Review: Philips Screeneo S4 1080p HDR DLP Short Throw Projector

Philips Screeneo S4 Full HD projector uses DLP technology . The projector does accept Ultra HD sources, but it downscales it to Full HD. HDR10 is also on the list of supported formats.
It is supplied with an LED light source that should be good for 1,800 lumens. A huge benefit is the lifespan of the LED lamps, they last up to 30,000 hours. The projector also takes only a couple of seconds to start, not like classic UHP lamps, they are almost immediately at full brightness.The Screeneo S4 menus did not show too many options for editing the image, and that is noticeable we also during the image processing tests. De-interlacing is outstanding, but the projector has problems detecting less popular movie and video frame rates. For that reason, you should provide progressive video (720p, 1080p, 2160p) to prevent kicking and combing results.
The Full HD image does not have the finest vertical resolution, and in the built-in image presets the sharpness is a little bit too high, so you can there sees false detail. Because the projector has no options to eliminate noise, that extreme sharpness can also accentuate noise. Play your favorite songs directly on the projector. Use your Screeneo as a Boombox by connecting your smartphones or any other Bluetooth device to have fun with great sound.
The Screeneo S4 has excellent assets, but the finish leaves much to be desired. The mixture of an older Android TV version and the Aptoide application store definitely does not provide a problem-free user experience, even though the issues are pretty much never a deal breaker. The clunky menu layout and limited image settings limit the maximum image quality you get from the projector. Yes, the projector supports HDR, but the colors are not always a good choice because of the intense colors. You don’t get ideal Full HD fine detail, possibly because of to a average lens. Lastly, there is a lot of competitors in this segment and for this reason the price looks like a bit too high for all of us.Philips Screeneo S4 Full HD projectorOn the other hand, the projector however has a lot to offer. It is sleek and stylish and powerful, and an superb option if you want to take it with you to friends or families. Despite the difficulties of the operating system, the built-in media players and streaming services are good value. The LED light source provides a generous portion of light, the projector has a solid contrast and the image is optimized for use in ambient light. A large white-colored wall is all you need to produce an intensive image.
