If you’re someone who enjoys capturing the special moments spent together with your friends and family by using your Smartphone’s camera, then you should definitely consider getting a digital photo frame. Unlike the “now-outdated” standard picture frames used back in the day that can only display one single picture, a digital photo frame not only boasts a large storage capacity for storing many digital pictures, but also has the capability of changing its displayed picture constantly by simply cycling through its stored images. Essentially, a digital photo frame allows you to show off all of your meaningful pictures in great detail, which is actually a much better way to relieve and cherish those moments than by having to go through your phone’s digital photo albums. Best of all, a digital photo frame can also add a lot of life to any bookshelf or countertop, ultimately giving you and your guests something nice to talk about. Now, if you’re looking for a digital photo frame for your home, then we’d suggest that you go with the Monster Smart Home Digital Photo Frame.

The Monster Smart Home Digital Photo Frame is a smart picture frame that features a 10-inch high-definition 1280p touchscreen, 16GB of storage space for storing up to 4,000 photos, Wi-Fi Connectivity, In-App controls, and Voice Assistant Support for both Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant.

Unlike smart digital photo frames from other brands that might require quite a bit of time for users to upload photos to their internal storage, this smart picture frame can have up to 100 photos uploaded at once to its 16GB memory via its Smartphone Companion App, which can save you a lot of time.

Best of all, the Monster Smart Home Digital Photo Frame also comes with an additional 6GB of free cloud storage.

Now, let’s have a more detailed look at this smart picture frame and check out everything that it has to offer you.

DESIGN & SPECS

First things first, let’s start with the unit’s size. When it comes to the device’s dimensions, it’s important to note that  the Monster Smart Home Digital Photo Frame is available in two (x2) different size-models. There’s an 8-inch size model available as well as a 10-inch size model.

For our review unit, we’ve decided to go with the 10-inch size model, which measures exactly 11.38 inches long by 2.44 inches wide / thick by 7.87 inches tall.

Regarding its design, the Monster Smart Home Digital Photo Frame features a stylish, ultra-modern and classic design throughout its Matte Black body, which ultimately gives this smart picture frame a truly minimalist and timeless look. The frame’s simple and discrete aesthetic basically allows it to easily blend in with the interior of any room, no matter if you’re looking to have it set up in your living room, hallway, or bedroom.

On top of its gorgeous design, the Monster Smart Home Digital Photo Frame can also be placed on any counter by simply opening up its Retractable Mount Support (integrated at the bottom of the back-side of the unit). Alternatively, you can also have this smart picture frame mounted into any wall thanks to its four (x4) Wall-Mounting slots (located on each corner of the back-side of the picture frame).

Durable Construction – Equipped with a Retractable Mount Support

It’s also worth noting that this smart picture frame features a solid and very durable construction, with no pieces or components coming loose at all, and that goes for both its outer shell as well as for all of its internal components.

Now, let’s talk a little about the frame’s main components. For displaying your digital photos, this smart picture frame comes equipped with a high-end 10-inch (26 cm) touchscreen, which features a high-definition screen resolution of 1280p by 800 pixels, thus ensuring that all of your photos are displayed in full color and crisp detail.

The frame’s 10″ screen works in a 4:3 screen aspect ratio, and its screen’s brightness also comes pre-set at a very reasonable level (meaning not too dim, nor too bright).

Just like any other high-end smart digital photo frame, the Monster Smart Home Digital Photo Frame is configured to have its 10-inch touchscreen automatically cycle through your photos and display those in order one by one. Alternatively, you can also use its touch-screen capabilities to open up the frame’s digital-photo memory storage in order to have it display a specific photo.

Then, when it comes to its file-storage, this smart picture frame also boasts a built-in 16GB memory for its storage space, which makes it capable of storing up to 4,000 photos in total.

Thanks to its vast storage capacity, you can easily clear space on your Smartphone after any time that you’ve taken some (or a lot) of photos, including times such as spending a day at the beach, a weekend out camping, or even a nice Sunday spend together with your friends and family at the park or at your backyard.

What’s more is that on top of the frame’s 16GB of storage space, the Monster Smart Home Digital Photo Frame also comes with an additional 6GB of free cloud storage, which can be used right-out-of-the-box with no subscription required (and this is something that not all brands of smart digital photo frames offer, so definitely a plus).

Lastly, we’d also like to notice that in terms of its power-source, this smart picture frame is electric-powered (and not battery-power), drawing its power from its dedicated AC Power Cable, which, just like the frame itself, is very durable, very well constructed and also easily malleable.

INTERFACE

Moving on to this smart picture frame’s interface, the Monster Smart Home Digital Photo Frame also features a fairly simple user-interface, which is designed for easy-navigation by simple using its Push-Button Controls, which are located close to the center of the back-side of the picture frame.

Integrated Push-Button Controls

The frame’s Push-Button Controls basically work as its Power Button (to turn the unit On/Off), Menu Button, Play / Select Button (for selecting a picture or video that you want to have displayed) , as well as its Forward Button and Backwards Button (for cycling between pictures or videos).

In addition, located at the right side of the frame’s Push-Button Controls, there’s also an SD Card Slot (supports up to a 128GB SD Card at most) that can be used to further expand the frame’s 16GB of default storage space.

CONNECTIVITY

For its connectivity, as said before, this smart picture features Wi-Fi Connectivity (supporting the most common standards – 802.11 b/g/n), which is what’s used to control the frame’s different functionalities via its Smartphone Companion App (meaning the Monster Smart App).

Wi-Fi Connectivity

On a side note, it’s also important to mention that regardless of what size-model you decide to go with (either 8-inch model or 10-inch model), the Monster Smart Home Digital Photo Frame also comes with its own pre-configured email address, which allows users to send their digital images directly to the frame from any Internet connected Smartphone or tablet.

THE SMARTPHONE COMPANION APP – The Monster Smart App

Finally, for controlling all the different display functionalities offered by this smart picture frame, you’ll be using its dedicated Smartphone Companion App, called the Monster Smart App, which is available to download for free for both iOS and Android devices.

Via the Monster Smart App (which is basically a photo-management App), users can easily and conveniently upload up to 100 pictures at a time.

Last but not least, thanks to the frame’s smart connectivity, users can also enable Voice Assistant support for this smart picture frame (via its App’s Settings Menu) by syncing it together with any Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant-enabled device.
