Hello

Personally, I found the 10 inch tablets to be too big to read ebooks comfortably unless the tablet is perched on a table or something. I much prefer to use a seven inch tablet which is almost the size of an actual book and is not too heavy. If you think of looking at seven inch tablets you must look at the Google Nexus 7 (2013); it is magnificent as an ebook reader and for so much more.

My iPad Mini is now my main reading device for the same reason. Tablets in the 7" range with high-resolution screens makes superb reading devices. 10" is just too big for everyday use unless you have some usage (eg reading PDFs or magazines) which benefits from the larger size.

The tablet in the OP is 580g and the screen rez isn't horrible, but not great either. For me this would be way to heavy as a reader in most instances.

I do read on a bit larger tablet than many (Fire HDX 8.9) and like it just fine, but if it was much heavier or larger I'd be looking at something smaller.

The pixel density on that tablet is 224 ppi. That isn't bad, but it isn't really great either. The pixel density on the 7" Nexus 7.2 is 323 ppi for example. And like others mentioned, a 10.1" tablet gets difficult to hold after a while making reading on it a hassle.

To be fair, though, pixel density isn't really a show-stopper for many people. The majority of people here at MR are happy reading on 167dpi eInk screens. A 200+ dpi screen is pretty good.

Full HDMI! The offbrand Chinese really are pushing the envelop of tech on an android tablet.

When I'm in a big comfy chair I want my Nexus 10. It sits in my lap with a large enough font to read, and large enough screen that I'm not swiping to the next page all the time.

Most everywhere else I read on my Note 2.

In terms of features, sure. I've found battery life isn't that great and good luck on the warranty front. It's a good thing these tablets are relatively cheap so replacing them isn't as painful as, say, replacing a 128GB LTE iPad.

Yes, battery life really is the main difference between a low-end and a premium tablet. I use my iPad Mini for at least 3h a day, and recharge it every 3-4d. A cheap tablet with similar usage would need recharging every day (which may not be an issue at all for many people, of course).

I would also recommend a 7-inch tablet if reading is going to be a primary activity.

Make that twice a day. Battery life on standby with my offbrand Chinese tablets are bad. Compare that to weeks on the iPad. The 7" ones aren't so bad but the 9.7" retina have been pretty awful.

Take a look at the Asus memo HD 7. It is pretty well spec'd out at $150 and I get a good 10 hours of reading before the 15% warning goes off.
