Upgrade to Kobo Aura One from Kobo Aura H2O?

Hey guys..

I have been thinking a long time about getting the Kobo Aura One (due to screen size, which I really really like). I have the Kobo Aura H2O from 2-3 years ago but would like to maybe upgrade.

I have read previous threads on how Kobo Aura One was having issues with uneven lighting and other problems. This was a while back though.

How are the issues with the Aura One these days? Has anyone bought one recently and found it to be OK?

Also, anyone else owned a H2O and upgraded to the One? I would love some input please if you have. Just want to know if it really is worth the jump.

Thank you so much.

The regular light on the KA1 has been good from the start. It's only the natural light that can be patchy, so if you don't care that much about it don't worry about lighting. I find the H2O soooo small when I change back to it now from the KA1.

KA1 has a bigger screen, which is nice if that's what you're after. It's also waterproof without having to worry about the flap. For those to whom it matters, it has the flush bezel. The H20 you already have is better in every other way.

Lighting on the H20, although only of a single colour tone, should be perfectly even. The supposedly improved resolution of the A1 is not apparent, (unlike the bygone Glo HD which was immediately noticeably sharper.). The touch screen on the H20 is much more responsive and accurate than the A1. The optional SD card makes the memory as large as you want it, and the battery life more than twice as long.

Thank you guys for helpful input. I caved and bought one today. I'll test it out and see if there's anything wrong with it, and if I really do like it or not. If it doesn't work I'll let it go and keep my trusty H2O. :P Otherwise, time to start selling some things to make up for my expensive purchase. Haha.
