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.

There are certain apps you can install on your Android Box like KODI - which gives you access to a lot of (free but illegal) content. However, setting it up can be cumbersome, especially if you're using a cheapo android box.

My house is currently using Nvidia Shield for KODI & Netflix

but now i thought of getting 1 so i can let my son watch cartoon shows.
currently netflix has limited seasons/ favorite cartoon and hypptv programs are scheduled shows.

My lg smart TV can go online stream but have to use remote control manually press keys and close all ads. Very troublesome. Plus most of the time cannot watch due to memory full issue and have to clear memory.

So i am thinking of an external streaming device.

It's honestly worth it + you get Nvidia stream gaming service. My father bought it via Amazon actually, on a good discount. When it came here had to go declare at SIRIM.

I can't really tell you how to set up KODI and such, because my father was the one that did it - but he had a lot trouble in the beginning lol

As for me, I still prefer a HTPC - much more control compared to an Android Box.

You can get it cheaper if you buy it yourself and ship to malaysia using buynship
1 guy in a popular fb streaming group is selling it for RM980. But delivery takes about 3 weeks

HyppTV, i think you can buy a cheap empty tvbox from shopee or lazada then look for MYIPTV4K to subscribe RM150/half year.
Online stream, personally I do not recommend Kodi. I prefer to use "xfplay" if you are Chinese user because you can visit ixftv.com with this app to play any China, HK, Korean, Japan, US dramas and movies with Chinese subtitles. xfplay can be downloaded from Google play store or http://www.xfplay.com

I personally recommend you to buy an open source tvbox, just stop believe that kind of evpad, svicloud, longtv etc.
Just go for the amlogic S905X3 tvbox, make sure there have 4GB ram, gigabit LAN port, support 5GHz wifi and support 4K 60hz with HDR.
The price was just around RM150~RM200 only. I do not recommend evpad, better just go subscribe MYIPTV4K and pay for RM150 every half year. All their channels are smooth and high definition. Also comes with subtitles.

There have Google Play store and also you can manually install Aptoide TV by download the apk from here https://tv.aptoide.com.
Mostly the open source tvbox can be customized and rootable. You also can change to your favorite TV launcher such as Ugoss launcher, ATV launcher or others.

The most important thing is amlogic S905X3 tvbox is fast and the price is cheap. Faster than most of the evpad, svicloud, longtv tvbox outside there.
EVPAD has lifetime axtro, singapore, indonesia, thailand, china, hong kong, taiwan, sports channels, national geographics channels etc.. However, the big disadvantages that I really don't like is their servers, some of their channels have error and cannot be load. Next is most of their channels don't have subtitles. Meaning that I am watching most of the channels that I'm totally not understand what did he/she talking about. Not worth if we watch a Korean drama in tvN without subtitles.

I have tried many types of IPTV out there, so far the only best IPTV outside there is MYIPTV4K. I'm also not to help the provider to promote their IPTV. This is just for my personal experience of using IPTV for about 5 years.

Was considering evpad as there is a physical stall inside mall nearby. Good for trouble shooting support especially for non tech person. As I know, no other cost incurred once purchase the evpad set. Seem to cost more though. Thanks for sharing about sub titles. It is very important for me.

So...
Amlogic = a brand of tvbox
IPTV = the apps to download (such as MYIPTV4K)

Then... evpad = tvbox + apps installed, right?

amlogic is the type of CPU that using in the tvbox. There got many third party IPTV provider outside there. EVPAD is one of them, JoyTV also similar like evpad. Some are selling the app only and some of them are selling all-in-one including tvbox such like evpad, svicloud and longtv.

I have using myiptv4k and mypad4k for many years. Last time I'm using evpad 2s but I dislike it, so I install myiptv into evpad. Later that, they got offer huat88tv for chinese users so I switch to huat88tv. After that, they shutdown huat88tv then just left myiptv. After that my evpad 2s was spoilt, I don't have any tvbox during that time. Later that, they open another new line to offer mypadtv. Mypadtv can support android tablets, android phones, iPad, iPhone and Windows PC. Later that, I was switched to mypadtv to watch with google chrome. The provider later then upgrade their channels to HD to become mypadtv4k and myiptv4k for tvbox version. After a year of using the mypad4k, some of their channels cannot be loaded. So I did complaint to them. After few months, finally they shutdown their mypad4k to make concentrate into only one myiptv4k. I have no choice later, to watch with android emulator in my PC because my subscriptions for mypad4k still not ended yet. The provider was stopped to support web browser and updated their android mypad4k app to v1.50 to link with the sources from myiptv4k. The provider is now just concentrating in one myiptv4k, so later I was bought a new tvbox. I was requested the seller help me to convert my subscriptions from mypad4k to myiptv4k.

So now, I am watching myiptv4k everyday. No lagging or delaying. All of the channels especially axtro channels are running smooth. I think I've been using myiptv for 5 years already. Since last time before I buy Evpad 2s, I'm watching myiptv with the streamyx hypptv tvbox. Later that I was bought a evpad 2s, my hypptv tvbox was gave to my aunty. I've been watching with myiptv earlier than evpad before and was compared to many third party IPTV before. That's why in the end, I still prefer to myiptv4k.

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.

There got many tvbox outside there but just depends on how fast of your home internet. For me, my home got 500mbps that's why I only pick the tvbox with gigabit LAN. I was bought a cheap X99 Max Plus, the only cons for this tvbox is overheating but not a big deal. So I just put one 12cm fan under the device to cool down the temperature.

Other tvbox you may try to look for H96 Max X3, X96 Max+, HK1 box and others tvbox that within these specs.

I choose X99 Max+ 4GB RAM/64GB storage and the price is RM179. Another H96 Max X3 seems like a better choice too.

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.

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

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

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

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.

Even though the TX6S has Android 10 bs Android 9 on the TX3.... I would still go with the TX3 because it has the superior and more flash friendly AMLogic S905X3. The TX6S uses an AllWinner H616, a lesser performer. When getting, if you plan to game on it? Get the 4GB RAM versions, although they are “just” DDR3 vs DDR4 used in most newer boxes now. Only get the 2GB versions if you only plan to use it as a media streamer or player. Storage-wise? I would recommend minimum 32GB just to be sure you’ve got some space to play around and can still stream large media files using the onboard eMMC and not resort to write/reading from the slower USB port.

Hope this helps your decision.

Yeah, primary reason to get either is definitely due for 100% confirmed Google Certified devices. You don’t ever have to worry about such. Performance-wise, it’s so-so la.. but more than plenty for the simple needs user who wants a Google certified device.

Hmm, without opening the box huh... Well, the surest way is to simply stick with well-known brands with reputation to lose. Brands such as Minix, HiMedia, Beelink, Zidoo, Xiaomi, Nvidia, MeCool, Tanix, Roku, Amazon, TiVo, Wetek etc....Just to name a few...With so many players in the market.. I know for certain that you won't get cheated... at least not from these mentioned.. There should be a few more, but these are the ones i can recall off the top of my head. sweat.gif

Yep, opening the box and check what RAM chips are used on the board.

Looking for a cheap box(less than RM180) to replace my old Himedia. I guess I should go with Tanix in this price segment. Thanks for the advice!

Which is better and more reliable... Tx3 or H96 max X3..

Spec wise from what i know is the same. (Looking at 4gb Ram and 32gb storage).
Except the Ethernet port. H96 max x3 is gigabit. (1000 compare to Tx3 100)

But rarely seen anyone comment bout the H96 max X3. So, that why the question which better and reliable..

which one better.... bmw or mercedes better? proton or perodua better?!

more to do with what u want to do with it.

dun be carried away by the specs... bigger memory is good generally but not always necessary.

gigabit port is better than 100mbps but do u need it, can yr network support it?

lastly, watch out for overheating... google tx6 about this.

I use NordVPN but when connected to US server my Netflix won’t sign in. The VPN works on my Ipad/Iphone but not Android box. Not sure why, but its a really old box, Mini M8S. Been in service for few years and now its having infinity rebooting and can’t log in. That’s why I was considering Tanix, TX3 as a replacement. No money to get Nvidia and all thise high end brands. 😭

Oh you are welcome....About Beelink versus Tanix devices.. To be fair, I can't categorically state that Beelink is miles better than Tanix, because I'm yet to personally play with either Tanix boxes. However, specs and features-wise? I can say that Beelink wins. You can triple boot OSes (Android, EmuELEC, CoreELEC) and there are a few verified custom ROMs for em. Kodi (my favorite app) also runs great on em. Using CoreELEC, you can have Netflix @1080p and DD audio on most Beelink boxes. Tanix? probably still the usual 540p max (i stand corrected if other owners can confirm otherwise). The major pro for Tanix devices at this time is that Asterruk Go app (with some hackery cuz rooted, etc) works on some of their boxes. Problem is, they'll only work until something is changed on Asterruk's end that makes them incompatible. So might not even work in a few days or weeks. Minix boxes used to be king and my default recommendation (for years) to those whose criteria is to run the Asterruk Go app. The app would be updated over and over again and yet Minix boxes would just update and keep playing smoothly. But then few months back.. Stuff got changed and they began experiencing problems.

Edit: Make that quad-booting capable. Manjaro Linux can now be used on Beelink boxes like the GT-King Pro and the GS-King X. It's currently in Alpha stage though. but for tinkerers like myself. This is excellent news. Means that with a little more time, I can turn the Beelink GS-King X into a full-fledged Linux powered NAS device. For now, that means ditching Android for good, cuz Manjaro needs to run off the on-board eMMc storage.. Eagerly awaiting USB/SD card bootable support. thumbup.gif

I use NordVPN but when connected to US server my Netflix won’t sign in. The VPN works on my Ipad/Iphone but not Android box. Not sure why, but its a really old box, Mini M8S. Been in service for few years and now its having infinity rebooting and can’t log in. That’s why I was considering Tanix, TX3 as a replacement. No money to get Nvidia and all thise high end brands. 😭

Try ExpressVPN bro.. I did and yep it works... Had to change system time and location stuff to match.. But yeah, it works.. Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, Prime, etc.. Can view and watch all geo-locked stuff.. My next box review video will drop soon and you can see proof there. nod.gif

Oh you are welcome....About Beelink versus Tanix devices.. To be fair, I can't categorically state that Beelink is miles better than Tanix, because I'm yet to personally play with either Tanix boxes. However, specs and features-wise? I can say that Beelink wins. You can triple boot OSes (Android, EmuELEC, CoreELEC) and there are a few verified custom ROMs for em. Kodi (my favorite app) also runs great on em. Using CoreELEC, you can have Netflix @1080p and DD audio on most Beelink boxes. Tanix? probably still the usual 540p max (i stand corrected if other owners can confirm otherwise). The major pro for Tanix devices at this time is that Asterruk Go app (with some hackery cuz rooted, etc) works on some of their boxes. Problem is, they'll only work until something is changed on Asterruk's end that makes them incompatible. So might not even work in a few days or weeks. Minix boxes used to be king and my default recommendation (for years) to those who's criteria is to run the Asterruk Go app. The app would be updated over and over again and yet Minix boxes would just update and keep playing smoothly. But then fee months back.. Stuff got changed and they began experiencing problems.

Edit: Make that quad-booting capable. Manjaro Linux can now be used on Beelink boxes like the GT-King Pro and the GS-King X. It's currently in Alpha stage though. but for tinkerers like myself. This is excellent news. Means that with a little more time, I can turn the Beelink GS-King X into a full-fledged Linux powered NAS device. For now, that means ditching Android for good, cuz Manjaro needs to run off the on-board eMMc storage.. Eagerly awaiting USB/SD card bootable support.  thumbup.gif

Thanks for the great enlightenment bro. You sure are master of boxes!

Have yet to try Express VPN, but I have the same error at times using Nord. Asking me to change time and location. For time okay, I can comprehend but how do you change location? Blur...

Try this.. Uninstall the app, reboot and connect to ExpressVPN. Disable Location in settings (Won't work for Hulu or ESPN though...this will request access).. Mine's toggled on and okay je for Netflix. Then reinstall Netflix and log back in. Should be good now.

Gee, good for you.. What device again? See around the 13:50 timestamp for ESPN, and 14:30 for Hulu.. It gets asked on the Beelink GS-King X. Prolly because it's running the mobile app version?? Cuz on your Mecool KM1 Deluxe running the ESPN ATV OS version. It doesn't request for it.. Just logon via PC, connect and boom...All access.. Video editing is a pain.. Hopefully I'll be done by Thursday night at the latest.. Upload full review then. sweat.gif

I have tried this, but same result. I guess it has got to do with my old box. Stream installed HBO MAX on my TM Unifi Plus box and with VPN everything works fine. Perhaps I'll just have to wait for my TX3 to arrive and install there.

Thanks anyway bro for the advice!

I will wait patiently for my X3 to reach me and try again bro. My Netflix on my Mini M8S is version/build 4.16, that's the highest it can go/support for the device. Maybe, somehow affecting all these. bruce.gif

I've just stream installed HBO MAX on my TM Unifi Plus Box, and using Nord I can watch HD movies and Series. Truly life changing. rclxms.gif rclxms.gif
All these while, I was watching perhaps 720p or lower (due to Netflix version limitation, I guess) even I am subscribing to Full HD package. Any advice on how to watch Full HD on Netflix? (For my incoming TX3). Is there any Netflix HD version of app that I would need to install?

I tried using HULU just now, but it requested for my location, so that was such a waste. Any idea how to bypass this? cool2.gif

Netflix only allow certified devices to be able to stream full HD and above due to DRM agreement with some of the content providers. And majority of Chinese android boxes are not in the certified list.

Some that are running Android TV like the Mi Box and Mi Stick is certified and can run Netflix at Full HD

I can concur the above apk gets up to 1080p as I recalled for KM9 KM3 with DRM L1 ATV boxes but needs to pair with wireless mouse 😆

Hey all..Fresh off the oven. It's my review of the Google Certified Mecool KM1 Deluxe running Android TV OS...version 10 and all legit.. It's not as powerful as the S922X-H SoC equipped Beelink GS-King X.. But I can say it's a better streamer if one can overlook the few nit-picky cons and grey area stuffs. I welcome comments here and or on the video.. Thanks to Scissorshand for lending me his unit for this review. notworthy.gif notworthy.gif Show some love y'all.. Enjoy!

Omg, you’re a life saver bro. Just notice this, sorry for the late reply. I manage to install the apk on the Plusbox, finally without any error!

It prompted me to update tho after installing, can I update or just ignore? (Chose to ignore now).

Thank you so much. It can’t work with the VPN tho but at least Netflix is alive on the Unifi plusbox. Thank you sir!

Correct, always choose the ignore option.. Thankfully and unlike some services, Netflix doesn't yet force everyone to use the latest app version to view content.

HyppTV, i think you can buy a cheap empty tvbox from shopee or lazada then look for MYIPTV4K to subscribe RM150/half year.
Online stream, personally I do not recommend Kodi. I prefer to use "xfplay" if you are Chinese user because you can visit ixftv.com with this app to play any China, HK, Korean, Japan, US dramas and movies with Chinese subtitles. xfplay can be downloaded from Google play store or http://www.xfplay.com

I personally recommend you to buy an open source tvbox, just stop believe that kind of evpad, svicloud, longtv etc.
Just go for the amlogic S905X3 tvbox, make sure there have 4GB ram, gigabit LAN port, support 5GHz wifi and support 4K 60hz with HDR.
The price was just around RM150~RM200 only. I do not recommend evpad, better just go subscribe MYIPTV4K and pay for RM150 every half year. All their channels are smooth and high definition. Also comes with subtitles.

Want Netflix? Go with the Xiaomi Mi Box S...
Want AOTG with a bit more flexibility? Look into the Tanix devices.

I haven't tried SyberTV myself... But I reckon it'll fare better on a Tanix device than the Mi Box S.. I'm guessing regular Android OS would handle nicer.

I concur ..Tested SyberTV and sideloaded it on my Shield and Beelink GT King..it will work on ATV but controls are finicky and limited. Normal android box works best

Do get the branded one , I bought Minix U9H which is a higher than average android box. Can't even use netflix and it had the typical android lag.

Bought the Apple TV4k , big difference in stability, smoothness and app support.

Only get those android box if you're planning on using it on jack sparrow channel.

*Can't even use Netflix on it.. Can but you will be limited by the max res 540p.. Either that or you find some hacked apk to allow up to 1080p or more.. This is basic knowledge for all non-Netflix-certified devices. I always advise people who seek the best Netflix experience, to begin with their TVs. The built-in Netflix app on decent TVs works pretty well.

*Typical android lag.. I beg to disagree. Minix prides itself in shipping as close to vanilla Android as possible. Some custom ROM chefs actually "borrow" or convert their firmware to run on other non-Minix devices. Yes, they are that good. Perhaps you bought a Neo U9-h from some dunno seller who pre-installed crap apps and services which bogged down your system.. Well, that or user problem (we all learning).

*Bought Apple TV 4K and happy.. yeah sure, that is expected and I'm happy for you... Ultimately, you got what you wanted. There are limitations to using the Apple TV 4K box. Limitations that don't exist in the Android ecosystem. Perhaps you should compare an Apple TV 4K with the latest or heck older-gen Nvidia Shield TV Box (runs proper Android TV OS). I'm sure you'll also notice big differences in stability, smoothness, and app support...not only from the Minix Neo U9-H, but also when compared with the Apple TV 4K.

*Nope...Just like smartphones or computers. Android boxes have "levels". Exhibit A below.... The Beelink GT-King Pro & GS-King X I reviewed are even faster, although not Google certified. I installed plenty choice legit apps on both boxes and even dual-booted OS on the Beelink (which can run 5 different Operating Systems).. You can verify the absence of any "typical android lag". Trust me, a good box done right will serve you well.
