With PDfs it's the font spacing setting that does sometimes pull words together when you reflow them.

It's been happening for quite a while and I've done several updates and it's not changed (last one about 8 weeks ago). Does this happen to other people, is there a fix for it? Apologies if this question has been answered before, I searched but could not find anything related to it. Thanks.

EDIT: I'm reading epubs.
I saw that with the old default reader, but I haven't seen it with ZReader, and I have never seen it in the apps I normally use for reading, such as Moon+ Reader and the Kindle app.

Do you recommend likebook mars in july 2020?

Hello. I would like to know 4 things about likebook mars
1. How is its battery life (both with and without WiFi?)
2. Can I install Koreader latest version into it?
3. It's currently on sale on Banggood.com for 170$, should I buy it and how reliable is banggood itself in terms of after sales services+ warranty?
4. And what about the issues with mars like sticking the device in boot loop, bricking, software issues, etc
Thanks

I don't care, I always charged at about 50%.
But I was not on long safaris without electricity.
I also have enough free sockets at home.

I don't use the KOReader, but the only pro program I haven't got started was Sygic

What does that have to do with Likebook Mars?

The one that I had and sold to a friend works without problems.
The device is maintained and charged in good time.

I never played with the Mars but had in my hands a Likebook Mimas, which is similar and use the same SoC.

1. Not too bad on normal usage. It is bad keeping charge on suspension. You should power off for long periods without usage.

2. Yeah. Works fine. Use the last version from github or F-droid. The one that comes in the Likebook store is a bit old.

3. No idea.

4. Hardware issues aside this device is pretty indestructible SW wise. They use a custom protocol as bootloader. My suggestion, if you purchase the product, would be doing a initial backup of boot, system and data partitions and never touch the rest of them. If something go bad you can restore them.

You can read more about backup/flash in http://www.hotmcu.com/wiki/Flashing_..._Rockchip_Tool. I never played with Windows tools but rkflashkit is amazing.
