Overall, the Kobo Forma receives mixed reviews. Many users appreciate its lightweight design, large screen, and water resistance, making it a strong contender for best e-reader alongside the Kindle Oasis. However, some users have experienced issues with page turning and inconsistent orientation sensors. The Kobo ecosystem also lacks support for read-wise and has a less integrated bookstore compared to Amazon. The device is recommended for epub reading and has a custom application for manga reading. The 8GB variant may not be suitable for users with a large library. The PDF reading experience is generally positive, but the device's response time can make highlighting difficult.
