Very true. Both Japanese and Chinese render very well on my Hisense A5 and A5 Pro CC. Wish such devices had been around when I was first learning Chinese.

I love both my Onyx and my Hisense devices. They work incredibly well for reading. However, it can sometimes be a bit of a challenge initially setting up a reading app for a grayscale screen. Sometimes it is very difficult to see the options and where to tap. Had that problem just today playing around with my Nova 3 Color. Thought I'd see what nighttime mode on Moon+ Reader looked like. It was beautiful. The only problem was that I could then not see the icon to switch it back to regular mode. It took a few attempts.

The user interface on both Onyx and Hisense also takes some getting used to. Personally, I think the benefits which these devices provide are well worth the investment in time necessary in learning to use them. However, I could see how many people who just want a simple reading device might become frustrated. Especially when instruction manuals are not well translated or written.

Try using the Moon+ Reader app to open Japanese books. Although any Japanese text will be displayed horizontally, it renders furigana correctly. You can then customize the dictionary lookup response.

When reading in Japanese, I set a short press to look up selected text in a Japanese language app that I like. I use a long press to have the selected text looked up in the dictionaries which I have installed in the Goldendict app. Works a treat.

Sadly it does not. But perhaps someone will figure out a way to enable it. Such instructions exist for a different model of these and I’m curious if the process is the same or similar...

I find the culprit is usually Oynx's "Whiten App Background". It does more harm than good IMO. I turn it off in apps. Agreed that manuals could be better.

Responding to your other post, it is more so that the Kindle Android app dictionary doesn't seem to do as good a job deconjugating verbs than the eInk Kindles for some reason. At least from what I recall. I much prefer reading it vertically. More fun that way.
