Say hello to my little friend!

Up your game with the ZTE SPRO 2

Pop quiz: What do you do with your boring, blank wall when your entire family loves to play video games together?
Answer: You turn that wall into 120 inches of gaming glory with the ZTE SPRO 2 smart projector!

“Dad, this picture is HUGE!”

First off, let me assure you that my pictures don’t do the ZTE SPRO 2 justice. If you’ve ever tried to take a picture of a projected image, you know how difficult it can be. But I’m going to assume you never have, because… why would you? Anyway, just trust me when I tell you that the video put out by this little beauty of a projector is gorgeous. No, it’s Gorgeous – with a capital G. The 720p HD resolution is bright and crisp. And there’s no need to constantly adjust anything because the ZTE features auto focus and auto keystone correction.

Look, Ma, no wires!

Did I mention that the ZTE SPRO 2 is portable? When we want to project on the go, we simply unplug and set up wherever we want, using the ZTE’s internal battery. It even comes with a convenient case to pack it in.

Stay connected

When they’re not using it to watch movies or play games, my kids like to stream their favorite YouTube videos on the ZTE. With the built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, we can stream video from the internet or from other Bluetooth-enabled devices, like our smartphones. The touch screen on the top of projector makes adding and using Android apps super easy. We had everything up and streaming within 15 minutes of opening the box.

ZTE SPRO 2 Features

For such a tiny package, the ZTE has a huge amount of other features, including:

  • 6300 mAh internal battery powers 2.5 hours of projection time or up to 16 hours of connectivity
  • Connections for HDMI/USB ports, 64GB Micro SD car, Bluetooth and includes 16GB of internal storage
  • Android 4.4.4 OS with access to the Google Play Store
  • Compact frame with premium casings measure 5.3″ x 5.2″ x 1.2″ and weighs 19.4 oz.

Final thoughts

We use our ZTE SPRO 2 every day. It has provided a huge upgrade to our family’s entertainment. The ability to place all of our equipment behind our seating area, and project onto the wall in front of us, is awesome. We don’t have to look at any ugly wires when we’re playing games or watching movies.

If you’re looking for a way to spice up your entertainment system, or you want to be able to easily game on the go, I highly recommend you check out the ZTE SPRO 2, available at Best Buy.
