I get asked a lot, which is the best “budget” or under $50 Android Box for KODI. The answer is the Mini M8S II 16Gb version! It comes with Android 6 Marshmallow, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (note: there are smaller versions too: 1Gb of RAM and 8Gb or storage and 2Gb of RAM and 8Gb of storage). This bigger version sports an Amlogic 64bit S905X CPU with 4 cores maxing out 2.0Ghz per core, a 5 core Mali 450 GPU and 2.4Ghz WiFi b/g/n with an internal antenna. If you want to use it for KODI as an example, this Android TV Box is perfect.

The main advantage of the Mini M8S II 16Gb version is it’s performance for the value. Considering the price, is an amazing deal. Not by any means top of the line but can do what it promises and it can do it very well. It can easily handle most of the apps and games of the pre-installed Google Play Store. And as I mentioned before, the performance on KODI is absolutely great! It is capable of flawless playback even on 4K HDR @ 60fps and fully supports all the latest codecs including HEVC!

The Mini M8S II 16Gb version is one of the smallest on the market and that’s where the name “Mini” comes from, under high stress it tends to be a little hot but nothing close to shutting it down or affect your experience. Black mate finish -almost grey dark- and no power button on the device. On the side there is a USB 2.0 and the memory card slot, on the back side an optical audio SPDIF, an Ethernet Gigabit port, the HDMI port, yet another USB 2.0 port and finally the DC-in socket.

So in conclusion, if you are looking for the best value for this price, the $46.99 / €42.89 / £38.33 are well spent and you can get it from:
