My first Kobo, the 6" Aura had that same layer. It's the capacitive touch layer I believe.

It's tin so thin it's transparent. It reduces panel brightness/whiteness a little which is why almost all the early eink had no touch and then IR touch (neither has extra layers).

The later Carta screens can have the touch integrated by E ink Corp for a slight contrast improvement (presumably on the top of the light-pipe layer. Other capacitive touch is using a 3rd party panel/layer on top of the eink light-pipe layer for the front lighting.

7 hours with the Libra 2? That seems exceptionally low, or am I misunderstanding what you wrote. I am a voracious reader and get many days of use with screen lighting around 25% and wifi on.

I'm still on the fence with the Libra Colour. Indoors, where the front light outshines the ambient even 18%-25% gives the background a whitish touch and it is basically ok. The colors are a novelty and quite pleasing
In sunlight, however, the screen turns grey and even at 100% the front light is not bright enough to compete against the sun.
I'm still trying to like it.

The buttons on the Libra are much snappier than the ones on the Forma.

I finally got a chance to compare the Clara BW/Color in-person. They're both pretty good; much more responsive overall than the old readers. The touch is more accurate, and the wifi is less buggy. The light is also more even. The case is slightly thicker and more textured than the older readers. I can't decide if I like it or not.

Even with the frontlight off, the color screen is readable even at small font sizes (colored text slightly less so), and although the colors could be more saturated, they are still clear. There is noticeable ghosting with colored images, especially when switching to a mostly white page. White is slightly darker, but still much better than e.g., the mini. Nevertheless, I'd still be happy with color, except that there is a grainy noise-like overlay over white pages especially visible at low brightness.

Every once in a while when I would download a public domain book, the ePub would designate a background color for the pages. (I wanna say The Faded Page or some other semi-obscure public domain site would do that.)

I wonder if that might be worthwhile when/if colored e-ink becomes the norm?

For me, using my Libra Colour, the one ebook I tried that set a background colour was very annoying. Partly that the ebook used inline styles so there was not one background colour but 16 of them. 16 shades of beige are 16 more than were needed. After I converted the inline styles to a stylesheet, I removed all of them.

Not for me, that's certain. I don't want any font or background color hard-coded in the css and delete them immediately. Same as with the rest of various stupid css rules publishers insist on putting in, like body margins, excessive line height, funny body font sizes and huge empty spaces under chapter headings (in some cases, like half the page). Who are the idiots who think that such things are necessary?

I only change a couple of things. I want the body text justified, because having Kobo force it causes other oddities, and no gaps between paragraphs.

For the most part, I leave the rest alone.
