I recently got a Capsule Max. I cant recommend this product to anyone, especially someone in the UK.
The hardware itself seems pretty good. But this device (and from what I can see is let down by shitty software. And considering the price of the kit, this isnt acceptable.
Android 8. Stripped and skinned and out of date. Not the end of the world but lacking in lots of ways now. Very little customisation allowed so the main menu has items that cant be removed and stuff that needs to be there cant be added. (Screen Mirroring for example)
Nebula Manager. I havent see the point in this. The apps get installed from the Play Store when they work. Some apps dont work until you install the beta firmware that allows access to Google Play
Video resolution. The image us supposed to be 1280x720 but if youre on iplayer you dont get that if youre streaming with no options to increase it. The device can cope.with playing content at this size so I’m guessing the app is restricted. Netflix is the same once you fudge it kn there. Smart TVs from 2014 have a better UI and experience here.
Battery life seems to overestimated from my experience. I’ve had less than 4 hrs in Battery Mode.
There are loads of other little niggles with this device but the biggest problem controlling it. Youve got the buttons in the top and the remote which are fine. Until you realise you’re told you can’t use them as the apps youre using are the mobile apps that are designed around a touch UI and you need to switch to mouse mode. And then we come to the Nebula Connect app. Which is better than the remote for some things but not all, and takes too long to constantly reconnect to the app if you switch away from it.
Thanks Nebula. If anything this projector has made me realise you can polish a turd. Then pop it in a beer can and sell it as a Capsule Max.
