It is also possible to install KOReader on the Kobo Aura H2O to read PDF documents. Many PDF documents can be read comfortably in landscape mode, but a larger screen offers more versatility. After using the Kobo Aura H20 below are my impressions:
- The Aura H20’s screen is darker than the Aura One and Forma. Also, the text is not as dark and clear as you get on other Kobo e-readers. It is not a bad screen, and most readers won’t tell the difference unless the screen is compared side-to-side to, for example, the Kobo Forma. The Aura H20’s slightly lower resolution shouldn’t make this marked difference in screen quality.
- The touch screen on the Aura H20 is smooth and precise; the responsiveness also confirmed to me that the Aura One’s touch screen is slightly off. I would even say touch input is smoother in comparison to the Kobo Forma.
- The Aura H20 performs slightly better than the Forma. The lower resolution might be a reason for better performance.
- I find 6.8-inches to be the ideal size for e-books. As stated, the regular 6-inches feels cramped, and 7.8-inches is too large for one-handed reading.
