Main Home Launcher
RUPA Pyramid A5 has a well-known UI from earlier models (Q10 Pro and Q5 Pro), launcher looks great and is very readable, providing quick and easy access to the most important features. We chose typical the resolution of FHD 1920×1080 (1080p 60Hz) but you can also adjust the preferred resolution or set the auto switch. In the display option, you can set (as in TV) contrast, brightness, and sharpness. Everything worked stable and very quickly without delays, Netflix also works without problems.
RUPA A5 support also DLNA and Miracast. We had no problem with Ethernet and WiFi connection to the router and to the Internet (Ethernet: Download – 312.46Mbps Upload – 42.49Mbps, WiFi: Download – 197.14Mbps Upload – 41.86Mbps). In addition to the remote control (that looks and works great), we used a standard keyboard and mouse and Gamepad GameSir G3s. On the remote control, you can assign any application, on buttons 1 to 9. Although the device in its specification has 16GB eMMC, storage has 11.73GB of data. RUPA A5 does not have a standby mode, but we do not consider this as a disadvantage. The RUPA A5 TV Box is another TV Box which has Kodi 17.1 “Krypton”. Below some screenshots.
RUPA Pyramid A5 is another successful TV Box from RUPA. A big plus for aluminum housing. TV Box copes well with 4K video playback. Of course, the TV Box has fewer features compared to the Q10 Pro / Q5 Pro, but it is enough to provide home entertainment at a good level (video, games, browser, apps). RUPA company should provide the firmware update via OTA, then it would be more convenient. Once again I want to say thanks to HiMedia company for sending us a RUPA A5 sample. If you are looking for a good quality TV Box for your home entertainment center and vendor support you should consider buying a RUPA A5. We recommend a RUPA A5 Android TV Box.
