What device does /a/ use to read manga, I had a nexus 7 but it died and was looking for something to replace it.

Was contemplating the the galaxy tab s4, but is 10.5" too large a screen?

What do other anons use?

Ipad Air 1. As long as you can comfortably hold it you can never go too big unless you're reading shit scans.

Not as nice as the old Nexus 7 for long time reading sessions but it's still really good, never wanted to drop the kind of money for an iPad since I'd need to use shit software like iTunes to move files onto it too

If you're only using it for manga and internet browsing you can't go wrong with them. They can be surprisingly durable. Since release I've used it in the shower everyday to watch videos/read manga and it still works great.

A Kindle isn't bad. Probably your cheapest option if you aren't going to be doing anything intense with your device.

Except you are locking yourself in cancerous applel ecosystem.
There are 3 things that matter for manga: screen size at least 10 inch, at least 1920 pixels vertically and 3:2 or 16:10 sxreen proportions. You can get this significantly cheaper by not buying apple shit.

I am using a s4 right now to read doujins, it's not too big unless you have baby hands.

For normal manga I either order hard copies from jap amazon or read them on my PC.

you're retarded. 'cancerous applel ecosystem' is one of the most streamlined and feature complete across platforms (from laptop, to mobile, to wearable). and even the el cheapo 2018 iPad is better from a SoC spec standpoint then the flagship android tablet on the market. and this is ignoring the fact that android is ABSOLUTE SHIT on tablets.

>> No.189005646

I’ve played with the Android ones, they are choppy and honestly the “flow” is just not there. The android OS is just odd to me the apple OS is simpler but forget about customization and downloading apps not the in apple store.

I’ve owned the mini 2 and now a pro. The mini one lasted me 5 yrs and the pro is going for 2 yrs. honestly they are pricey but they perform well for everything I do.

Its also the best platform for jewing developers out of money and making sure people have no incentive to ever get anything put up there, especially for niche shit like manga.

shitposting is not a career you brain damaged twink.
and how many updates do flagship android tablets get before being completely forgotten about? 1-2? compare that to 5+ years of support iPads get. when your shit droid tablet lags when browsing and watching videos then maybe you should be the least bit concerned about specs and longevity of your brand new device purchase. moron.

>How does it look when reading low res manga scans

Really depends on what kind of gallery app you are using, the screen is really fantastic so if your gallery zooms the low-res image by default it will look really horrible.

I recommend using quickpic/f-stop.

>also is it good for watching anime on?

Fuck yes, watching BD on shit thing is a real treat.

Related question. What video players do you all use?

I was just gonna ask the same thing, I've always just used VLC because it works. I tried MXPlayer but apparently it's even worse now than it use to be. I also just noticed that mpv has an android release and was gonna give that a shot as that's what I use on desktop and it works flawlessly.

Which player do you use?

>> No.189007793

Use an iPad mini but if your only getting a tablet to pirate you should get an android tablet for Perfect Viewer and Tachiyomi.

I use mpv to stream from my FTP server on my pc to my phone, the slide controls are nice, I don't have to tap the screen to go back or change brightness and it's the only player that has consistently worked, lightweight and has subs and audio track select which is all I want

>Using a gallery app

How do you even do that, I used to do that but it was way to clunky and that was about 5 years ago, I use MangaRock now, it's pretty good and much easier to keep track of manga

Used to use my 6 inch phone, now I have a lenovo tab 4 8 plus.
it works great, I had a 10 inch before it and I felt like it was really too large to enjoy while lying down in bed, which is how I read.

I guess most /a/utists use MXPlayer then since a lot of screens posted here have the video file as the filename which isn't the default option for VLC.

>> No.189008138

>How do you even do that

Gallery apps are really based though, I can scroll through a bunch of thumbnails that's automatically ordered by their event names, the search function is great too as long as you properly named/tagged the doujins before you put them in the SD card.

I am a degenerate hoarder and I have like 11000 folders (300gb in total) worth of doujins/adult manga that I can comfortably access without using my computer, the only trouble is that since I am hoarding way too much folders the apps are starting to chug a bit, quickpic works like a fucking charm back when I still have around 8k folders.

In my own defense gallery app "just werks" for me so I didn't bother to go out and look for a better way.

I will definitely give PV a try though since the apps that I used to use is no longer working as well as they did in the past.

I bought a nexus 7 first gen 7 years ago for msrp, it died about 2 years ago and i've been looking for a 7-8inch android tablet replacement since and all I can tell you is how annoying it is to be looking at $200+ dollar tablets and seeing the same specs as the nexus 7 I bought over half a decade ago, its really a shame that android tablets are basically a dead technology. I think the best option is probably a kindle fire, rooted with a custom android rom on it.

Perfect Viewer is a bit weird at first but if you're reading from zip/rar archives it's the best thing available. You can set up zones of the screen at hotspots for certain actions to happen, so it's about as customizable as you want. It also keeps track of where you left off, which is very useful.

>> No.189008785

Mangarock is more polished. And unless you live in Klapistan it has a better library (including scans of official localized tank releases). Mangadex works just fine too. And iComic is a better offline reader than Perfect Viewer because it is is explicitly desgined for manga by an actual nip and doesn't have ugly woodgrain eye cancer.
