A nice android TV box
30 January 2019
My TV is a 2018 model Samsung TV, Full HD ( Non 4K). Comments based on you tube / USB stick viewing only. I do not have Netflix,etc. Nor do I use blue tooth,etc. I have hard wired the system- Mouse/Ethernet connection/Usb stick.
The box is nice small and nicely finished. It come Preinstalled with Chrome/Facebk/Factory stability/kodi/Family Cinema/Netflix/Skype /Miracast/google/Google Playstore services/Blue tooth share/blue tooth remote/App Installer and many more.
On this device the YouTube control bar has a Nerds View port. ( My other android box doesnot have this feature on the you tube control Bar.) Access it clicking on three vertical dots - at bar end. The c.bar features increase showing the icon at extreme right. click on same .The view port shows the incoming resolution (2k/4k/or any lower resolution) and the output resolution. It also shows the internet speed,etc. The output resolution shows only 1280 / 720P *( Which according to you tube is double the resolution.)2560 /1440. Since my tv is not 4k compatible and it does match with the TV box and hence MAY BE it is not showing 4k output. That is all i can say. Coming to the picture quality it is a little higher then my old Tv box. RESOLUTION: It has Auto resolution. there is no provision made for manual settings of the same and this is good because it reduces the hassles of resetting the resolution of the incoming videos when changing input devices/netflix etc. But again the makers should have given this option for the tech user.
Temperature Rise: My room ambient temperature was about 23/24 degrees. After running for about 3/4 hrs the box was warm to touch which is good. But note- Would advise to keep box at least 3/4 inches above the desk and the bottom side open in order for free air flow. Box response is fast and have not experienced a hang up till writing this comment. There are lot of android apps deep in the menu. Overall the picture quality is better than my other MBOX device.
