By the way, it seems that Mimas does not support OTG. I just tried the same usb-c flash drive I used successfully with Note 2 (therefore this is not off-topic) - nothing happens. And I see no option to enable OTG.
Well, it has a working card slot, and I have several 256 GB cards, so who cares
It probably would work with 512 GB as well.

As to note taking - I am very reluctant to try. Both Mimas and Note 2 have screen protectors included, so you know...
Besides, I would not know how good it is anyway.

Has anyone used both the reMarkable and the Onyx Note Book 2, and can comment on differences in the writing experience? From what I can tell, the reMarkable has been superior to previous Onyx models in this respect, so I am curious to hear if there have been any changes to this new model.

intro videos show that you can open 2 documents at a time and view them side-by-side. I would need to read books in VBK format with VitalSource app from Google Play store. Would it be possible to open two of that apps at the same time side-by-side (because the app does not have such option to view 2 sheets side-by-side)?

I remember reading somewhere that the side-by-side feature is limited to the Onyx reader app, so no, you can't have two arbitrary apps side by side.

It depends of the pdf layout.
A5 without any problem.
And 10,3" devices have the same screen resolution like 7,8" Readers.

I am thinking on buying the note pro(4 Gb ram) or the note2, and I read on some amazon opinions note2 is a little slower than the note. If its true it may be because of the android 9.

How fluid is the eReader?

And anyone knows if android 9 is really more cpu demanding than 6? If thats true I dont want to imagine a note pro when it receives the update to android 9

Here's a review from The eBook Reader: https://blog.the-ebook-reader.com/2019/11/19/onyx-boox-note2-vs-note-pro-comparison-review/
It was done before the Note Pro update.

"The Note2 is a bit faster for more advanced tasks like loading multiple pages of PDFs in 9-page view; it’s also slightly faster loading web pages and loading apps, but the overall responsiveness between the two models is very similar.
[...]
The bottom line is the Note2 is slightly faster than the Note Pro, but most reading and note-taking tasks remain the same speed."

I don't know if Android 9 is more CPU-demanding. Time will tel when the Note Pro will be updated to Android 9.
I guess that Onyx will release it only if they manage to provide a better user experience compared to 2.2.1 Android 6.

Thanks for the link.

Once I compared the Onyx Nova pro with the Likebook Mars running an AnTutu benchmark on both and this was very usefull to see which was more powerfull. Would you mind to run the AnTutu benchmark on your Note2 to see how this powerfull processor develops? If you do it you have to do it 2 times, one time in A2 mode and another time without being activated, the performance changes a lot

Thanks, whatever you decide
