Differences Between XGIMI Halo and Halo+
By XGIMI Tech - 2022-02
If you’re interested in movies and enjoy yourself in your backyard, then an outdoor projector is the best choice for you. If you’re a traveler and always out on the road, then you will need a portable projector that can be set up in minutes, whereas someone who loves playing games will want a better picture and sound quality to enjoy the game.
A capable, light, portable, and mini projector becomes your companion as you conquer the world. XGIMI has managed to bring two such models that do not suffer from poor sound, lighting, and problematic interfaces. Halo and Halo+ have a few differences that make them stand out from each other, and this piece of writing will help you choose between the two outdoor projectors.
Looking at Halo and Halo+ side by side, it would be difficult to tell the difference as they both measure 4.46 x 5.70 x 6.75 inches and weigh 3.5 pounds. Their rectangular and minimalist design helps you carry these mini projectors anywhere you want.
As it’s compact enough, you can toss any of these portable projectors in your bag and take it to a game tournament, to a movie with your friends outdoor, or meeting away from the office.
A portable projector needs to have a built-in battery that is present in both Halo and Halo+. With a powerful 59.454Wh built-in battery, these outdoor projectors deliver the best quality you need when going places. The estimated power time is 2-4 hours when fully charged.
What makes Halo+ differ from Halo is the Intelligent Screen Adaptation (ISA) technology. Halo provides autofocus and 4 point keystone correction. The forty-plus automatic/manual keystone correction gives you crystal-clear picture quality.
Halo+, on the other hand, gives you auto screen alignment, auto intelligent obstacle avoidance, and auto keystone correction along with autofocus. It simplifies setup, usability and aligns the image with the projection area based on the angle it is placed. The Intelligent Obstacle Avoidance is automatic and helps scale your projection to avoid any hindrance.
Image quality is important for people in any field. Whether you’re a gamer or a businessman who wants to show a video related to a business plan to clients, you need everything to be displayed right in front of you in very nice quality. Without compromising, compare each of the features delivered by Halo and Halo+ and decide along the way.
When looking at the brightness provided by each of these outdoor projectors, then there is a slight difference between the two. Halo offers 800 ANSI lumens, and Halo+ offers 900 ANSI lumens. Both of these help during different times of the day. When used in a room with a lot of ambient light or the backyard during the day, it would be better to get Halo+ which offers more ANSI, thus more brightness.
Both portable projectors feature native 1080p resolution and support 4K, so you will have no problem dealing with blur images.
The screen of Halo and Halo+ can range from 40” to 120”, and can be as large as 200” screen, respectively. It is still not a big difference, and you can move both Halo and Halo+ a little back and get a larger image easily.
X-VUE 2.0 Image Engine
XGIMI X-VUE 2.0 is the strength behind its visual clarity and beautiful colors. Halo+ has the X-VUE 2.0 imagine engine that increases the clarity and fidelity of the picture dynamically. You can also enjoy smooth and realistic colors, giving you the best user experience.
If you want to buy a projector for movie nights, then the Halo will be a good mini projector for you, as it gives you a similar brightness with Halo+ at night but costs less. However, if you have higher requirements for image quality, Halo+ would be more suitable, as the X-VUE 2.0 image engine is a powerful image enhancement tech.
The Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation (MEMC) Technology is only present in the Halo+ projector. XGIMI’s exclusive 60Hz MEMC technology prevents image flutter and tailing when you want to project a dynamic image. Whether you are watching an action movie, a tournament, or playing your favorite game, then you should rest assured that this mini projector will make sure that the visual remains clear and sharp, even in the heat of action.
The HDR10 technology is available in both Halo and Halo+ projectors giving you an impressive contrast ratio whether you are in a dark or a bright environment. XGIMI allows you to enjoy the content in full detail and any time of the day, with the right brightness.
Who doesn’t like to dance to the original soundtracks of their favorite games or movies? Halo and Halo+ both have two 5W built-in Harman Kardon speakers giving you the same base level of performance. They can also be used as a set of high-quality Bluetooth speakers. Hence, you can groove along with the rhythm and invite your friends over for a get-together without spending any money on purchasing external speakers, as you already have really good ones built-in your projector.
The only difference that can be heard is that Halo+ combines the Harman Kardon speakers with DTS Studio Sound Technology and has Dolby Digitalaudio giving you a full experience wherever you are.
If you want to experience watching every movie or drama in a theatre, then you must opt for the Halo+ or Halo projectors because they give you vibrant, accurate, beautiful sound and the best visual experience.
Both of these portable projectors run Android TV and support Google assistant. The Android TV keeps you connected to the world and becomes your source of entertainment, as long as you have access to WIFI. Their remote controllers can be operated with your audio too.
Halo and Halo+ are powered by Android ATV ™. With more than 5000+ native applications, now you can install your favorite games, streaming apps, and more.
Google Play is already installed along with YouTube, Showtime, and HBO. Chromecast in both of these outdoor projectors lets you cast your applications, content, and games directly to your portable projector from your device. This becomes easy if you’re somewhere far from home.
The system opens doors for you as its multilingual interface supports a total of 52 languages. So now you do not have to worry if you don’t speak English or you’re comfortable with your native language. What sets Halo+ apart from Halo is that this mini projector makes sure that the Game Mode Boost provides high refresh rates and 26.5ms low latency engaging you so that you can enjoy every graphic and sound as if you are in the game. This mode also fuses stellar resolution and sound to give you an amazing experience.
Your Needs Come First
Imagine you’re going camping with your friends and you need the best projector for movie nights or you’re a businessman who has to deal with clients daily, you must note that both of these require different features in your projector. The only advice for you is to list down all the things that you need in a portable projector.
If you don’t mind spending a little more on stronger features and image enhancement tech then Halo+ is perfect for you. If budget is not the problem, but you’re busy and want something that can be easily set up then Halo+ has better ISA technology.
Talking about sound quality without the external speakers, both Halo and Halo+ have the Harman Kardon, DTS, and Dolby Digital Audio giving you the best experience.
In terms of image quality, Halo+ again delivers better quality with X-VUE 2.0 image engine and MEMC.
A person’s opinion might differ according to their needs and expectations, so it is best if you take the time to think about all the things that you need in an outdoor projector.
