The big success of the Amazon Fire TV Stick is mostly because of the small, compact size. Alfawise has also released a similar to the Fire TV Stick device but it comes with the most powerful Amlogic CPU, the Octa-core S912 64bit. It is the H96 PRO TV Dongle and it sales for just $41.99 / €34.82 / £30.82 on a limited flash sale. Small in size but great in performance!
The H96 PRO TV Dongle comes with a gold platted HDMI and a black glossy case. Unlike the Fire TV Stick by Amazon we also find more connectivity ports: Sd Card for expansion of the internal memory storage, 2 X USB ports, an LED indicator that changes color depending on the operation of the device, and a micro USB for powering the device! The total weight if the device is less than 200g. Unlike the promising for connecting it to any USB port to power it up, that is not the case. While it will work on a TV, on a projector the current may not be enough to power the device as it requires a 5V port to make this powerful stick to work.
The specs, other that the amazing Octa-core S912 CPU, are an ARM Mali T820-Mp3 HPU, 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. Disappointing the fact that they did not include the ac module and as such the device supports b/g/n WiFi. Nevertheless the WiFi is fast enough and has a great performance even on 4K streaming content. But I would love to see that little too much in such a small device as well. Lastly but not leastly, also supports Bluetooth 4.1 + EDR.
Powered by Android 7.1.1 Nougat the possibilities of the H96 PRO TV Dongle are endless. With the pre-installed Google Playstore you can install any application or game you want, even the latest releases and also the latest version of KODI 17.6 and KODI 18 that runs in a flawless way. 4K reproduction of any video is also great, thanks to the already qualified CPU and GPU that can play up to 4K video files in 60 frames per second. I was genuinely very impressed by the performance!
Overall, if you are looking for a small sized device, you feel attracted by the Fire TV Stick but you need something more powerful, without the restrictions of the Amazon Eco-system, getting the H96 PRO TV Dongle is totally worth it. Get it on a flash sale (limited up to 14 devices per order) for a super-low price, just $41.99 / €34.82 / £30.82 and with free world-wide shipping at: https://www.gearbest.com/tv-stick-dongle/pp_666669.html?wid=21&lkid=12991564
