Projector Setup

After powering up the unit, you will go through the setup of the Bluetooth remote after which we have the screen above. The VAVA unit runs on a custom build of Android 7.1, and instead of the Google Play Store they went for AptoideTV to give the feel of AndroidTV. That's said, the main menu offers a full range of options including all 3 HDMI channels, App Store and File Manager.

Above we have a peak at AptoideTV, and while is does have that clean feeling you get from AndroidTV it does offer a good selection of apps including; YouTube, Mobdro, Kodi and VLC.

Back to setup, we have several options in the gear menu. These include network setup, source, display and sound setup and along the bottom general options and Bluetooth.

Keystone correction offers the ability for you to fine tune the projector to your screen size and VAVA offers both 8- and 4-point correction.

Testing

I started initial testing after using the projector as my personal TV for a few days, this gave the unit enough time to "break-in". As you can see from our first image colors look quite good especially in a scenario like this with vibrant pinks in front of subtle blues.

Here we have a somewhat darker image with a bit of light through the center.

And no testing would be complete without the dude on 4K Bluray.

Moving over to gaming, this projector looked fantastic in Apex on my 1X.

Even with quicker paced games like Forza showed great color and really no input lag.
