HP A646 Compact Photo Printer Review
A small printer that can handle most of your on-the-fly photo printing needs with notably good performance.
In terms of value, it's hard to argue with a printer that does the same exact things as the printer in question but better, and cheaper too. For about $100 less than the A536, the A646 performs better across the board, and does just about everything the A536 can do. There's no contest here.
The A646 edges out the A536 in term of color accuracy, although it's not a dramatic difference. Still, the HP Photosmart A646 is better.
Both printers maintain roughly the same level of detail in photos, but they certainly have their issues. The HP Photosmart A646 barely edges out the A536.
Though the HP Photosmart A646's dMax measure is fairly good, that of the A536 is uninspiring at best. Stick with the HP Photosmart A646 for better contrast.
Color Gamut Comparison
Both printers are fairly impressive in this regard, but the HP Photosmart A646's gamut measure of 69.9% of the Adobe RGB color gamut is far better than the A536's.
Both printers can print from smartphones, are very portable, and can print 4 x 6 as well as 5 x 7 inch photos. There is virtually no difference between the two outside of the fact that the HP Photosmart A646 has a touchscreen.
