XGIMI states that the MoGo 2 Pro is the first entry-level projector that combines ease of use with exceptional capabilities, boasting advanced specifications. In addition, the device is designed for incredibly simple operation, making the setup process as straightforward as point and play – a hallmark of XGIMI projectors.

The MoGo 2 series is XGIMI's inaugural projector line that enables power supply via 65-watt or higher power banks. Since the MoGo 2 Pro does not include an integrated battery like the MoGo Pro and Mogo Pro+, enabling power supply through a power bank is crucial. This feature allows users to watch movies on the go, making it convenient to enjoy your favorite content almost anywhere you desire.

The XGIMI MoGo 2 Pro allows for powering through portable power banks rated at 65 watts or more

Most users will likely never need to physically connect the MoGo 2 Pro to an external source, thanks to the numerous streaming apps pre-installed in the unit. With access to popular platforms like Netflix, Apple TV, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and HBO Max, the MoGo 2 Pro offers a comprehensive smart projector experience without the need for external sources.

In a departure from the last generation MoGo and MoGo Pro+ models that feature Harman Kardon speakers, XGIMI opted to design its own speakers for the MoGo 2 Pro. The XGIMI MoGo 2 Pro has dual integrated 8-watt speakers and a rear-facing visible bass diaphragm. An added perk of the MoGo 2 Pro is its ability to function as a Bluetooth speaker.

The MoGo 2 Pro delivers impressive sound quality from its compact package. Its double-sided sound output is capable of producing loud and clear audio, making it suitable for listening to your favorite movies and TV shows in various settings such as a bedroom, military barracks, campsite, or college dormitory.

The MoGo 2 series comes with built-in Chromecast functionality, making it effortless to stream the screen of Android devices to the projector. While iOS AirPlay isn't directly supported, it can still be used via third-party applications like “Magicast.”

As mentioned, many streaming apps like Netflix, Apple TV, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and HBO Max are available on the XGIMI MoGo 2 Pro. However, it should be noted that there are extra steps to take for a smooth Netflix experience. Luckily, the MoGo 2 Pro comes with a pamphlet that says “Netflix Installation Guidelines.” It’s a simple tri-fold pamphlet with four simple steps to follow to install Netflix:

  1. Find and install the Desktop Launcher app on Google Play
  2. Click on “Allow”
  3. Install the Netflix app
  4. Complete the Netflix app installation and enjoy

Once installed, I found Netflix to work exactly as expected. I didn’t experience any glitches or that irritating excessive lag that’s associated with devices with poorly integrated Netflix functionality.

The XGIMI MoGo 2 Pro is compact and easily portable

The MoGo 2 Pro measures in at 6.33 inches x 4.25 inches x 4.68 inches (H x W x D) and weighs 2.42 lbs. Thanks to its compact size, the MoGo 2 Pro can be quickly moved from place to place in a home or tossed into a backpack and then taken on the road.

If you're constantly on the move as a military member, a road warrior, an RVer (recreational vehicle user), a student residing in an apartment or dormitory, or a homeowner who prioritizes portability in a projector, the XGIMI MoGo 2 Pro might be the ideal option for you.

On the front of the MoGo 2 Pro, you'll find the lens and sensors for the ISA 2.0 technology. The top of the projector features the power on/off button. The rear of the unit includes a USB Type-C port, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI 2.0 port, an AUX 3.5mm output port, and a new transparent bass diaphragm. Additionally, the bottom of the projector has a ¼” tripod socket.

Xgimi Mogo 2 Pro Is Equipped With A Single Hdmi 2.0 Port - Projector Reviews - Image
Although most users are likely to rely on the projector's built-in apps and wireless casting features, the XGIMI MoGo 2 Pro is equipped with a single HDMI 2.0 port located on the rear of the unit.

Although the XGIMI MoGo 2 Pro is equipped with an integrated audio system, some users may prefer to connect the projector to a soundbar or an AV Receiver to fully experience high-quality sound using the HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) feature. HDMI ARC is a two-way communication feature of the HDMI standard that enables communication between an audio device, such as a soundbar, and a projector. Along with sending audio, HDMI ARC allows the projector remote control to control certain aspects of the audio device, including basic controls such as volume.

With the MoGo 2 Pro, a single remote is all that's needed to control the projector and access its smart interface. This feature is appreciated by us at Projector Reviews, as some "smart" projectors require a separate smart dongle and a second remote.

The remote control for the MoGo 2 Pro includes all the standard buttons found on a modern projector remote control. Furthermore, there is a built-in microphone on the remote for voice control systems that utilize Google Assistant.

Similar to many portable projectors that I review, the only feature absent from the remote control of the MoGo 2 Pro is backlighting. In low light conditions, it can be challenging to locate and utilize the correct buttons on the remote, as both the remote and its buttons are black with grey icons. However, the Google Assistant button stands out with its blue, red, and yellow colors.

According to XGIMI, the MoGo 2 Pro is capable of projecting images ranging from 40 inches up to 200 inches. In my projector lab, I projected images ranging from 75 to 100 inches using the MoGo 2 Pro. With a throw ratio of 1.2:1, the unit projects a 40-inch image when placed 3.47 feet from the projector screen or wall and a 100-inch image when placed 8.69 feet away.

It is important to note that the distance from the projector lens to the projection surface, video format, and zoom setting can all affect the projected image quality and size. I found the projector to be bright enough to produce a quality image at 100 inches, even when I partially opened my blackout shade and allowed a small amount of ambient light into the room.

Throw Distance By Screen Size
40 inches1.06 m / 3.47 ft
50 inches1.33 m / 4.36 ft
60 inches1.60 m / 5.24 ft
70 inches1.86 m / 6.10 ft

100 inches2.65 m / 8.69 ft
110 inches2.92 m / 9.58 ft
120 inches3.18 m / 10.43 ft

The MoGo 2 Pro has Image Zoom. Clicking on the Keystone Correction menu under the Projector Settings tab will bring up Image Zoom.  Once you press on Image Zoom, a scale that says Digital Zoom pops up on the screen. From the Digital Zoom scale, the end-user can zoom in or out of the projection image.

INTELLIGENT SCREEN ADAPTATION 2.0 TECHNOLOGY

Debut Of Xgimi'S Proprietary Isa 2.0 Technology - Projector Reviews - Image
The MoGo 2 Pro marks the debut of XGIMI's proprietary ISA 2.0 technology in their projector lineup.

The MoGo 2 Pro is the first XGIMI projector to incorporate their exclusive ISA 2.0 technology, which offers uninterrupted automatic keystone correction and autofocus, resulting in an effortless viewing experience for users. With multi-angle automatic keystone correction and focus adjustment, both horizontally and vertically, the projector can adjust its image without the need for user input, ensuring the clearest and most appropriate projected image almost instantly.

Additionally, with intelligent obstacle avoidance, the MoGo 2 Pro can identify and avoid obstacles in the projection area, such as light switches or picture frames. The ISA 2.0 functions in the MoGo 2 Pro are significantly faster and more accurate than XGMI Halo+ and XGIMI Elfin, which run off ISA 1.0 technology.

ISA 2.0 also includes Intelligent Eye Protection, where the light source dims automatically to prevent extremely bright light from entering their eyes when they pass or stop in front of the projector.

The Intelligent Eye Protection feature is so effective that I had to turn it off during ANSI lumens measurements. It kept dimming the image as I continuously walked in front of the projector. It’s a vital upgrade intended for households with children and pets, not for reviewers constantly walking in front of the screen and projector.

The images above display notable features from commonly accessed sub-menus like Brightness Mode, and Sound Settings.

Since the MoGo 2 Pro is a smart projector, numerous menu and entertainment options exist. The menu system of the MoGo 2 Pro is neatly arranged and user-friendly. The remote control includes a Home menu button (depicting a silhouette of a home) that takes you directly to the projector's home menu screen. While the images in this section show only a limited number of available sub-menus, there are many more to explore. Here, I have presented some of the more noteworthy sections from the most frequently used sub-menus, such as Brightness Mode, Sound Settings, and the Others menu.

PERFORMANCE

COLOR REPRODUCTION

The MoGo 2 Pro boasts improved color performance, with a color gamut coverage of up to 90% of the DCI-P3 color gamut standard range. This expanded coverage results in more vibrant and natural colors, allowing for greater color detail than its predecessors. Additionally, the MoGo 2 Pro utilizes the D65 color temperature standard, which is widely used in Hollywood as a color temperature standard.

When accessing the projector’s Image Mode, you will come across four picture modes that can be user-selected: Movie, Office, Game, and Custom. I found Movie mode to strike a good balance between brightness and color reproduction in my testing environment. Surprisingly, Office mode had an acceptably warm yet overly soft image output in my room, contrary to my initial expectations of sacrificing any and all image fidelity for maximum lumens in an office setting.

Custom mode is just that; it’s a mode that you can use to fine-tune the projector’s image to suit your personal viewing environment. Custom mode has the following adjustments to tune your image to suit your viewing environment: Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, Sharpness, Noise Reduction, Color Temperature, and HDR.

I toggled between Movie and Custom modes during my review. Lastly, like many other projectors, switching to Game mode disables Keystoning, so it is important to ensure proper alignment of the projector if you plan to use it for gaming.

I want to point out that all the images in this review are from a projector without any ISF calibration. I did not perform any ISF calibrations since, at this price point, I don't believe anyone would want to pay for calibration.

BRIGHTNESS

XGIMI advertises the brightness of the MoGo 2 Pro at 400 ISO lumens; ANSI lumens are not provided. When comparing ISO lumens and ANSI lumens, it's essential to understand that both refer to methods for measuring the brightness of projectors.

In general, ISO lumens are measured to gauge brightness in a controlled laboratory setting with minimal light reflection, while ANSI lumens measure brightness in real-world scenarios with various degrees of light reflection. Although it is possible to measure ISO lumens outside of a laboratory setting with some effort, the results may not be as reliable or consistent. It is important to note that there is no direct conversion between ISO lumens and ANSI lumens since they are two distinct ways of measuring brightness.

  • Xgimi Mogo 2 Pro Projector Brightness - Projector Reviews - Image
The MoGo 2 Pro is a portable projector rated at 400 ISO lumens. I measured 463 ANSI lumens in my projector lab

As mentioned, ANSI lumens and ISO lumens use different measurement standards.

  1. ANSI lumens: ANSI (American National Standards Institute) lumens is a widely accepted and well-established standard for measuring projector brightness. ANSI has set specific guidelines for measuring lumens, which involve dividing the projected image into nine equal sections, taking a luminance reading in the center of each section, and then calculating the average value. The ANSI lumens measurement provides a consistent and comparable way to evaluate the brightness of different projectors.
  2. ISO lumens: ISO (International Organization for Standardization) lumens is another method for measuring projector brightness, introduced by the ISO/IEC 21118:2012 standard. The primary difference between ANSI and ISO lumens is the way brightness is measured. The ISO method divides the projected image into 13 sections and takes a luminance reading from the center of each section. The maximum and minimum values are discarded, and the average is calculated from the remaining 11 values.

While both ANSI and ISO lumens are intended to provide consistent measurements of projector brightness, the ISO method is less common and not as widely adopted as the ANSI method. In general, the two methods should produce relatively similar brightness values, but it's essential to compare projectors using the same measurement standard to ensure an accurate comparison.

To be thorough, I used my Murideo SIX-G Generator to project the Murideo Full White Test Pattern and measured the XGMI MoGo 2 Pro’s brightness for myself. To measure the brightness, I set the projector’s Brightness Mode to Performance and then set the Image Mode to Custom, which are the projector’s brightest settings. I then took 3-4 readings about 15-20% out from the center of the lens.

At maximum brightness and while plugged into an AC power source, the MoGo 2 Pro measured 463 ANSI lumens. Next, I went into the XGIMI MoGo 2 Pro’s Image Mode and measured all four available modes while plugged into my home’s AC power; my measurements are below.

  • Xgimi Mogo 2 Pro Projector HDR10 - Projector Reviews - Image
The XGIMI MoGo 2 Pro supports HDR10

HDR10 is supported by the MoGo 2 Pro, which is crucial for displaying HDR content on a projector. To do so, the projector must have a high contrast ratio and brightness, enabling it to showcase the wider range of brightness and color that HDR content provides. Additionally, the quality of the perceived HDR content may be impacted by the ambient lighting conditions in the room, as the increased brightness and contrast can be influenced by any ambient light present.

SOUND QUALITY

The built-in sound system of the MoGo 2 Pro is surprisingly good for its size, as I previously mentioned. Its dual 8-watt speakers can play loud enough to comfortably listen to movies and TV shows in a bedroom or outside at a campsite. Moreover, the MoGo 2 Pro has an integrated Bluetooth receiver and a transmitter, allowing you to use it as a standalone Bluetooth speaker.

The XGIMI MoGo 2 Pro has dual-integrated 8-watt speakers and a visible bass diaphragm.

The MoGo 2 Pro's HDMI 2.0 port supports ARC, which enables higher-quality audio to be sent from the projector to an external audio device such as a soundbar or home theater audio system. For testing purposes, I connected the MoGo 2 Pro via HDMI to my new projector lab audio setup, which includes a Marantz AV8805 AV Pre Tuner, Marantz MM8077 7CH power amplifier, a pair of Definitive Technology BP9080x bipolar tower speakers, and Definitive Technology Demand D5c center channel speaker, and it worked flawlessly.

The MoGo 2 Pro's built-in audio system is more than sufficient for a portable projector of this size. Also, bringing a home theater audio system to a remote campsite or on a road trip is not practical. The integrated audio system of the MoGo 2 Pro will provide a satisfactory experience while on the go.

GAMING

I can see someone carrying the MoGo 2 Pro from dorm room to dorm room to watch TV and play video games. Within the Image Mode options of the MoGo 2 Pro is a mode named Game. Being an avid gamer, I felt compelled to put this mode to the test for everyone

  • Xgimi Mogo 2 Pro Projector Gaming - Projector Reviews - Image
  • Xgimi Mogo 2 Pro Projector Gaming - Projector Reviews - Image
  • Xgimi Mogo 2 Pro Projector Gaming - Projector Reviews - Image
Gaming on the go is no problem with the MoGo 2 Pro.

So, I selected two games from the "Best Games To Play On A Projector" series by Projector Reviews, which included Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Hogwarts Legacy. With the Game image mode enabled, the MoGo 2 Pro showcased its second-highest ANSI lumens output, allowing me to fully immerse myself in the gaming experience using nearly the projector's maximum brightness.

Although the MoGo 2 Pro may not secure victory in gaming contests that demand minimal input lag, it is suitable for experiencing large-scale gaming on the go, in your outdoor space, or at evening neighborhood block parties.

SUMMARY
