Boox Leaf2 Reviews

Great eReader

By Susie
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2023-07-10

Great eReader! I can read books from all of my subscription services which is exactly why I bought it. It is a bit slow, for the price I expected the page turns, boot up and ap switches to be much faster, but overall it's was a good buy.

Good luck!

It was great for six weeks until it failed to charge. I followed the instructions to unbrick to no avail. Fifteen emails to support over two weeks, many of them repeating the same useless instructions, was a waste of time. Any reputable company would have issued an RMA for repair or replacement. I'll never deal with this company again,

Good Idea

It can download apps and use them to read Kindle books and public library books in different formats. Set up is very difficult, which is why it doesn't get 5 stars. Works well once you get it set up.

Not Worth the Inconsistent User Experience

By Larry

I started looking for Kindle alternatives when Amazon announced the end of subscription services. I've been using Reuters on the Kindle and my breakfast newspaper for quite a while, and the Washington Post before that. So it was obvious that I needed to look for an Android solution -- which would also allow me to get eBooks from other sources. The Leaf 2 seemed like a good choice, and it had good reviews. One attraction was the Oasis-like page turn buttons. But the Devil is in the details, and there are alot of details stashed around the Leaf 2. Most of my dissatisfaction centers around those page turn keys -- which are are actually repurposed volume up/down keys. That means you can swap function assignments in some applications (but not others). So you an make the Kindle app use those keys, but if you accidentally tap the screen (old Kindle habit) for page forward or back, you see the volume control pop up on the screen. In practice, the means that you might use those two keys as page turn keys for one or two apps, but you'd have to use the normal screen taps for others. Bottom line: Not worth the effort. There is already enough fiddly stuff to make this eReader work in both the Kindle/Nook domains and in the general Android Domain. I anticipate returning it and looking for a eReader that have a more uniform application experience.

I use it everyday!

If you're looking for an e-reader that you can actually read on it and get books from different resources, this is the one to go! The price is relatively low comparing with other boox models. And since I don't really have the need of writing on it, this one is the perfect device for me!

Great Android e-reader to play around

By Rachel

This is my first Android e-reader and it's lot of fun to play around with. I love having all the different applications available to me. It's also very customizable, especially if you're willing to invest the time. I use MoonReader as my primary e-reader app, and Einkbro is a great e-ink browser for when I don't want to use my phone. I will say there is some configuration you will have to do and there is a slight learning curve. If that scares you, this might not be the right e-reader. Or, if you JUST want to read books and don't think you will need to browse the web or do anything else, a Kindle or a Kobo might be better since those pretty much work out of the box.

The perfect e reader for my needs

Works as I expected. Runs real well using the native reader and also kindle app. Having the button on the sides allows you to skip the animations on the kindle app. Also works perfectly for my manga using Tachiyomi.

Great until the battery died

By Christopher

It was a four star, maybe 4.5, device. A bit of a pain to get set up, but after that it was awesome. A single device that offers e ink and compatibility with every eBook system? What's not to like? Then the battery ran down. Plugged it in to seven different chargers, held down buttons, poured through the internet. It's dead. What's worse, Onyx hasn't responded to a help request. Pretty hard to recommend a single use device with no support and a hefty price tag.
