. It has much more available storage, it transferred the apps from the eMatic over since it’s an Android as well.
It is a little heavier than the eMatic but I can live with that.
I am typing the next day now, lol.
I think the Arc7 will be a keeper for sure.
The screen is very easy on the eyes. I don’t think that the visually impaired will have a huge problem reading text on this.
The pictures are clean and crisp. Text is very clear..
The only issue I seem to be having so far is with my stylus, which was not included. That could be because it’s a dollar store find though so I’ll probably splurge on one designed for editing and stuff with my next pay cheque.
easy on the eyes screen
pictures clear and crisp
text is very clear
carries over apps from other android devices
16 gig version gives more than enough storage space for extra apps above what’s already installed
large key touch screen keyboard
cam and voice capable (Skype pre-installed)
Comes with wall charger which is convertible to European if you have the disks for European electricity
Carried over my book shelves from my Kobo Mini but didn’t populate them
A little heavier than I thought
No instruction manual aside from instructions on how to startNo colour other than black
Not sure how it works with a proper stylus but will find out in the net couple of weeks.
Over all I am very pleased with my purchase. Considering how happy I have been with my Kobo ereaders over the last few years that isn’t a surprise. I should have probably gone with Kobo in the first place maybe?
