I’ve had this about 6 hours and…
The power pack is massive and the power lead is too short and stiff.
The tripod won’t go to 90° and is so loose the stiff power lead causes it to slowly move or prevents you from putting it in the position you want in the 1st place.
The android OS is crap, should have gone for Android TV like every other manufacturer is doing or a mashup with Kodi or similar. TBF I should have known better, Philips have always been shit with interfaces in my experience (TV, bluray, radio).
NowTV app doesn’t work, which is where I want to stream movies from. Philips would no doubt spout the old ‘that’s down to the app developers’ but I have this on numerous other android devices, some I’ve sideloaded it on to, without issue. One of the main selling points was that it could be a standalone device so it should be compatible.
Aptoide - absolute piece of shit, 10 versions of every app, no idea what’s compatible and what isn’t. It also doesn’t get on with my BT broadband / router so I can only download by connecting to my phone’s hotspot.
Phone mirroring from my S9 is rubbish. Video is unwatchable, sound is terrible, it goes off if you expand an app group.
I plugged in a kodi stick to try and bypass the OS and eliminate most of the issues. But now I find that the hardware has let me down as the picture is now wonky and the bluetooth won’t work! WTF?
In fairness the picture quality and brightness is better than I thought it would be but honestly that’s not enough, others will match it soon enough. Unless the OS / app and keystone issues are sorted out soon it’s going back. Also what is with the crap tripod? This really doesn’t seem like £500 worth of projector.
