Has the update actually fixed it on your device?
It didn't work on my device.

Android 10 plus Google Apps on A5?

It should be possible to install Android 10 GSI AOSP that may include Google play store on the A5. Has anyone tried it?

'Ghosting usually happens to a certain degree, as is to be expected with e-ink, thus i wouldn't consider this 'poor screen performance' for what i am concerned. Usually, pressing the e-ink button once in a while quickly restores screen contents. Has never been intensive enough to ever bother me, though.'
In strong sunlight, the ghosting is much worse on my A5 than the (maybe 10) different e-ink devices I've had over the last 11 years. I suspect it's a problem with all/most e-ink screens but usually accommodated for in the software. Although it's strange that this issue was widely reported on some first generation e-ink devices, became a non-issue, but now it's back for the A5 and Onyx Nova 2. My e-ink button is used as a back button and light switch and I don't want to change that so in the sun I put the device in and out of sleep every few pages (seems the quickest way to clear the artefacts). Not a massive issue for me, but I don't live in a sunny country and only use the A5 as a reader.

I've never seen the problem on my Nova 2, but I very rarely take it outside. My Poke Pro and my son's Nova Pro are both fine in sunlight. On the Nova 2 can't this be fixed by changing the refresh settings? E.g. to regal/more regular total refresh? The A5 doesn't have this level of refresh control.

A5 Screen protector?

Dear A5-owners,

do you use a screen protector on your device? If yes, what kind do your recommend:
  • clear vs. matte
  • glass vs. plastic/PET or others

I'd be glad if you could specify the advantages/disadvantages of your preferred solution.

Thanks in advance.

The A5 was delivered with a matte screen protection already applied.

The phone came with a matte protector but I took it off after a few days. I like the screen much more without it.

I haven't taken mine out yet, but I suspect it's common with eink screens, more noticeable in some than in others. My second Nook Simple Touch was sluggish at low temperatures (near 0° C) and the screen lost contrast in the sun, with a strip at the bottom becoming completely blank. My first Nook Simple Touch worked better under extreme temperatures, so I don't think it depends only on the model, it's more a thing of the eink technology

No - there are only certain models in which this appearance occurs
I have devices with 6, 6.8, 7.8 Wacom, 8 and 10.3 inch Wacom screens and it only occurs with the 7.8 inch Wacom screens.
