Good e-Reader is now an official distributor of the Taiwanese e-Reader and e-note company, HyRead. This company has a number of products in their portfolio, such as the HyRead Gaze Plus, which is a 7.8 inch e-note and the HyRead Gaze X Plus, a 10.3 inch e-note. One of the main reasons why we have partnered with them is because their devices have English on them, which makes them extremally relevant to our audience. They also have Google Android 11 and have the ability to sideload in apps or alterative bookstore. Speaking of books, you can load in your favorite apps, and there is also a bookstore preloaded on the device, although it primarily has Chinese titles, but English ones are on the way. Not only are we carrying the devices, but also all of the accessories, such as cases, screen protectors and replacement nibs.
The Hyread Gaze Note Plus features a 7.8 inch E INK Carta e-paper display with a resolution of 1404×1872 with 300 PPI. The WACOM enabled screen is compatible with the stylus that comes with it and has 4096 degrees of pressure sensativity. You will be able to read in the dark via the front-lit display and also has warm light with amber LEDs. You can upgrade the performance of the Gaze with turning on A2 mode allows you to quickly refresh the screen, perform partial refresh for the content, shorten the screen refresh time, and produce slight afterimages. Therefore, A2 mode is suitable for browsing web pages or reading comics, which can increase the smoothness of visual perception and reduce the flickering phenomenon of full screen refresh.
