I read pdfs, comics and non-fiction books on my Samsung Chromebook Plus, usually flipped round in tablet mode. The bright 1920 x 1080 12.3" screen makes this a real pleasure.

It runs Android apps very well indeed.

It's a bit heavy to hold up for long so I have to have it propped up, either on my knees, a cushion, or in 'tent' mode on a table, but this is rarely a problem.

(I read fiction on my eInk Kobo H2O.)

I read on a G Pad X™ LG VK815 8.3" - perfect for me - unfortunately it is having problems with the touch screen - I have to press harder than I like to get it to perform. Android 6. I've been looking for a new one, but haven't found any I like. I don't want to upgrade from Android 6, so that is a problem. As I understand it (and I could be wrong) above Android 6, ebooks are duplicated from Calibre Companion to whatever ebook reader one is using (its an Android thing, not a CC problem).

I’m not much for movies or television so I do a lot of reading, especially in the evenings. For years I used an iPad Mini. I found the 7.9” size nearly ideal for reading both sitting in a chair or lounging in bed. As I’ve gotten older, eye strain and insomnia became a problem. I reluctantly switched to an e-ink Carta HD device. It took some adjustment. By comparison they are ugly and slow but I’m glad I did. The difference in my health is profound.

I chose the Boyue Likebook Plus because I wanted a more all-in-one reading experience. I’ve added a few news apps, several bookstore apps, and finally cloudLibrary and Overdrive/Libby for library access. With the included reader for all my own ePub files and it’s a great solution for me.

I've used a plenty of tablets, for reading and for other purposes. My max comfortable size is 8" for reading and the screen needs to have a high DPI.

I've used a HTC Flyer, a Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and now have an Asus ZenPad S8.0. My Surface Pro 2 I never use for reading. Neither do I use my phone (even if my Yotaphone has an e-ink screen). But I still prefer my Kobo Aura One.
