been using h8 octacore 1GB/8GB for a few months without issues. recently my apps start to lag. I only use Kodi and free iptiv app.
for kodi, the video will tend to buffer more often. also every time halfway watching, the video, suddenly will black out and after few minutes it will jump out to the previous menu.
for free iptv app, cant seem to start the app properly. i click on the app and the screen will go black (as if loading) then jump out to main menu. sometimes have to select repeatedly to get it loaded.
already tried clearing cache and freeing some space by uninstalling some unused apps. checked status, seem to have reasonable amount of ram and storage.
is it ok to update my H8 octacore to latest version? currently I select OTA check, it says already with latest version (HMD-1.0.8). But i check on futeko and himedia support page, latest version is HMD-1.1.2. Is the firmware safe to upgrade or are there different firmware for different region? mine came with mangotv launcher.
if apps that stream online hd incl kodi and other iptv start to stutter, it may be due to connectivity issues - broadband unstable, heavy traffic, poor site/links maintenance. free and illegit ones more so.
try with legit ones like netflix or youtube to see if it is the same.
firmware... whether there are multiple versions - yes, best to ask yr seller to avoid problems like that.
i think 1.1.2 is the latest.
