About this deal

This great battery life is one of the main reasons for picking up the Plus over the vanilla 3000mAh Note Air 2 version.

The tablet can even simultaneously read Audible books out loud to you and show you their text, something regular Kindles can't do (especially because they don't have speakers). Minor wishlist item: I would have liked a fingerprint reader so I could quickly turn the device on for instant note taking etc. Ho acquistato questo eBook reader in sostituzione di uno precedente e sono rimasta sbalordita dalle molteplici funzionalità.The dual speakers and microphone are also located on the top and bottom edges respectively (which transpose to the left and right edges when the tablet is rotated to landscape mode).

Unleash Creativity In Your Way Various digital tools allow you to take notes and sketch in a variety of ways. At no point when using it did it stutter or crash, which is impressive given how heavily skinned the Android operating system it runs is.For example, a color document may benefit from higher contrast, while a scanned black-and-white one could use less sharpening. The support team speak good English, however, they are not native speakers and so sometimes things can get lost in translation. Don’t be afraid to not have perfect answers we want to flag what positive work is being done and will always factor in forward-looking statements where possible. It's a simpler tablet that can't compete when it comes to app support but is still rich with features, and ultimately, feels a bit more refined from a software point of view than Onyx's E Ink alternatives. Equipped with an OTG expansion device, the maximum support is 512GB, and it is more convenient to transfer files and exchange data.

But it also plays back audiobooks and music, hooks up to a Bluetooth keyboard and works as an eye-friendly E Ink document editor in Google Docs, and gives you maximum control over everything from the screen refresh rate to the hue of the light. Sure, you can read books on it – in any one of 17 different file formats, no less – and even via the Kindle app. It feels more textured, less slippery, and more tactile than the Apple Pencil on an iPad screen or an S Pen on a Galaxy S21 screen. Going into a bit more detail, the Note Air 2 and Note Air 2 Plus (we're testing the latter), are Android E Ink tablets. I'm happy to say the tablet runs Kindle, Kobo, Libby, Nook, several comics readers, and its own PDF reader just fine; you can even split the screen between two apps if you want, for example, to take notes while reading a book.Let’s not pretend it can supply quality music – it cannot – but the tiny speaker is fine for audiobooks. It does do that, but only in a very small and specific zone… we dropped it on the floor multiple times having tried to secure it.

The ONYX BOOX Note Air 2 Plus is the newest e-book reader with a 10,3” screen with a dual touch control in a thin metal case. There is also timed automatic page turns and a split-screen view so that, for example, you can have a document on the left side of your screen and a notebook on the right. There’s something of a spectrum when it comes to e-ink tablets; from simple to smart, and the Note Air 2 Plus is the smartest of them all.The attractive green hue is further enhanced by orange accents on the rear of the device and on the front logo. Note that there’s no 4G/5G option available, so you’ll want to ensure all your books are downloaded before taking it on a journey. Perfect for a weekend away or a work trip, I noticed the main battery drain was the front light being on, so if you’re a daytime user, you can also expect to eke out even more time. Despite leaning into the tablet format, there are no volume buttons – although you can alter the audio from within the device. As for clarity, with a resolution of 1404 x 1872, the Note Air 2 Plus is crisp, sporting 227 pixels in every inch of screen (PPI), not much less than the iPad Pro (265PPI), and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra (240PPI).
