It puts you in control with an integrated AT&T 4G LTE hotspot and enough dual-band wireless signal to share that up to ten WiFi devices. It operates on Android 4.4 KitKat with access to the Google Play App Store and is a decent personal projector, for about $299.99, a qualifying data plan required for this model.

The ZTE Smart Projector has a 5” LCD display touch panel on top that is very responsive to finger taps, switching apps and setting up its projector functions.
