Inspect-a-gadget - Kobo Mini review!

Hello sweeties! A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely Chris on behalf of Moneysupermarket.com, he told me about a Inspect-a-gadget (more information here!) and asked me if I'd like to review a product for me, I immediately jumped at the chance! I've always loved technology so a little eReader was perfect, I adored reading as a child but lost interest in my teens. I hoped having a little eReader would help me get back into that!

So, what are the basics:

•At 134g the lightest 5" E Ink reader for the convenience of reading on the go.
•It fits in your pocket (101 x 133 x 11mm)
•The responsive touch screen makes it easy to navigate - touch and tap your way through books.

•No glass and no glare - even in direct sunlight!
•Feature-rich with Wi Fi, touch screen and customization tools to provide the best reading experience.
•The only eReader with fun, interchangeable back covers to express your style and personalise your look.
•Read comfortably, with Kobo's amazingly sharp custom font & choose from 24 font sizes and 7 styles.

•Store up to 1,000 books on this eReader.
•Shop for eBooks anywhere with built in Wi Fi.
•Access today's bestsellers, hidden gems and tons of free titles. Plus easily find Books you'll love with Kobo Picks: recommendations just for you.

I personally think that the Kobo mini is perfect for any occasion whether that's a long train, car or bus journey or whether you're just laying in bed relaxing! The product would also be very handy for holidays too as it would be great to use either on the beach or on sun-lounger around the pool.

The product is super easy to use and very easy to read on, I love that you change the font size, plus the font too! I also love that the Kobo can be easily customised too, whether you buy a case online or a snapback to change the colour of the back of your Kobo, which can be bought from WHSmiths too (here, available in various colours).

Once you've signed up and registered Kobo will frequently email you with various offers, i.e - 25% off various books.

The main thing about the device for me was being able to put my own books onto the Kobo very easily, I had already purchased some books previously and I was luckily able to put them onto the device with no problems. I have 16 books and they don't take up much space at all! Another thing I love is battery life, I've had the device around 3-4 weeks and I've only had to charge it once! 

Overall I think that the device is great! Amazing value for money and a lovely little device, perfect for any tech or book lovers out there.

Lots of love Alex xox


  1. I too took part in the MoneySupermarket Inspect a Gadget reviewer program! I was torn between this product and the Philips Camcorder- I went with the camcorder in the end as I already own a Kindle, however the size of this little beauty looks great for travelling! A lovely review!

    1. Thank-you so much! I was only told about the Kobo but I don't think a camcorder would be handy for me anyway haha.


  2. wow that looks like a nice gadget! I never read books myself (only once for a school project haha) I really don't know why I don't read books!

    And thank you so much for your sweet comment <33 If you would like to have some stickers, please send me an email with you address! I will send them to you! :D


    1. I'll get on to emailing you now lovely! xox
