My Onyx Boox Nova 2 arrived a couple of days ago, and my first impressions are good.

One thing that surprised me, was the lack of support for fixed-layout epub3's by the built-in Neo app. I've tried a couple of other Android-apps for those, and the best option so far appears to be Google Play Books.

The built-in fonts seem to contain a lot of different-language versions of a font called "Noto", with serif-versions without serifs. Does anybody know a way to remove or hide those? That would make adding other fonts and navigating the font-menu a lot easier.

I deleted most of the fonts, but the device must be rooted to do so

Thanks, I will look into that.

(If Onyx-Boox-people read here: it would be great to offer users better font-management options.)

I got this update, but I had to set the language to American English:

Fix reboot problem
Optimize the dark spots under sunlight.

I could not test in the absence of sun.
But booting is now very fast in my opinion.


So now I had the sun shining - the second picture is from AlReader
