Assuming you use apps other than ComiXology's own app, which system has better comic readers? iOS or Android?

I'm familiar with Android apps like Perfect Viewer, Challenger and CDisplayEX. I've also used some Windows apps on my Surface (Cover is the best available there). But I've never had a chance to try the iOS ones.

I'd say they're fairly equal in that regard. I use ComicGlass on iOS, Perfect Viewer on Android and CDisplayEX on Windows.

I kinda stopped using Windows for comic reading when I first got the iPad though. Windows tablets I've used were either too heavy or batteries didn't last as long as the iPad's.

Alas, most of my friends/family are not interested in dedicated e-readers and those that are already have their own (usually newer model).
I found that's true for me also, the younger gen. only want to use their larger phones for reading and everything else. Except when they are going to the beach and sun glare is a problem. Then they will bring along a kindle paperwhite I gave them. It seems they will only use them for a specific use. Vacations and camping trips they will toss in kindle to their travel bags. Where they want to save batteries on the phones and where wifi can be sketchy.

Lol! I found that's true also. Especially for the the younger gen. it all can be done on one device, a large phone. They see no need for anything else. The older gen. like my ancient uncle 89 and counting. Loved it for his fishing camp use. He never heard of an e reader and would read the same magazines or paperbacks. No wifi or internet at the camp which is how he likes it. So the paperwhite was something he likes but never heard of before. The first thing he said when I showed it to him was " What the heck is that ? " I loaded some books about fishing and magazines. He loved it ! He takes it to the camp and charges it at home when he comes back a couple weeks later. He has an account now and I showed him how to buy books so he has added quite a few to his collection. Now I'm thinking he would probably like a waterproof kindle paperwhite to bring on his boat. So far I don't have one to give him though. If he drops the one he has in the lake then I'll probably get him a used Paperwhite 4 or on sale. He really does love it

E-Readers definitely don't seem to be part of the younger demographic... I see more 40+ using it, but that is fine by me. I couldn't imagine trying to read on anything else when I am out in the sun Aside from my phone, my eReader is the one thing I make sure to take when we go on holiday.

Sometimes it is interesting to see WHO latches on to them though. One of the best-used eReaders in our (extended) family belongs to my father-in-law. We bought him a refurb'd PRS-350 as a gift when they were being cleared out over 6 years ago. I figured if he was anything like my parents, he would never use it. Never heard much about it for quite some time, but when we asked how he got on with it, he was apparently taking it with him to read at the pub after work every day. He is STILL using it to this day!

I bought in February 2017 my Kindle Paperwhite. Then I wanted something bigger, so I bought in July 2018 my Kobo Aura One (if there had been a 7.8-inch Kindle I would have bought it). The KAO now is my first reader and I use the Paperwhite when I need to take a reader with me and the KAO is too big.

When I'm reading on my tablet, I use Comixology since that's where I buy them all. Otherwise, I read library comics or the few cbr/cbz files I have on my Kobo ereader.

So the Kindle keyboard went to my dad. The Nexus 7 died and was replaced by a HUDL 2 which itself was replaced by a Kindle Fire 8.

The rest I still have.

Also - Kindle PW2, PW3, Oasis2, Kobo Glo HD, Clara HD, Aura One and BQ Cervantes 4.

Hmm. 9 eink readers and a tablet? Too many??

You need to experience the joy of reading with a Voyage.
