Isn't the 32gb version the 5x not the A1?


I bought my Mum the Xiaomi MI A1 and I can confirm it has 64GB of memory and 4GB of RAM and the time I spent setting it up I was very impressed with the build quality and the specifications for the money.

Same thing happens for Global Versions. No news so there's usually a lot of doubt. See comments on this thread< when Redmi 4A Global Version was first posted on Hukd. The Redmi 4X Global Version was the same. First page of comments on this MIUI thread< suggested it doesn't exist. Similar doubts on early RN4 Global Version deals<. Sellers also listed Redmi Note 5A Prime Global Version for Singles Day before Malaysia or Singapore showed it on their Mi Sites. So it wouldn't be too surprising if this Mi A1 32GB is a similar story.

Note 4 battery is better, but I have the A1 and I am happy with battery, it is better than my nexus 5x and LG g3. Build quality of A1 is superior and more premium feel.

It does say "pre-order" so it is possibly a new (cheaper) release.

More HotChinaDeals. Love it. Another stocking filler sorted!

The last Kodi Krypton version is out now, build 17.6.

Kodi 18 will be called Leia.

This a "safer" box than the H96 PRO PLUS? that seems to have lot's of issues with overheating or power issues. Mostly want the box for emulation. Don't want to open the box up and have to mod it in anyway to fix cooling issues.

Price is good. I would be tempted If I could flash LibreELEC on it. I'm sort of out of the loop about all that

will this work with firestick

Bought one of these in my quest to find a decent remote.

PITA this one.

Build quality is awesome I will admit but I am yet to find a way to remap any buttons within Windows (my main HTPC Kodi build). Did manage to remap a couple within Kodi though.

There are hardcoded buttons which cant seem to be remapped. The remote uses basic HID drivers so in EventGhost they are a keyboard and will overwrite any actual buttons on a keyboard as well as the remote.

The power button initiates a full Windows shutdown. Volume also turns down Windows volume as well as Kodi's when remapped.

Airmouse is enabled by default and will turn on every time you pick it up.

When flipping over to keyboard it defaults to touchpad mode, you then spend a minute trying to get the the toggle button to flick to keyboad while fighting the G-Sensor for flipping back to remote mode, then defaulting back to touchpad mode when it flips back...

Shift key is on the right, dunno why but I found that highly annoying.

Didnt get round to trying on Android/LibreElec, though I might have better luck...

Not a fan of RockChips, the never seem to have as much support as Amlogic's. I think they were one of the offenders in the OpenSource issues a while back so I always stick to AM. This might have changed but fool me once...

I've noticed some quirks lately with LibreElec, mainly little bugs that have a bigger impact on my setup. Biggest one at moment is I have a central sources.xml with path sub in Kodi. LE either ignores it or wipes it. Infuriating, so moving back to the Android version on a couple of boxes for testing.

Plan for me is to have a central IPTV and DVR server with a Myth or TVHE to push everything to these little boxes as clients so have been buying the odd one here and there to play around with. Pi3 just wont cut it for me anymore so need something with a little more grunt!

Wow, a tablet on HUKD with a good resolution! Heat! I'm not familiar with this model but Teclast make good tablets generally, better than most brands Gearbest and the like stock.

I'm very happy with my Teclast T10 I bought from Gearbest so thumbs up here.

has 64GB, eMMC which is strange when there is no Windows dual boot I presume that they scrapped Windows 10 on it

The small items from Gearbest I have ordered usually take 2 to 3 weeks for me - same with Banggood.

This item is from Geekbuying and I have never used them.

Offers good experience for watching videos and browsing the Web. The 1920*1200 resolution boasts impressive color and clarity"

They seem to be quoting 2 different resolutions there - am I missing something?

Coming back to say thanks to OP, mine arrived two days ago and it is really good! I wasn't sure if I actually wanted it but I love it. It's decent for running (only shows time and distance during the run so not for hardcore runners), it's good for the sleep monitoring, I like the step count and that I can get notifications just for specific apps pushed to it (so I don't get work email). I like that it's waterproof for in the shower too.

Heartrate seems accurate enough for me, I can see when it's high Vs low and gives some guide on calories.

Well my order arrived, customs free & well packaged. Thanks OP!

How does is play music? Can you have apps such as Spotify? Does it require a phone? Or does it simply use an internal SD.

I'd be tempted if that phone could break my phone away from a run

Aren't they around the £100 region? Maybe I'm looking at the wrong model?

The Nividia shield definitely meets these requirements. and further runs Android TV OS compared to this box which has a customised Android 7.1 skin. The Nvidia shield is also 3 x priced, so horses for courses I guess.If you want to run Netflix in HD an equivalent option would be the Mecool M8S Pro L (note the 'L' at the end) which does have Widevine L1 and HDCP1.x; one of the very few Chinese boxes to meet Netflix HD requirements.

Thanks buddy I'll check this out too and wait for black Friday, fingers crossed. Would prefer HD so would rather get something that will last as long as my TV

I have to disagree to a certain extent. I've had crappy old Android boxes that are slow (the Fire Stick is also slow for example) whereas this box will suffer minimal lag and has better wifi properties than boxes of similar price.
