- Big footprint
- Software still lacking
The screen of Kobo Aura HD is great, but the frame is made from a very cheap plastic. It is absolutely undurable and even makes CRACK-sound if you hold it in your hands. This "ergonomic" frame absolutely doesn`t make sense, because in most cases you use device with the case.If you look at the picture, you can see, that the frame is not solid and has two parts. If you carry your e-reader with you all the time, it is better not to buy Kobo Aura, because the frame was not designed for this and it is falling apart then you carry it in your backpack. There are also no quality accessaries. Most of cases are made from cheap textile and you have to replace them every quarter.Company was rushing for the competition, rather then for the quality.Hopefully they will hire more professional designer for the next model.
