KII Pro TV Box is the latest TV box from Videostrong, popular tech gadgets makers in China. From my first contact with the device, I can conclude that the KII Pro is a slight step-up from the KI / KI Plus TV Boxes. I know you will be wondering why I tagged it as a step-up; most of the specifications of the KII Pro TV Box are similar to those on the KI, but the funny thing is that they are all double on the K2.
Performance and Testing
The big brother of K1 Plus was subjected to a series of tests, and considering the fact that it shares a similar architecture to its predecessor, the performance is not just different but outstanding! In fact, the benchmark testings were conducted thrice to remove doubts.
The Mecool KI pro runs on an Amlogic S905D quad-core CPU, running up to 1.5GHz. My thoughts on this are that the S905 CPU only has support for the Mali 450, which also is the GPU being used in this box. Which begs to question what is the core purpose of this TV box? Reason being is that CPU is 2 generations old. There is the S905X and the S912, which are far better CPUs to use in this device.
It comes with 2GB of DDR4 RAM which I find surprising, and 16GB of internal storage. It comes with dual-band AC 802.11 2.4GHz + 5.8GHz WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0
The KII Pro runs on Android 5.1.1 right out of the box. While this isn’t the latest Android TV Box Operating System version we’ve seen, it is good nevertheless and comes with a bevvy of apps that work great for what they are designed.
- Amlogic S905 CPU with quad-core is rapid and stable, it can give you a high-speed feedback and smooth response.
- H.265 decoding will offer you high definition pictures and movies.
- 2.4G + 5.0G WiFi can improve the speed and the performance to a large extent.
- 2GB DDR3 RAM 16G eMMC ROM gives you more space to download your favorite apps to browse websites, play games, watch movies more smoothly.
- Support DVB-T2 and DVB-S2 setting.
- The remote control is powered by 2 x AAA batteries ( not included ).
