Mibox international version is far superior.

Mibox international version is far superior.


No it isnt. The specs are worse (Octacore Cortex-A53 vs Quadcore Cortex-A53 for the Mi TV Box), worse graphics (Mali-T820 vs Mali-450), its got less RAM, less storage, runs older Android and generally has pretty mediocre reviews.

So essentially worse in every way

I think you deserve some heat for the comparison

Not true.

Just because it's Octacore doesn't mean higher performance, just look at the iPhone. There are some performance gains but it's nothing major.

Official Android TV is far superior to an Android box running Android also.

Just because it has a higher GPU doesn't mean you're necessarily going to benefit either.

Oh and the Xiaomi is Level 1 Widevine. A major plus in my eyes.

So essentially far superior in every way.

P.S The only Chinese box I'd buy is the M8S PRO W, M8S PRO Plus or M8S PRO L. The M8S PRO L contains the SOC you mention AND is Widevine level 1.

It's swings and roundabouts dependent upon individual needs.

If purchasing the GT1 Ultimate then immediately flash one of the custom firmwares from Superceleron. 1 normal Android and 1 ATV.

I wouldn't say android TV is superior over android. If you are just using a remote then sure it's a better experience, otherwise standard android wins in nearly all other aspects the average user cares about, it's more complete.

But what's the point in an OS that's not optimised for the thing it's being viewed on? That's like buying a cement mixer for blending a smoothie. It'll be far more optimised for the hardware.

I own a Beelink MiniMXIII and the user experience with a remote is shocking.

Who would want to put up with these bugs? The Mi Box just works.

Bugs V1:
  • NO WIF/BT? SIMPLE FLASH THIS FILE (SCV1ATV 9377 WIFI/BT SUPPORT) BY TWRP AND IT WILL FIX IT!
  • Sorry due to need stock custom kernel for VP9 to work, i cant use my Kernel.. so NO PROPER RGB FIX... it uses the one from stock.
  • On 1º boot when you setup in english language the on screen keyboard may not show when you going to put you wifi password, to fix it go back and change to another language and then go right back again to english and the on screen keyboard should be working now(you need to click it): YOU ONLY NEED TO DO THIS ONCE AND ONLY IN ENGLISH!
  • Only update "su" if you are going to to stay at root if are not going to stay at root and you are going to be doing a lot of changes between the two dont update it! Or you will get a boot animation loop...
  • Ugoos Firefly it needs ugoos kernel so dont turn it on because it wont work...
  • Google cast dont work and removed(missing Widevine L1).
  • Possible more!

I don't think you understand that every box there is has bugs, including the Mi Box.
Darn that didn't last had this in my GearBest basket for a week and I've got £28 credit to use.

It really depends what you are actually doing. I have a Nvidia shield tv (android TV) and a sunvell t95m plus (android). I use mouse and keyboard for both. I barely touch the shield at the moment because the sunvell does everything I need just as well from a user perspective and has the full play store. Some apps I sideloaded on the shield are completely incompatible which is an issue for me. Remember, android is optimised to run on micro tech in super thin phones, these boxes have room to use larger, cheaper, but just as capable hardware, and don't need to fit a screen nor a battery. They work very very well. You say you use a remote, which is the problem, and if it isn't possible for you to use a different input device then android TV is the best choice for YOU, its superior to you but not in general.

It's still a superior platform to using a regular box running Android. It forces makers to cater for Level 1 Widevine - a must in any Android box. You've got the advantage of voice search as well as their renowned Google search built in.

Saying I'm using a remote as the problem, is just idiotic. Are you now going to get on the blower to Sky and Virgin saying "Yeah I see your issue, it's a remote. You've got to use a mouse". There's a reason we use remotes vs mice on the TV platform and it's far easier and quicker to use than a mouse.

There's also a reason that your Sunvell has a full App store - it's running a full Android build vs a platform dedicated and optimised for the TV.

Don't take the idiom "TV box" too literally, not everyone wants an "android box" just for visual media in their living room, it's a mini pc running an android based operating system. Of course you don't have to use a mouse, if you did you'd have a considerably better experience, otherwise it's not suitable for you. Certain app developers cater for your needs, but they don't need to, it's widely accepted that you should use a mouse to roughly emulate screen touches. Again, it depends on your own needs, they each have their advantages, but none superior over the other in general.
