Portronics Scanny 6 Features

As I said that this scanner is like 1 foot wide like a 30 cm ruler. It is thick but very light weighted. The screen size is 1.44inch. The scanner`s body does seem to be fragile. It is so delicate that I had to use it cautiously as if it gets fallen it might get broke into pieces. But I do believe that the scanner looks good but it should have been more rough and tough to use. The scanner look wise is excellent. It supports an SD card of upto 32GB.

The documents can be of any length, but the width it can cover is only of that of the A4. Even a kid can use the scanner with ease. So Performance wise we will give this scanner complete marks if we are by chance rating it.

Battery of this device is superb. I charged it and scanned 243 documents and only 2/3rd of the battery was consumed. While using Wi-Fi of the device, just to start the Wi-Fi the device took 28 seconds. Which is a very long time. We hope that the company will reduce this time. Overall this device is great in performance.
