Quite agree, which is one of the reasons why viewing PDFs on my Onyx Note is so pleasurable.

But, to be really comprehensive, you would need to add processing speed to the above list. Even if a device could do all of the above, if it took it an eternity to do it, the PDF experience would be painful.

Koreader makes PDF viewing passable even on a 6" screen.
I already have Koreader installed on both my 6" and my 8" Kobos. It does dramatically enhance the viewing of certain PDFs, particularly those which are primarily text oriented. It doesn't do much for other PDFs.

For certain PDFs, screen size is what will matter most, closely followed by processing speed. The Onyx Note has both of those which makes it such a joy for PDFs.
