Are White Digital Photo Frames Worth the Trouble?


Are white digital photo frames any good?

If you’ve spent any time browsing for digital frames, you’ll know that white digital photo frames aren’t that common. Is there a reason for this? Why are white digital photo frames so uncommon on today’s market? Much of the answer to these questions lies in personal tastes. White devices aren’t all that common. For example, how often do you see people walking around with white smartphones?

White digital frames get dirty very quickly. The oil and grime from your fingertips build up over time and leave marks and stains all over your frame. This is especially true for free-standing digital frames as they’re picked up more often. Think about those stains around the door handle on a white car door – they can be very tricky to clean off.

Another key factor leading to white digital photo frames not being as common is their poorer durability. Scratches and the signs of wear & tear will be far more obvious than on darker or more neutral color digital frames. This means that white digital frames aren’t going to look as new after a couple of months of normal use. To combat this degradation, a good care & maintenance routine is essential. Try to avoid letting kids or pets play around with the frame, and don’t buy digital photo frames with touchscreens.

Closely linked to the above points is the aesthetic appeal of a white digital frame. While they may be immediately noticeable – over time, with wear & tear – they aren’t going to look nearly as good. The white color can also be quite distracting when compared to neutral and dark colors. Dark & neutral colors let you focus your attention on the display, whereas white frames can pull your attention away. Of course, the frame needs to have a good enough display to warrant attention – though this is seldom an issue you’ll run into with premium digital photo frames.

In summary, unless you’re set on getting a white digital photo frame, they’re probably not the best choice out there. There’s a clear trend in the premium digital frame market that focuses more on neutral and dark-colored digital frames. This is especially true for the high-end of the market as you don’t want anything to distract from their gorgeous displays – though personal taste does play a relatively important role here too.

Does Pix-Star offer white digital photo frames?

Pix-Star doesn’t sell white digital photo frames. The bright color tends to distract you from Pix-Star’s bright and immersive display. Pix-Star’s frames use a 4:3 display that perfectly matches the photos we take on our smartphones – meaning a more natural and uninterrupted viewing experience. It would be a shame to let this go to waste by pulling you away from the experience with a white border.

Another reason Pix-Star has avoided using white digital frames is its reduced durability. They found that the neutral color they use today is far more popular on the market. While some brands out there try to offer a broad selection of colors and sizes, Pix-Star has found it best to keep things simple. This helps you manage expectations – and helps you find accurate information for your intended purchase online.

Pix-Star was the company that created the idea of having a digital photo frame with a dedicated email address. This unlocked a whole new level of functionality and made the Pix-Star frame one of the best options on the market. Today, Pix-Star’s digital frames are extremely capable and versatile premium frames. Their price point is excellent and they’re able to send/receive photos from anywhere in the world (via the Pix-Star Snap mobile app, web dashboard, and email).

Pix-Star’s digital frames come as either a 10-inch frame or a larger 15-inch digital photo frame. Both options have the same features and functionality. They’re excellent choices for families and offer unique features like the ability to be remotely controlled and managed from anywhere in the world, connect to & sync photo albums from social media & photo-sharing sites, and much more. Pix-Star’s frames offer great value for money and performance that’ll last for several years!

How to clean a white digital photo frame?

One of the biggest problems with white digital photo frames is how often they need to be cleaned. Make sure to only use light soaps or window cleaning liquid (depending on the material finish of the frame’s white-colored areas). Use a damp cloth that won’t drip any liquid onto the display or around the frame as most digital frames aren’t waterproof.

Don’t scrub too hard as you don’t want to ruin the frame’s finish. Avoid wetting the display too much and make sure that you wring as much water out of the cloth as possible. Don’t use strong soaps and don’t wipe the frame down too often. If this seems like a lot of work, you should consider getting a neutral-colored digital frame like the Pix-Star 10 or 15-inch digital photo frame.

Where to mount white digital photo frames?

The best place to set up a white digital photo frame is on the wall. They shouldn’t be rested on flat surfaces as they’ll be touched often and moved around – leading to poor longevity and early signs of wear & tear. When wall mounting a digital photo frame, be sure to keep it out of direct sunlight to avoid overheating or discoloring the frame’s finish. Also be sure to keep it away from hot, humid, and wet areas like some parts of the kitchen and in bathrooms.

Can white digital photo frames be changed to another color?

With some digital photo frames, you can buy or make a case that covers the frame’s bezels. While this isn’t very common, it’s a great way to change the color of your frame. Just make sure the case or DIY case doesn’t block the USB/SD card slots and the power inlet port.

Alternatively, you could paint the frame’s borders and bezels if you’re the artistic type. This is quite time-intensive and can potentially damage the frame if you’re not careful – though it’s a great way to get a unique and personalized finish on your frame. Tape up the display and over any cracks to avoid paint or liquids from seeping into the frame’s internals.
