Smartphones have been around for over a decade now. In fact, the first Android phone, the T-Mobile G1, debuted 10 years ago today. It's not surprising that the category has seen some pretty horrible trends in that amount of time. We've compiled seven of the worst ones we could think of in this post, a couple of which are (unfortunately) still ongoing. Read More
Optoma Corporation is a company that specializes in theater equipment - projectors, speaker systems, and so on. There's no shortage of compact projectors that run Android, and now Optoma is throwing its hat in the ring. The company just announced the 'UHL55,' which not only runs Android, but also works with Alexa and Google Assistant. Read More
Slightly over a year ago, I reviewed Anker's first Android-powered portable projector, the Nebula Mars. It packed a bright projector and JBL speakers into a small package, and the $599.99 price reflected that. The heavily-modified build of Android 4.4 worked decently well, but app compatibility was limited, since most apps have stopped supporting KitKat.
Anker then released the $350 Nebula Capsule, a smaller (and dimmer) projector that doubled as a Bluetooth speaker. It was more expensive than competing devices, but it was also much better than all of them. The excellent build quality, decent projection brightness, and newer software (based on Android 7.1) made it a great product. Read More
Anker launched its first Android-powered portable projector about a year ago, the Nebula Mars. Since then, it also released the smaller Nebula Capsule, a sequel to the original Mars, and a Mars without Android. The two latter models, as well as the original, are heavily discounted for today only. Read More
Screens on phones have been getting larger and larger, but they're not really big enough to watch a movie with some friends. On the other hand, a widescreen TV or a home theater projector can get you a pretty great cinema experience, but you can say goodbye to any vestige of portability. A good compromise is something like a pico projector, which can typically project an image larger than all but the largest of TVs while still being small enough to throw in your bag. Read More
Last year, mobile accessory company Anker released its first portable projector, the Nebula Mars. It was roughly the size of a lunch box, with powerful JBL speakers, great video quality, and Android built-in. The hardware was great, but the ancient version of Android (4.4.4, to be precise), lack of Play Store support, and high price made the product hard to recommend.
Not long after, Anker announced a smaller version, called the Nebula Capsule. It's roughly the size of a soda can, and works as both a projector and a Bluetooth speaker. It's almost certainly the best portable projector you can buy, but it commands a high price. Read More
Anker released its first portable projector, the Nebula Mars, last year. It was a decent product, and the company launched a smaller version on Indiegogo last year, named the Nebula Capsule. Now you can grab the Capsule for $296, a savings of $53 from the original retail price. Read More
Anker released its first portable projector last year, under its new 'Nebula' brand. The Nebula Mars was a solid projector, but the outdated version of Android held it back. Anker released its smaller Nebula Capsule projector on Indiegogo a few months ago, where it quickly surpassed the funding goal of $50,000. Read More
Projector phones always seemed like an idea that made more sense in science fiction than in present reality, which is probably why the Galaxy Beam failed to gain much traction. Such as it is, the benefit of the Moto Mod design allows anyone with a compatible phone to add on a countless number of peculiar peripherals... one at a time. Now, at Verizon, you can get a free Insta-Share Projector Moto Mod for free when you purchase any other Moto Mod. At $300 off, it's quite the bargain. Read More
