Sunvell T95Z Plus is a good TV Box with great potential (considering S912 chip). It has an unusual shape, which does not will appeal to everyone. Well suited to playback 4K. TV Box has minor bugs that do not have a big impact on the operation. Once again I want to say thanks to Gearbest for sending us a T95Z plus Android TV Box sample. If you are looking for an inexpensive TV Box, which also looks unusual, is stable and will be able to use it for home entertainment, you should consider buying Sunvell T95Z Plus.

Sunvell T95Z Plus TV Box Video playback
Video playback by Kodi Jarvis 16.1 and MX Player runs smoothly and stable. MX Player runs smoothly and stable. The T95Z Plus without problem seems plays movies with the resolution of 480p,720p and 1080p (24fps, 30fps, 60fps) and also 4K (60fps) with various codecs videos such as H.264, H.265, MPEG2, MPEG4, RMVB, and audio – DTS and AC3. Dolby Digital 5.1 passthrough worked fine via HDMI. Also, I tested several video formats – AVI, MKV, MP4 (typical formats in which it holds the majority of movies), ISO and also videos was played fine. The tested TV Box plays video files in 4K (also 60fps) almost without any major problems. The following table of video samples tested for Kodi. TV Box Also copes well with playing the video on YouTube – videos play in 1080p. Also, we tried to play VP9 4K video runs smoothly.
The Sunvell T95Z Plus is a striking looking unit. With its hexagonal shell and interesting geometric detail, it definitely stands out in a good way. There’s a multicolored LED strip that lights up in either green, blue or light blue. It also doubles as a status light. I love how it looks but I can also see it being distracting in a dark environment so thankfully you can turn it off via a dedicated button on the included remote control.
The front of the unit is relatively bare, featuring a large LED display which displays the time and status indicators for things like wifi and Ethernet connectivity. Ports are located towards the back of the unit. Going from left to right, we have a USB 2.0 port, Ethernet, optical audio output, DC In, HDMI out, composite out, another USB 2.0 port and a micro SD card slot. I’m glad Sunvell opted to keep the HDMI and Power ports at the back of the unit. Given that these are always connected, it helps keep things neater.
The Sunvell T95Z Plus automatically powers up when plugged in. A cold boot takes around 30 seconds with a wireless keyboard and mouse connected. Sunvell’s launcher is modern and colorful, featuring brightly colored tiles for the launchers various shortcuts and folders.
Aside from dedicated buttons for apps like Kodi, there’s also a customisable row of shortcuts to the bottom and folders for Music and Video apps that you can fill. There are quite a few pre-installed apps such as FilmOn, Facebook, and Netflix in addition to Kodi 16.1.
Kodi has been pre-loaded with a number of add-ons but there’s also a dedicated app for installing and updating add-ons for you which is a nice touch.There seems to be Over-the-Air (OTA) update support. However, there wasn’t an update at the time of writing so I wasn’t able to test it out.
Main Home Launcher
Sunvell T95Z Plus has a well-known launcher, which could already see in other TV Box. When you start there is the status bar, you can turn it off. The device worked (typically) in the resolution of FHD 1920×1080 (1080p 60Hz) but you can also adjust the preferred resolution or set the auto switch. Everything worked stable and very quickly without delays. Unfortunately, despite the installation of Netflix, play the video takes a few seconds, the error occurs. T95Z Plus Box support also DLNA, Miracast. We had no problem with Ethernet and WiFi connection to the router and to the Internet (Ethernet: Download – 316.49Mbps Upload – 41.60Mbps, WiFi: Download – 41.08Mbps Upload – 40.55Mbps). In addition to the remote control ( who also seen in other TV boxes, it works correctly, there were no problems) used a standard keyboard, mouse and Gamepad GameSir G3s. The T95Z Plus TV Box is another TV Box which has Kodi 16.1 with AddonsTV. There are minor bugs, for example, when you start the device “default” is Bluetooth enabled, it displays an icon Bluetooth. When in use there were no major problems. Below some screenshots.
