XGIMI MoGo Pro review: A convenient but expensive 1080p portable Android TV projector

A few weeks ago, I reviewed the XGIMI MoGo, a device that belongs to a rare breed of portable projectors with Android TV. A more expensive version, the MoGo Pro, is now available. It keeps most of the same specs and features, but ups the resolution to 1080p instead of 540p, and raises the brightness from 210 to 300 ANSI Lumens. The result is a sharper, slightly brighter image that makes this the best Android TV projector currently available. Whether it's worth the price hike, though, is a different story.

(Update: Now available) Philips releases 24" Android TV made for your kitchen

Assistant-powered Smart Displays aren't the perfect kitchen device for everyone — they have a few limitations with what sort of content they can stream, and you can't just plug them in to watch cable (if you have it). In many cases, a tried-and-true TV is the best solution, and Philips new 24" Android TV means you won't have to give up any smarts, either.
