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

ZTE in the News: ZTE has been in the news a lot lately thanks to the sanctions the company has been negotiating with the US government. At one point, it seemed as if ZTE would be forced out of business.

But as of mid-July 2018 it looks like the dust has settled and ZTE will be able to continue releasing new products and supporting older devices, so we are dropping our previous warning.

Members, get our further analysis and follow our ongoing tracking of this story in our Special Announcements forum:

Quick Take

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