The Kobo Vox was my introduction to the world of ereaders /tablets, so I have nothing to compare with, BUT, I have found it to be an absolutely great piece of kit. It was a gift so I had no preconceptions about what I wanted to use it for but the functions I have used have met all my needs.

The price was extremely low considering the Kindle costs more and does less. Not only can it hold all your books but it is Wi-Fi enable allowing you to surf the net and check social media eg Facebook and Twitter. With the Android operating system you also have access to the Android/Google Store so you can download Apps, I even managed to download a Kindle App so i could get .. Read the complete review
