Thank you for this, been waiting for this to come down in price. Especially now that it's on Android 8.

Heat added.

It is case by case... Usually pass without checking, but I had cases where I was asked to pay to customs.

No the Chinese version does not have Google play and is bloated with Chinese junk, I ordered and received it, don't use it now

No, you are not right. It is international version and is stated that language is English.
Can you mirror YouTube with this?
Isnt the latest android software 8.0.0? Or at least 7.1 on boxes?

I didn't get charged when I ordered this, so I think this will be the same as it's the similar sized package. I've only ever been charged when I ordered a large Air Purifier from them.

Spec says Android 6.0

Apparently android 8 updates are being pushed over the air.

The box should come with android 6 as standard, probably why advert has not been updated. But hopefully I'll get the update when I power it on. Fingers crossed!

(Edit: oh dammit)

Yeah I received one from Gearbest last month with no customs charge and took exactly a week to arrive. There was an over the air update to Oreo 8 which has worked bug free for me. Might be worth forking out the £2 extra for delivery insurance as I did as value was over £30 etc but you might not have any problem.
Agreed, make sure u buy delivery insurance. Happen to me, and gearbest ask me to check with my local post office

That recommendation confuses me. If I order a thing and it doesn't arrive, gearbest send another one or refund me. If I order one with delivery insurance and it doesn't arrive, gearbest send another or refund me and then later claim money from the insurance company. It makes no difference to me whether they're out of pocket but if I pay for insurance I'm out of pocket.

Does the insurance work differently?

If you mean sending the plaing video to the mi tv, yes it should work

If you don't take out insurance, especially with a delivery method that doesn't have a tracking number and it doesn't arrive, GB themselves will almost certainly not refund you, although Paypal might.

So always worth taking out the insurance if not using a air courier such as DHL.

And always factor in import charges as whist you may not get charged, it often stings when you do, especially on higher priced items.

Which one do you use? I have had a mibox for sometime and it's a nice box just don't like it being WiFi only.
Can you install any android app on it?
What about apps that are not on play store?

You can sideload although with Android ATV, they are not always displayed correctly and can at times not give access to some app options.

You can side load them and use the side load launcher for easy access.
Aren’t you better off spending more and getting the nvidea shield?

Aren’t you better off spending more and getting the nvidea shield?


The shield is an impressive box, but if all you are going to do is watch Netflix, Youtube and IPTV it's overkill
These are great boxes.

I also own nvidia shield and it's just as fast.

The new oreo update helped increase its speed and I have no issues with it.

This officially supports Netflix and also has chromecast support so I highly recommend buying it

At 3x the price I don't think that's a viable option for some.

Especially if all they want to do is stream there is no need for the shield
Any reason this is better than a chromecast ultra? Is it just apps built in? I got an ultra from cash converters for £35 but looking for another '4k' device for conservatory

You can install apps and navigate with a remote and use apps such as Kodi

You can also install third party apps outside the play store such as terranium TV
Had one for few weeks now. Just updated to 8.0. I mainly use it for the smart IPTV app but also a good media player

So this can act as a Chromecast replacement?
I like Ubox more

Yes it can as it has chromecast built into it already
These have locked bootloaders and can not be rooted or flashed with custom firmware.
