The only projector worthy of comparison is the Nebula Mars. For not too much more money (especially when Mars has a discount), you get 500 ANSI Lumens vs 100, 1280x800 resolution vs 854x480, 19500mAh battery vs 5200mAh, 10W JBL speakers vs 5W unknown speakers. So Mars seems like a better deal. However, I simply cannot get over the portability of Capsule. In my mind, this single factor outweighs all the rest of them. Moreover, Capsule runs Android 7.1 now and probably will get an Android 8 upgrade, while Mars still has Android 4.4. That is another plus for Capsule. Actually, the two seem to have the same processor, RAM and ROM, so maybe Mars may also have the updated software one day?
The Amazon page is missing most of the specs mentioned above. Instead of brightness, battery capacity and resolution, it mentions picture sizes and playtime. But the specs should nevertheless be there.
I have been using this device for two days, for projecting my screen when working, and for movies. When projecting 100" images, it is perfectly bright in a dark room at night, but is very dim during daytime even with the curtains closed. But I can always move it closer to the wall and make the projection smaller. At 30", the pictures are visible even in a bright room. So in terms of brightness, I would say it is very usable. There are two modes: standard and "battery". I assume the latter will make it dimmer. The battery life is amazing. The Amazon description says 4 hours, while the Indiegogo description says 2.5 hours. With the device set to standard mode, I could use it nonstop (steaming videos online) for 4 hours and still have about 30% charge left. It has automatic vertical keystone correction. There is no horizontal ones, but that is normal. It is suggested to work below a relative humidity of 85%, and does not seem to have any IP ratings, so using it in the bathroom may not be a good idea. To stream media from a USB flash drive, you have to use the provided micro USB male to USB A female cable that is about 2 inches long, like a tail to the device. While the setup does not look nice and the conversion cable is one more thing to carry, it is a pretty logical choice.
The device is very well packaged --- better than Apple products, I would say. It also comes with high-quality accessories, including a travel porch with the same material as those for Anker batteries, an Anker micro USB cable and a nice compact charger with Quick Charge 3.0.
The Nebula Capsule does indeed run Android, but it doesn't have Google Play and most apps that you'd want to use are either not available or do not work. For example, I was trying to watch the Olympics and the NBC Olympics app wouldn't install because Play Services aren't available. NBC Sports installs ok but doesn't work because it needs the user to log in via a web browser and the Nebula doesn't have a browser. The story was pretty much the same for all other apps I tried - they are either unavailable in the limited app store provided by the Nebula, they are available but won't install, or they install but don't work.
Now, in theory you shouldn't have to install any apps on the Nebula because you should be able to cast from your smartphone to the Nebula. However, casting is simply not functional from an Android phone - the Nebula doesn't show up in the casting options. Nebula support says this is because the App isn't yet verified by Google Play, but I'm skeptical because the Nebula does show up in casting options from an iPhone but the casting is super-flaky. Over the course of about three weeks with the device, I've tried to cast roughly 50 times. Roughly 50% of the time it simply doesn't cast, and the app on my iPhone just goes blank while the Nebule is also blank. The other 50% of the time it casts for a random interval of 1-10 minutes and then fails for no obvious reason.
Overall, the hardware on this device is amazing, but the software is simply not ready for prime time. I'll try buying one again in a few months, maybe.
