8 Reasons For for Choosing the Kobo Aura H2O

1440 X 1080 Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Kobo Aura H2O has a display resolution of 1440 x 1080 pixels pixels, but the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 5th Gen and the Kobo Aura have a display resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels, the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 6th Gen only has a display resolution of 800 x 600 pixels and the Pocketbook Touch Lux 3 only has a display resolution of 1024 x 758 pixels. More ...

'Display Resolution' denotes how many pixels make up the display of the e-reader.

A larger display resolution means that the text will be sharper and clearer, making it easier to read books on the device, and reducing the chances of eye-strain after long sessions.

Bigger Diagonal

The Kobo Aura H2O has a diagonal of 6.8, but the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 5th Gen, the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 6th Gen, the Kobo Aura and the Pocketbook Touch Lux 3 are all only 6" E-book readers (0.8" smaller). More ...

'Diagonal' denotes the size of the e-reader, measured in inches from the top-left to bottom-right corner.

A larger size means that there is more real estate on the e-reader to display books, and the device can display text at a larger font size if needed.

Backlight Display

The Kobo Aura H2O has a backlight display (as do the Kobo Aura and the Pocketbook Touch Lux 3), however the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 5th Gen and the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 6th Gen do not have this feature. More ...

'Backlight Display' denotes whether the E-book reader has a light placed behind the screen, meaning it can be read at night or in low-light conditions.

A Lot Bigger Internal Storage Capacity

The Kobo Aura H2O has an internal storage capacity of 8, whereas the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 5th Gen is only a 2GB internal storage capacity E-book reader (6GB smaller) and the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 6th Gen, the Kobo Aura and the Pocketbook Touch Lux 3 are all only 4GB internal storage capacity E-book readers (4GB smaller). More ...

'Internal Storage Capacity' denotes how much space the device has to store books and other media, measured in megabytes (Mb).

A larger internal storage capacity means the e-reader can hold more books and media at once.

Better Kagoo Score

The Kobo Aura H2O has received a Kagoo Score of 90, however the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 5th Gen scored 87, the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite - 6th Gen scored 88, the Kobo Aura scored 88 and the Pocketbook Touch Lux 3 scored 82.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this E-book reader and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.
