It need 2 AAA baterries. Buttons are rubberised and looks nice, working good. Remote is equipped with a learning system so you can pair it with your television and use the same remote for both devices at once.

There isn’t set up process on power on, so you must go to setting and set wireless connection and adjust screen size.


OTA update (over-the-air update) is enabled so you don’t need to worry about updating your device.

There is several preinstalled applications worth to mansion. Miracast and AirPin working good. TV CENTER is actually KODI fork with popular addons.

My advice is to install fresh Kodi from Play Store and set addons manually.

TV Box is rooted so you can install everything you want. There is App Installer or navigate to apk file with file explorer.

Kodi is working good, without interruption.

I tested 4K 60fps video with video player and it played perfect smooth.

Antutu benchmarks gives overall score 38073 which is very good for such small device.

At the end of this review, must say very good TV Box for that amount of money.
This is a small device, need cooling so don’t put it on other device.
