I like 4:3 for an Android ereader. Any good devices after Samsung Galaxy Tab S3?

I'm very happy with the Galaxy Tab S2 running MoonReader but I was wondering if anything newer got put out at any point, that I might look at. It seems that the market decided that the 4:3 aspect ratio wasn't something people want in Android, and so there aren't many options, after the Galaxy Tab S3. Anything I'm missing though? (Of course iOS has some items like it, but no MoonReader.)

I suppose you want a colour screen? Otherwise, if reading is your main purpose and you're fine with an e-ink screen, the larger eraders by Onyx (Note 3 or Air, possibly also Nova if 7.8 inch is large enough) or Boyue (forgot the exact name for the larger models, Mimas I think) might be worth a look. You can have a look in the relevant subforums here. For 7.8 inch you now even have a few colour e-ink options (Nova Color), although they're still pretty pricey.

Perhaps not. I have liked having the regular tablet possibilities incorporated alongside my reading since I am pretty good about distractions, but a dedicated reader without colour is certainly something I am going to heretofore consider. Thanks for the reply!
