The Edition 2 features a six inch E-Ink Carta display with a resolution of 1024 X 768 and 212 PPI. These specs make it a very basic e-reader by 2016 standards and there are plenty of similarly priced alternatives on the market, such as the Kindle Paperwhite that has a resolution of 1430×1080 and 300 PPI.
Kobo e-readers have more advanced options than the Kindle. There is a greater amount of freedom to augment the fonts via slider bars and many advanced options to further refine the e-book experience. Additionally, you can load in your own fonts on the Kobo, something you cannot do with the Kindle.
