    Actually it is a great portable printer to have in hand when you want to create memories. With a limit of 10 ZINC paper printer load, I could get enough prints for me and my friends in one event, but it could be just a few for some people. We have to be mindful on how to store the spare ZINC paper as it cannot bear high temperature, considering we are in the middle of a heatwave in London. Without editing, the print quality does not have the color saturation fidelity as the photo found on my smartphone. However, with a bit of editing and tweaking, this is not a problem. I found adding experiences (4 borders available in the app) quite interesting. Reviewing the experiences by scanning the printout photo is just amazing and a fantastic feature. I would have liked more choice of experiences though.

      This is a fantastic gadget I love this little thing, maybe a little too much! It’s easy to set up and prints decent quality photos. They're not perfect as often the colour is off with tinges of pink, sometimes too dark, the colour accuracy leaves a bit to be desired but I feel that misses the point. These devices aren't meant to print pictures that are going to be framed and scrutinised. I use mine for casual, fun pictures when out and about and diary additions. The paper comes in packs and just slots in and once the app is downloaded you're good to go. After downloading the free Sprocket app onto my phone I had printed off my first snap within two minutes. It is very simple to operate and prints come really fast (10 seconds). The app has an editing facility with which I can alter contrast, brightness etc and add 'stickers', frames and effects, should I wish. I like the small size, so I can carry it with me when I'm travelling. The pictures are small enough to carry in a wallet and can be used as photos or if the backing is peeled off they can be used as stickers. This is a fun and useful gadget and I am pleased with it so far.

        Great printer as small as a mobile phone easy to use comes with app to connect up and choose your pictures. Great choice of frames and stickers also text to make it more personal.

          The first thing anyone will say is how much smaller this is than they think. It's roughly the size of a phablet, so is incredibly portable. Unboxing and set up is really easy, although wish the nice braided USB power cable was longer - it can make it difficult to charge in certain circumstances. Loading up with the sheets of Zink paper is really easy too, but wish it held more then one pack at a time. Pairing up to a phone via the Sprocket app is simple and straightforward, and includes added bonuses of all those Instagram-esque frames and additions that you can add to your pics. I was slightly worried that anyone else wanting to print photos would all have to download the app, but sending any photos to the printer without the app and via Bluetooth is just as easy, so family and friends can also print off their own prints without having to constantly ask you to do it. I'd say I'm happy with the quality of the prints that come out so far. I guess a level of expectation needs to come with this - they're small prints, I'd say not designed for long lasting prints like you might print and put in a decent frame, maybe more for that fun, almost disposable type prints. It's definitely one for the kids too - all the kids that've seen it in action love waiting to see what is being printed, and, as they're small prints they seem perfect for little hands! The only downside for me is the battery life, which, if printing a lot in the space of, say, an hour at a party, will see it nearly conked out. Leaving it plugged in sorts this, but, as a printer sold as being portable it would've been nice to see a larger capacity battery inside. So so far I'd say my experiences have been favourable for the Sprocket Plus. Compared to something like a Polaroid Snap, which for me doesn't produce great prints and is sluggish, this is far and away superior, and it's good that it leverages the quality of your phone camera to produce better photo prints.

            So this HP sprocket plus wireless printer is firmly targeted at people that want to be able to produce quick, easy printouts of photos taken on smartphones or from major social media networks (instagram, facebook, google etc.) on location possibly to share with friends etc. Well for those purposes it is superb. Charging only takes about an hour and you are ready to go, with universal compatibility between handsets as the sprocket app is available for both android and apple handsets. The actual printing process is so quick and easy, simply open the sprocket app and click print (ensuring bluetooth is on on your phone) and within 40s you'll have a full 5.8 x 8.6 cm photo printout (which is also a sticker!) that's dry to the touch. You can print from your gallery, social media accounts or take pictures from within the sprocket app itself and edit photos with fun borders and emojis/stickers. The only downside with this product, and I feel it is the trade-off you make when trying to develop such a small portable printer without the messiness of inks, is that the actual print quality isn't the best. All of the photos I tried to print came out with a blueish tint to them and that's why I'm only giving this product 4 stars not 5. I don't think anyone would expect perfect photo print quality from such a small and portable device and considering the photos are printed in a sticker format, you pay for portability with print quality. The refills are also quite expensive at £11.99 for a pack of 20 pages, there are however deals that include refills with the unit at a lower price than you could buy them for separately.
