Best Gift Idea Ever: Nixplay Smart Photo Frame

Friday, May 6, 2022
I've got the perfect gift idea for you!! Whether you're shopping for mom, dad or someone in between, you can't go wrong with the Nixplay Smart Photo Frame. I know you probably think you've purchased digital photo frames before or that they're all the same, but this one is in a class by itself. Read on for details and enter to win a Nixplay Smart Photo Frame of your own!

Disclosure: Nixplay provided me with a sample frame to review, but this in no way influenced my opinion. I would never recommend something to you if I didn't totally love it myself!

What is a Nixplay Smart Photo Frame?

Nixplay's Smart Photo Frame is actually America's #1 selling digital photo frame, with over 1.5 million units sold. They come in different sizes and models, which you can compare here, or visit the Nixplay website to see them all.  The frame you'll specifically see in this review is the 9.7 inch metal frame

Why is Nixplay Different Than Other Digital Photo Frames?

Many digital photo frames are just - okay - as far as quality and ease of use go. The images are not great and it's not usually easy to swap out photos when you want to. Digital photo frames of the past used to require memory cards or phone connections and it was a big pain, to be honest. Nixplay is NOT like that at all. There is nothing to plug into the frame from your phone, no memory cards, no memory sticks. All you need to do is download the Nixplay cloud app and connect the frame to your WiFi (which is actually really easy - instructions were very clear and done step by step right on the frame using a small remote control). Once your WiFi is synched to the frame, you can start adding photos right from your phone or from your photo storage. It has capability with most photo storage programs, including Instagram, Google Photos and even Alexa, just to name a few. I know, I know, another app, right? But I promise you this one is worth adding to your phone and you'll definitely use it with your frame. 

Photo Sharing with Nixplay

You can share photos from frame to frame! So that means if you gift a frame to a family member, you can share your Nixplay photos right to their frame and vice versa. It is an easy set-up through the app to add family members and the ability to share photos. If you have more than one Nixplay frame in your house, you can also share photos between the frame. The app allows you to set up more than one frame and control which pictures you show on each frame with ease. 

Order Photo Prints and Gifts with Nixplay

To top it off, if you want to order prints or photo gifts right from your frame, you can do it. The Nixplay frame is partnered with Fuji Film and you can literally order prints and photo gifts right from the Nixplay app. You can read more about that here

How is the Quality of Nixplay Smart Frame?

The photos displayed on the Nixplay frame are crystal clear. They have pretty transitions from photo to photo, too, not just fade-outs. It's like watching your own personal slide show! I love to create playlists to suit my mood (it's easy to change out what you want to feature on your frame by using the app- I have playlists for each season, our dog, our son, holidays, vacations, and more). 

Ease of Use (Remote and App Capability)

It seems like such a small thing but I love the little remote control feature. I can use this to choose new photo playlists, change settings, change the photos, turn the frame off/on. I also love the fact that you can set the frame to motion sensor mode, so that it will go off/on without you even having to do anything (note that not all of the models offer the same kind of motion sensor, so be sure to compare models if this is something you are interested in).

Wall Mount or Free Standing

If you prefer to have your frame on the wall, Nixplay Smart Frame comes with wall mounting capability. If you prefer to keep it on a table or desk, there is a bendable cord behind it that makes the frame hard to knock over or tip over like a regular photo frame. It pretty much stands on its own without that typical little fold out flap that most regular frames have.
