HP Sprocket Photo Printer review

 

Like with other digital cameras , I'd wager that most photos you take with your phone never make their way into print. That's a shame since your photos (or some of them, at least) are meant to be seen, not just live in a gadget's memory.

The HP Sprocket is exceptionally easy to use and prints straight from your phone. The image editing tools bring fun to an otherwise ordinary task.

Print quality is average and the cost of replacement paper can add up quickly.

If you can afford its initial and ongoing costs and aren't looking to hang your work in a museum, the HP Sprocket Photo Printer is a simple and enjoyable way to get photos off your phone.

HP Sprocket Photo Printer

 

The tiny, pocket-size HP Sprocket Photo Printer can produce wallet-size prints from your phone or tablet's photo albums or your social media accounts, but its output quality could be better.

Fast photo printing. Highly portable. Prints from your phone or tablet's photo albums. Easy integration with Facebook, Instagram, and Flickr.

Limited to wallet-size (2-by-3) prints. Can only print from smartphones and tablets via Bluetooth.

If you want to print small snapshots exclusively from your phone or tablet—whether from its photo albums or your social media accounts—the HP Sprocket is a convenient and appealing choice. Very similar in most ways (price, dimensions, speed, print...

My daughter loves it

 

I bought this for my daughter for Christmas. She does not have a cell phone but wanted a camera. I liked the idea of her being able to get her printouts immediately and not needing me to hook it up to a printer. She has photos of the family and dogs...

Great printer!!

 

I am 51 y/o, and I was a bit sceptical, however it went beyond my expectations. I love this printer, good quality pictures and the zero ink technology just blows me away. I recommend it to everyone no matter how old you may be. You'll love it.

I love this product! It is one of the coolest things to happen to photos in a very long time. Take the pic, send it to Sprocket and just like magic you have a little wallet sized pic that you can stick to just about anything. Cool, amazing, awesome and...

High Quality and Reliable.
