Google Play Magazines and Zinio magazines are a pleasure to view and even the typically tiny text in magazine articles is readable without zooming, which is quite a feat on a small screen.

Honestly, the results are quite similar to last year’s model, as well as the original – meaning it produces sharp details, natural colors, and proper exposure.
