Product Overview: Verizon Spro 2 Smart Projector by ZTE (Projector / Hotspot)

ZTE Warning: The US government in retaliation for ZTE violating past agreements recently announced new sanctions that would prevent US companies from selling any technology to ZTE. ZTE has announced that these sanctions would force them entirely out of business.

If true, this means that ongoing spare parts, warranty repairs, and software updates for this product may be in doubt.

Quick Take

This is a combo projector and mobile hotspot. In general, we are not big fans of combining functionality like this.
