Review: Onyx Boox T68 Lynx

I’ve already posted a video review of the Onyx Boox T68 Lynx, along with several individual app reviews, so I figure it’s time to get the written review finished. I’ve been stalling waiting for a software update to fix some of the bugs that I’ve experienced while using the T68, and the first update came […]

Kobo Aura HD vs Onyx Boox T68 Lynx Comparison Review (Video)

The Kobo Aura HD and Onyx Boox T68 are the only two ebook readers currently available that feature E Ink’s 6.8-inch display, so a comparison review between them is needed to determine which device is better. Unfortunately that’s not going to happen. I can’t definitively say that one is better than the other. Each device […]

PDF is a popular format, and there’s always a number of people that want to know how well E Ink ebook readers handle PDFs. Tablets like the iPad are among the best options for PDFs, but there are some E Ink ebook readers that do a fair job. And since most people don’t have $1200 […]

Google Play Books App Review on Onyx Boox T68 (Video)

I’ve been testing a bunch of different Android reading apps on the Onyx Boox T68 Lynx. The Play Books app is up for review this time around. At first the app seemed to work okay, but the more I use it the more it continues to crash. Too bad because all the Play Books’ features […]

Kobo App Onyx Boox t68

Onyx Boox T68 Lynx Kobo App Review (Video)

As far as third party reading apps go, the Kobo Android app fairs better than most on the Onyx Boox T68. The number one thing is there’s no animated page transitions like with the Kindle and Google Play Books apps. This results in much smother and faster page turns. Ghosting and afterimages are less of […]

Comixology Android App Review on Onyx Boox T68 (Video)

I wanted to see if the new Onyx Boox T68 Lynx could pull off being an E Ink comic reader using the Comixology app for Android. The app is of course designed for Android tablets and phones with LCD screens, so you never really know what to expect on an E Ink screen. For the […]

Feedly Onyx Boox

Onyx Boox T68 Feedly RSS App Review (Video)

One of the Android apps that I wanted to try on the Onyx Boox T68 is Feedly, an RSS news reader app. Most ebook readers, including the Kindle Paperwhite, Nook Touch and Kobo eReaders, don’t support reading RSS feeds natively, and using their web browsers for such is too troublesome. You can setup Calibre to […]

Onyx Boox T68 Kindle App Review (Video)

So one of the big questions with the Onyx Boox T68 ebook reader is if the Kindle for Android app works on it or not. This is important because it would make it one of the only non-Kindle E Ink ereaders to officially support Kindle ebooks out of the box, with no hacking required. The […]

Today I put together several video reviews of the Onyx Boox T68 Lynx ebook reader, a new 6.8-inch ereader that runs Android 4.0 and sells on Amazon for $199. The Boox T68 is one of the first E Ink ebook readers to run Android and come with Google Play onboard to install Android apps. Since […]

Comparison Review: Kindle Fire HDX vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 (Video)

Recently I posted a review of the new 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 4, and while I was at it I wanted to post a comparison review between it and the 7-inch Kindle Fire HDX to detail some of the differences between them. Both are among the top brands for Android tablets, and both are very […]
