Most of the Android TV boxes out there are loaded with latest Amlogic S912 octa-core CPU and ARM Mali-T820MP3 GPU nowadays. Same apply to RKM MK22 Plus by Rikomagic that I have. Being an S912 TV box, rest assures that it is capable to play 4K Ultra HD content through H.265 codec technology. Furthermore, it is loaded with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM. Hey, that’s not common among those boxes. And comes with dual-band Wi-Fi (802.11 B/G/N/AC), Bluetooth 4.0 and Gigabit Ethernet. Powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow with a lot of nice features like Adoptable Storage.
Package Content & Design
There are RKM MK22 Plus, remote control, HDMI cable and power adapter in the package. No user manual here. Based on Rikomagic website, there should be an e-Manual. But I can’t find it there either. Anyway, it is not hard to use Android TV box if you are familiar with an Android operating system already. As for power adaptor, you can select the correct plug for your region (US, EU, UK & AU). Like mine is UK plug. The infrared remote unit is a very simple one. No air mouse support is fine. But it doesn’t even have mouse pointer which basically makes it a useless remote. No problem to use it to do simple navigation but you will face a problem when trying to input something.
MK22 Plus is powered by Android 6.0.1 and support OTA firmware update (so far I did not receive any update – using the latest one here). It is loaded with Kodi Media Center – 16.1 stable version. And comes with other applications like Gmail, Superuser and YouTube pre-installed too. Hmm… All of them are part of system applications (except Kodi). You can only disable them but not uninstall unless you have root access. Not to worry much because there are 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage for you. If still not enough, just enable Adoptable Storage that use SD card as internal storage to store applications, data, and media.
Main Home Launcher
Above is the launcher that comes along with MK22 Plus. You can’t change the big shortcuts. But you can add your own preferred apps at the bottom (the smaller shortcut like Kodi). And it also comes with Android tablet alike launcher (you can select the one you want in the settings). The current RKM Launcher V3 is not so stable. I faced launcher force closed issue when exiting from certain applications.
