The Best Photo Frame Digital You Can Get Your Hands On!


What to look for in the best photo frame digital display?

The first and arguably most important feature to look for in the best photo frame digital display is resolution. Make sure the frame’s display has at least an 800×600 resolution to avoid blurry and/or pixelated photos.

While it may be tempting to go for the highest display resolution, bear in mind that there’s a balancing act with diminishing returns at play. Most of the time you view a digital frame, you’ll be at least a couple of feet away. You aren’t going to notice the difference between a 1024×768 display and a higher resolution 1080p display.

Higher resolution panels are more expensive, leading to features being sacrificed to keep the frame competitively priced. We recommend a 1024×768 display (or similar) to be the sweet spot between quality and value for money.

Another key feature to look for in the best photo frame digital display is a 4:3 aspect ratio. Since most modern smartphone cameras use a 4:3 sensor, you won’t need to edit, crop, or resize photos before sending them to your frame. Most premium frames rely heavily on their mobile app for fast, on-the-go, and bulk photo sharing.

If you send a 4:3 photo to a digital photo frame with a 16:9 display, the photo needs to be cropped, zoomed, or even distorted in some cases, to fit the display. If none of these changes are applied, the photo is boxed in by black bars to fill the unused space – negatively impacting immersion and the feeling you get from a framed photo. Pix-Star photo frames have a 4:3 digital display, and are among the most popular frames on today’s market!

Are the best photo frames digital?

Using a photo frame with a digital display and Wi-Fi connectivity is a great way to share photos with everyone in the family and have them displayed on an immersive, photo-frame-like display. It’s like having a photo frame that you can set to display slideshows of your favorite photos and video clips.

Pix-Star’s photo frames have a digital display, along with extensive Wi-Fi and cloud features. For instance, you can use the Pix-Star Snap mobile app to share up to 250 photos with any of your Pix-Star frames from anywhere in the world. You can even set these incoming photos to display in the current slideshow as they’re received.

Pix-Star’s photo frames offer customizable slideshows whereby you can adjust their play order, and frequency, display new photos more often, include video clips, play music over the slideshow, and even remotely start slideshows from synced web albums. Web albums are photo albums imported from external sources including Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Google Drive, Google Photos, etc.

Families and elderly users can use Pix-Star’s digital photo frames to share and experience their favorite memories together, no matter where they are in the world. It’s a great way to stay connected and involve grandparents (and anyone that’s not very tech-savvy).

What’s the best way to send pictures to a photo frame digitally?

The best way to send pictures to a photo frame digitally is via a supported mobile app. A handful of the most popular digital frames have a mobile app that lets you share photos directly from your phone to any of your frames from anywhere in the world. All you need is an online frame that’s been added to the mobile app.

For example, with Pix-Star’s frames, you can use the Pix-Star Snap mobile app to share up to 250 photos with several Pix-Star frames at the same time from anywhere. You can send entire collections and folders for enhanced bulk photo sharing, making Pix-Star’s frames ideal for big families and those that want to get their elderly users more involved.

Can the best photo frames with digital displays play video and audio?

Pix-Star’s photo frames are one of the best digital frames for playing short video and audio clips. You can send 2-minute video clips and audio recordings from your phone to any of your Pix-Star frames from anywhere using the Pix-Star Snap mobile app. While 2-minute clips might not seem like much, it’s more than almost all other competing frames.

With Pix-Star’s frames, you can play videos in slideshows alongside photos, play music over slideshows from a connected USB or SD card, and even connect to speakers/headphones for enhanced immersion and better audio quality.

For reference, competing frames like Skylight and Nixplay both lock much of their video playback feature behind a subscription paywall. Dragon Touch frames only let you play 30-second video clips. Aura’s frames don’t support video or audio playback at all.
