Barnes & Noble NOOK HD+ Review
Sticking with our normal routine, which primarily consists of surfing the web, sending emails, and listening to music, the NOOK HD+’s battery is able to provide us with a consistent day of juice – with a bit to spare for the next day. Still, it’s probably a wise idea to charge it up nightly to be at a good tally in the morning. Also, there’s no light sensor with this one, which means you’ll need to manually change the brightness setting of the display.


Staring deeply at the $270 price of the 16GB base model of the NOOK HD+ ($300 for the 32GB version), there’s no arguing that their intent is to keep Amazon itching with anticipation. Rightfully so, they’re able to do just that, as the NOOK HD+ has the more detailed display of the two – while also being lighter as well. However, it’s missing out on several key features to make it an instant buy over other highly-prized full tablet offerings on the market. Therefore, if you’re all about the reading aspect, then you’ll undoubtedly take into agreement to what the NOOK HD+ has to offer with its ecosystem. Beyond that, the Google Nexus 10 still continues to offer the most balanced set of features and hardware to make it the more compelling tablet – and better long term investment as well.

Software version of the review unit: 2.0.4
