Best Android Boxes - No Really These Are the Best for 2020

Post by Admin » Wed May 13, 2020 5:59 pm

How many times do we stumble across articles on the Internet claiming these are the best Android Boxes?

Quite often actually, many articles are simply dated from a while ago and republished as new.

Nothing beats a Nvidia SHIELD box for Android if you can afford it.

For members on a beer budget, one of our members Jay, AKA Fishbone who is quite the Android Aficionado has come up with a list of his own best Android boxes he shared recently on our Team Android TV Facebook group.

So if you are looking for a new Android box to rock Kodi that won't break the bank. Or rock some of the other many great apps available from unknown sources, you may want to take a few notes. Or just save a link to this post for future reference.

And the only other things needed is an HDMI cable, Game Controller and an upgraded remote like these:

...

The top processor for price and performance is the Amlogic S905X3. I went through many box reviews and the best are:

1. A95X F3 Air

Image
2. X99 MAX+

Image
3. X96Air

Image
4. HK1

Image
5. MECOOL KM1

6. Tanix TX6S


The ones typically reviewed are 4gb/32gb/64gb models. There are many others using the Amlogic S905X3 but find a full review on how the hardware and software work together before you buy.

The S905X3 is clocked at 2.0ghz, on the A95X F3 Air they have it clocked at 1.7ghz the lower clock rate has out performed those at 2.0ghz at 4k playback and Android gaming ........


Here are 2 reviews of the A95X F3 Air that shows what an under $50 box can do:





There are TV Boxes priced over $100 and up that ARE NO better at streaming or Android gaming than these priced under $50. The only reason to spend over $100+ on a streaming box is if you wanted to do AAA GeForce gaming.

My 3yr old Mecool M8S W Android 7.1 with the original Amlogic S905 and 2gb/16gb is still working good and it plays YouTube 4k with no issues, and I have gotten my $32 worth out of it. My only issue is that navigation is slow with all the apps I have installed.

Generally the boxes I have mentioned are under $40 from China and under $60 from the U.S.


Note: There are boxes using the new Amlogic S922X-J. But they run $150. Again, if you're just streaming and playing play store games $150 is overkill for an Android box."

7. Finally, if you want an Android box with a built-in DVR check out the Magicsee N5 Plus - supports up to a 4tb HDD with Android 9.0.
