The Onyx Boox Max Lumi 2 is probably the best 13.3-inch digital note-taking device out there. It has the latest generation E INK Carta 1250 display and an ultra-fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 662, which has 8 CPU cores. It has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which is the most ever found on an e-paper device. Android 11 is a huge draw, it will be relevant for years to come, supporting millions of paid and free apps through the Play Store. Are you going to buy the Lumi 2?
The Max Lumi 2 has a 13.3 inch E INK Carta 1250 and Mobius display with a resolution of 2200 Ã 1650 with 207 PPI. The screen is completely flush with the frame and there is a protective layer of glass, this is a similar design to the Max Lumi. You can read over the white LED lights at night with the front-lit display, and it also features a series of amber LED lights that create a warm candlelight effect. The E INK Carta 1250 is the same type of screen technology used by the second generation Kobo Elipsa, Kobo Sage and Fujitsu Quaderno. It essentially increases the clarity of the text by 30% and also reduces the latency of stylus interactions.
Onyx has developed a screen protector and attached it at the factory. The company calls it writing film, which is the same type of protection that the Supernote A6X and A5X use. It was developed to increase the resistance when writing on the glass display. We found, at least with the Supernote product, that this makes a huge difference. The Lumi 2 also comes with the Boox Pen Plus, which you get for free when you buy Good e-Reader. It’s blue and has a hexagonal design. It has a new nib that makes writing a pleasure. The pen is also magnetic and can be attached to the side of the device. The pen has a pressure sensitivity of 4,096 degrees. So the harder you press the screen, the thicker the lines will be. There is also palm rejection technology in place to prevent your hands from registering as touchscreen interactions
Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 Octo-Core CPU with a whopping 6 GB of RAM, the largest memory ever found on an E-Note. There is 128 GB of internal storage that should be enough for your PDF and e-book collection. There is no SD card to expand the storage further, but it does have access to the Onyx Boox Cloud. There are two stereo speakers that can be used to play audiobooks, podcasts, or music. It has bluetooth 5.0 which can be used for wireless headphones or an external speaker, it can also be used for things like wireless keyboards and other accessories. You can charge the Lumi 2 via the USB-C port by connecting it to your PC / MAC or a wall charger. It is powered by a respectable 4300 mAh battery that should provide a few weeks of continuous use. There is a fingerprint scanner to unlock your device.
The Lumi 2 really seems to have it all. The best specs in the world for e-notes that dramatically improve your drawing, jotting, and annotating performance. Android apps will glow quickly, not just because of the processor and memory, but also the various speed modes that are burned into the operating system. These are similar to A2 mode, but there are four different options that degrade image quality and increase performance. Onyx has also optimized apps at the software level, such as turning pages. This applies to Amazon Kindle, Evernote, Onenote and WPS.
The Lumi can be pre-ordered in the Good e-Reader Store. It comes with a free case and pen and is priced at $ 879.99.
