Aside from EzPDF which I've been having issues loading large file slowly, I've just now tried Repligo and Mantano.

Repligo and Mantano both seem to render the images more quickly than EZPDF. I feel like Repligo is missing some pretty nice features found in some of the others. Mantano is looking like a pretty good option. Nice UI, fairly quick rendering of my larger PDFs along with some nice features. Although I feel like the text quality in Mantano doesn't appear as good.

For now, I'll probably split my PDF usage between EzPDF and Mantano. Anyone have any other pdf apps to try?

Mantano is good for handling large book libraries which would make it useful if you use your tab to read a lot. Repligo on the other hand is a more basic pdf reader it had less features and in turn makes it really fast and responsive

I think Ez PDF is the best reader but I have random battery drain problems with this app both on galaxy note and on galaxy tab 7.7 sometimes it goes OK and sometimes it eats up the battery, when this happens I check the task manager and is red with almost 50% of CPU usage.

I don't know what`s wrong with this app, it happens with pro, lite and Note version in several GB ROMs and now in HC with the 7.7

I'm currently using repligo with no battery problems and super low RAM usage

Anyone else with this problem ?

Do you mean EBookDroid? In any case, I'm really liking that.

After using ebookdroid for a few hours it's the best PDF reader I've ever used and I think I've checked out all of them, performance is great, no CPU issues and a lot of options to personalize the reader.

I'd like to thank jeslan and Theory for letting us know about the program

You can disable the page flip in the menu. When it is just a slide to the next page it works pretty smooth for me.

If you are using Amazon kindle app, pdf loading is not a problem.
