Lifeprint 3×4.5″ HyperPhoto Printer : William Harrel – Journalist

Lifeprint 3x4.5 Hyperphoto Printer review at PCMag

    • PROS

      Prints cool “hyperphotos” that animate when viewed through the Lifeprint app. Easy social media integration. Prints are larger than more-common wallet-size photo printer output.

CONS

  • Prints are costly, and inconsistent in quality. A little sluggish at printing. Only prints from mobile devices.

  • BOTTOM LINE

    The Lifeprint 3×4.5 Hyperphoto Printer offers a unique technology that seemingly makes photos come to life, but it is more of a novelty than a must-have.

In the world of tiny photo printers designed to print exclusively from smartphones, the Lifeprint 3×4.5 Hyperphoto Printer ($149.99) has two big things going for it. The first thing: Its 3-by-4.5-inch prints are larger than the wallet-size photos from similar printers such as the Kodak Photo Printer Mini, HP Sprocket, and Lifeprint’s own 2×3 Hyperphoto Printer. (They’re midway in size between these models’ prints and 4-by-6-inch snapshots.) But what really sets the Lifeprint 3×4.5 (as well as the Lifeprint 2×3) apart from its peers is its nifty ability to print “hyperphotos”: seemingly ordinary prints that, when viewed through the Lifeprint app, appear to come to life.
