  • Re: Best device to just read a book

    Peter, Before the Surface Go 2, I had the original Surface Go. Mine had the Pentium Gold processor with 8gb of RAM and a 128gb SSD. That Go could handle about two-thirds of what I wanted to do in Logos well enough. However, ask it to load a layout, do serious indexing or an involved word search, and be prepared to wait a while. The Surface Go 2, with

    [quote user="Bruce Roth"] Do either of these devices allow you to change the e-ink display to white text on black background? A dark mode. I understand that the latest Paperwhite Kindle allows for this. [/quote] The Onyx firmware lacks a system setting that will do this. The Onyx native reader, NeoReader, does not seem to have this feature. If it has

    [quote user="Greg Rose"] I'm computer illiterate when it comes to devices like kindle and paperwhite. When you say you would use the Paperwhite for reading, do you mean reading your resources from Logos, i.e. book resources in Logos. Is there a Logos App that works with the Paperwhite? When you talk about "conversion is no longer as simple as "send

  • Re: Onyx Boox Poke 2 - works!

    The main difference between the Poke 2 and the Nova 2 is screen size. Besides that, I believe that the Nova 2 has slightly better hardware, so it should offer slightly better and smoother performance. It's a matter of what size you are most comfortable with. I started out with six inch ereaders. Then I tried a larger one and I was hooked. The Nova 2

    I could rattle off at least six e-ink devices that support Logos, mostly from Onyx and Likebook (Boyue)!

  • Re: Onyx Boox Poke 2 - works!

    I have the Nova 2. It's a 7.8 inch display, falling in between the Poke and the Note. My Nova does some of that app optimization automatically. I can tweak its settings easily from within Verbum or any other app I use. For me, the 7.8 inch display hits the sweet spot. Large enough to do a decent job on the occasional pdf I read, but still light enough

  • Re: Best device to just read a book

    For reading and not study? First choice: my Onyx Boox Nova 2. E-Ink, runs Android 9.0, good performance, has 'cool' and 'warm' light, easiest on the eyes for long-term reading. 7.8 inch display - nice size but not too big or heavy. No conversion necessary; uses Logos/Verbum Android app. Second choice (it's a close second): my iPad mini 5. About the

    I have the Onyx Boox Nova 2. I had the original Note, which I liked, but I found it too large to be my main book reader. I had a 6 inch display ereader before. I tried the Likebook Mars and the Nova 2. Both are good devices, but I found the Nova 2 a little better at just about everything. For me, the 7.8 inch display is a good compromise. It's large

    It may also be worth noting that the Go 2 has a microSD card slot. If you need extra storage of data but not necessarily SSD speed, that could save you a few dollars!

  • Surface Go 2

    Microsoft recently released an upgrade to their Surface Go, called the Surface Go 2. The base model still has the Pentium Gold processor, but the biggest news is the availability of a Core M CPU with the 8 GB RAM/128 GB SSD model. The Core M, combined with an improved display and a significantly faster SSD, make the Go 2 better at handling Logos/Verbum

    [quote user="Daniel M"] Hi Mark, I bought one of the first Onyx Boox devices quite a few years ago (T68 if I remember correctly). I liked it, but found it too unstable to work with it in the end, so I sold it after a couple of months. I have been looking at the Nova 2 in recent days, could you tell me a bit more about your experience? Is it a stable

  • Re: News for E-Ink fans

    My experience is very much like yours. For my purposes - using Logos resources, reading eBooks, Instapaper, and similar apps - the Nova works very well. E-Ink is also friendlier to my eyes than LED or AMOLED displays. I would not recommend using an e-Ink device for videos or games. Some videos will work passably well, and some games that are not demanding

    I have recently sold my Nova and purchased the Onyx Boox Nova 2. It runs Android 9.0 (Pie), so it should be future-proof as regards Logos compatibility for quite a while. It is an E-Ink device with a 7.8 inch display, 32 gb of internal storage (no SD card slot), and 3 gb of RAM. I was very pleased with my previous Nova. The Nova 2 builds upon the Nova

    I have the Nova, not the Pro version. The main difference is that the 'plain' Nova does not have a stylus. Play Store is not required to sideload apks. You'll need to enable "Install from Unknown Sources" as you would for any Android tablet. Sideloading works fine. The Nova/Nova Pro excel in contrast/light adjustment. Logos has never looked better on

    If anyone is still following this thread... Onyx has just released the Note 2, and the Max 3, both of which have Android 9.0. One Onyx rep was quoted as saying that an Android 9.0 firmware upgrade would be made available for at least some current Onyx devices. I suspect that we may also see a new Nova with Android 9.0 in the not too distant future.
