How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Review

The GlowLight has a much nicer display than the last-gen model, but other e-readers still offer better screens. In the meantime, too, the GlowLight has lost some defining features like a microSD slot and physical page turn buttons.

Pros
  • Lightweight
  • Much-improved frontlight
  • Better display than last time
Cons
  • No more physical page buttons
  • The microSD slot has been removed
  • Frontlighting still not on par with the competition
