One of the best performing TV Box right now which did really impress me is the R99 TV Box. And now you can still get it on a coupon sale for the lower price online: $116.99 / €97.00 / £85.87 and free world-wide shipping by using the coupon DimR99! You can also watch my video review by clicking here.

Starting with the aesthetics of the device, the R99 comes with an excellent aluminum case which gives two advantages: a luxury, beautiful device that will get a lot of attention and most imprortantly, an always cool device even under high stress. Before getting into the specs of the device we should also note that comes with an excellent WiFi remote. No more struggle to get the remote in a perfect straight line with the device to control it, the included USB dongle will take care of the connection between the two devices perfectly, even for the power function.

Powered by a RK3399 Chip 64bit Dual ARM Cortex-A72 Big-core + Quad ARM Cortex-A53 Small-core CPU (Hexacore) it is a benchmark monster. The it is completed by a  Mali-T860 GPU, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. On the left side of the device there is a port which works as the WiFi antenna, the on board Dual Band WiFi b/g/n/ac is one of the best I have ever come upon in speed and strength signal.

On the right side of the R99 TV Box we find also a part of the curved LED indicator, a micro SD Card slot, a type-C USB 3.1, a USB 2.0 and a USB 3.0. Moving to the back of the device we find a LAN / Ethernet 1GB port, an optical SPDIF output, HDMI 2.0 for real 4K at 60fps resolution and the DC 5V input.

Powered by Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 for now, comes pre-installed with the Google Playstore from where you can install any application you want, including the latest version of KODI 18 or the stable version 17.6. Both perform brilliantly, no lags or issues of any kind, even on 4K. And as a personal note, my personal preference is that the Rockchip CPU’s have better colors when decoding a video file compared to the Amlogic CPU’s. I would only recommend you uninstall the KODI fork version that comes already with the device and install KODI from Google Playstore instead for better performance.

Speaking of performance, the device confirms the monstrous benchmark results. Multi-tasking and even gaming is a pleasure with the R99 TV Box. It is one of the few devices which will let you enjoy games on high profiles with great fps. Everything is snappy, fast and changing between opened apps like from a game to a media player is almost instant.

Now with the exclusive coupon DimiR99 you can get this amazing device for the lower price online, just $116.99 / €97.00 / £85.87 and free world-wide shipping from: https://www.gearbest.com/209317401,209317402,209317403-_gear/?lkid=13085958

Another great box from Beelink and with very beautiful design, is on a flash sale over at Gearbest. The Beelink A1 Android 7.1 TV Box is a very promising device and right now is selling for a super-low price, just $59.99 / €51.53 / £45.84 and as always with free world-wide shipping! The small in size tv box is powered by a Rockchip RK3328 Quad-core 64bit CPU, an ARM Mali-450MP2 GPU, 4GB of DDR3 RAM and 16GB of internal storage! The on-board WiFi is Dual Band for better performance and supports b/g/n/ac networks.

Beelink A1 4GB TV BOX

Connectivity is also a high game for the Beelink A1. Comes with 1 USB 3.0 that supports up to 4TB external drives, 1 USB 2.0, an Ethernet capable of 1000M, AV port and a micro SD slot. The HDMI connection is version 2.0 so it supports real 4K performance at 60 fps. And let’s not forget the Bluetooth version 4.0 which is always very useful. Despite the reduced dimensions of this pretty box, the performance is not bad at all. The 4GB contribute a lot in multitasking so it is easy to pass from an app to another without the frequent lags we notice in most devices. The Rockchip CPU is powerful enough and with the contribution of the GPU, has a phenomenal performance when it comes in video playback. 4K movies in KODI are amazing and with smooth animation. Speaking of KODI, of course the device supports the latest version KODI 17.5 and all the needed codecs.

Beelink A1 TV Box

Also streaming is super-fast, thanks to the fast Dual Band WiFi and the Gigabit Ethernet port. Which ever way you go, cable or wireless the connection is always very fast. Of course for better results, always prefer the LAN port wherever that is possible.

The design of the device, although small is also very “petit”. White the top and the sides, with a pretty and intense orange on the bottom. In the front there is a subtle LED display with the time and major commands. The floating of the air is very good and no overheating was noticed to a critical point that could influence the performance. Overall, at this price point and especially with the flash sale in action right now, this is a very good product that you will also be proud to have besides your TV.

The latest mid-range smartphone by Xiaomi, branded A1 or Android One by Google gives you more expected for the price! And with the incredible offer for just $205.98 / €176.95 / £157.09 (49% off) and free world-wide shipping included it is an offer you simply can’t miss! Comes in a unibody metal design and feels solid in hand. It feels very comfortable and gives you a sort of control over it when using with two hands. The back side of the device is very similar to the OnePlus 5 but just a bit beefed up. The phone is just 7.3mm thick and weighs 165 grams which is also great.

It sports a 5.5-inch (1920 x 1080 pixels) Full HD 2.5D curved glass LTPS display along with Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The display is bright enough, decent color reproduction and good viewing angles. The phone has the usual set of proximity and ambient light sensor next to the 5-megapixel front camera and also features a notification LED. The Xiaomi A1 also has capacitive touch buttons below the display that are backlit and offer haptic feedback when pressed. The phone comes with Android OS v7.1.2 Nougat but Android Oreo is coming soon!

The Xiaomi A1 offers a hybrid dual sim card tray, an audio jack (yes!) and a type-C port for the charging of the 3080mAh built-in battery. The 4G connectivity supports VoLTE and the other connectivity features include WiFi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz + 5GHz), Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS. It also has USB OTG (on-the-go) support but lacks NFC. On the back, we find a 12MP dual rear camera setup, dual-tone led flash, and the fingerprint sensor just beneath it. The dual rear cameras are one with a wide-angle lens and the other with a telephoto lens offering portrait mode, background blur, 2x optical zoom and more. On the front, it houses an excellent 5MP selfie shooter.

Powered by an Octa-Core Snapdragon 625 processor, clocked at 2GHz along with a 650MHz Adreno 506 GPU has a great performance. It is also complemented by 4GB RAM. The overall performance is flawlessly smooth and fast without any stutter, lag or hang. Thanks to the 4GB RAM, the multi-tasking is more fluid than ever. Using multitasking apps or playing most games (even those more demanding) you will not notice any frame drop or slowdowns.

The Scishion V99 Hero TV Box is a stylish Android TV Box that offers great hardware and functions for the most affordable price. Now with a special discount coupon you can get it for an even lower price. By using the coupon GBSV99H you can get it for $62.99 / €55.50 / £49.14 and as always with free world-wide shipping included!

With glossy sides and matte the middle part of the plastics, the Sischion V99 distinguish from most Android TV Boxes. All the connection ports are situated in the back so it gives a zen impression with minimalistic design. Very lightweight as well, just 138gr is somehow similar to the Xiaomi Mi TV Box.

 

The Scishion V99 Hero TV Box is powered by a Rockchip RK3368 Octa-core 64 bit processor and a Power VR G6110 GPU is powerful enough for gaming and also as a media center. It supports H.265 HEVC and VP9 decoding so it runs 4K movies quite smoothly. Comes with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage which is also very impressive considering the price. Also to note that the built-in WiFi is Dual Band 2.4G and 5G and supports the Bluetooth version 4.0, very impressive as well!

In terms of benchmarks the Scishion V99 Hero is not the fastest device out there. But on the same time it is also faster than most devices on the market and especially for that price range is clearly one of the fastest! The only negative in my opinion is the Android version out of the box, comes with Android Lollipop 5.1. Of course even with Android 5.1 you can still install the latest version of KODI Krypton 17.3 with no issues at all, but I hope that Scishion comes soon with a firmware update so it would make it an unbeatable device for the price tag.

You can get it for the lowest price online by using the coupon GBSV99H just $62.99 / €55.50 / £49.14 and as always with free world-wide shipping included. For more info and in order to buy it visit the link: http://www.gearbest.com/tv-box-mini-pc/pp_621882.html?lkid=10968393
