Wish to watch a movie with your friends but the smartphone screen is just too small? Users can attach the Insta-Share Projector at the back to project the screen up to 70-inches. The palm-sized projector is light and can easily fit inside trouser pockets. When the Insta-Share Projector is attached to the Moto Z or Moto Z Play, the overall battery life is increased by an hour. The projector can be setup between 90-degrees straight (in case you want to project images on the ceiling while you are lying down on your bed) and 20-degrees for wall projection.
