Alfawise A11 comes in white with few details in grey. After a quick search on Internet, it seems that regarding colors, white is the trend right now, it gives devices a more elegant and professional appearance.
This mini projector has only eight command buttons at the top and one lens adjuster at the bottom right. The lower part has four rubbers and a screw thread for height adjustment.
On the left side it has a TV jack, a VGA port, a USB port and an SD card slot; at the back, there is an HDMI port, an audio/video jack and a 3.5 mm audio jack. This short description should make you think that Alfawise A11 is perfect for chilling at home with your family or for professional environments like your office.

Alfawise A11 Performance
Recently, I had the opportunity to check similar devices, one of them was the H2 portable mini projector from Houzetek, this one offers LED technology, 2500 Lumens and a maximum of 1920 x 1080 resolution; in brief, the Houzetek H2 is basic (regarding features) but a very good option if your budget is a little tight but and you want quality. However, for a little bit more of money, the Alfawise A11 uses LED technology, so you don’t have to worry about high quality, it will offer you an excellent visual experience because it also has 2000 lumens, similar maximum resolution, and more features.
Even though you will not have to worry about opaque and blurry images (taking into account the characteristics listed above), so far a disadvantage is the lamp lifespan. You can use this mini projector for 8 hours straight with any concern, but after a few years, you will have to be ready for a lamp replacement.
The visual experience is not the only good thing you are going to enjoy, the Alfawise A11 has a built-in HiFi speaker, and this mini projector is compatible with other speakers, just in case you are not convinced about the sound system.
One of the most interesting features of the Alfawise A11 mini projector is that it is equipped with Android Nugat 7.0 OS, which is uncommon in mini projectors. Besides, it has 1 GB RAM and 8 GB of internal storage, with this capacity you can download some of your favorite apps, but it is limited to the basic use of YouTube and simple applications.
Another highlight of the Alfawise A11 is that it has a wireless connection. You can connect this projector with compatible Android tablet or smartphone and watch a movie from the comfort of your bed or couch, or if you forgot your smartphone in another room, you could use the IR remote control to do what you need because this mini projector has double IR sensor.
Compared to similar mini projectors from this brand, the Alfawise A11 do not support Bluetooth connection, but seriously? When you have an IR remote control, double IR sensor and Wifi connection; Bluetooth is completely unnecessary; you don’t need to move from your seat.
Now, you may think that some jacks like the audio/video jack and the TV jack are useless, and in my opinion, you are right.
As usual, projector is overheating. No matter the size of the Alfawise A11, overheating is not a problem because it is equipped with an upgraded cooling system with noise reduction, ideal for small environments where noise can be a serious issue.
