About this deal

The storage/files app shows the most commonly used folders of the home directory; Documents, Images, Download, Bluetooth, Music, Videos, APK and Font. Personally, my preference is for a yellow-toned display, but the colder tones proved handy for reading outdoors, or in other brightly lit areas. There’s a handy home-baked BooxDrop app built in that makes it a doddle to drag-and-drop files onto the Note Air 2 from a computer, while scribbled notes can be turned into text and/or sent to other devices and into other productivity apps as PNG or PDF files. The writing experience on the NA2+ is very nice, but (in my opinion) is not quite as pleasant as it is on other devices, such as the Supernote, reMarkable 2 and Kindle Scribe. Today, we have millions of users a month from around the world, and assess more than 1,000 products a year.

You want a solid e-reader that has some tablet capabilities The Onyx Boox Note Air 2 Plus is a fantastic e-reader, whose bundled stylus means you can take notes and doodle out of the box. As expected with an e-ink display, the reading experience is fabulous (contrast, viewing angles, minimum reflections), especially outdoors. The dual speakers and microphone are also located on the top and bottom edges respectively (which transpose to the left and right edges when the tablet is rotated to landscape mode). Flipping through a 172-page PDF with the backlight on half brightness didn't reduce the battery by even 1%.The Note Air 2 runs Android 11 on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor, up from a 636 on last year's unit. Others say that the UI is very ergonomic but not the most user friendly until you are used to it, it takes a little getting used to, and there's quite a lot of setting up to do. The Note Air 2 Plus model is based on the Android 11 operating system and allows you to install and use various third-party apps, which significantly expand the possibilities of using the device.

Onyx’s notetaking software is powerful, with support for layers, text, image attachments and even optical character recognition (OCR), though it is less intuitive than that of ReMarkable. Das Gerät an sich ist gut bedienbar (ja, es ist langsamer als ein normales Tablet, aber es ist auch ein e-Ink Display und auch augenschonende und lange Betriebszeit optimiert). It balances decently well in one hand, but is a bit too heavy to hold like that for extended periods. Sure, you could use it without doing so, but if you use productivity apps such as Evernote, OneNote, Dropbox or Notion, then you’ll want to take advantage of the Note Air 2’s abilities.The body is made of aluminum alloy, with an ingenious color design, improved texture, light and thin, and insists on perfect corner details. Yet another strength of the Onyx platform is that you can read in whatever app you prefer, including the Kindle app. In terms of storage, the 64GB offering was more than enough for my needs, with plenty of space remaining even after downloading the 1,369-page behemoth that is Stephen King’s IT. As well as offering protection, the case can also be used to prop up the e-reader, which proved rather handy for reading on the train.
