Hardly hoop jumping at all. Dead simple. I have the other devices anyway. And it seldom takes long to discover how to adjust the visual settings for an app to make it usable on an eink screen.

As for Android, quite pleased to have it. NeoReader does not handle Japanese all that well. I don't run a lot of other apps on my Onyx devices, but the ones that I do make reading and studying much more pleasurable. Even for Chinese, there's a dictionary app which I have which is far superior to what NeoReader ships with.

Mostly plain sailing for me. However, some people seem determined to see a tempest in a teacup. Whatever sinks your boat.

If you don't need other apps than the ones your ereader ships with, no need to install them. There are also plenty of ereaders which don't allow users to install apps.

I initially bought something like that, with the result that I read paper.
Now I only have one registered, switched off and unused ancient Kindle of these, because it allows me to download books without a new DRM.

Well now we have new readers with a newer version of android. I guess none of the older readers will be getting an update.

I haven't seen a single Android update from Onyx-Boox.
However, new releases with (somewhat) improved hardware.
In my opinion, Note 2, Nova 2, Poke 2 will not get an Android update either, because the 3-series versions are in the starting blocks.
