PocketBook - is free, no ads.
Moon+ Reader Pro - currently 50% discounted in the Play Store (free non-Pro version has ads, Pro version does not).

Both give 8 bit RGB control over text and background color that persists (so 16,777,216 color possibilities for each of text and background, including black and white). PocketBook also allows one to create own background textures to use (it also supplies a couple to try), but which I have not felt the need to use.

I have both and periodically tested many others, but PocketBook is my personal preference.

Your colours remind me of my vim colour scheme which is called "flatlandia".

I get mocked at work for it because the comments sections show as grey on darker grey but it's easy on my eyes so that's the important thing.

I like both. I also code in “light mode” but sometimes I prefer dark mode

I use FBReader. It syncs across different platforms, so my Ipad, Samsung S8, and Kindle Fire 8 Tab all sync ebooks. It's the only ereader other than Kindle that I've found that will sync across multiplatform like this without any extra work.

Note: This is in regards to sideloaded books. I know that Kobo will also sync books across platform, but not sideloaded books (which is very irritating, as I like Kobo a lot).

With FBReader, free is overpriced.

I've never had the ePub formatting issues you are so passionate about. Whether it was Stanza, Marvin, Kindle app or iBooks....the basic "reading a book" part has always been fine for the books I read (mass market fiction and histories).

I'm really happy if:

1. adjust the screen by running finger up and down (not burried in a menu)
2. get books into the apps easy
3. understand and handle book series
4. day/night mode (custom colors is a nice bonus)
5. Sync between iOS and Android

The last one is what moved me from Marvin to FBReader. I can now read on my iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire Tablet or Walmart Onn tablet and the sync works across all.

Nicely -- if I've loaded a book on one device, then I open FBReader on another, it downloads the book automatically.

I don't carry all my books on my device so I don't need extensive support for book management within the app.

And, as I started with.....I've never had the problems you have with reading epub books.
