00:00Hey hey, guys, JB here, excited
00:02you're with me and having some fun.
00:04As always this community morning
00:05channel, videos every day,
00:07to have some fun and put some great
00:09energy out there. And today we are
00:11going to get into the next part of
00:12this challenge.
00:13As you know, yesterday I gave you
00:15six things on why you should buy
00:17the Onyx Boox Note Air
00:19or kind of the Lumi, kind of the
00:21same device, right?
00:22Today, I'm going to give you six
00:24reasons to buy the reMarkable 2.
00:25So it's the opposite argument.
00:27All right. So as we get into this
00:29today, I think it's really important
00:30to understand that this is really
00:32personal preference and the things
00:35that you want. Not one of these
00:36devices is not so much better than
00:38the other one. It's all about
00:40use case and I think that's really
00:42critical because, boy, in the
00:43comments yesterday, I mean, it was
00:45great. We had over four thousand
00:46views. But, man, there was like a
00:48war with some of those comments and
00:50there's like the Onyx team and the
00:51reMarkable team. And the truth is,
00:52these are just devices and each
00:54one isn't better than one or the
00:56other and I know you're spending
00:57your hard-earned money on it and you
00:59want your device to be better than
01:00the other but there each have
01:02different qualities.
01:03Like I said yesterday, I gave you
01:04six reasons to buy the Onyx
01:06Boox Note Air. Great device,
01:08does different things, but today
01:10it's about the reMarkable 2.
01:12So let's get into it.
01:13So the first thing I'm going to tell
01:14you about the reMarkable 2
01:16is that the form
01:18factor or speed at
01:20which it operates is so
01:23superior than the Onyx Boox Note
01:24Air. When I go to start the
01:25Onyx Boox Note Air, look, I'm a very
01:28impatient person and I have to
01:29hold this power button down
01:32and then it takes, I mean,
01:33literally, it takes,
01:35I don't know, one thousand one, one
01:37thousand two, one thousand three,
01:38one thousand four, one thousand
01:40five, one thousand six, one thousand
01:42seven, one thousand eight.
01:43It's still loading, right, where
01:45the reMarkable is up and ready to
01:46go. So if you are in a meeting
01:48situation, there it goes, boom, and
01:50it's still loading, right?
01:51It's still loading.
01:53So it's still loading, still
01:54loading. So that took some time,
01:56okay. So if you're in a meeting
01:58situation, you want something to
01:59happen fast, you just press this
02:00button, boom, the reMarkable is
02:02on and ready to go.
02:03So I think one of the things
02:05that we can discuss right away is
02:07speed, right?
02:08The speed of the device, the
02:10reMarkable 2 is faster turning on.
02:12It just operates a little bit
02:14better. The second thing that I want
02:16to talk about is the stylus and
02:18the form factor.
02:19The stylus of this thing is
02:20terrible. Some people like it.
02:22It sticks. I don't even have it.
02:23It's in the other room.
02:24I use this Staedtler.
02:26I actually upgraded the stylus and
02:28the case, I can't stand.
02:29When it comes to this device,
02:32I mean, come on.
02:33You got to admit, even if you're an
02:34Onyx person, this thing is a
02:36sexy beast.
02:37I mean, they have done a great job
02:39with the hardware.
02:40I know their shipping schedule's
02:41been rough.
02:42This just feels quality.
02:44I mean, it is just a quality,
02:46quality device, the
02:48aluminum on the outside or whatever
02:50this is, I believe it's aluminum.
02:52The face of it, the way
02:54it works, it's a piece of art.
02:56I mean, I honestly feel like it's a
02:57piece of art. When you walk into a
02:59meeting room, people are both going
03:01to look at both these things, what
03:02are you using?
03:03Those are cool devices.
03:04And yeah, this has some cool color
03:06to it. It's got a nice blue color
03:08to it. They did a good job, but
03:10man, it doesn't compete to this
03:12form factor.
03:13Now, that's a personal opinion
03:15and maybe you like this better in
03:17the little cheap case and the cheap
03:18pen that comes with it but to me,
03:20the marker pen with the eraser,
03:22the feel of it, the heft of
03:24it, the way the magnet sticks,
03:26the reMarkable is far superior
03:28in that way, okay, so
03:30that's step two.
03:33Second, the next thing is the ease
03:34of use, right.
03:36So one of the things with Boox is
03:38if you're somebody that is into
03:39reading manuals and trying
03:41to figure out how to get Google Play
03:43to work and really
03:45which apps work and which don't,
03:46which apps work, and, you know, we
03:48are workflow.
03:51That's a good device for you.
03:52If you're somebody who just wants to
03:53pick up a device and start writing
03:54on it and start taking notes,
03:57then the reMarkable is better.
03:58Again, neither one is better
04:00than the other. It just is what it
04:01is. The reMarkable is faster,
04:03easier to use.
04:05It just works, right, and
04:07that's the thing where the Onyx out
04:08of the box, they put a note in it
04:10how you got to get on a Google Play.
04:12You've got to register the device.
04:14It's got to be approved by Google.
04:16It's just step after step after
04:18step. There's a learning curve with
04:19all their devices.
04:20Again, not bad but if you're
04:22somebody that doesn't have the
04:23attention span and just wants to get
04:25in and start using device, you turn
04:27this thing on, you put some folders
04:29together, the reMarkable 2, you're
04:30ready to go.
04:32The fourth thing, you already have
04:33an iPad or a Samsung
04:36tablet or some other multiple
04:38function device.
04:39So yesterday when I gave you the six
04:41reasons, one of the key things about
04:43this was apps, okay.
04:44So you've heard me say it before on
04:46the show. If you've never heard me,
04:48make sure you watch some of the
04:49videos and would love to have you
04:50like this video if you like to
04:51comment and of course, subscribe,
04:53but if you've ever heard me
04:54talk about this is that I
04:56already have an iPad, so
04:58I don't need all this functionality.
05:01It's not to say you don't, right?
05:02I'm just saying I don't and if
05:04somebody has an iPad or a Samsung
05:06tablet or Google Pixel Book that
05:08they use for a lot of things and
05:09they just need a note taker, then
05:12this is their device.
05:13They're going to pick it up and they
05:14are going to use it just for notes
05:16and they're going to grab their iPad.
05:17Personally, that's my
05:19pretty much standard workflow
05:22but I'm using this
05:24Papyr device more than anything
05:26right now because of collaboration
05:27for another video.
05:28This is between these two devices,
05:30right. So if you are,
05:34if you are somebody that
05:36just needs a note taker and you
05:37already have an iPad and you love
05:39that or you already have a Samsung
05:40tablet and you love that,
05:42well then, you just maybe want the
05:44note taker and people say, oh, it
05:46costs so much money for a note
05:47taker. It's a piece of art,
05:48right, and again, if you're
05:50complaining about the price and
05:52again, this is nothing towards
05:53anybody but then it probably isn't
05:55for you, right?
05:56And that's the same thing like
05:58a Ferrari versus a Chevy.
06:00If you're complaining about the
06:01price of the Ferrari, then maybe
06:02that Ferrari isn't for you and
06:04you've got to figure out what is for
06:06you and I think that's why the Onyx
06:08can be a great product for people
06:09that are budget conscious and don't
06:11want to buy the iPad and all those
06:12other devices.
06:13It works great and there's nothing
06:15wrong with that.
06:16Then nobody should take any of this
06:17stuff personally. These are just
06:18devices and where you are in your
06:20life and what you're working on and
06:22the things you're doing, right.
06:23But as far as another reason,
06:25number four is if you already have
06:27an iPad or you already have a
06:29Samsung tablet or you already have
06:30another tablet, there's no reason to
06:32get the Onyx, just get the
06:33reMarkable and it will be your note
06:35taker. The fifth thing, this
06:37is, oh my gosh, controversy here,
06:40So one of the big thing in the
06:42comments is there's people that are
06:43saying, I just want a device this
06:45I'm a writer. I just want to grab
06:47it. I don't want all this browser
06:48and stuff on there and other people
06:50are saying, well, just don't utilize
06:51it but there is something to that
06:53argument. When you look, you got all
06:55this other functionality down the
06:56left side, you can take it away but
06:58there's a lot of stuff happening
07:00here. When you pick up the
07:01reMarkable, it is distraction-free.
07:03It's meant to be used just to kind
07:05of mind map,
07:07think things through, and that's
07:09really the key thing and I think
07:11that's where there's a big argument.
07:12People say, well, you're going to
07:14downgrade the Onyx because
07:16it's got all this functionality and
07:17the reMarkable has it.
07:18So by having more functionality,
07:20you're saying it's a bad device?
07:21No, I'm not saying
07:23that. Some people like ease
07:25of use.
07:26Some people like simplicity.
07:28Some people like to drive a pickup
07:29truck. Some people like to drive a
07:31sedan. Everybody has personal
07:33choices. This channel is a
07:34community. I'm here for everybody.
07:36I love the Onyx.
07:37I love the reMarkable.
07:38I love all these devices.
07:39It's technology.
07:40It's awesome.
07:41I'm not here to steer
07:43you to say which one is best.
07:45I'm here to steer you to what works
07:47best for you and I'm hoping this
07:49video is helping you do that.
07:50And so distraction-free is important
07:52because, one, I love this comment.
07:54One of my, yesterday, one of the
07:55subscribers said if I had this
07:57device, my kids would want to play
07:58games on it and that's what we're
08:00talking about. If you have a device
08:01and you're sitting here and the kids
08:02are coming up, can I play games on
08:04that? That's a distraction
08:05device. Where this device, they
08:07would never even think about that
08:08because there's no way to play games
08:09on it. There's nothing there.
08:11It's just a note taker.
08:13And finally, this is the one that
08:15drives me crazy.
08:16This has a screen protector on it.
08:18I put it on it.
08:19They say you don't have to put one
08:20on supposedly from the factory, but
08:22why do they ship it with it?
08:23It's a pain to put it on Onyx.
08:25Please, get your screen
08:27protector on at the factory.
08:28I didn't even know this has a screen
08:30protector from the factory.
08:32And it does.
08:33You won't even notice because they
08:34put it on for you.
08:36So personally,
08:37here's the big thing.
08:39Six things.
08:39Number one, ease of use.
08:41If you're just going to be taking
08:42notes, the reMarkable 2 is
08:44an amazing device.
08:46Number three, the stylus and the
08:47case and the form factor for me,
08:49again, this is like fashion, but to
08:51me it's far superior.
08:52The quality of this device feels so
08:55It's just nice to carry around,
08:57where this Boox is okay.
08:59It just doesn't, you know, qualify.
09:01It's not as nice, right?
09:03I consider this like a Mercedes
09:05and maybe this like a Lexus, right.
09:07So it's there, but it's not
09:09there and there's a little bit of a
09:12quality difference there.
09:13The third thing, speed on and off.
09:15To me, that's a big deal.
09:16I'm very busy.
09:17I want something that's on and I can
09:19use it and then shut it off and
09:21stand by and then click the button,
09:22go. The Onyx, once it shuts off,
09:24it's takes forever to turn on and
09:26that's really annoying.
09:28You already have an iPad.
09:29If you already have an iPad, already
09:31have a Samsung tablet, you don't
09:32need all this functionality in
09:34the Onyx, which is great, or
09:36the Lumi. It's great if you need
09:38a PDF reader, those are great
09:40But if you're just looking for a
09:42note taker, not really looking for a
09:43reader, it's okay, then this
09:45is your device and you have multiple
09:47other devices, then the reMarkable 2
09:49comes in and I get it.
09:50I get the argument that I don't
09:52want to buy multiple devices.
09:53Okay, great.
09:54Then don't rip on the reMarkable
09:56people. Just go buy an Onyx, right?
09:57That's, it's pretty simple, if you
09:59are somebody that doesn't have
10:00multiple devices and looking for one
10:02device, then I think the Onyx is
10:04for you but if you need an Internet
10:06browser and all those things, you
10:07need to get more than the
10:09reMarkable, excuse me.
10:11The fifth thing is distraction-free.
10:14You know, if you don't want all that
10:15stuff on there, you know,
10:17the reMarkable 2 is your device.
10:19That's the one you want to go to.
10:20And finally, the factory-installed
10:22screen protector is a big one for
10:24me. Let's make a couple of final
10:26notes. So supposedly there's a
10:27little jagged line on the
10:28reMarkable. I haven't seen it much.
10:30It doesn't affect me at all.
10:32I'm not an artist.
10:33But if you're an artist, maybe
10:35that's something they need to fix in
10:36the software.
10:38The battery's supposed goes to
10:39ninety-eight percent.
10:40I can't get it to a hundred, that
10:41can be a software fix.
10:43So there are some of the negatives
10:44of it. But overall, it's an
10:46amazing device.
10:47I would get the marker pen because
10:49the eraser function is
10:51critical. You can also use the other
10:52stylus is these stylus is go back
10:54and forth. The Staedtler,
10:56both these devices, both of these
10:58pens work on both devices.
11:00But overall, I'm not here to say
11:02which one is better than one or the
11:03other. The key is it's a use case.
11:06If you want the six things that I'm
11:08talking about, then get the
11:09reMarkable 2 or keep your reMarkable
11:112 on order.
11:12If you want all this functionality
11:14and we talked about it yesterday,
11:15watch the video I put up yesterday,
11:17then get the Onyx Boox,
11:19okay? Boox Note Air, Boox Note, Boox
11:22you're going to be happy, but if
11:24you've got the iPad and you've got
11:25your Samsung tablets, hey, the
11:27reMarkable 2 is an amazing
11:29device. As always, thanks for
11:31watching. Remember, we do Thursdays

11:34live. If you want to ask me
11:35questions about these devices, that
11:37would be fantastic to have you show
11:38up. And of course, if you don't mind
11:40hitting that like button, if you
11:41like the video, that would be
11:43fantastic. And then we could use the
11:44subscribe because we are growing
11:46this community and I would love to
11:47have you be a part of it.

11:51going to keep bringing you great
11:52information and great ideas right
11:54here on the channel.
11:55Okay, so until tomorrow's video,
