And unlike most Android ebook readers the Kindle app actually works fairly well, albeit a bit slower than on a phone or tablet. The problem is Amazon tried the large screen Kindle experiment way too soon with the Kindle DX back in The Onyx Boox Note proves that things have changed a lot since then and that E Ink devices are more than capable of handling a variety of ereading and note-taking tasks.
I strongly feel that Amazon should start offering large screen Kindles again.
Onyx Boox Note Review. Kindle Oasis 2 Review. I strongly agree that Amazon should try again with a larger device. I will email a request…Hopefully others will. You guys are always making review under strong light.
Kindle Oasis vs Onyx Boox Note Comparison Video
Kindle app takes B grade. Sometimes it syncs, sometimes — not. So I was needed to manually select chapter in book where I stopped on my Oasis. Bottom line, for me, main disadvantage is lack of front light and as result gray screen. Compared to it Oasis is white as a snow. There is no bright light shining on the screen in the video. I can understand the lack of a frontlight being an issue for some people, especially those who are newer to ereaders and are used to having a light.
My opinion might change when I see the Likebook Note, which has a frontlight, but they still need to prove that frontlights look good on a large flexible screen.
Simple question — did you try to make video review or at least read book on this Note in the evening? I mean, when common guy return from work, turns on the lights and wants to read some book?
Are you telling me that under such conditions its screen is good for reading? I read on it in the evening all the time. Just turn on a light or a lamp. And definitely loses to Oasis. I agree. A frontlit ereader is always going to be better than a non-frontlit ereader when reading at night. So you have to hate newspapers; and their paper.
When reading at night the frontlight helps, but using frontlight to whiten the background? Yum chaska stories really need that…. Hmm, you can also print a book on paper and with fonts used in newspapers, but for some reason normal and good quality print books printed on white paper, right?
And whole point of front light and high DPI is to make reading experience on eReader as similar to reading print book as it can be. Printed paper is whitened soaking it in chlorine compoundsnot soaking it in… light. Unfortunately eink screens use exactly this suboptimal method to get some extra whiteness. As someone who mainly uses frontlight to improve whiteness i disagree. However on the Boox N96ml U use the frontlight to even be able to read on it.
The screen seems actually darker than my other devices.Password Notices Tip Got Facebook? Last edited by oranges; at PM. However, still the app google play services was impossible to be installed. Just for the information, before I wrote the problem, mine had already had the factory installed "google play store" and it had been working flawlessly.

If I put the device into the sleep mode with wifi connection turned on, the wifi is automatically turned off and it is impossible to turn on wifi again when I wake it up several minutes later, unless rebooting it. Maybe it's because of malfunctioning of power management program. I've tried fiddling with settings to no avail. Concerning installation of Play Services it will be fixed very soon.
I have reported this issue with Play Services two weeks ago, but we didn't have enough time to provide fixes immediately because production and delivery already has started. We also are working on other improvements, so please don't worry, if you see some polishing of the software is needed. We are going polish it to you complete satisfaction. Not an issue per sebut I don't know where to ask and don't particularly want to open a new thread.
I tried the same setup on the Onyx Max 2, and it works only partially. The first page will load, but then trying to follow links inside the set of files seems to take forever, and sometimes seems to not work at all.
