If binge-watching movies and listening to music is your thing, then the XGIMI H2 as it has a motion compensation technology integrated in the system, which means it significantly increases the clarity of dynamic pictures. Perfect for films and videos!

The XGIMI H2 produces a vibrant, accurate and beautiful sound, culminating in a superb audio-visual experience. Moreover, the XGIMI H2 is equipped with the brand new Mstar 838, Cortex-A53 structure and Mali T820 GPU, which can provide the most advanced image quality and performance.

If you’re looking for a projector for business purposes, then consider looking at the XGIMI MoGo series as the size and weight of the projector will enable you to carry it to your meetings with clients and colleagues! Did we also mention that the XGIMI MoGo Pro can be used as a power bank too? So if your phone runs out of battery during your presentation/meeting and you forgot to bring your charger, just whip out your XGIMI MoGo Pro.


On top of that, unlike other projectors that feature low luminance power and offer a dim and grainy image, XGIMI MoGo Pro Series offers 300 ANSI Lumen power — this means a good contrast ratio. Say goodbye to blur presentations!


Where will I be using this projector?

If you are looking for a projector that is easy to bring on-the-go, then you should consider the weight and size of the projector. You don’t want to be carrying a huge and heavy projector everywhere.

XGIMI MoGo Pro series would be a good choice as it is designed to be portable and is very very light! It only weighs 0.9kg, you can literally bring it anywhere and everywhere. With its built-in large capacity battery, you don’t have to worry about recharging much as users can watch 2 to 4-hour video (subject to actual usage) or listen to 8 hours of music in a single charge. However, if you intend to get a projector for your own home theatre, the XGIMI H2 would be the best option as it has better keystone correction, more mirror display options, better speakers and clearer visuals. Because the H2 projector features a 1920x1080 native resolution and supporting 3D functions, users can easily turn a white wall into an up to 300" massive display with a crisp and sharp image. Moreover, what differentiates XGIMI H2 is the motion compensation technology where dynamic pictures can be seen clearly. So if you’re watching an action film with lots of movement, you can be sure that you’ll see every little detail with the XGIMI H2.

Since you won’t be moving your home cinema around, investing in a bigger projector that comes with Harman-Kardon dual 8-watt speakers and 0.47” DMD display chip would give a cinema-feel to your own home theatre! Who needs to go to the cinema anymore?


Here is a side-by-side comparison of all XGIMI Projectors:

The main distinguishing factors of all XGIMI Projectors are it’s size, speakers, CPU and display chip.

Altough the XGIMI MoGo series has a lower display chip and standard speakers, the CPU and GPU are still capable of delivering an amazing experience. Plus, it will not be a hassle to carry around due to its size and weight!

To sum it up, if your main purpose in buying the projector is for your home cinema, go for XGIMI H2. If you’re looking to use a projector for business purposes, go for the XGIMI MoGo Pro Series or XGIMI Halo. If you just want a pocket projector, something easy to carry around on a day-to-day basis, go for the XGIMI MoGo Pro+ or the XGIMI MoGO Pro.
