There’s not too much to say, here, as the Neo U1 fits the description, ‘little black box,’ to a tee. It’s a bit larger than most, however, and if you disassemble the casing (don’t, it might void your warranty) you will see the reason for that in the form of a really large heatsink which takes up the bulk of the space. In view of this, it’s no surprise the Neo U1 runs extremely cool, even when put under heavy load. It measures in at 21x127x127mm (HxWxD), for those interested, and feels very well put together. The U1 comes with a detachable antenna, which transmits a Bluetooth 4.1 compatible signal as well as playing its part in the dual-band 802.11ac 2 x 2 MIMO Wi-Fi capability, which is currently as good as it gets in domestic wireless products.
Main Home Launcher:
MINIX has provided their TV-friendly MINIX launcher. Heavily using their trademark green and black color scheme, the launcher uses attractive flat tiles with large icons of various shades of green and grey. It looks great. Apps can be manually organized into categories such as Online Video and Games for easy access.
