In the box

In the box, you get a smart frame, a mini USB lead, a 6ft power cable and a stand. UK residents will need a plug adaptor to use it, as it’s designed for a US socket and the frame must be plugged in whenever it’s in use.

In the mad world of digital picture frames, where a single-function device can cost almost as much as a tablet (and sometimes more), this is definitely on the lower end of the scale.

Dragon Touch digital picture frame WiFi 10 inch IPS touch screen HD display review

Build

The frame itself feels sturdy with a black plastic beveled frame and white matte surrounding. The lower right on the back of the frame features a threaded hole for the stand.  This shows the stand attached.

The circle on the upper left is the power button.  There is also a wall-hanger slot in the upper center of the back. The side of the frame holds all the connection ports.

Design

The Dragon Touch is a mid-sized picture frame that measures 16.6 x 10.1 x 2.4 inches. The depth includes the built-in stand, which can be folded up for transport or wall hanging. It weighs 3.2 pounds, which is surprisingly heavy for the size. 

From left to right (top to bottom when the frame is standing up) are the SD/MMC slot, headphone jack, USB-A port (for thumb drives), micro-USB port (for data connection), and DC power port. The media slots are for uploading only, the frame will not play from SD card or USB drive.

Control

As it’s touchscreen based, that’s how you control the frame. You can swipe, tap to zoom and access all settings. There’s no remote and you only use the app to email photos to the display.

Display in Dragon Touch digital picture frame WiFi 10 inch IPS touch screen HD display

The Dragon Touch’s display is a 10.1-inch touchscreen that serves both as a display and an input. It has a resolution of 1280 x 800, which is an odd choice. The aspect ratio is 16:10 instead of 16:9, so you’ll lose a bit off the top and bottom of 1080p photos. You can also share up to 30-second video clips to the frame, albeit with a similar limitation.

There are several options to to change display settings. You can choose slideshow timings and change the transition effects. You can also display a single image, if preferred.

Orientation

The Dragon Touch has a built-in gyroscope that automatically senses rotation. While there is an auto rotate function that allows you to display the frame in portrait mode, it looks much better in landscape. The 16:10 dimensions are just too long for this kind of display. The touch screen is responsive and its menus simple to navigate.

Storage

The Dragon Touch has a built-in 16GB SSD drive. This is a huge amount of storage for a digital picture frame. Assuming a 300 KB size per picture, it allows for an insane 40,000 pictures in total. The Dragon Touch 10 also features a USB port and SD card slot, so you can play pictures directly from storage. 

Share photos via email

You can also email pictures to a dedicated email address that comes with the frame – either via the app or direct from your email account. You can also allow other people to do the same.

Similarly, when sending pics from your phone, you can only send nine at a time and the process can lag a bit.

This feature may be enough for you to buy it as a gift, although the process is by no means as simple and instantaneous as the one for Aura frames, for example. You can only email a few photos at a time and when they arrive, the screen won’t alert you.

Family sharing

The same 10 authorized app users can also add photos via email. Just email your pictures to the frame, and they’ll automatically be added to the rotation. You can also add photos directly from any device on the same WiFi network. When you first set up the Dragon Touch, it will automatically create an FTP server. This server should automatically show up on your home’s network. This allows for easy drag-and-drop photo management.

Setup

The set-up process is straightforward: you simply download the free OurPhoto app and follow on-screen instructions. Or at least it should be. You can also enter auto-on and auto-off times so the frame sleeps when you do. In the OurPhoto app, we find options for taking photos or videos to upload, information about our connected frame, messages about file uploads and user requests, and access to files on the phone to upload.

App in Dragon Touch digital picture frame WiFi 10 inch IPS touch screen HD display

The Our Photo app is strangely designed. The top third of the home screen is a stock picture of a bedroom. It does nothing, it can’t it be swapped out for one of your pictures and it can’t be removed.

Apart from this perplexing design feature, the app is very simple to navigate. At the top of the homepage, there’s a settings cog, which takes you to your account.

Below it are tiles that allow you to take a photo or video to send to the Classic 10, look at your devices list or history of sent pictures. 

Added features

There’s a brightness adjustment, so you can tune the display to the right level for your home. On top of that, there’s an alarm function, which allows you to use the Dragon Touch to get up for work. There’s even an auto on/off feature, so the screen can shut off at night to keep your space dark. Keep in mind, though, that the Dragon Touch doesn’t have a built-in battery. You’ll need to keep it plugged in at all times in order for it to display your pictures.

Dragon Touch digital picture frame WiFi 10 inch IPS touch screen HD display customer review

The size, quality and easy of use is Excellent. I currently have this sitting on my Fireplace Mantle Next to my Samsung Frame TV. The two compliment each other well. I use this Dragon Touch Frame two show case my Cat Photos and as a memorial of pictures of my recently deceased Family Cat.

I want to buy more of these and then place them on the wall in a way that creates a Frame Wall, with different things on each Dragon Touch Frame. This would look great.
Getting the photos and videos to the Dragon Touch Frame is easy with the App and being able to have other family members or even friends post to it is a nice touch. My Family lives in another country so even they can send photos directly to the DT Frame.
The Audio quality is good for a digital frame. And the brightness etc is great out of the box too.

It would be a nice touch to have control of the Display and Audio settings from the App but I find it ok to have to do this at the device.

Having extra features like Clock, Alarm and Weather are nice to have as well.
The price is good, it looks great and does everything you need it to do as a digital Photo Frame and more.

You can stand it on a surface as I have, or hang it on the wall (which I will do when I get more of them)

PhotoSpring 10 has the unique advantage of two different visual frame modes: a traditional matted look with a black, gallery style outer frame or a streamlined modern look. After removing the top black frame, it’s easy to see how superior the plain white frame looks and how nicely it sets off your images, but it’s your choice and switching modes is easy. This frame is for tabletops only for now — no wall mounting unless you purchase a power cable with a 90-degree magnetic connector, which the company says will be available as an accessory.

Various onscreen controls are accessible via a subtle green dot at the upper right corner. It’s hard to discern at first — you may have to consult the instructions unless you find it by chance while poking around the screen — but once you discover and tap it, the current image zooms out to reveal on-screen controls that let you delete, hide, favorite, alter rotation, add to an existing album, adjust formatting, or mail images to or from the frame. A settings menu facilitates the management of cloud accounts like Google Photos for sync or backup or Flickr for sync. 

PhotoSpring’s flexibility extends to its mode of input. You can send up to 30MB of photos directly to the frame via email, proprietary app, text, photos app share button, or from a browser. All media uploaded to the frame is automatically stored on the device. High-resolution videos of up to five minutes in length (or 1GB file size) play automatically in an integrated slideshow, though the frame does not recognize Apple’s Live Photos as videos, only stills. 

The interface also lets you invite friends to upload images to your frame, change brightness and volume levels, schedule the frame on and off, and set up parameters for viewing slideshows and onscreen EXIF info for each image. We tested the Premium version of the frame, which features four hours of battery life, as opposed to the standard version, which you must keep plugged in. 

PhotoSpring is easy to use with most tasks accomplished with a quick tap and simple on/off switches — ideal for its non-technical target audience. Image quality is high resolution for the frame’s size, and because you can schedule on-off intervals, a motion sensor is not sorely missed.
