Amazing what you can get for the money. I absolutely don't need one but I'm still tempted anyway!
Good price, heat added. I was tempted but I doubt it would run kodi much better than my fire tv stick. Bargain for anyone wanting to try kodi though!

​works fine on kodi
This Kodi nonsense is getting out of control. Companies are using it to sell wonky hardware and their customers seem to think it's some sort of public service.
Got one of these from Gearbest a few months ago, and was DOA. Trying to get that sorted with them took a few weeks, and all I got was credit on my account for the value. Searching Google at the time, to try and see if I could fix myself, and it seems these boxes are riddled with issues.

Ended up getting one of these:

A couple of quid extra, and has a UK plug. Set it up last week when it arrived and it's a lot faster that my Fire Stick when using Kodi, especially for PLP.

I hear you!, can be a right pain in the rear that?. :-(

Glad you got it all gooooood in the end. :-)

Your link is less than the price I paid for my own Deal a few months back!, if only I'd like waited some, huh? (that's hindsight for you ..... ) lol.

I hear you, and me too!, despite me having it already ..... dwl!.
I have an android box that uses same Allwinner H3 SoC as found in the Beelink X2. Compared to Fire TV stick, my H3 based box does seem a bit more responsive when navigating KODI menus etc. The H3 is a quad core 1.2 GHz vs dual core 1.0 GHz of the Fire TV stick.

Earlier versions of KODI do not output 1080 correctly on the H3 - the video is downscaled by KODI to 720p. Fortunately, it looks like this has been fixed starting with KODI Jarvis 16.

If you specifically need to use the USB sockets, then the X2 is probably fine as a budget box.

fwiw, I find the catchup TV apps from BBC, ITV, 5 and Channel 4 work very well with the bluetooth remote supplied with the Fire TV stick. The same apps from Google Play just don't work so well with the standard cheap android remote supplied with android TV boxes.


Hi guys in need of a bit of help, does anybody know if you can get the vhx.tv app on any of these android boxes?
I know they have an android app just wanted to double check you can get it for these android boxes before I consider buying one, also do they have the full google play store? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

​I agree. Cheap & nasty Android boxes have become KODI boxes.

And when buyers realise it after using...they curse KODI & not the crap they bought!!!
Amazing bit if kit, great deal for the upstairs tv

With lots of messing around.

If going for one of these (And want to keep Android) then best ot go for the new Rockchip based ones.

If you want openelec with some effort go for Amlogic.

Or simplicity go for raspberry pi.

My experience, kodi on a fire device is sh!!!te, you want to run 'native' and with a box that supports CEC ie recognizes your TV remote!
MXQ red stripe with kszaqs libreelec is awesome for a £20 box....

Because they are buying with it pre-installed, they won't have the foggiest what to do when a channel goes down or is taken off.

The best way is to do a clean install of Kodi yourself & install the add-ons of your choice and not of some 11 year old kid in the Far East

At least you control what you install & watch & know what to do when things go wrong!

Agree with some of that but not sure I know what to do when it goes wrong
Old version of Android, not recommended

​When mine goes wrong (loose term that could mean anything ) I just remove Kodi & reinstall, re-add 'Fusion' & install my add-ons from there. Granted I only have a handful of add-ons so not a big task
Price is slowly going up - and when I try to enter the voucher code, the price goes UP even further.


Yeah - voucher code no longer works that I can see.

Why anyone would pay £100 for an android box is beyond me

Rather just install remix OS on one of my rigs

Thanx for that, I had queried something very similar upon another Android Device Deal a few weeks back now I think?.

Didn't get an answer at the time, but do have one now via your own comment, hehehe. :-)

I know to many people who have bought preloaded and it's messed up and they blame the box/stick. It's a shame people don't try to educate themselves about how it works before saying kodi socks etc etx
