First- if you want a cover, buy the one sold by Boox. Yeah, it is a few dollars more but it is perfect. Next, check for updates - in the last update automatic updating didn't detect the latest update. The latest fixes many small, but annoying, issues.Practice the writing app and I suggest not using AI to convert to text. Simple is best so unless you need typed notes try just leave the handwritten ones. FYI the latest update is a vast improvement with PDF files and also makes taking notes easier. Another small fix was to keep wi fi on after powering down and starting up. There are more fixes I probably haven't noticed yet. The device improves the more I use it. Lastly, e ink is easy on my eyes compared to viewing on my cellphone.

The Likebook Mars eReader is my first eReader. I'm very pleased with my purchase. The screen is beautiful and easy to read. I find the e-ink screen far easier on my eyes than reading on a computer or phone. It's super quick and responsive. The LED lighting is evenly distributed across the screen and can be adjusted to remove blue color for reading prior to bed. Lots of storage and an expansion card slot means I'll always have plenty to read. I was able to activate the Google Play store, so I'm able to install Android Apps, which expands the utility of this device and allows access to a variety of book sources (e.g., Kindle Store, Google, your local library, downloaded books, etc.). The Likebook Mars also handles PDF files quite nicely! I've installed the KOReader and the Libby app so I can easily borrow books from my local library over WiFi. I've been able to install additional Truetype fonts, which is great. Adjusting reading preferences is easy. You can even adjust the contrast for words and pictures separately, which comes in handy at times. Another big plus for me is that I'm not subjected to advertisements when I use this device.

I wanted an e-ink tablet that could read PDF files as most of my reading (medical journals) are in this format and I think e-ink is easier on my eyes. I already spend too many hours looking at an LED screen. I reviewed the sony digital paper and the remarkable extensively and also looked at the variety of Onyx Boox that are available on Amazon. I think the likebook mars hits the right price point with many of the features of the competitors. At first, I was concerned that 7.8 inch wouldn't be large enough but with its super fast processor - scrolling around PDFs are fine - fitting just enough onto the screen for me to read. The backlighting is a welcome bonus that you wont find on the competitors. I have a few journals that have android apps to read online and directly download to the device - you wont be able to do that on Sony or remarkable. Plus I can use the browser to download other books - or read the medical books online thru the expertconsult app. Overall, this is a great device - I would buy one with a 10 inch or 13 inch screen but this is still an amazing device at a price that cant be beat.

This device has great potential. The hardware is excellent. The firmware needs some further tweaking, especially with auto-refresh. If the promised update in October corrects that issue, then this device may prove to be the best Android E-Ink reader now available.Is this device for you? If you only want to read eBooks and nothing else, you don't really need this. Any E-Ink device, and some basic knowledge of Calibre, will supply your needs. However, if you want to use other apps that are focused on reading - such as Instapaper or Pocket or a Bible study app - that you can't install on just any E-Ink device, then this device is definitely worth considering. The only ones in its league right now are the Onyx Note and Max 2. Both of these are larger and more expensive, and the Note lacks a backlight. Neither have an SD card slot. The Onyx firmwares are a little more polished at this stage than that of this device, though.

Important is that it reads all formats (stock reader does not read DJVu) and many languages - multilanguage keyboards can be activated - Android 6.DjVu can be read with FBReader or Librera (best for it). Some textbooks I have are in scanned DJVu.WiFi and Bluetooth work fine.The best feature is front light - came to love night light version!
