I'm hesitant to enable the Play store due to possible impact on the battery life, any observations there?

No it's just like any other app the most it can do is if you have it set to auto update apps(I never do) then it will do that in the background. I use google services heavily for work so its Nice to have the framework on it for me anyways. If it would start to cause some issue you can just revert it and it should just disable the app.

It also has a stock settings location vs the Boyue one as well, I for instance turned on developer options then turned all animations to .5x speed like I do on all android devices I use.

Thank you Malcolm! At the risk of being ignorant how did colour appear on the screen shots?

I used the adb command to take the shot then got it off the device. The os is in color all the time just the ui skin boyue made is grayscale and the non stock apps are full color as they have no theme to the icons. The os is normal but the eink display is incapable of displaying anything but grayscale.
