Sprint Live Pro Review
The Sprint LivePro is a touchscreen Android projector hotspot. It is manufactured by the Chinese firm ZTE. The device is available for $300 along with a contract for two years. The LivePro offers a wide range of services making is useful in several areas. However, the niche market for a device like the LivePro may be very small in size.
The LivePro looks like a box which does not seem attractive at first glance. It can easily be carried inside the pocket of a business suit, a purse or even a roller bag.
In comparison, the LivePro seems like a larger version of Apple TV. The weight is 14.1 ounces.
The LivePro features a projector, media player, smart device, mobile hotspot and a battery charger for external devices. ZTE wanted to put all the things together so that people who want to enjoy movies and media during a road trip can utilize this gadget.
The 800 x 480 display is less than satisfactory. The viewing angles are not good enough. The screen is laid out in a manner that allows very small room to work with. If you need to type an e-mail, the keyboard will block the text field and you will be forced to minimize it if you want to see what you are typing.
The buttons situated below the display only add to the awkwardness of the device. Fist, there are the three main buttons menu, home and back. Then, there are two more for starting the projector, turning on the display. Lastly, there are separate buttons for volume control.
On the left hand side of the device, there are more buttons for power and power bank. There is a dial for focus adjustment of the projector. There is a concealed tab that covers the SIM and SD card clots. The SD slot can support 32 GB cards.
There is a connector port for 12V power output at the bottom of the device. You will also find the USB port, headphone jacks and HDMI at the same spot. For wireless mirroring, miracast support is also available with the device. Bluetooth 4.0 is also included. The LivePro can only work with Sprint frequencies so there is no question of taking it when you embark on your world tour.
The projector is the main aspect of the LivePro. This is the main selling point of the device because there are plenty of slim smartphones that feature all the aspects of the LivePro. These devices are usually very small in size and do not take a lot of space either. ZTE has tried to capture the imaginations of a niche market with its projector: professionals who are constantly on the move and need to give presentations to their superiors or clients.
The projector features a 100-lumen DLP bulb which produces a picture that is reasonable enough. The LivePro, however, cannot be used as a home cinema. The projector is ideal for documents, presentations and demos. The native resolution is 854x480 and the projected display is around 120 inches. It gives optimum performance is a dark environment.
The LivePro features loud speakers, however, it is a good idea to keep a set of Bluetooth speakers handy because there is a lot of noise created by the built-in fans.
