I have Note, and I think the main advantage of it is the flexible screen - for the first time I feel completely relaxed, not afraid to break the screen. Until now all my readers had glass screens.

Now I need a second one. I am very suspicious of Note Plus.
Note Plus has glass on top of the screen, so there is danger of cracking it or breaking, and with such a big 10.3" screen, it really should be super rigid (with heavy metal frame?) to avoid cracking the screen.
I think the main advantage of the flexible screen is gone.
It is a very expensive reader with a big glass surface and with it you cannot afford to doze off when reading.
Correct me if I'm wrong?

Actually, I don't use stylus at all so I am thinking about Note Lite now.
As I understand it, in all other respects it is exactly the same as Note?

....

As to this Boyue Mimas thing: do I understand it correctly that it has the same flexible screen and no glass, even though with the front light?
The memory card up to 128 GB and buttons - the must have things for me, so I am very interested.
I don't need front light though. And white is unacceptable, if I get it I will try to paint it black or just use some black tape - the screen appears to be so much whiter then.

I grew to love the native Neo reader on my Onyx Boox Note.
I wonder if it is possible to get it separately and install on Mimas.
Neo reader is the best for pdf, I tried many different readers and none comes even close.
I mean - for reading pdf "books" if I may call them that: they do not require any zooming - pdfs generated for sizes equal to the original paper book sizes.
As to epub and other proper non-fixed ebook formats, Neo reader is still pretty good but there are alternatives.

Is the Boox Gulliver available for sale in the US?
Anyone got their hands on one? There's a price tag?

Spec-wise Gulliver seems like the Note minus sound (no speakers/microphone/mp3/wav) though still weighing the same 325gr.

the "activate google play" button is piss take.

looking in the apps page it can be seen that the device is sending tons of data to google.
deactivatin and stopping the google apps has only effect (if at all) uo to the next reboot

Is there a way to permanently deactivate the google shit on the device?
Do I have to root the device for that?

Small question. Is there any reason to use a screen protector with note+? Is it possible to scratch the glass with the pen?
