I mostly use my phone as a watch and alarm.

I recommend getting a proper ebook-reader, with e-ink. It's a lot more pleasant to read. Much easier on the eyes ...and you can put in manga in it, too, which also works great (as long as it's all black-and-white)
Granted, it involves having an extra device with you, but...
(though why not replace the tablet with an ebook reader? I mean, what's the point of having a tablet, anyway? It's too big to fit in your pocket. If you want something that big, why not get a really small laptop, and thus have a real computer?)

And eh, what do I need a laptop for? I've got my proper PC for stuff I need, with a proper monitor and proper keyboard. Tablet is for internet surfing and reading, and is also the perfect size for reading manga on 😉. Used it for note taking, too. It's also light and cheaper than those mini laptops, if I remember correctly.

Ebookreaders come in various sizes ...and sure, they are kinda bare-bone and slow, but...
The e-ink screen!
No idea. I'm not a font snob, nor that up to date on the details, in regards to ebookreaders.
Edit: Did a quick search, and yeah. It would seem most that aren't all to old, allow for custom fonts.
What do you need a tablet for?
Surfing on an android/iWhatever is a maddening experience, the only rational explanation for, is that one cannot (at the time) access a proper computer to do it on.
There are plenty of laptops, of much the same size ...some of which can flip the screen, both in the sense of changing the up/down-orientation, and letting you close it, with the screen outwards.
Granted, a tablet is a bit more convenient, for reading ...but not nearly as good, as an ebookreader.
Can't comment on price, as I haven't looked at that, having no real interest in them, or tablets, myself.

Best mobile phone ever.
Only problem is, it's got very limited space for SMSs ...and it only runs on relatively old networks, so it doesn't work with all this 3G/4G stuff. Whenever I call, I get warned that it'll involve some re-routing.
I wish they'd make a new phone, that is essentially the Nokia 3310, but newer (and no, that abomination made by the modern people who've bought the rights to the Nokia name, that they released as a "new 3310", is nothing like the 3310, in any possible way)
Oh, and I do have an android smartphone, but that's purely as a handheld computer (never had a SIM-card in it). A replacement for my old Palm. Well, technically, I have two (I haven't gotten around to reading up on how to root the new one. What computer nerd can tolerate a non-rooted phone? Also downgrading the OS. I miss the days, back when upgrades actually meant improvement)
Apple products are all about the image of using an Apple product, rather than the actual quality or functionality of the product ...and everything is locked down and unmodifiable. It's supposed to be your phone, but your not allowed to mess around with it. Overpriced rubbish. (granted, android does set some limits on what you can do, unless you root it, and certainly has several other issues, but...)

It's funny because I think it doesn't matter in real life, but it does in manga -- or in any other form of fictional content. Fiction is usually more attached to conservative patterns than reality itself. That's because our culture is ever-changing -- in fact, it keeps changing more and more frequently and rapidly --, while fiction can't keep up with that pace. Plus, fiction hardly distances itself from the common tropes, ideal models and narrative samples because they are exactly what the audience wants. We all know that fiction and reality don't have to coincide anyway.

Oh, and as for this poll, I have an Android. iPhones were never worth it for me personally, but I at least understood their value... when Steve Jobs was alive. He was a perfectionist, simultaneously a good CEO (a terrible boss, but still a good CEO) and the best QA tester you could ask for. Since he died, the company's products have been sliding downhill fast. It's not like they're literal garbage, but they're no longer higher quality than the average android device (they used to be, both on hardware and software), even though they're still twice the price on brand name alone. It's disgusting.
