Thank you in advance and I'm sorry for the hassle!

No problem, here it is. As said, I don't see a difference with just 5% brightness.

Also, the images from the phone are not very clear. If you want I can send another set of images with the same settings now when I am at home.

Thank you for the review. Even though I recently got a Kobo Libra 2, I looked into getting a Pocketbook Era. It's a bit harder where I am and more expensive. I may still get it as a backup or alternative 7" device. I like recessed screens but it sounds like for most people, the extra layer is not an issue.

What I've seen with both Pocketbooks is that you better change from the default font and the text will look much sharper.

The screen is not an issue to me at all.

True. I wasn't happy with any of the fonts that came with my PocketBooks. All too light for me. I installed Constantia and use it for everything (and am very happy with it).

Same deal with the other readers that can sideload fonts. A dark font makes all the difference in the world for me.

I went with PT Serif (pre-loaded). The fonts now look sharp, clean and easy to read. I tried Bookerly and Atkinson Hyperlegible, but that PT Serif is actually the best for me.

Just the default font is not crisp enough. I don't know why.

I think a web search brings up an uncountable number of download sites, but anyway here is what I'm using, thickened a bit with fontforge. I think I emboldened by 1.02 or something the like, but each time I open fontforge it takes me a quarter of an hour to figure out where the setting was, so can't tell for sure. Also, when saving the fonts fontforge complained about many path inconsistencies, which I couldn't resolve. Anyway, having copied both the regular and the italic version (the file naming is mine), I'm quite pleased by the result on my device. YMMV.

Thank you. I'll give it a try.
