PaPa Pocket cinema is such a smart project, let us take a look at it yourself?
Sophisticated portable interfaces need to be strengthened
As a home projector, PaPa Pocket Theater in appearance with a rounded cube design, giving a sense of exquisite.
While on the whole the Milky mirror glass and gold metal match boxes, at first glance is also very generous fashion. Work is also good, edge seams and trimming processing comparatively delicate, no Burr, good texture.

As a smart projection, PaPa Pocket Theater equipped with some basic interface, in the lower part of the back is 1 x USB 2.0 ports, 1 x TF card slot, 1 x Micro-USB connector, one headphone jack and RESET reset port. These interfaces in addition to the PaPa Pocket theater with traditional projection functions, will also help improve the scalability, such as an external USB drive and an external hard drive for local playback.
But unfortunately does not come with HDMI interface, after all, in the outdoor scenes, AirPlay and miracast wireless network required to support the agreement, but also stable enough, and via wired connection is more convenient and practical.
Portability is an important characteristic of PaPa Pocket theater, less than a Palm size, and weight of 200g. Can be easily moved or carried out at home.
Abundant battery life need to improve
PaPa Pocket cinema fuselage has a touch-sensitive power switch, start easy, long press for about 5 seconds after you open the machine will enter the main screen of the system. Touchpad surface at the same time the backlight will light up, manipulating feedback is good.
Home screen UI uses the current mainstream box often used Metro style interface on the market, the overall simple, basic functions on the main interface, convenience and choice.
Operating at the same time, remote control compare with hand, experience is very smooth. But because of its infrared interface and projector bulbs in the front of the fuselage, use some limitations.
As a smart projection, PaPa comes with a WiFi module can be connected directly on-demand online video resources.
Online on-demand consists of two live television and Internet video capabilities. While both feature official content have been integrated.
In practical experience, either live television or Internet video, the effect is also very good, load flow, picture is good, resources are more abundant.
While PaPa Pocket cinema also has AirPlay and Miracast functions, Android users can also use "fast" App for wireless file transfers on the PaPa, also increased its ease of use.
On cooling, PaPa Pocket cinema was in line, after two hours of use in the tests and not overheated; while on battery life is mediocre, only around 2.5 hours of online video playback support. This is connected to pursue portable, after all, in order to light, its built-in 3000mAh battery.
After a period of time after the trial, PaPa Pocket Theater my first impression was nice and portable, you can easily move, their scenario has a lot of imagination. Second, the rich online resources, interactive is very smooth, which quality is also good.
But PaPa Pocket movie theaters as well as areas in need of improvement, especially in terms of battery life, after all, one of the main scenarios of outdoors, watching movies, suddenly no electricity also would be a letdown; and parts of its interface and projection also have room for growth. We look forward to the next generation of products will continue to bring us a better experience.
So, PaPa Pocket Theater position "1499 100-inch smart TV" also is a positive, though not as TV's picture quality, but in a portable and practical, value for money is also good. For rent, space is limited, or like going out and entertainment, while the large screen is also starting with populations in need are well worth it.
