In the last three months, BOOX released two models in its 10.3-inch Note line to better satisfy different user needs.
Therefore, this post will explore these two great new device’s main differences. Also, Note2 is added to the contest to give a comprehensive view.
Note3: Advanced in All Aspects with Lightweight
As the latest member of the Note line, Note3 soon takes the place of Note2 and becomes the premium Note model.
Note3 out stands Note2 mostly because of its hardware and software advancement.
The octa-core processor once seen in Note2 gets upgraded in Note3 to offer more power for multitasking. Although Note3 has the same large storage of 4G RAM and 64G ROM, the improved storage and flashing memory solutions make it even close to the flagship model BOOX Max Lumi. LPDDR4X and UFS2.1 in Note3 can transfer data multiple times quicker than the LPDDR3 and eMMC in Note2.
Moreover, Note3 uses Bluetooth 5.0. So it’s more stable in connection and can transmit more data per second when compared to the Note2 with BT 4.0.
Therefore, Note3 with advanced hardware is more suitable for users who think improved speed matters.
When it comes to reading, Note3 has a front-lit A5-size display with 1872×1404 resolution and 227 dpi. Its size is excellent for showing academic materials in PDF and ebooks. Also, the adjustable front light can help users read small-to-large-format content sharply at any scene. Unlike the super large Max models, Note3 is smaller and weighs only around 375g.
In addition, the screen of Note3 is different from Note Air. Note3 has a Mobius flexible screen with AG (Anti-Glare) glass flat cover-lens, whereas Note Air has an HD Carta screen with AG glass flat cover-lens.
In conclusion, Note3 is an all-rounder device in the BOOX 10.3inch lineup.
Note Air: Slim and Ergonomic
Unlike Note3 and Note2’s conventional form factor, Note Air has a wider bezel to give extra grip on one side. The G-sensor providing auto-rotation combining the design offers a truly ergonomic experience. Also, the refreshing color combination of navy blue and orange adds a more stylish and vivid hint to the device.
When speaking of design, what makes Note Air outstanding in an array of 10.3inches is its 5.8mm ultra-slim body. Such a thickness packs a quality speaker, a specially reinforced USB type-C interface, a power button, and a lot of advanced hardware.
Moreover, advanced technology is used to build out its slim but rigid body. Note Air thus becomes a quality-made Android device that provides excellent hand feel, effortless grip and extraordinary performance.
It features some of the same essential hardware and software with Note3. Although it only has 3GB LPDDR4X RAM + 32GB eMMC ROM, which is smaller than Note3’s, it’s quite ample room for a bunch of files, ebooks, and notes.
Another huge difference between Note Air and Note3 is their screen. Note Air adopts the HD Carta screen, the upgraded version of the fourth generation of E Ink screen, to render crisp texts and reduce page refreshes’ needs.
Note2: The Best Time to Get A Discounted All-rounder Device
Is Note2 obsolete? Not at all.
Before Onyx BOOX Note3 coming out, Note2 was the most advanced Note model. It has the octa-core processor of Max3 and massive storage of 4GB+64GB. It outpaces Nova models in terms of storage and size. It weighs around 375g, balancing a large form factor and portability perfectly. Also, with Android 9.0, it outpaces most of the Android-based E Ink tablets in the market.
Users can do a lot of things on Note2.
Read pdfs, epubs, mobi, cbr and all kinds of file formats. Pinch-to-zoom seamlessly to view content clearly. Split the screen to read books and take notes.
Install third-party apps, including Kindle, Scribd, Bloomberg, Medium and Reddit.
Listen to the music with the quality dual speakers or Bluetooth earbuds.
Take down notes on custom templates. And draw with powerful tools, such as lasso, different colors and then sync works to the cloud.
From reading, note-taking to multitasking, Note2 can meet almost all needs. It’s the best time to get this advanced, versatile 10.3inch Android tablet with $70 off.
