Contemplating a Boox Tablet - by This_Click4677 with 0 comments
Hello folks, Got a strange use case here. I’ve always spent a lot of time growing up / studying and now working on screens. Been very lucky, never had any issues, any headaches, eye strain or things thankfully. But since about last October I’m just finding it hard to spend time being comfortable on-screen outside of work. I’ve went from iPad Pro to one of the new Macs and it seems regardless of the device, there’s only so much my eyes and body can take of sitting at the desk, looking at an LCD screen per day. It’s not comfortable anymore and I’m thinking a lot of my other problems from anxiety to feeling better could be improved massively if I only used my working hours looking at a screen and tried to eliminate it outside of work time entirely.
I see the Boox tablets with Android 10 and I’m aware that they won’t do games, they won’t do videos. But other than this, what other key limitations should I know about?
My plan is to simply use my phone (of course, inevitable) as I do but outside of work to re-adjust my free time and life to favour reading of books, textbooks, studies, etc. and make notes / journal, to do email and a basic budget I currently to on Excel/Numbers. I could use some kind of reminders / calendar app that’s compatible. Is it practical to plan to use the Boox as pretty much a primary personal device? Or will the slow loading screen and lacking areas really annoy me?
What happens if you plug it into an external monitor, can you use full colour Android like for just the times you are plugged in, or does this not work? I used to have a Samsung DeX phone that did this. That would be a great help in making this a practical idea.
