Reviewing the Onyx Boox Nova 3 Color, a new all-colour 2021 eReader that rivals Kindles for comics, Manga and graphic novels. This Android 10 e-Reader can actually run Google Play apps and games, but it’s designed for enjoying books on that 7.8-inch Kaleido Plus screen. However, the Boox Nova 3 Color is pricey and also suffers from ghosting, which detracts from the overall experience.

Onyx’s display is bright and crisp, but the actual colour output is limited to just 4096 hues, while reproduction is rather muted. Still, you have full access to Amazon’s Kindle library, as well as apps like Comixology and Marvel. You can also side-load PDFs, ePUBs and other comic files you may already own.

Battery life is one of the highlights of the Boox Nova 3 Color, offering ten or so hours of reading on top screen brightness. Plus there’s Quick Charge support when you run out of juice.

If this eReader was cheaper and that ghosting issue gets sorted, it would be a fine way to enjoy Manga on the move. Here’s hoping future updates sort that problem.
