21.5″ Android Digital Photo Frame (2013 Dec Updated)
In the past, the touch screen and WIFI of old digital photo frames are hard to use. The touch screen has a slow response, and the WIFI network only fetch data in one or two ways. No app, no extention.

Largest 4:3 Digital Photo Frame Season 190017W
It’s a horrible thing to crop thousands of photos into another aspect ratio to fit your widescreen/landscape digital photo frame. Until now, Season 190017W is the largest digital photo frame in 4:3 aspect ratio. If you know the larger one in 4:3, please let us know.
Best Price Large Digital Photo Frame
In large digital photo frame (from 12 to 21.5 inch), the 14 inch digital photo frame has the best cost performance, it’s even cheaper than some 12 inch frames!
141017B is the one we choose for you! It has a traditional look and 4:3 apect ratio, perfect for photo slideshow!
Panasonic MW-20 Digital Photo Frame
It’s obviously that, Panasonic spent lots of energy on MW-20 digital photo frame. Besides picture slideshow, it supports connecting of iPad/iPad. The picture and videos inside iPhone/iPad can be played after connecting, meanwhile, iPhone/iPad can be charged.
It’s easy to add function to a frame, it’s harder to make things better. Panasonic MW-20 digital photo frame has built-in luminance sensor that automatically adjust the brightness of the LCD screen. The most practical is 6 display modes and 10 slideshow patterns. Another pure digital photo frame!
Samsung 1000P Crystal Swan Digital Photo Frame
Maybe, the Samsung 1000P & Panasonic are predicting the latest style of design. Both of them have a dock, not like a traditional photo frame does. Except the design, it has Bluetooth 2.0 and emotional user interface.
There are two types of design. One is stylish and fashion, another one is traditional and warm. The Aluratek ADPF08SF is the latter one. The rounder corner design is quite remarkable. It’s hard to hate this kind of design.
The Aluratek ADPF08SF has another model with 512MB. We prefer digital photo frame without internal memory.
It’s a long time since last metal front digital photo frame. The Micca M1010Z
is a 10 inch high definition digital photo frame with metal front. This business style digital photo frame is very suitable for a business gift.
This is the second time for Parrot DIA in our yearly top list, because of its fantastic and unique design. As it said that, No Design. A short video shows everything.
ViewSonic is devoted in LCD products. It publishes new digital photo frame each year. This year, Viewsonic VFD820-70 has the hidden dock on the back. Frankly, its back is more beautiful than front. If the 4 frames have the same width, it will be perfect!
AgfaPhoto Digital Photo Frame 5109PS
The AgfaPhoto digital photo frame 5109PS has been picked, because of its 10 inch and 4:3 aspect ratio. The 4:3 digital photo frame is quite rare for 10 inch. Obviously, it shares the similar design with Panasonic, Samsung and Sonic :p
Smartparts Digital Photo Frame
All Smartparts digital photo frames looks the same, traditional and wooden frame. Their pros is its private software. Optipix and Syncpix simplify users’ operation, just a few clicks, all photos are ready to play on the digital photo frame. This is a good idea.
Jobo Piano 15 Digital Photo Frame
We found Jobo digital photo frame since 2009. Until now, it has a completed production line. 3D digital photo frame, Piano and crystal digital photo frames. We pick Jobo Piano 15 media digital photo frame this time. It has glass front and portable bracket.
You can also buy this glass digital photo frame in DigitalFrame8.com.
Frankly, Philips SPF3400/G7 is quite common, nothing special. We choose it, because it was the lead brand in Chinese market. Philips digital photo frame is the first brand which entered the China market. Philips was failed, because Chinese people don’t use (or fewly use) both traditional photo frame and digital photo frame.
Hannspree Memorable Series Digital Photo Frame
Hannspree is a local brand in united kingdom. Its memorable series digital photo frames are remarkable! Valentine, sweet and holiday are best memories of sharing.
