The use of 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage is good for streaming movies and TV shows and you have the option
of converting external storage up to 64 GB via SD card.
Another positive point for this box is the use of Android 7.1
The use of Kodi media center is also a plus.
What I also like is that they included a USB 3.0 OTG on the box, this port can power those external hard drives that
require a USB 3.0.
I would like to classify this TV box as a cost-effective box for the use of streaming and mild gaming only.
So, when we look at its hardware, I see that lots of TV box manufacturers have decided to go with Rockchip CPUs. However,
the CPU used in this box only runs up to 1.5 GHz. While this may be sufficient to stream movies and TV shows, it’s not
going to do so well when it comes to playing games.
This is also affected by the GPU used which only runs up to 600MHz.
The use of only the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi band isn’t really much of a problem but it is an issue.
The blunder was not including Bluetooth technology in this box.
No antenna and infrared remote.
No vents at the bottom
