Portronics Pandora is a device that is of the size of a USB stick which can be plugged into the HDMI port of a television or projector directly and can connect to your Smartphone. Connect Pandora to your Wi-Fi network and easily share the content from all your devices on the large television or projector display without the wires.

Pandora lets you project the existing photos and videos of your Smartphone to your Television. You can also project documents like PowerPoint presentations, Word Documents as well as Excel sheets from your Smartphone to the television. This facility comes really handy especially during Conferences or Boardroom meeting or if you simply want to sit back and relive your moments of joy with the entire family and friends.

It works in two different modes ; Wi-Fi Direct and Wi-Fi Mode. In the Wi-Fi Direct Mode, no router or internet is required at home or office. The Smartphone connects to the Pandora HDMI streaming device through internal Wi-Fi connection and the content can be streamed without any delay.

Using in the Wi-Fi Mode, the Pandora connects to the Wi-Fi router of your Home/Office and the Smartphone gets the internet indirectly through the Pandora Streaming players and you can then see YouTube videos or browse the internet.

This supports almost every device including the Android Smartphone, iPhone, iPads, Windows Laptops and Mac book are compatible with Pandora.

We used the device for more than two weeks, and it worked perfectly. We connected this with our Philips TV and used Samsung smartphone to connect it using the both modes. It was able to cast the smartphone screen, however, we saw a little delay in the casting, rest was working fine.
