A lot of people keep asking me what TV Box should they buy. Well the answer to that question is not that easy because everyone has different needs and also different price range. So let’s try to put an order into this question.
Amazon Fire TV Stick (Firestick) – NEW Version
This is without doubt the most cheap device and also the slowest (dual-core cpu at 1Ghz). When comes to KODI it performs pretty decently but if you want to install the latest build, just forget about it. It comes with an excellent remote control, the closed ecosystem from Amazon which you can easily by-pass (even though it is a pain in the ass!) but no keyboard so you may have to purchase one. Decent but nothing special, just the essential. My opinion, invest 10$ more and get something better!
Amazon Fire TV
The next solution from Amazon. Overall is a decent box with excellent build quality. Specs-wise we find a Quadcore CPU (a dual-core at 2.0Ghz & another dual-core CPU at 1.6Ghz), a PowerVR GX6250 GPU, 2Gb of RAM and Dual BAnd Wifi. The only downside is the 4K supported is “just” at 30 fps when the S905X and S912 CPU from Amlogic can deliver easily 4K at 60 fps (fps= frames per second). If you need this device for Amazon Prime content you will be very satisfied. But when it comes to KODI you may look elsewhere at this price and specs. Excellent remote control with voice control (Alexa).
Beelink MiniMXIII 2
One of the smallest yet very performing boxes! Powered by Android 6 Marshmallow comes with 2gb of RAM, an Amlogic S905X 64bit cpu, a Mali 450 Pentacore gpu and with an HDMI 2.0 output so you can enjoy 4K Movies at 60FPS! Overall an excellent device, my only two downsides: the cheap in hand feeling of the remote control which works great though and some heat when stressed that didn’t not cause though any problems! For my review on the older version (MXIII 1) Beelink MiniMXIII 1 click here.
Sunvell T95M / T95X
Two of the best value/price Android TV Boxes on the market! Both feature 2Gb of RAM, 8Gb internal memory, Android Marshmallow 6.0 (they will work with the upcoming KODI 17), HDMI 2.0. The main difference between the two models are that the T95M is powered by the Amlogic S905 CPU, the T95X by the latest Amlogic S905X. If you are serious about 4K get the T95X. In any other case the T95M is your must have Android TV budget device of the year2016! More info on T95M and on T95X.
One of the best sellers of the second half of year 2016, is powered by the Amlogic S912 Octacore 64bit CPU and the Mali T820-MP3 GPU, with 2Gb of RAM and 16Gb internal memory, offers some of the best specs an Android TV can offer at a very low price. Of course after the great popularity this device got the prices have risen but you still can get it for an honest price (Amazon, Gearbest). The Gt1 is perfect for KODI and other media player but also for Android gaming since it is very powerful and comes with Android 6 Marshmallow!
MECOOL BB2 PRO
A new entry of the last quarter for 2016, sports the Amlogic S912 Octa-core 64bit CPU, the Mali T820-MP3 GPU, 3Gb of DDR4 RAM (the only one on the market!), 16Gb internal eMMC and Dual Band WiFi b/g/n/ac. If you are into 4K, lots of streaming and multi-tasking this is an amazing device for you! Android 6 by default and all of that at a very low price considering the device. Playback on KODI is flawless and updates OTA are quite frequent as well. Future proofness at low cost.
Himedia Q10 Pro
Was the first Android TV Box that supported 4K HDR @ 60 FPS! The image and audio quality (Dolby 7.1) is simply amazing at maximum settings and the connectivity is simply fantastic. Also it hosts a HDD bay so you can expand the default 16Gb of internal up to 6TB. Quad core 64bit CPU, Mali-720 GPU, 2GB of RAM and a beautiful touch capacitive front LED panel complete the main specs of this aluminum device. For my complete review on the Himedia Q10 Pro click here.
Without doubt the top of the category! Powered by the best CPU, the Tegra X1, the Shield TV is capable of flawless 4K HDR playback, has 3gb of RAM, hosts the most powerfull GPU with 256 cores and delivers some exclusive features like PC gaming, voice command, Netflix in 4K HDR, Youtube in 4K, Plex Media Server with hardware transcoding. Even if it uses Android and not a KODI-based OS, the performance in KODI is outstanding! You can install any build you want, the playback is outstanding, it comes with an excellent remote control (the best in the category) and there is a Pro version with 500gb! For gaming is simply the best, comes with a fantastic gamepad for experiencing the best games from Google Play Store and the NVIDIA GeForce Now even the most demanding! For my review on the NVIDIA Shield click here.
RAW Media Mini HTPC
If you want more than just an Android TV Box, then this is a very valid alternative! The Mini by RAW Media is a mini HTPC with an Intel CPU, all the standard PC capabilities and can be customized as any HTPC. It runs on Linux and other than KODI you can run whatever Linux application you want, use it as a server or even install Windows on it! A great plus the USB 3.0 that means very high speed and the phenomenal Rii i8+ backlight keyboard/remote that comes included! For my review on the RAW Media Mini HTPC click here.
