Yes. You may ask the seller of the TV Box, whether he will install the relevant app. Some will do it for free, some for a fee.

x99max+ has overheat issue. The temperature will rise up to 80'c when loading and 60'c when idling.
h96max x3 has better temperature management. Just around 50'c-60'c during loading.

However, I can easily solve my x99max+ overheating issue by putting a fan under the tvbox. The temperature just straight go down to 60'c when loading.

For price to value, X99Max+ is cheaper. For better performance, I think H96Max X3 is better.

Err.. nope. AMLogic is an American tech company that primarily designs and produces various System on Chip (SoC)... Think Intel or AMD, etc.. They aren’t a brand of tv box.. Also, heres a dedicated thread for Android OS, etc powered boxes. There’s tons of info contained in it. I advise you to swing by and arm yourself first. Understand what you be getting into.. I recently posted some videos about the Beelink GS-King X box. You might want to take a look at it too as I go into details and show what can be achieved (legally of course) with a decent box. Check the thread out or links in my signature below..
Evpad is like an Astro decoder.. Except that Astro is 100% legit, while evpad isn’t. Don’t let their marketing fool you either. The SIRIM certification is just for the hardware being “clean”, their software isn’t. IMHO, you should only consider them if you have significant trouble setting up yourself. Normally, I wouldn’t even recommend them.

Lots of info to digest. Thanks a lot!!!

6 Years ago: Look for TV box based on technical performance (Chip Type/RAM/Reviews reference) , plan to learn all about KODI, Setting up the streaming source. Downloading the app (Kena Bayar) .... I Give Up .. That TV Box is gathering dust somewhere in the store. bangwall.gif

2 Year ago: My technically challenged wife, bought a TV box all set up with 2 main app.
Malaysia Live - Works like a TV (Astro Channel+Malaysia+Singapore)
Video On Demand - Data Base of dramas from Korea, China, Japan, Netflix (Updated with latest episode Daily). Asian Movies, English Movies,
--- Still going strong , the app did not die off or requires "subscription" icon_idea.gif

2 day ago - Passed the old box to my mom and bought another newer model of the same TV box my wife bought.
Everything is still there but now got 2 more Naughty TV and VOD app brows.gif

Conclusion: Being technical does not can't beat blind luck doh.gif

Partly wrong... Watch my review of the Beelink GS-King X.. The part 3 where I clearly show you can achieve Netflix FHD and it’s with surround sound too. Plenty other boxes certified or not can do the same. Not just the Mibox S. Nvidia Shield la, Apple TV 4K la, Roku la, etc.. That’s why I recommended that dedicated thread in my earlier post. The information is out there.. Just read je... We’ve discussed it all. Noobs welcome.. just read first.

Edited... Seems you were referring to a single box vs “all other boxes” except the Mibox.. notworthy.gif

Conclusion.... Just because you couldn’t achieve or be bothered to achieve the same results all by yourself, does NOT mean they aren’t achievable easily.. I can setup Kodi to be the only app I ever need to use to consume media on my box. If there are people who’d like to learn how? There’s also the Kodi dedicated thread, where we discuss and show how.. once again, the info is all out there and we give freely..

To follow up on my previous post... I decided to make a few videos as proof of concept and to also clear up some misconceptions about what can be achieved with Kodi & just a tiny bit tech know-how...I also tried to make the videos noob-friendly with explanations so you know what's happening and if you'd like to tweak yours to better suit your needs and viewing preferences..No advancedsettings.xml to code..no intricate setup.. Just simple instructions and you can be up and running with the best soon enough. Below is a quoted post I shared from the Kodi dedicated thread. If it helps you, do hit the Like button, share if you can to others and subscribe to my channel. I'll post up more tips and tricks plus addon updates, etc.. Thanks.

Not sure if this is the correct place to ask this question but here it goes.

I have never use an android box in my entire life but can it provide any show that i want, including all the cartoons?
Currently im using a smartTV too.

The reason i wanted something like this is because these options are not so good:
a) hypptv - very few favorite shows and it is a scheduled program
b) netflix - limited seasons/ episodes in malaysian channel
c) online stream - link sometimes broken and potential virus infection
Thank you.

Just go ahead and get either the LongTv box or iboite x . it have a lot of cartoon movie and even live tv for only now 299,.

Go to digital mall and tried this out

Forget bout buying some empty box and loaded up with apps that requires subscripotion it stupid to do that. when long tv provided u apps to watchi this without subscrioption

just make sure your line internet is 100Mbps and it should be ready to watch out of the box.

I owned longtv and a couple of tv boxes and i can say longtv is the best.

longtv is cheaper btw ..

dont look at specs as specs dont play a huge role here. Long tv is octacore with 1GB ram and yet the channel is clearer and faster than other boxes spec.

look at SVI cloud, Iboite X . Longtv

I dont really care for someone who makes all the claims in the world.

Im just sharing information to whoever who just wanted to buy a box go home plug into tv and can watch al the show they wanted without paying for subscription.

in the end if the product work without you needing to setup here or there,. it is a good product .

our friend above have a youtube channel to which he want u guys to subscribe to and increase his follower.

i dont . i am not even a reseller of any boxes ...

Btw im a Linux System Specialist .. so i do know my way around all boxes.

Nice try fam... A "Unix specialist" that says hardware doesn't matter.. 1GB RAM is enough.. lolwut... laugh.gif Just because you drove a kancil and liked it doesn't mean it's a good car for everyone.. As an "IT specialist", you should know this basic concept.. So forgive me when I say...You do not know your way around boxes or heck are a Unix specialist (I play with Ubuntu, Manjaro, Fedora, Linux Mint, OpenSUSE, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, Tails and even Kali Linux..I'm also comfortable with macOS, Windows, Android, Windows Mobile, iOS, Remix OS, Chrome OS, etc to name a few...So I do know my shizz yeah..No need blow trumpet) sweat.gif . Why? cuz even with over a decade of experience on my part. As an IT specialist, I know and understand that tech changes and generally gets better with time. So I'm still learning till date.

FYI.... I got into the YouTube thingy because enough folks asked me to. Each video I make takes a ton of my free time, I could otherwise be spending with my family or heck, just relaxing on my own. Notice I don't show my face either as I value my anonymity and not interested in being ultra famous to be stopped in the street. I review items in my unique style because I want to help others spend their money in the best ways possible and according to their needs and not because it pays my bills or that I'm hungry. I'm not making any bold unverifiable claims here. So if I say A works? it works and if i say it doesn't? Then it doesn't at that time. This is the internet age and everything tech can be easily verified, so why would I be "making all the claims in the world"? Besides, there's video evidence now to go with my extensive text only reviews, comments and posts.. haha...

Lastly, i ask people to sub cuz I want to help as many people as possible and the best way to do so is to grow the sub base, forcing YouTube's algorithm to do it's magic. Got people buy subs and like all.. Nah, I don't and won't roll like that. Organic growth even if slow is my game. Thanks for checking out my channel though.. Make sure to subscribe to learn from an equally learning specialist yeah. Feel free to like and share my videos yeah if it helps you (I'm sure a few will) or helps others. You have a great day.. notworthy.gif

i been using mi box and also mi tv stick for my bedroom...
just ok performance price wise for the spec but then the device is google certified device with official google tv os...
if wanna install unknown source for "ahem2" to the box should be no issue since you can use "filecomander" that ur can download in app store to easily transfer the apk file to the box.
