Watching the neighbors' vacation slides on the walls of their wood paneled basement just got a high tech upgrade. This retro projector accommodates any phone up to 3 x 5.5 inches and displays your videos, photos, or text on the wall for all to see.

Simply slide the back compartment in and out to focus the image, then let the glass lens do its magnifying work--without the need to connect to a power source. The easy-to-assemble corrugated cardboard structure offers two slots for speakers or a phone charger, so you won't run out of juice halfway through that YouTube cat marathon.

I purchased one for me and my two sisters (they don't have theirs yet). I went ahead and put mine together to make sure it was gift worthy. I was disappointed that it required me to glue it together (I didn't have super glue like I said to use but so far the hot glue is working great!). It wasn't difficult I had just already envisioned it being assembled when I opened it. I enjoy using it, the sound is amplified well enough. Wish the picture was a little clearer, I knew it wasn't going to be like an electronic projector but I assumed it would focus a little better. All in all I do enjoy it and I still plan on giving the other two to my sisters : )

Unfortunately this products does not work. I work at a camera house and had our Engineer assemble it with me. No matter what we did the image only ever appeared very small and fuzzy. I have to believe the lens quality is the deciding factor between who does appreciate this product and who doesn't. Perhaps the quality of the lens varies greatly?

Anyhow, do not imagine you will be using this to show friends videos. You will put it together, struggle for an image to appear and then probably return it.

I do not recommend this product, at all.

Saw this in flyer, bought for 15 yr old niece. She us in to all iPhone accessories. She absolutely loves it !! McDonald's has a happy meal version, not as high quality (of course). We are planning a family get together for an outdoor, bonfire movie night.

          Comments about UncommonGoods DIY Smartphone Projector:

          I purchased this for my son because he likes to watch Youtube shows on his phone. It was very easy to put together. The instructions called for super glue, but I used a hot glue gun and that worked fine. My only issue is that the projection wasn't very bright, even at night in a dark room. It only uses the light from the phone's screen. They included some app info that may increase your phone's brightness, so that may help. I had my phone as bright as my settings could go but the picture was still pretty dim.

              We had 3 engineers spend over 2 hours trying to get this product to work. We tried several iterations of mirror placement, etc, but nothing worked. Sadly, we have returned the item.

              Service and delivery comments:

              The delivery was great, the customer service agent very responsive and helpful when I inquired about returning the item. I will continue to order from Uncommon goods.

                  Very sturdy, but picture quality is poor. We could not get a clear picture or one bright enough to see what we were trying to watch.
