It is running on a flash sale for just $75.99 / €63.30 / £55.21 and if you live in some specific countries like the USA, UK, Canada, Australia and some Eastern European countries, you can also apply the coupon code GBMayNEW005 for an extra -$2 discount on the flash sale price! I just wish they made those discount coupons easier and more available for everybody but it is what it is… Speaking of the device itself, it is a great Android TV OS device with voice recognition running Google Voice so you can control it simply by talking to it.

Mecool M8S PRO L

The Mecool M8S PRO L is powered by Android 7.1, an Amlogic 64bit S912 Octa-core CPU, a ARM Mali-T820MP3 GPU, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage! Also supports Bluetooth version 4.1 and Dual Band WiFi b/g/n/ac for super-fast wireless connection! On the left side of the device we find 2 X USB 2.0, a Slot for micro SD Cards and on the back side a CVBS/L/R output, a Gigabit Ethernet port, HDMI 2.0 and the dc-in for the power.

Playback on the device is simply flawless, it plays every video format, even on KODI Krypton 17.6 and KODI Leia 18 up to 4K Ultra HD at 60fps with no issues at all. And having 3GB of RAM it is also very snappy in multitasking when you want to switch among the different apps that you have running on your device.

The 32GB of local storage on the Mecool M8S PRO L are also a great amount of space but if needed you can expand the local storage by using the SD Card slot, a USB flash drive or even an external hard drive. Android 7.1 handles this function with ease. And as any Android TV OS device you can remote control your device even with your smartphone.

Overall an amazing product and now also on an amazing price, for more and in order to get one visit the link: https://goo.gl/bC5Qov

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.

And with the incredible offer with the coupon A1xiaomi, just for $209.99€177.69 / £160.46 (free world-wide shipping included!) 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. T 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.
