Xgimi Halo Review – Portable Projector

With Android TV and the one-two wireless punch of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, XGIMI Halo stands out in a market that is becoming increasingly saturated with LED pico-projectors. It projects a Full HD image at a brightness that few can equal onto a screen (or kitchen wall). The Halo makes up for its lack of typical projector quality by being highly portable and featuring a cutting-edge autofocus lens, thus its lack of quality is irrelevant. It also never need a new lamp. The Xgimi Halo can run on battery power for as long as many sitcoms or a long movie, in addition to giving users access to a selection of entertainment and instructional programmes.

Don’t be frightened by the Halo’s 600 to 800 ANSI lumen brightness rating; it still produces more light than the majority of pico-projectors and operates effectively with the blinds drawn on all but the brightest days. In other words, the Halo is one of the few pico-projectors that brings everything together in such a beautiful, elegant, and practical form. Therefore, the XGIMI Halo delivers whether you’re watching a game in the den, a movie in the backyard, or the newest Vimeo dancing videos in the basement.

Our Verdict


The Halo’s specifications and standout features are attractive, but it lacks nuance. There are several portable projectors available, but the XGIMI Halo stands out from the competition in terms of quality of images, audio, and battery life. Although it is not a “pocket” projector, it is remarkably portable for what it can do.

The Halo is not particularly big and comes with a handy carry case with inside padding to ensure minimal damage during transport. It is designed to be portable. The projector itself is a somewhat tall cuboid with a metallic grey finish. It has a straightforward, appealing style, and I don’t believe it will seem out of place in either a living room or a bedroom. There are HDMI and USB 2.0 inputs as well as a 3.5 mm line out for powered speakers or headphones. Of course, an optical out for audio would have been nice, but this isn’t intended to be used with expensive home theatres.

A pair of five-watt speakers handle audio while an internal battery offers playback life of up to four hours. Since Android TV is installed on the device, you can use it to access a wide range of apps and well-known streaming services without having to connect anything to the HDMI port. You may stream content from your phone using Chromecast support as well. I was concerned that the 16 GB of internal memory wouldn’t be sufficient, but I installed every streaming programme I could find without any problems. If you download plenty of videos, your hard drive will quickly run out of room; however, you might simply connect a pen drive or portable HDD in its place.

Picture Quality

Sound Quality

The XGIMI Halo’s picture quality is good but not flawless, much like the rest of the kit. The projector can project an image up to 80 inches and is sufficiently bright for a dark room when it is plugged in at 800 lumens. If we’re viewing anything with predominantly bright visuals (like King of the Hill or Bob’s Burgers) and staying under a 40-inch screen size, we find they can even withstand 60W overhead lights in the room. The projector’s lumen output reduces to 600 when it’s unplugged, yet it still produces a sizable image in a dim environment. It functions admirably outside as well, however streetlights can impair visibility.

An LED-lit DLP technology is used by the XGIMI Halo to provide an image that is clear and bright. When expanding a 1080p image to greater sizes, grain can begin to appear, however even when projecting a picture over 75 inches, it hasn’t been noticeable. As we witnessed in Bladerunner 2049, the colours really stand out in brighter situations, which undoubtedly adds to the XGIMI Halo’s appeal in a casual home theatre scenario. The more vivid colours don’t seem to have any strange artefacts either.

The Xgimi Halo is quite different from the similarly priced BenQ GS2, which I had previously evaluated this year. It lacks the weatherproofing capabilities of the GS2, but it boasts speakers that are far more powerful and has a resolution that is twice. Additionally, there are improvements to the remote, the setup procedure, and the battery life. Additionally, the AF and keystone correction mechanisms are quicker and more nimble. Even though I had a good time with the Halo, I object to the price. I’m still not sure it’s worthwhile to spend Rs 90,000 on a portable projector when you could just buy something like a 12-inch iPad Pro with that money. Still, the Xgimi Halo is a superb product and well worth the price if you’re searching for a portable projector.
