Nixplay smart digital picture frame 15.6 inch review

Build & design

There are different finishes available in different sizes. There is, for example, a wood-effect one in the 10.1-inch, but if you want the 15.6-inch version, then you can have it in any color and material you like as long as it’s black plastic. It’s a matt finish, and very unobtrusive, so it wouldn’t look out of place in most decors.


It’s both desk and wall mountable. There’s an included stand for desk/table mounting, and there’s a hidden wall-mounting frame behind a slide-off panel. A third option is to attach it to a VESA 75 mount — the wall mount is compatible.

Smart sensor

At the bottom-left-hand corner are two sensor windows that are slightly more obtrusive than I’d wish. One is for the included remote control, the other is a motion sensor, automatically starting the slideshow when it senses people approaching it.

Screen size & resolution

The display is a 1920×1080 IPS LCD display with a 16:9 aspect ratio. It’s obviously not the latest tech in terms of either resolution or display type, but it is typical for photo frames, and IPS LCD is the same that Apple uses for its non-OLED iPhones. I personally found the quality perfectly acceptable at normal photo-frame viewing distances.

The frame automatically adjusts to portrait or landscape positioning, and uses YouTube-style “frosted” color-matched edges for anything that doesn’t fill the full width of the frame.

How to create and upload albums?

Once you’ve allowed the app access, you can create albums. There are, however, two frustrations here. First, you can’t just select entire Photos app albums in one go: You have to re-create them in the Nixplay app. Second, you are limited to 100 photos per album.

Once you’ve done this, the photos upload to the frame. Another UI frustration is that there is no automatic progress indicator in the app, just a message reading “Content uploading… ” If you exit the album in the app, and come back into it, then you can see the photos that have uploaded so far, together with a photo count, but this doesn’t update unless you exit and re-enter. You do, however, get an indicator on the frame itself.

How to add photos in Google Photos album?

There is support for automatically uploading the frame with photos from your Google Photos account. Since I use the Google Photos app to automatically sync my iPhone photos to my account, that means it’s effectively the same as having a feed from my iCloud photos.

Hit the New Playlist option and then select Google Photos. You need to login to your Google account, and can then either select one of the Google-assigned categories or just your Most Recent 1,000 Photos. Once you do this, the photos will sync and become an available playlist.
