You can choose what photos to keep or delete. The slideshow can be set to different settings such as the border, the time between the photos, etc. It also dims at night displaying just the time (low light, not bright at all).

It can be set up either vertically or horizontally. You can send photos through Google photos to them and I believe also iCloud. You can also pull photos from Facebook. You can add cute captions and add several frames to your app.

It’s easy to send pics from your phone to it and the pics are clear and bright. The app is very easy to use to send pictures to each frame. All need to have the app set up on their phones connected to the frames and can send pictures whenever they want and share daily pictures of grandkids.

 Easy to use

This frame is easy to set up, easy to use, and it’s been a fun way for our family to share photos. Once you’ve downloaded the app, all you have to do is touch a photo, touch the frame you’d like to send it to, and poof! Your photo is displayed in the frame. If you help someone set up the frame (maybe grandma/grandpa) they will never have to touch it and can receive new photos. You can also share photos without the app, by using the provided email address for the frame. The frame has an option to set up a time to turn it off and on each day. It can play videos and has sound for them, too. The display is clear and you can adjust the brightness to your liking. It’s fun to keep it in slideshow mode so that the photos display for 10 seconds and move on. You can set it to show only one photo, if you wish. All in all, this is a great way to get those photos out of your phone and into your living room to enjoy! It was a hit Christmas gift to connect members of my family from all over the county. We love it!

Pros

+Beautiful high resolution matte screen +Easy, non-connected set up +Supports images, movies, and music over a slideshow 

Cons

-No internal memory -Strict specifications for SD cards and USB drives -Remote is slow 

This model comes with a separate remote control, rather than a touch screen — so you don’t need to worry about marring the screen with fingerprints. It’s also very easy to set up and intuitive to use, as there’s no software or app connectivity necessary; simply plug in a memory card or USB drive, and it does the rest. It would appeal to a non-technical audience for this reason. 

The Atatat Digital Photo Frame impressed us with its visual quality, offering a vibrant display without artificially punching up the colors. While it’s a small screen, the widescreen format gives the impression of shots being bigger than they actually are. It’s quite a versatile design too, with calendar utilities and the ability to play images, movies and music over a slideshow. 

Bear in mind that there’s no internal memory though, so you’re limited by what your SD card or USB thumb drive can hold. Having said that, at less than $70, this is a great entry-level digital photo frame which will cover the basics and do it well.
