Epub reader for android

I need the following:

I don't read epubs on the phone; I just need something to quickly check the quality of an epub when I'm not on the desktop.

Try PocketBook:

It has two render engines (ADE y WebKit) so you can test your epubs with both of them.

PocketBook is my Android testbed. I have others. But it's least annoying. Works with Calibre via USB Mass Storage. An amazing number don't as they "import", so Calibre can't see what's in their "library".

Also I use kobo in epub2, never kepub. I have a Nook ST and a Sony PRS350 also for epub as well as two weird Binatone models, one is like a poorly done Amazon Fire (except the WH Smith and Appstore are gone), I presume it uses Adobe on Android.

This one ought to be a good one as well. It's using Readium and it's from EDRLab.

In principle, it will be able to use all the fonts you have in your Android device. Also you can define a path to a folder where you store the fonts you want to use, and of course, PocketBook will use the fonts embbeded in the epub. You can choose the font of your wish by using the PocketBook menu.

I would say the Kobo app for Android would do it.
