This top-rated portable projector from Samsung can point anywhere thanks to its 180-degree design. It automatically focuses the image, optimizes the screen size, and can level the image even when it's pointed at an angle. You can easily access all your favorite streaming apps and use voice assistants, and the built-in speaker sends sound waves in every direction for great audio immersion. It works best indoors with dim lighting, or outside when it's night.
