After reading comment on here, and hands-on actual Kindle sizing, follow-up reviews on few e-book makers such as Kobo, Nook, Sony, PocketBook, Onyx Boox...

My thoughts are:
0# Pace of e-book devices evolution is slow compare to tablets, pricey even for simple - yesterday technology (and device ends-up much larger than its tiny screen).
Only + pts is lighter than tablets.

1# Kindle Paperwhite 3 current having best screen, though 6 inch screen is kinda of small for me. (which is basically the screen-size of Kindles)

2# Kindle, Kobo, Nook... all uses different closed OS system book ecology, to lock you down to use only their book-resource library.

3# Only few e-books are larger than 6 inch, beyond 8 inch the device size seems rather too large for commuting reading and pricey.

So in the end, gotten a Onyx Boox T68ML:
- 6.8 inch - >30% screen space of 6 inch, yet right-size for 1 hand reading during commuting.

- based on Android OS access to Google Play allow cross access to multiple book ecology Kindle, Kobo, etc bookstores. Also support 3rd party e-book format reading.

-Sufficient high resolution dpi, almost as good KPW3, with back-lited.

- Can use MicroSD as expanable storage - upto 32GB.

For Android, get device with at least 1GB Memory, 8GB storage :for App speed, install apps & books storage, 300 dpi. If cost not a issue: I would bought a T76 plus.
Hi. Thanks for the recommendation. Based on your current experience now, will u still recommend this model/brand of ebook reader from warranty, price, capabilities and usage friendliness perspective.
Another query is do u have any idea if there is any shop that sell this brand, so that I can at least have a hand-on, prior to purchase

I think kindle paperwhite still stands out for the quality and price. I just got the 2018 version without ads here. https://s.lazada.sg/s.2crE it is the cheapest I can find.
If want bigger screen can look at oasis but pretty expensive.

Does anyone know where can I find genuine leather case for the all new kindle paperwhite?

Last time, I bought a very first generation of Nook's eink e-reader, it about 6 inch. Experience with it was very lousy, can't read pdf well, slow & feels that screen size is too small for me.

Decided to revisit e-ink technology after my Samsung tablet dies & really want to do some serious long reading without straining my eyes.

Last year 2018 dec, I bought one 7.8 inch e-reader from Gearbest after some review, so far so good on this China brand as it perform quite ok. Pdf on e-ink still readable, reading manga quite ok & it can install Android apps.

I wish for a bigger size but the more big size it goes, the more expensive it is.
