Really Great!

I received the Kobo Arc as a gift, wanting an e-reader in colour that I would be able to read comics on. This product is great! It acts more like a tablet with e-reader functions than just a stand alone e-reader, with access to the internet and social media and basically all the apps on the playstore. Having all apple devices, I found the modified android OS easy to navigate and it looks really good. I only have two negative points to make about this beauty- one, it only came packaged with a wall plug in charger and I had to find my own micro usb cable to connect it to my computer. I suppose this is by design as they want you to purchase books from the kobo store, even though I had a readily available library in calibre. Two, once connected to my computer, I had to do some googling to figure out how to get the device to read on a Mac so I could transfer my epubs (eventually learning about android file transfer). Despite these little start up setbacks I really love my Kobo Arc and 64gb is more than I know what to do with. PS: After several trial and errors I found Perfect Viewer to be the ideal comic book reading app.

Not Impressed

While I really liked the product I was not impressed when after 3 months it would not take a charge anymore. I have to get a hold of Kobo to get it fixed. Looking at a tablet or Kindle to replace it.

Good balance between ebook and tablet

Neither the best ebook reader, nor the best tablet, but possible one of the ones with the best of both.

Kobo Arc

I purchased the Kobo Arc about a month ago, for a very competitive sale price. There are a few issues i.e. there doesn't seem to be a manual that is helpful re the options and how to manoeuvre through the screens. I have a Vox which is similar so that helped when experimenting. I hope it's not a fluke, but the setting indicates the battery lasts about 16 hours between charges which is very good. The screen resolution is quite good. I have loaded apps that I am interested in, and they work well. The camera is forward facing only which is not something useful to me. It comes pre-loaded with a number of apps I am not interested in, as well as the Kobo Discovery on the main screen that I would like to remove but can't (so far). I use this as an Ereader mainly and it works well for me.

Ease of Use

Very unfriendly when trying to figure out how to download books from sites other than Kobo. The package came with absolutely NO instruction manual. Thankfully my local librarian was more knowledgeable than the Kobo site or Chapters store.

Took it back

I had trouble with it the minute it was out if the box. I had trouble getting it to charge, then it wouldn't turn on. Again had trouble charging it. Finally got it charged and then the kobo app wouldn't work my book wouldn't open. I finally packed it up a returned it.

Good physical design

The tablet feels solid. Doesn't feel like its made of cheap materials. Fast processor. Switching between multiple running apps is a breeze. Screen not as sharp as expected but not terrible.

Keyboard froze

It was very disappointing to try out this KOBO Arc and find that the keyboard would freeze on certain letters and couldn't get beyond initial start up. Money was refunded but would not purchase such a product again.

Excellent product

I have a kobo vox which I, but recently i upgrade to the Arc. I have been more then impressed using this device. It downloads Google apps right out of the box so you can use it to do most anything. very powerful it runs smooth all the time. all in all I am very happy with my purchase
