The Kobo Aura and Kobo Glo HD both have an illuminated screen. This allows you to read in the dark or other low-light conditions. The source of “comfortlight” as Kobo likes to call it is 5 LED lights on the bottom of the bezel that project light upwards. Today, we give you a sense on how these two e-readers perform.
Both of these e-readers have innovative ways to control the brightness of the screen. The Kobo Aura allows you to drag two fingers down on the center of the screen to adjust the minimum and maximum brightness levels. The Glo HD on the other hand recognizes a single finger dragging down on the left-hand side to adjust the brightness. These two things are certainly easier than constantly having to access the light icon on the settings menu.
