Kobo Aura One for pdf viewing

Hi,
I'm an academic and I want to view basic PDFs (text, no images) on an eReader (i.e. journal articles), and highlight and take notes on the highlights.
I can do all this with my current Kindle Paperwhite 1, but the screen is a little small.
I love the look of the Kobo Aura ONE, and the bigger screen is really attractive. However, I've heard terrible things about the software for PDFs.

I had 2 questions:
1) is it true that you can't highlight or annotate pdf docs on Kobo Aura One?
2) I have come across this Koreader software that you can install on it. I was wondering how well that worked, and whether I can highlight and take notes with that? It appears I can highlight pdfs, but still can't note them.

I might have to end up getting this new Kindle Oasis, but the screen is significantly smaller, and I read a lot in bed so would like the filtering of blue light feature that Kobo offer but Kindle do not.

Any advice would be very much appreciated.

I have no personal experience of the Kobo eReaders.

I have read PDFs on a Kindle K3 and found it usable (and better in Landscape.)

But why an eReader?

An Amazon or other tablet would be much the same cost, would allow the choice of several PDF reading client Apps for the best results AND give you colour and a larger screen (10" on the new Amazon Fire).

annotation and notes are said to be available but I have only used them on a PC.

Same for a 'blue light' filtered screen.

Thanks for this. I have an iPad; I just don't like reading for long periods of time (which I have to do for work) on LCD screens due to the eye strain, otherwise I'd just do all this on my computer.
Of course a tablet would be much more functional, but it's definitely some kind of ereader I think I need.
