The Kobo Aura One is Kobo’s biggest and best ereader, but according to some owners this ereader is not without its problems.
Several owners have reported a battery issue, and now we have a report of a problem with the sleepcover.
Jay Summet posted the following video on Youtube where he shows the Aura One displaying baffling behavior with its sleepcover.
At least one of the problems shown in the video isn’t really a problem; the nuisance of the metal table putting the Aura One to sleep is a design issue shared by all devices with sleepcovers (I’ve seen in on Kindles, Android tablets, etc).
But the issue with the Aura One not going to sleep when the cover is closed, now that could be serious – if the defect can be replicated by other Aura One owners. I have so far found only this one complaint, so at this point we don’t know whether this is a one-of-a-kind fluke or a real problem.
Have you had any issues with the sleepcover on your Kobo Aura One?
