The HiMedia Q5 Pro borrows its style from HiMedia’s last compact Android TV box, the HiMedia Q8. The unit is a sleek aluminium block, with its front panel broken by a large LED display. The case shows the same attention to detail as other HiMedia devices, with chamfered edges and a matte finish that hides fingerprints nicely.
Main Home Launcher:
The HiMedia Q5 Pro’s performance was excellent when using Android 5.1.1. Whether navigating the OS, browsing Kodi or launching apps, everything felt smooth. Booting Android to the “home screen” takes about 00:19.21 seconds (very fast!). “Home screen” launcher Q5 Pro TV Box is the same as Q10 Pro – looks very simple, easy to use and familiar. In addition to the remote control, I used a standard keyboard and mouse, VENZ VZ-RK-1 air mouse with keyboard and Xiaomi gamepad.
