From Likebook Mars to Likebook Ares. Worth it?

Hi,
I am transitioning from classic ereaders to eink android devices.

Just got my hands in a Likebook Mars, but was curious about the Ares.
Would be worth the upgrade?
Any links to check specs and software differences?

I know Ares has stylus and wacom, but wondering if i should upgrade (price aside).

The stylus is appealing, but would like now if there are more benefits, like performance and apps.

I also know Onyx also makes similar tablets (nova to nova pro?)
If anyone has advice about those , I would welcome it as well.
May consider that brand too


Thanks so much

I sold my Likebook Mars and got an ARES - I like it better because of the flat surface, it has USB-C with USB-OTG, it works with 4 TB hard disks, and the pen enables handwritten notes to be inserted into PDF files.
My Ares has formatted a Samsung Evo plus 512 GB SD card as internal storage - SD card change is not as easy as with Mars, because the card is in the device via tray.

Considering the normal wear and tear of such a device, isn't that actually a safer approach to SD card usage?

I dare say that SD card as mass media storage device for a reader shouldn't be a quick/frequent swap in/swap out proposition... or am I missing something here?

Kindly yours,
