The Kobo Aura H20 is coming out this October, but Good e-Reader has an early release edition and have been extensively reviewing it. Today, we look at how this e-reader performs in direct sunlight.
Most of the times with smartphones and tablets you will inevitably be reading outdoors in the sun. Direct sunlight does not play nice with LCD screens and you have to either find a good angle or find a spot of shade. E-Paper was designed to provide a glare free experience, but how well does it hold up in real world conditions?

People often gravitate towards seven inch tablets because of how easy they are transported around. Quite often you will find yourself throwing it in your bag or backpack for a day out and inevitably you will use it while commuting or sitting outside in the sun. Today, we conduct an extensive daytime reading test to see how the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook performs in direct sunlight.
The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook are two tablets that are exclusively geared towards reading. Today, we look at the core differences between the two devices to give you a sense on their overall capabilities.
Amazon tends to use a heavily skinned version of Android called Mojito. You cannot really establish live wallpapers or setup widgets on your home screen. The HDX was designed to integrate completely with the entire Amazon ecosystem, such as movies, television shows, apps and books.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook on the other hand is running Kitkat, and new Android updates should occur very quickly. Unlike prior Nook tablets, this one has two cameras and better sound. It also has Google Play to access new content, so you can do business with other bookstores.
The prime motivation behind this Good e-Reader comparison is to give you a sense on how the UI is all laid out, how eBooks look and what type of functionality you get with PDF files. We also demonstrate how the entire ecosystems perform, from a Canadian point of view.
