Design

it has a good-looking design. Its 8.57-inch display is sharp, bright, and vivid, and it is the simplest to set up. It measures 7.5 by 10.6 by 2.6 inches (HWD), with a 10.1-inch, 1,920-by-1,200 LCD. A small, touch-sensitive control strip sits on the top edge, marking the only physical controls. 

Ports

A power adapter is included in the box. Choose whether to position the Sawyer in landscape or portrait mode, plug in the power, and the stand clicks into place using magnets. 

Display

heir display is slightly lower pixel density (10.1-inches at 1920 x 1200 resolution), but still extremely crisp, bright, and colour-accurate. These new frames have the same touch strip, and they support the same Aura app capabilities.

Storage

They need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network to function, unlike frames that run a slideshow from local storage. You also won’t find an SD card slot or any other way to upload photos—the Aura Frames App is it. 

Share 10,000+ photos & videos worry-free with no storage limit. Easily invite family and friends with the Aura app. No memory cards, no subscription fees.

30-sec video

Videos can be up to  30 seconds and Aura says any video that can play on a smartphone is supported, although clips will be downsampled (if needed) to 1080p resolution and extras like HDR get stripped out.

App in Gallerie by Aura 10.1 digital frame with WiFi

The Aura frames are among the most straightforward of the bunch, and the Aura Frames App has been honed to be very intuitive to use. You do not need to be a techie to set up and use any of Aura’s frames, and they all use the same app. In fact you can easily interact with multiple Aura frames using this app.

The app also adds to the experience. It’s easy to add photos to your frame (or multiple frames, if you own more than one or have been invited to share with another) from anywhere. Just snap a photo on your smartphone and select it in the Aura app. Aura’s software does a great job of optimizing photos by screen and photo orientation, and even helps to prevent poor (blurry) shots from making an appearance.

It not only supports photo uploads from Google Photos, but the Sawyer is also Alexa and Google Assistant compatible.

How to share photo?

The Aura is incredibly easy to use and comes with simple instructions.

Start by downloading the app on iOS or Android, and then figure out where you’d want to put the frame around your house. There’s a small frame stand if you want to prop it upright on a table or shelf, which is what I chose to do, otherwise you can hang it on the wall.

The frame will have to be plugged into an outlet via micro USB port, so if you do hang it, there’ll be a visible cord — unless you have a cord management system in place.

After plugging in the frame, just turn it on and open the app on your phone or tablet. Once your frame is powered up and connected to Wi-Fi, and the app is installed, create an account and start uploading photos.

Setup

After plugging in the frame and connecting to WiFi, download the apps. Then create an account and start uploading photos.

The process of adding photos is seriously as simple — and similar — as sending it to your family group chat. The photos will start popping up in your frame instantly and you’ll probably be stunned by how vibrant and gorgeous they look.

Subscription

This frame comes with unlimited cloud storage, free of charge. You can upload as many photos as you want, and you won’t have to pay for a subscription. This is a big improvement from many cloud storage packages, which normally cost a monthly fee. Just be aware that the frame won’t work when it’s not online, since it won’t have access to storage.

Concern

Another major issue is that Aura digital photo frames need to be connected to Wi-Fi at all times to work. Unlike competing for digital photo frames like the Pix-Star that offer extensive offline functionality, Aura digital frames can’t view photos, play slideshows, etc., without being connected to Wi-Fi. There are no remote-control features or functionality either – so they’re not the most suitable digital photo frames for grandparents.

Alternate of Gallerie by Aura 10.1 digital frame with WiFi

Pix-Star Wi-Fi Cloud Digital Photo Frame

The Pix-Star has many smart extras. You can stream broadcasts from a number of international radio stations to play music over a slideshow, and there are many transitions available to customize image presentation. You can also set reminders, use the built-in calculator and play simple puzzles, Sudoku and other games.

The best thing about the Pix-Star 15-inch Wi-Fi Cloud Digital Photo Frame is its stunning photo quality. With the 4:3 aspect ratio on a 1024 x 768-pixel screen, images look crisp, bright and clear. You can make adjustments to the LED backlit screen for brightness, hue and contrast depending on ambient lighting.

This gadget lets you link up to 25 frames from a single account, where you can send and receive images and audio messages directly to and from connected frames. You can also view pictures from web albums, including Google Photos and Facebook. The frame has 4GB of onboard memory and supports USB thumb drives and SDHC/SDXC camera cards.

Overall, the Pix-Star is the best digital photo frame you can buy.
