Scishion V88 Mini TV Box - £14.50 - Banggood with coupon see inside for info

Found 29th Jun 2017
Just found this coupon TBC17061 they have a banner when viewing a handful of budget boxes I found this to reduce it to £14.50 great for a secondary box for bedroom or holiday.

freaktab.com/for…dts

No bluetooth and no airplay, but for £14.50 I'm sure it will be great for basic multi-media and streaming and web browsing.

Probably the cheapest I've seen a box in a long time.

Be sure to choose UK plug and drop shipping and priority UK shipping. This will arrive within two weeks and helps to avoid customs charges though for £14.50 you should be exempt.

RK3299 processor and 1GB ram Android 5.1 it's not the latest version of Android but it wont be hard to side load apps as long as they don't require 64BIT processors.

Quick little side note these plugs may not have the EU / UK safety marks which is what I found with a different brand of box, to avoid this I purchased a DC to USB cable and now using a 5V 2a USB mains plug which is handy as I charge my phone and other devices from the same plug. I can confirm when my box arrives what size DC connector this box uses but my other box shares the same size as a Playstation Portable would have used.

Enjoy the deal, other boxes also are accepting this coupon but you will need to login / create an account to redeem.

Do not buy 1GB ram TV boxes, you will regret it. It needs to have at least S905X SoC, 2GB ram and Android 6.0. Heat down for this.

I have the same one bought last year from Gearbest. Works fine with Kodi pre-installed however, the version of Kodi being used may be out of date but you can easily remove the app and reinstall the latest from Googleplay which from last week was v17. From there you can do all the wonderful media player things this box can do after a bit of searching.

​ Can you recommend a good one at a decent price then please? I'm looking for one for bedroom preferably "fully loaded" and ready to go as I've never used one before. Thanks

Please explain, freaktab user comments are plentyful and other than these 1GB boxes not handling 4K that well and limited support for games from the store. Can confirm from a comment that emulation is doing well on these boxes (PSone, SNES, N64). The box specification you speak of cost almost double it depends on what you plan on doing with the box but I'm having this as a secondary box.

I've been buying these devices ever since the MK808 about four years ago and 1GB wasn't an issue back then on Android 4.2 I believe or which ever 4.X version of Android these came loaded with.

Performance with 1GB ram comes down to the rom loaded and comments point to the 5.1 Android boxes performing better than the 6.1 rom and modified roms do exist for these boxes.
I've got a identical spec one from gearbest that was posted on here about a month ago for about £17, runs the latest SPMC (kodi) perfect with the cosmic saints 4k build. loading time is slightly slower than my 2gb/32gb box but for the money can't fault it.
Found these a bit jerky compaired to my more expensive boxes, but cant complain for this price
Ignore people saying you NEED 2gb! I review Android boxes all the time and if its for Kodi, Showbox etc these will work fine

"fully loaded boxes" are not being advertised anymore. Kodi are trying to disassociate themselves with these boxes. So, whatever you do, do not ask for help with a "fully loaded" box on the kodi forum.

The addons you are referring to are easily installed if you google.

Are you ill?
had this one for over a year now and it does all the usual streaming stuff without wait hickup or stutter getting a faster box with more RAM is not necessary for Kodi and what not. Fully loaded is **** as half or more of the plugins will be outdated unstable or unsupported and will only disapoint you. install kodi and the add-ons you want yourself and it shines.

​I know, what I mean is ready to go as I'm not very tech savvy.

​I know, what I mean is ready to go as I'm not very tech savvy.

​If you get a box 'ready to go' you'll be disappointed soon.

The addons are all closing, relaunching, & changing repository. A few have done already, & the others will follow suit.

You need to be able to add new addons yourself or a month or two down the line the addons will relaunch again & you'll end up having to learn anyway. They're going to keep doing this to avoid potential legal consequences.

The guides are easy to follow, if you can read & follow basic instructions then you can do it. Plus the box will cost less!

I have this: ebay.co.uk/itm…C64 But basically any box with Android 6.0+ and 2GB+ and S905x+ is fine. Best one is on S912 SoC, but is around £50

Not the same product on eBay also the seller has such a low score would it be safe to buy from them.

code - TBC17061 - does require you to login to redeem.

Try a 2GB version ob a S912 cpu, and then tell me again if there are no issues please.
I'm going to mark this expired as of yesturday on US plug stock was available and it is unkown if they will include a UK adapter which Gearbest do supply with any non UK plug products.

Code is likely still valid for anyone still interested.

Had a look at that one but reviews were for when it was on android 5.1 and I read that android 6 update was buggy.

I went for this one which gets good reviews and has more storage:

Bought 2 of these from Banggood, not on this deal, but at roughly £18 each... one for me, one for dad.

One works fine which I will give to him, but the 2nd only worked for a short while and now cannot get any power to it - no lights to front panel (should be blue) and wont turn on. Tried different power adapters, including the iffy chinese one it came with... nowt.

Have messaged Banggood, and had no response. Guess this one is going down to experience. At least it was only £18. (_;)

Bought this 1GB box. It arrived within a week. As previously mentioned in other threads I installed No frills CPU control on performance level. Installed Mobdro, Showbox, Mxplayer (to play vids with) and All in one toolbox app, AceStream (for HD free footie) and acesoplisting (google it). And its worked like a charm. So happy with it. Only thing remote control is super simple and allows you to control but do not think you can browse online with it.

Definitely not accurate. 2GB minimum I am guessing is to play high draining games but to watch TV, movies, streaming 1GB is no problem.
Had mine for nearly a year but stopped responding recently. Just a red light. No reset hole for some reason.
I have a couple of 2gb boxes. They are more responsiveness and don't tend to lock up as much. However, once you are in an app such as Kodi, there seems to be little difference.
