Same thing for physicial page turn buttons.
For these very reasons i haven't joined the Boox Note owners but bought instead a Boyue Likebook Note about a month ago.

The Boyue Likebook Note compares to the Onyx Boox Note as follows:

+ SD card slot
+ Frontlight (IMHO pointless feature)
+ Physical page turn buttons
+ Less expensive

- Battery is only 3500 mAh (IMHO good enough)
- RAM is only 1 GB (IMHO no bottleneck)
- CPU is just a 1GHZ i.MX6 Sololite ARM Cortex A9 (IMHO good enough for reading)
- Included software is mediocre, 3rd party readers and dictionaries are required.
- No trustworthy European seller for Boyue devices (Onyx's Booxtor, you are the best!)

If the Boox Note would have had an SD card slot i would have preferred it over the Likebook Note in spite of the higher price tag.

[ Personal off topic remarks: I don't care about the Android OS, nor web browser, nor any other other bells and whistles which are not directly related to reading. My dream reader would not have any WiFi, nor superfluous front light or audio speakers and thus be much lighter and easier to hold. And the included software would be much better adapted to reading and text handling than the currently lacking state of the art appears to be. ]
