Not because of residue, but because the text quality degrades over time without full refresh. Most people seem not to notice it, but I do and it bothers me exceedingly. No, I don't mean ghosting. The darkness of the font lessens, the text grows paler. The change is slight, but I notice it immediately. Funny thing is, almost no one else seems to see this. But I've seen it on every eink reader I've ever owned.
Have you tried the PW5? I'm very particular about this stuff too but with the Kindle now it's no longer an issue.

If this was a problem for me, I would set my Kobo to refresh every X pages or every chapter. I have mine set for 50 pages. I had to go into the config and change the value to 50. I figure if I find that the screen needs refreshing, I can double tap the screen to do it.

No. Buttons are a must-have for me.

Well, that's you. I want my readers to refresh every page.

While reading a book, you tap once in the middle of the screen to bring up the Back to, etc. items. then tap a second time in the middle of the screen which will dismiss the menus and refresh the screen. Personally, I don't use a tap to change pages preferring to set it to swipe only though using the middle of the screen to tap should work even with tap enabled.

That has worked on any of my Kobo devices for quite a while now.

That explains it. While reading a book, you tap in the middle of the screen and you get a page forward. If you tap on fhe bottom of the screen, it brings up a menu and you have to tap somewhere else to dismiss it.

If depends on the "you".

I also use full refresh every page since it was an option. I will try something like 10-page today.
