People take a lot of photos these days but most of them don’t have time to look back. They might be stored on your phone or computer but no one wants to open these folders because they might contain thousands of pictures. Those beautiful memories might be forgotten forever. That’s the reason why I’ve used digital photo frames for years. The Dragon Touch Classic 10 FHD is the newest one I’ve tested recently.

Design & Features
The Dragon Touch frame requires simple setup out of the box. You can either use the wall mount hole to hang it on the wall or attach the included stand to place it on a desk. It can be placed in the portrait or landscape mode. After plugging in, you will need to follow on-screen instructions to set it up. The touch display makes the whole process much easier. Basically, you will just need to connect to your Wi-Fi network, choose location, timezone, and install the OurPhoto app on your Android or iOS device to complete.
The homepage shows you options to view photos, videos, weather, calendar, set up alarm, and other settings like slideshow mode, transition effects, interval, etc.
There are a lot of ways to transfer your photos to the frame. If you are concerned about privacy and not confident with security of the cloud service, you can use it as an offline digital frame. In this case, you don’t need to connect it to the Internet and don’t need the app at all. You can use the cable to import photos from your computer, plugging in a USB drive, or a SD card.
If convenience is your priority, Dragon Touch has much simpler ways to transfer photos. Since most of us use our phone to take pictures, you can use the OurPhoto app, select photos you want to show on the frame, and hit Send. Another useful feature is that each user is assigned with a unique email address; People can send photos to the email address and they will appear on the frame as well.
Before using the Classic 10 FHD, I’ve used about 5 other digital photo frames but most of them have average image quality because of HD resolution. The Classic 10 FHD is my first full-HD frame and it looks amazing at every angle. The resolution is even higher than the Google Nest Hub Max which costs over $200. The Classic 10 FHD is purely a photo frame and I don’t see the need of printing photos anymore. The images look so sharp and clear that sometimes I feel like they are printed out of expensive inkjet printers.
Apart from viewing photos, you can also play short videos of up to 30 seconds with the frame. Notice that the videos should be recorded in full-HD resolution or lower; I tried transferring some 4K videos but the frame’s processor might not be powerful enough to play those videos.
Overall, Classic 10 FHD is a high-quality digital frame and you can buy it simply for the stunning image quality. There are areas for improvement and I really hope it could be updated with better integration with services like Google Photos, Dropbox or iCloud.
Dragon Touch is also offering a lower-priced Classic 10 with lower resolution. You can use the promo code TuanDo3DM8J to save more than $30 the listing price on Amazon. The code is valid until April 30th.
