BSIMB digital picture frame reviews

Design

BSIMB digital picture frame is black and the BSIMP logo is in bright white on the frame. It measures at 10.43 x 7.24 x 0.94 inches and it weighs 12 ounces.  I also liked the multiple options they gave to connect to device like USB, WIFI, etc.  You plug it into a wall socket for power. 

Display

This digital picture frame is really cool. It’s motion sensor works well and starts showing pictures whenever someone walks by. BSIMB smart digital frame is featured with 1280 x 800 HD screen in IPS extra-wide viewing angle display. Touch screen makes it super easy to use.

Storage

The frame can store up to 40,000 pictures with built-in 16 GB storage. It also supports Micro SD card and USB drive (up to 32 GB) for the extended storage if needed. 

Photo share

The app works great for directly sending pictures to the frame, and was very easy to set up. I can upload the pictures, videos and music and wherever this frame is, it will automatically syncs with the device.

App

BSIMB digital picture frame app is easy to use. I get text messages all the time about how excited they are to see a new picture pop up. It’s more tablet than frame I’d say, with weather and time on constant display. 

The controls to change your preferences are easy to navigate with the touch screen. You are able to change slideshow duration (from 5 seconds to 5 minutes), slideshow transition effect (4 choices and random), motion sensor duration (30 seconds to 30 minutes, or continuous display), dual screen, auto-rotate, etc. Settings keep even if the frame is powered off.

Pros

+Vibrant smart display

+Chic contemporary design

Cons

-Fixed stand is too big for some shelves-Sleeps after an hour without motion

Up front, the 10-inch display is vibrant and responsive, with good detail and colour reproduction. The panel is quite reflective, but there’s enough brightness to counter glare – though this dips when viewing from a 45-degree angle.

Primarily a device for calling friends and family, Facebook’s social screen does a side-gig as a slick digital photo frame. Styled like a floating box frame with neat lines and a quality finish, it’s an attractive fit for contemporary shelves – provided there’s space for the supporting leg. The stand can prop the Portal in portrait or landscape, but it sticks out by 12cm – and the power cable exits from its end, so it can’t sit flush against your wall. 

Setup is straightforward and the slick touchscreen interface is matched by the polished partner app. Photos can be sourced from Facebook, Instagram or your smart device, then sorted into albums which can be individually enabled. 

You do need a Facebook or WhatsApp account to activate the Portal, which will be a negative factor for some – but with Alexa, Spotify and family apps included, it’s certainly a feature-packed frame.

You can’t change how the Superframe slideshow is sorted or tweak the transition style, though – only the duration of each slide. Nor can you extend the sleep setting beyond an hour: if the Portal’s sensor doesn’t detect motion for 60 minutes, it’ll automatically sleep. Not a major issue, unless you position the Portal on a high shelf or in a far corner where it misses any movement.
