The only (sort of) competitor to the Max 1 would be a phone that is connected (by Miracast maybe) to a portable projector – and you’d still get a poor man’s version. The PX747 isn’t as color accurate as some of the other projectors on this list, and the keystone adjustments leave a lot to be desired – but at the end of the day, you’re getting a 4K HDR projector for barely $1,000. What more could you want from a phone that’s going to follow you around for years on end? At $515, it is more than twice the price of the Lenovo S5 Pro, which is a superior smartphone, but lacks the projector and bevy of accessories. For a stylish ultra-short throw projector that delivers the best of the best, the CinemaX P2 is unrivaled. Combined with its stellar image, this makes the TK850 the most well-rounded device for everyday users, and the overall best 4K projector you can get. To help you save some cash, we’ve rounded up the best projector deals you can score online right now, with our picks covering a nice range of features, sizes, and price points.
We’ve compiled some of the best 4K projectors you can get today, and there’s one for every type of need. You can also read our picks for the best portable projectors if you are on the go a lot. Brightness is an important consideration, as projectors are typically darker than a TV’s LCD panel. There’s a 6.4-inch FullVision OLED screen up front that offers some vivid colors but struggles to amp its brightness enough when being used outdoors. That means colors will be bright and details will be sharp, making it great for games and movies alike. Furthermore, the inbuilt music speaker lets you play your much-loved tracks while enjoying this array of colors. While the Tab’s older sibling, the Tab 3 10.1, packs a 3.2-megapixel rear camera, we get a 5MP shooter to play with here. While you may lose things like smart features and decent audio, you’ll be getting a much bigger image. Design-wise, the Galaxy Nexus looks like what we imagine would happen if we stacked a Nexus S and a Galaxy S II and flattened them with a rolling pin. 3LCD Reflective is a reflective technology like DLP but, in this case, the light is reflected from a silicone- or quartz-backed LCD panel rather than micro mirrors.
B button is color light switch, press first to open, second to turn off. You probably have a set budget in mind already, however, but you’ll want to be aware of what features and specs to look for before you buy the first projector you find that suits your wallet. What’s more, while its £6,999 / $6,490 / AU$10,999 price might look steep at first glance, any TV able to deliver similarly large pictures would cost you tens of thousands more. The P2 also comes packed with a 40-watt soundbar that sounds pretty good; sure, it isn’t as robust as a dedicated speaker system, but it’s more than competent for an all-in-one solution. For a projector that’s going to be part of a more permanent high-definition home theater setup – one that will likely feature some sort of surround speaker setup along with an A/V receiver to power it all – you’ll want something that can be integrated into your sound system and that is compatible with whatever surround sound standard you’re using. Its dual watt speakers won’t blow you away, but they are serviceable for this tiny little projector. The Relay 4G’s tiny back-set speakers pump out sufficiently loud sound that stops short of tinny, even if we can’t call it clear or crisp.
A brighter picture naturally looks better and a projector with sub-par lumen output might not look very good even in a sufficiently dark room. You can get a projector for less than a hundred bucks, while high-end, theater-quality 4K projectors can run into the thousands. That’s a level of usability you just won’t find on most projectors. Most apartments also won’t let you mount a home theater projector in the ceiling. This feature won’t give you harm so there’s no need to actually turn this off. But with so many options on the market, there’s a projector that’s right for any setup. As is typically the case with Beats headphones, there’s no customization in terms of the sound. Samsung’s “Mystic Bronze” color for this year’s devices looks nicer on the Note 20 Ultra than on the Watch 3. The case itself has a more coppery hue, while the leather band on my review unit is closer to mauve than bronze.
