i got hold of a tx3 mini, played with it for a few hours.
for its price of rm111, it is a no brainer, best value for money for simple use.
amlogic s905w, 2+16gb, android 7.1.2, build dated 2018.12.29.
non-gigabit rj45, 2.4ghz only, works good even for 50ft.
comes with renamed kodi17.6.
has (simple) native video player app.
does 1080p, 4k, hdr, 10bit rips quite well.
can do dd, dd+, dts playback.
not smooth for full 1080p/2160p bdmv, struggles with ddtruehd, dtshdma audio.
has auto framerate switching feature but does not work very well.
can't do astrogo; closing root does not help.
other simple popular apps - rss, adrama, youtube, etc., no problem.
gets warm but not hot.
tiny in size - smaller than a burger, can fit into yr pocket.
i suppose tanix tx5 max with s905x2/android 8.1 would be a lot more powerful, more suitable for bigger tasks.
