I just got my livepro in the mail today. In the box it comes with a 5' USB cable with "A" plugs on both ends, a 4' HDMI cable, a cloth carry case, a DC transformer, and the standard manuals with recycle bag for old devices. My first thought was it is bigger than I thought it would be, it's roughly 5" x 5" x 1" and has some heft to it. Set up was very easy, it was no different than an android phone. It runs 4.2.2 out of the box, and aside from the wide angle screen feels like any other android device I've used. On the software side, it is loaded with almost no bloatware from Sprint. It doesn't even have Sprint Zone, all I noticed was Lookout Security. It comes pre-loaded with Google apps such as gmail, maps, navigation, play store etc. Many of my apps are compatible with the device, but some aren't. Signal Check Pro, LTE Discovery, Speed Test.net, FCC Speed Test, Google Voice, and Facebook Messenger were among the ones I frequently use that aren't compatible. Netflix, HBO Go, Tapatalk, Dropbox, Facebook, and Hangouts all seem to work perfectly fine. Using apps directly from the device do eat up the mobile broadband data plan bucket, so be careful running Netflix/YouTube etc unless you are on WiFi. The home screen has a nice widget to set up HDMI input for the projector, miracast, and to turn on the WiFi hotspot. The device itself has three buttons for back, home, and settings below the screen. Directly below that there is a large sleep button, with volume up and down to the sides, and a projector toggle below it. These buttons are all capacitive. On the rear of the device, there is a plug for the DC transformer to charge it, USB, HDMI, and 3.5mm for audio out. The right side has the speaker, which is quite loud for it's size and an exhaust for a fan that operates when the projector display is turned on. The left side has a focus wheel for the projector display, a button to toggle usb device charging, power, a hard reset button and a cover for the micro sim and micro sd slot's. On the under side of the device is a kick stand to angle it up, and a threaded mounting hole to use with a tripod or something similar. The projector display has better picture quality than I thought it would. I haven't had any previous experience with DLP projectors, but I would say it is on par with a lower end LCD TV. I've only used it on a wall, so it may also look better on an actual projector screen. Overall I'm pretty impressed, and don't regret my purchase at all. Miracast was very easy to set up, and when streaming with it data is used from the phone's bucket and not the mobile broadband plan. I bought it on easy pay at $18.50 per month with the promo $8.50 per month plan credit which essentially makes it a $240 device.
