I’ve made no secret of my love for digital photo frames, something I feel every household should have. (Listen to my recent podcast episode, below, devoted to the subject.) Think about it: Instead of looking at just a single framed photo, you get to look at thousands in a never-ending slideshow. It’s a great way to actually do something with all those pictures you take with your phone.
As a general rule I steer clear of the off-brand frames, usually because the companion apps tend to be subpar. But this is a little different, as I’ll explain below. Here’s the deal: For a limited time, and while supplies last, thewhen you clip the on-page $10-off coupon and then apply promo code 6FDERTNW at checkout. It’s available with either a black or brown frame. Regular price: $130. This sold out quickly last time; it’s back in stock as of this morning.
The hardware is pretty straightforward: 10.1-inch IPS touchscreen, 1,280×800-pixel resolution (which is not 1080p, despite what the listing says), 16GB of expandable onboard storage. The image auto-rotates depending on the orientation of the frame, and you can set “sleep” hours to save electricity.
Odd though it may sound, software makes or breaks a device like this. The Aeezo frame relies on a third-party app called Frameo, which is available for both Android and iOS and has overwhelmingly positive reviews on both platforms.
With it you can add photos directly from your phone or tablet library, and invite friends and family to send pictures as well. (Update: I previously mentioned that this frame allows you to email photos directly to it and import photos from Facebook and Instagram. These features are not supported here. I apologize for the error.)
I haven’t tried Frameo yet, nor do I have any hands-on experience with this frame (again: yet). Aeezo is a fairly new seller on Amazon. Fakespot and ReviewMeta are at odds regarding the 50 very positive user ratings. The former says “insufficient reliable reviews”; the latter, “30 actual reviews and they’re all legit.” (Yeah: Confusing.)
My takeaway: Great price for a 10-inch frame supported by a top-rated app. If you don’t like it, return it.
