4gb/64gb with Android 9 Amlogic quad core Cortex A55 processor. Sounds Ok to me.

Never had an Android TV box. Thinking of getting one for a spare TV. Would use it for YouTube and streaming from a Western Digital My cloud disk drive with media.
Odd question - Can you install banking apps on these?!

A very capable Android box.
I'd buy it from Amazon as I know for sure this has a Gigabit ethernet port and runs to spec. amazon.co.uk/ZMQ…r=8
Download CoreELEC (amlogic ng img.gz) and extract it relkai.coreelec.org/ and flash it on a micro-SD card using sourceforge.net/pro…er/ turn off the box, insert the card, push a toothpick into the AV port til you click the button in there, then plug in the power until CoreELEC logo appears. This way you can dualboot Android and CoreELEC.

"Odd question - Can you install banking apps on these?!" I would definitely not do that on Chinese android box! It's quite limited Android so don't expect same as phone OS! It's mostly used for free IPTV.

pretty much ALL android boxes use a modified version of android and come already rooted so I doubt it and wouldn't like to risk giving Mitt details to a knock off android box

and why would you even want to check your banking on your big screen TV?
Edited by: "kobrakaan1" 14th Jan
The problem with these is it's pot luck. There's so many of them running software (android) that isn't designed specifically for Android boxes so there can be a lot of issues.

Some of these have memory leaks where it doesn't free up the RAM once apps using RAM are closed (Making it run very slowly until device is rebooted). Some are dangerous which is often down to the generic poor quality plugs used (Yes, lots of people have said about smoke coming out and it catching fire).

Unless massive established brands starts making android boxes, I personally wouldn't trust them. QC is minimal so even if someone says it's great for them, another for someone else might be filled with problems.

I would say buy a cheap youview box from local FB groups or go for the standard of Roku, Apple tv, Fire tv, etc. I believe Chromecast can cast stuff onto the TV from your phone which would be cheaper and way more reliable than an generic android box

Does not have usb c. Some boxes like x88 max + and x99 have usb c . Usb c can be connected by usb c hub to expand functionality and additional charging capability or additional display etc . Still hot .

So there is no such thing that can actually behave like an android phone and be able to install all the apps like you could on a phone?
Such as a VPN first of all?

Bluestacks android emulator for PC?


Should've said it needs to be small, portable, so that I can connect to it my downstairs TV and run a VPN on it and a few other android apps.
Would the Xiaomi mi s box be able to do this, is that a better option?
Or even a small win10 pc would do...

I'd probably say best to check reviews. It's difficult to know features of them all as there's just so many.

The Xiaomi mi is one of the best of a bad bunch. You can potentially install a VPN on it I recall.

A small windows 10 system would be pushing the price beyond that. Even with a cheapo small shuttle form factor, with HD and ram to run a droid emulator like bluestacks its going to be in the region of £100. Albeit much more reliable.

On Amazon (which is the best option regarding free returns) the Mi is around £60 atm. Probably the best option for that price for what you want.

Otherwise you can just take a punt at a cheaper box which may or may not work as desired (even the brand probably don't know as they just get them commissioned to spec and have their stamp slapped on the front)

The Mi Box runs Android TV not Android. It might not support everything they need.
Beelink is a well known brand in this realm.
Edited by: "rev6" 14th Jan
So I've read too, android tv would be a bit different than just android as phones use.
Even if it's a bit more expensive than this, it wouldn't matter, as long as it does what I need. I'll try and have a look at that beelink thing.

What do you need it for?
rev614/01/2020 21:18

What do you need it for?


As I said above, mostly for running a VPN app, which is either available on android or Windows, so I can connect to various geoblocked streaming sites. I can do that just fine upstairs, as my TV is connected to my laptop via HDMI and I can do it on my phone, however not on the downstairs TV. Thing I liked about the Mi s box is it also has the Chromecast built in, so I can use that HDMI slot, but unsure if the mi box runs full android or just the limited TV version.

£25 or less on Aliexpress for the newer version with gigabit ethernet, I paid £19 in December (for the 32gb one, 64GB was £3 more), shipped from the UK, came in under a week.

Anyway decent box and runs Coreelec like an absolute week.

What are you on about? Coreelec is Linux so can't even run apks which is an android application format. At least check your facts before your manic rambling. Anyway coreelec is a lightweight os (not a 'skin') designed for running kodi with minimal overheads. Kodi is completely legal media playback software supported by lots of large companies and communities.

I'm not too clued up on these, considering one for IPTV rather than Chromecast like currently do.

Would you recommend 32 or 64, and are the remote control options worth adding on? Or better buying separate at a later date?

Cheers!

I don't use it for iptv so can't advise on that, but I'm sure there's lots of info if you search it (depending if you'll use android or coreelec/kodi).

Size wise I got 32gb as I know I'll never use the space as I only use coreelec which runs off a micro sd card (at least until I do an internal install but even then that only needs 8gb max). The extra space was a little more then though, for £2 or whatever it is you might as well get the 64gb.

Remote wise I didn't bother, I like the stock remote it comes with.
