Boox Poke3 6" Reviews
You're using it wrong
These things are awesome. Go into the play store and get the ebook apps you can use all ebook apps on 1 device plus all audio book apps. For library books in the UNITED States use the Libby app in the store. This eliminates the need for owning multiple E-readers by having everything in one place. I find it easier to use the apps from the android store than the ones already on the boox. I hope this helps I had the original poke pro that was great back in the day and I currently own this one because I prefer the 6 inch over the bigger ones.
Unsuitable for serious use
The user interface is unsuitable for serious use. Among other problems, it lists the names of books by their filename. You cannot see or sort them by title or author. Note, too, that the 32GB of storage has only 22GB of free space. I returned it.
I Love it
I bought a Kobo Clara when my library stopped supporting Overdrive and Libby and went to Cloud biblioteca. The Clara did permit me to download library books but only going through my computer. The Poke 3 permits me to download library books directly into the app on the reader as well as supports the Kindle and Kobo apps, and any other app one might find in the Google Play Store.
So far so good
I looked at several ebook readers before deciding on the Poke3. But this one and one other were the only ones I could find that were based on an Android OS. The majority of my ebooks come from Google Play Books, so Android was a must for me. Plus, that makes it easier to get books onto the reader. Google Play Books works fine on it, and the reader is easy on the eyes, once I got the lighting set up to my liking. I can read it in bright sunlight and it looks great. The page turning is quick and not distracting in any way, so I'm happy with this purchase. But I only use it as an ebook reader. I haven't loaded any other apps on it, and I wouldn't recommend that. When using the Play Store to look for books, or when using other functions (settings, etc) it has a tendency to flash, and change screens more slowly, so I don't think it would be very good as a tablet. But as a reader, it's great. Small, lightweight, and easy on the eyes. I can't really comment too much on the battery at this point, as I haven't had it very long, but it seems to only use about 1-2% per hour when reading, at least at my current settings - lights on, bluetooth and wi-fi off. The only reason for the one star reduction is the difficulty in setup. It takes some time to get it set up to preferences, as the manual is not great, and it's different from any other Android device I've ever used in several ways. So there was a lot of hunting for the settings that I wanted, and figuring out what was what.
Very happy with the Poke 3
I have been a long time Nook user. The fact that I could sideload epubs was enough to use that over the Kindle. But the sideloading needed a PC. That Workflow got old real fast. If I could have found a way to get my books over to the Nook using wifi, I'd never have looked elsewhere. I switched to the Kobo Clara which had two fantastic features. It had a terrific display and reading library books couldn't get any simpler. Plus I could sideload other books using a browser. Almost perfect. And then I discovered Poke 3. A full Android tablet with the same crisp display as the Clara. That allowed me to use the Nook, Kindle, Koreader and it's own native reader. I can use Solid Explorer to sideload books from my phone or PC. I can use Folder Sync to sync my ebooks from my NAS. The Workflow is just fantastic. Plus with a USB-C, one less charger to carry. I'm thoroughly enjoying my Poke 3. Well worth the $70 extra I paid over the Clara. There are however two drawbacks. First reading library books is significantly worse than in the Clara. Clara uses its own native reader for library books. And none of the myriad book readers like Moon come close to the features. The Poke's native reader can't deDRM to read library books. The second drawback is that it took a bit of learning curve to figure out how to set it up. There are some excellent videos on My Deep Guide YouTube channel without which I'd perhaps have returned the Poke 3. Yiu really can't go wrong with either the Clara or the Poke 3. But of you can put up with the learning curve, I'd go with the latter. But if library books are your main source of reading, the Clara may be a better choice.
