No buttons. Temperature controlled?

EDIT: Oops, sorry, I see it is a Note upgrade. Well, it could have been updgraded with buttons...

What are the differences between this new one and the standard one?
Anybody willing to help with translations here?

EDIT: Is it the difference in the e-ink display? Possibly aligned with frame like on Sony DPT-RP1?

Only difference: Note+ with flat screen.

Same price.

As far as I know, most Note+ users like it, some don't and switched back to Note.

Quote:
The screens of the two are exactly the same, the difference is that the cover material on the top of the screen is different.

Note The most surface-covered material is an anti-glare film.

The material covered by the Note+ surface is an anti-glare glass cover.

The most important parameter that affects the clarity and display of the screen is the transparency of the material on the surface of the screen. The transmittance of glass in the industry is about 10% higher than that of the protective film. Theoretically, the contrast of the display of tempered glass is also better.

From the actual comparison photos sent by some users, it is true that the display effect of Note+ is better.

From what I heard so far, there is no such plan at the moment.

Still no sd-card slot... VERY BAD for heavy readers or users of the kiwix app.
How can Onyx justify such stupid design decisions ?
Sd-card slot cost almost nothing... so it is not a cost issue here.
Same thing for physical page turn buttons.
Boyue Likebook Note hardware is more appealing.

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. ]

[EDIT: Could the original poster or one of the moderators please remove that annoyingly large graphic file in this thread's first post? ]

I was very disappointed
I was waiting for front-lit screen. If they use a glass screen why they don't provide it with the light.
I will wait more

I assume the glass screen would also solve the stylus scratching screen problems of the Note. That alone is a worthy upgrade.

You buy a device for reading, and you place glass on the surface?!
It would be worth the upgrade if your ratio from note-taking to text reading is at least 99:1 .
And anyway, you would not need an EPD screen if you do not read on it.
Unless, of course, there now exists a glare-proof, reflection-free glass. I need to see it, then I will believe it.

Most devices from E Ink have glass screens on the front of the device and work very well. The E Ink Mobius screen has a flexible backing on the display to avoid breakage of the screen making it more rugged. The front (top) of the display could be either, plastic or glass. A front glass is thicker and less likely to break than the back.
