If not the first, surely the second thought that comes to mind when we see an e-ink tablet or e-reader in a shop window or in someone’s hands is: does it still make sense? We will find out with our test
Before jumping to conclusions, you should know that the e-ink tablet market is in turmoil and that ONYX, a Chinese company, one of the few in circulation that still believes in this sector, has benefited from a lot of interest. The BOOX Note Air 2 Plus is basically an Android e-ink device, with good customization.
What does an e-ink device with an Android operating system do? It’s a useful extension of an e-reader’s performance, provided its limits are kept in mind, starting with the display which, being black and white, imposes a decisive choice between the downloadable apps. In short, you cannot expect to use the BOOX Note Air 2 Plus, nor other e-readers, to entertain adults and children with games or other similar content.
Where it excels, however, is in the utterly satisfying writing experience, which closely resembles a pencil, even in the hiss that comes out as you write: everything hints at writing with a graphite stylus on a sheet of paper. Partly thanks to the pen that has 4,096 pressure levels and does not need to be charged, but also thanks to the display. The screen is actually 10.3 inches, with a resolution of 1872×1404 and sturdy metal frames. The total weight is 445 grams, it never poses a problem, you never feel embarrassed, the feeling is indeed that you have something extremely solid and well made in your hands. Even if it does not have the importance it can have in a classic smartphone or tablet, in the ONYX BOOX Note Air 2 Plus we find a respectable processor. It is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662, an octa-core that never gets into trouble thanks to the 64 gigabytes of storage memory and 4 GB of RAM.
