A big thank you to LUMOS for sending me the device for this LUMOS NANO Projector review.
Delivery and Unboxing
The sneaky Ninja left the parcel at my door and sneaked away; at least the Ninja had the courtesy to message me that my package was delivered. I found a crease on the box, but the device was undamaged.
Straight out from the box, the LUMOS NANO resembles a can of beer. It weighs merely around 400 grams and feels sturdy on the hand.
It has most of the necessary connectivity options like USB, HDMI, and Audio-Out, and I wish LUMOS would use a generic USB C-type socket for charging. Hence, it is easier for me to find a charger while on the go.
The navigation touch-based panel is located at the top, which works like a touch-pad and buttons to control the playback and volumes.
I could find pre-installed apps NETFLIX and YOUTUBE, as these projectors run on the Android 9.0 operating system. The in-built Air Screen apps also allow screening whatever things from my mobile phone via WiFi.
The LUMOS NANO uses the Digital Light Processing (DLP) LED technology, which means it is bright; 1,500 lumen (on paper). You don’t have to worry about replacing the lamps because LED has proven its long life span and quality.
My missus and I watched NETFLIX on our cosy bed; we were satisfied with the video vibrancy cast on the wall. This projector comes with an auto keystone that adjusts the screen automatically from any angle. The projector battery depleted from 100% to 60% after we completed 2.5 hours of a movie; impressive.
We didn’t try casting on our ceiling because we have ceiling lights and fans around our house.
