I have the Poke Pro, which I believe is very similar but without the stylus/wacom and 6". Love it, after being loyal to Kindles since their early days.

I use mine for reading articles/books/manga/chess for about 3/4 hours a day, the battery lasts about a week which I'm happy with.

I spent a lot of time trying alternatives and I recommend this software:
- play store, wasn't setup by default for me but was fairly easy to get it working
- android nova launcher if you want a minimal, very customisable homepage
- moon+ reader for books (the standard reader is ok, but I wanted more control)
- google drive for getting files on/off the device and management
- tachiyomi for manga/graphic novels
- pocket for easily switching between finding an article on another device, and reading it on the ereader

I also got a stand, and remote:

The remote is especially good for reading PDFs, as you want to easily page turn not scroll but generally it's more comfortable reading with one.

My son is getting a Nova Pro for his birthday next month.
