Top Customer Reviews

The bezel around the top and both sides of the front is only about 0.4 inches wide with the excellent 6 inch Pearl eInk display taking up most of the front. There is a single silver button centered below the display that is used to get you back to the home screen.

There is nothing on the right of the Kobo eReader while a microSD card slot is found on the bottom of the left side. There is a microUSB port on the bottom that you can use to charge and transfer content to the eReader. The on/off slide button is found on the top right side.

There is a very small hole found towards the bottom of the back that you can use to reset the Kobo eReader Touch Edition if you ever have an issue. The back has a great quilted pattern texture to it that adds some style and feel to the device.

If this ereader would work properly I would be able to write something better. Unfortunately the reader keeps freezing and thus it is astonishingly frustrating to use. It will just not work correctly. It is so poor it will not advance pages. At the moment it is seized again and useless. It will not perform any function that it is supposed to do. It is useless and not fit for purpose. It is an enormous shame. Shall return this reader as soon as I can for a refund. It is a complete waste of time and money.

I bought this for my son who is a real bookworm. Needless to say he hasn't put it down. We can download books from any book store online which is far better than limiting yourself with a kindle
