Cool [Q] Reading ebooks on tab s 8.4?

Since this device uses samoled screen I was wondering what the ebook reading experience was like? I imagine reading with black background and white text would be easy on the eyes and especially on the battery.. Also this high resolution screen must be awesome for text reading?
I'd rather have a tablet instead of ebook reader cause of the multimedia capabilities..


tnx for the input

Black background with white text is great but makes my eyes funny because you see shadows of the text in your eyes after you stop looking at the screen. Lol. I prefer sepia themes. It is great as an ebook reader though.

Agreed that it works very well as an ebook reader. Screen is great and very clear. Use dark theme to read at night with no issues. Do yourself a favor and get the app twilight for night reading:

Much easier on the eyes, and I never notice the shadows of text with it

Works quite well. Aldiko for epubs/pdfs.Komik for cbr/cbz. VLC for media.
