Yes. Having the Android based Mars shows it. The dedicated ereaders have better battery life and are less complicated. There is a niche market for an eink mostly ereader with the Playstore. But most people want simpler.

Some people claim to have fixed it by re-partitioning the internal storage. I took mine back and was able to demo it on multiple books that are OK on the PRS350, Nook Simple Touch, Binatone, and 3 models of Kobo and passed Calibre checks, so the shop refunded me.
Note, it's not directly because it's a Sony Android. The T2 is OK.
One thing I didn't do with my T1 was update it to the latest firmware because of the version of the modified reading software. So maybe the bug was in a later or earlier firmware version. I just don't know as I've never seen the bug. My mother who also has a T1 on the same firmware did not have the bug.

I did whatever updates were available on my T1 and mine did have the dictionary lookup freeze problem. Eventually the T1 also stopped working with the Overdrive library so I ditched it for a T3, which also eventually stopped working with Overdrive.... but I didn't experience other problems with the T3.

The reason the T series stopped working with Overdrive is that Overdrive changed their software and Sony did not keep up.

Yes, nothing to do with bugs.

Yes, I know that. I just mentioned it as the actual reason I stopped using the T1. The dictionary lockup bug alone had not made me stop using the T1.
