I'll have a go tomorrow. TBH, front light temperature/font weight is fixed on the pw2, not so on the Aura One. So not sure what it will achieve.

copy from the "just preordered aura one" thread

Sorry, I don't know how to give a link to just one post in a thread, and hadn't noticed this new thread, so I copy here most of the post of my first impressions

It will feel strange without the patches though.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<version value="10.0.85385-DL.20140425" name="hobbes"/>

F/W version 3.20.6894 (2483e14f7a, 28/06/2016)

dictionaries: (initial weight is my kobo Glo HD, kept at 3.15.0 for dictionaries
French: 6.7 Mo => 3.5 Mo!
Deutsch: 6.5 => 4.7
English: 6.7 => 7.1
Spanish: 6.2 => 6.8
Italian: 9.3 => 2.6
the translation dictionaries for same languages unchanged

Menus
As said in one of the reviews, the menus are a mix of French and untranslated English. I'm adjusting parameters and "ťconomie d'ťnergie et confidentialitť" for instance doesn't make sense: there is nothing about confidentiality.

Also the screen turns violently pink without rhyme or reason - I'll turn anything automatic off.

I just noticed I have a June F/W, although the kobo apparently upgraded when I initialized it.

Just hope the light and menus will improve with a quick upgrade. While waiting for this I'll download just a few books and won't modify dictionaries or apply patches.

I love my Kindle Voyage. I was lucky enough to get one with a perfect screen (and I'm VERY picky!) I plan to use my Kobo Aura One mostly at home and my Voyage for travel.

Well we are two very picky folk, although seeing we are shelving out big money, good! Personally I give up after two Voyages (and one H2O).

I might give up all together after reading on my Aura One.

I sent back two Oasis (Oases??). Screen was blotchy and yellow. I was very disappointed. Sent back one H2O for connectivity reasons. I have high hopes for the Aura One! Looks beautiful!

I am also disastrously picky and the Oasis for me was had such terrible lighting that reading on it was a real distracting chore. Which was a shame as I loved the weight of device and thought it was a pretty neat bit of tech... but it looks like Kobo has hit this one out of the park! Maybe this is the One indeed - one Ereader to replace them all, one Ereader to bind them...!

One thing I loved about the Voyage was the text on it looked like it was floating, really popped out. Wasn't on the Oasis. Wonder if the Kobo is the same? Glad to hear that a bigger screen means more immersive reading - music to my ears!

According to tracking info my device hasn't even been scanned at the post office yet, even though I got an email confirming it being shipped yesterday... grrrrrrrrr!!!
