    Another manufacturer which saves money on GPS. It is miracle we have smartphones packed with features, because other than that (tablets, e-readers) it is all about providing bare minimum.

    To this day I still think e-ink tablets are super underrated. I wish these tablets had more updated versions of Android 6.0 is already pretty dated but usable. Do these tablets have good/consistent software updates? It would be nice to have consistent updates.

    E-ink displays use front lit screens not back lights, but it looks like the the device doesn't know what it uses and calls it a backlight in the settings

    Well, if you want your book live more than one week, you should definitely avoid android system and turned on wi-fi. These guys will drain your battery as fast as they can

    Can any one please tell me why is this 225$ ?
    You can get a decent android tablet or a chuwi windows tablet at that price with better specs and screen
    Is there anything really special about this tablet? (this is not sarcasm, I really don't know the answer) and btw sorry if I wrote something wrong my English is not very good

    Cool review for what looks to be an awesome e-ink device (though I did see your update in the comments about it getting bricked). I am curious thought, and I advise you to test this if possible, if e-ink devices with Android can run the Kindle app and, as a result, download and read the Kindle library. This matters because there are MANY Kindle users who buy books on Amazon, and a good chunk of them may consider other e-ink devices without loosing acces to their libraries. Could you possibly test this with future e-ink devices which run on Android? Or did you do it already, and does it work?
