The Big Picture

20 Votes

Rate this product

The Big Picture is a smartphone magnification system that provides you with a viewing screen that is two times bigger than your smartphone. It can be used anywhere indoors and outdoors, and with phones up to 6" in length. The design of the device makes it quite strong and also helps to protect your phone from the elements.

Simply slide your phone in the side opening and it's ready to go. You can even use your fingers to scroll, push buttons, and manipulate the screen, from the side holes.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of The Big Picture is $14.99 plus $5.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second The Big Picture at the discounted price of only $7.49 for a total price of $28.47.

This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page ( www.buythebigpicture.com ) which was taken offline due to The Big Picture being discontinued. The Big Picture may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

Features

  • 100% Satisfaction Guarantee

    Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed. If you are unhappy with the product for any reason, it can be returned within 30 days of receipt for a full refund (excluding processing and handling).

  • 2x Magnification

    The Big Picture doubles your screen viewing size with the magnification mirror, making it much easier to see what's on your phone. It does not flip the viewing angle while doing this.

  • Leg Stand

    There is a front leg stand that works to angle your phone upwards while it is sitting on a flat surface. This can be useful for some viewing angles.

Pros

  • Limited Time Offer

    For a limited time, you can double your offer for a small fee. There will be no extra shipping and handling fee for the second unit.

  • Prevents Eye Strain

    Since you are able to view your screen from further away, it will help to prevent eye strain. This is great for kids who keep the phone too close to their face, and especially useful for when continuously reading small text.

  • For Left or Right Handers

    There is an opening on both sides of The Big Picture which is handy for users who are both left and right-handed. It also gives you access to the buttons and functions on both sides of your phone and screen.

  • No Batteries Required

    There are no batteries required to use The Big Picture. The screen size of your phone is doubled with the magnification mirror.

  • No Setup Required

    There is no setup needed which makes this device simple to use for children and elderly people. Just slip your phone in the side hole and it's ready to go.

  • Protects Your Phone

    Although this is not one of the intended uses, it does work to protect your phone from accidentally being splashed with liquids and dirt. This feature is most useful when children are playing around your phone or when you're using it while cooking in the kitchen.

  • Backup For Glasses

    If you're unable to find your glasses or don't have your contacts in, you don't need to worry if you have The Big Picture nearby.

Cons

  • Shipping Surcharge

    There is a large shipping surcharge for orders sent to Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, US Virgin Islands, and Alaska.

    Quebec, Canada is not serviced at this time.

  • Doesn't Fit All Phones

    The Big Picture only fits phones up to 6" long which is not compatible with many of the new plus-sized popular phones. This is a big draw-back that should have been addressed beforehand.

  • Too Bulky

    The device is very bulky and not suitable for transporting due to the size. It would be much more practical if The Big Picture could be folded down into a compact size for use while traveling.

  • Hard To Use Phone

    It appears incredibly hard to use your phone while it is in The Big Picture. There are only small spaces on the side of the device where you can fit your fingers. Unless you are a child or have long slender fingers, it will be very hard to do more than just touch the screen. 

    Most people will pull the phone out when they need to move the screen or change windows which is less efficient.

  • Unpractical

    Although The Big Picture does magnify the screen of your phone, it is not a practical device for users these days. Tablets are much less expensive than they used to be and are a lot easier to use than this device.

    The Big Picture would have been more useful before the invention of the tablet, or when tablets were not affordable for most families.

  • Not Good For Video Games

    The official website suggests that The Big Picture is a great device to play video games with, but that is not the case. It is much too difficult to touch the screen, and maneuver, to be able to play any type of game on your phone.

  • Cannot Be Adjusted

    The front leg stand should be adjustable depending on the viewing angle that you require. Since it is stuck at the same height, it won't be suitable for all users who want to view The Big Picture screen.

Does It Really Work?

Yes! The Big Picture does work to magnify the display of your smartphone. It is easy to use and can be utilized by both children and adults. However, it is not the most practical device and is only useful in a small number of situations.

Easy to Use

  1. Choose What You Want

    It's a good idea to choose your preferred movie, show, webpage, or article before starting. This is because it is much easier to use your phone before placing it into the device.

  2. Insert

    When you've chosen what you want to view, you can insert the phone into the side of The Big Picture.

  3. Make Changes

    To make changes to what you're viewing, or to scroll the page, just stick your fingers into the side of the device.

Variety of Uses

  1. TV Screen

    Transform your phone into a mini television with The Big Screen. This is great for long car rides or for entertaining children while at a restaurant. Instead of each child looking at their own phone, they'll be able to watch a movie together with this device.

  2. Recipes

    Keep your phone clean while cooking, and let Big Picture simultaneously magnify the words of a recipe. It is suitable in all rooms of the house, including the kitchen.

  3. Read Books & Small Print

    Let The Big Picture aid you in reading your favorite ebooks or the small fine print on a coupon.

Concerns

  • Dropping Phone

    When moving it is important to remove your phone first. Since there are holes on both sides of the box, your phone could easily slip out of either side, fall, and break.
