display works very well under direct sunlight for visibility. 4 GB
provides ample space for a large library of ebooks and reading material and a single charge is about 2 months of battery life.
The device has support for most of the popular languages
and almost every ebook format out there. The size and compactness
of the Kobo Touch 2.0 is its main advantage for extra portability, but the weight could be argued about a little, pitching in at 185g.
KOBO GLO HD
Straight away the HD display
from this kobo device got our attention. With a pixel rate of 300 per inch
, the Kobo Glo HD delivers a more authentic book like display with customizable fonts, sizes and margins
. Similar in size to the Kobo Touch 2.0 ereader, the device holds its own for 2 months on a single charge

as Kobo Touch 2.0 and Kobo Glo HD, the device supports pretty much every ebooks format in the market.
WHICH KOBO EREADER IS BETTER?
While we couldn’t really put any of the devices bow down to each other in terms of features and comparisons, the features and functionalities offered by each of them will suit readers of the particular kind.
Users looking for an ereader to take wherever they want with them, not having to worry too much about the weight and heave on their pockets
of carrying a device should opt for the Kobo Touch 2.0 or Kobo Glo HD
. Both devices offer excellent portability with handy features with their compact size. Kobo Glo HD’s sharp display sustains more pressure under sunlight and would be a preferable pick for people looking to read outdoors more often. If you are an intent reader indoors, the Kobo Touch 2.0 will garner the same features for you, but with a lower price tag.
The Kobo Aura H20 is a fantastic ereader in almost every aspect, and will favor the adventurous ones who like to travel or hike a lot with its water and dust resistance. The larger and higher resolution display is a treat to read into, but that also adds a few extra grams to the cause.
