A great opportunity for a very powerful box in small-size factor which is now on sale only for $56.99 / €49.74 / £44.03 by using the discount coupon GBM8SDDR4 and with free world-wide shipping included! We are talking about the MINI M8S PRO, powered by the Octa-core S912 64bit CPU by Amlogic, an ARM Mali-T820MP3, 3 GB of DDR4 RAM and 32GB of internal storage. And yes, you read correctly, it comes with DDR4 memory so it promises faster access times, meaning even faster performance!

The exterior of the device is one of the most loved designs in the TV Box world. Plain dark grey / black plastic box it is very similar to the Beelink Mini but with an upgraded feel. There is no power button on the device for a minimal design choice, the device is powered on from the remote or as soon as you plug it in for the first time. The connectivity of the Mini M8S PRO is not the usual “Mini”. Comes with 2 X USB 2.0, an HDMI 2.0, an optical SPDIF output, 1 X Fast Ethernet and 1 X SD Card Slot and the DC in. The little beast also comes with Dual Band WiFi 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz for maximum speeds even when wireless and of course with internal antenna. The Bluetooth version is v 4.0.

Nice surprise has also been the default launcher. Not bad at all and very easy to use. The Mini M8S PRO is driven by Android version 7.1 Nougat which also guarantees that is KODI 17 / KODI 18 compatible so if you are looking for a future proof device, with this one you are also covered. The already pre-installed Google Play Store gives you access to all the latest applications and games on Android and if you love gaming, make sure to get a good gamepad so you can enjoy it fully.

The MINI M8S PRO tends to get hot sometimes but without any real-life issues. I didn’t notice any hiccups or reboots. Overall with the discounted price it is a very good solution for someone who wants an excellent KODI 17.6 device and maybe do also some causal gaming every now and then. The 32GB are more than enough for gaming and remember you can always use the SD Card as well. With the coupon GBM8SDDR4 you can get it for just $56.99 / €49.74 / £44.03. More info and in order to buy: https://www.gearbest.com/211766804,211766805,211766806-_gear/?lkid=13138582

Amazing value for money with the brand-new X96 Mini TV Box for just $29.99 / €25.63 / £22.57 as long as you use the discount coupon Xmas387 when added the device to your cart! It is an Android 7.1.2 TV Box (Android Nougat which is the latest OS by Google) and comes also with a Quad-core 2.0GHz Amlogic S905W CPU, a Penta-core Mali-450MP GPU, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Pretty impressive for such a low price, it really is the most cost-effective chipset in the market right now!

The device comes is a small factor casing. The X96 mini weighs only 150gr and in just 8.20 x 8.20 x 1.70 cm / 3.23 x 3.23 x 0.67 inches! You can easily mount it on the wall and use the external IR receiver for a better signal for your remote control. On the front panel, there is just a power LED, red means powered off and blue when working.

On the back panel we find the DC in 5V, the LAN / Ethernet port, an HDMI 2.0 output for real 4K playback at 60 frames per second, an AV output in case you use a projector or older TV and the IR port for the external IR receiver. On the left side we also find 2 X USB 2.0 and 1 SD Card Slot for up to 64GB more storage, which on Android 7 you can easily use as internal storage as well.

Performance on KODI is excellent, even at the highest resolution of 4K 10bit HDR the playback is flawless. It fully supports the latest version of KODI 17.6 so you will get the latest features of your favorite media player. With the pre-installed version of Google Playstore you can download all the latest apps and games.

The only downside, in my opinion, is the WiFi module which isn’t Dual Band. It only supports 2.4G but it is working very fast to be absolutely fair and not everyone has yet a Dual Band modem.

Overall, with the most cost-effective chipset, it is definitely one of the best value for money Android TV Boxes in the market right now. For more and in order to get one for $29.99 / €25.63 / £22.57 (discount coupon Xmas387visit: https://www.gearbest.com/tv-box/pp_715051.html?wid=21&lkid=11638882

Great opportunity in order to spend less money for more value and a future-proof device as well! The Tanix TX3 Mini is a perfect Android 7.1 TV Box with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage for just $31.99 / €27.20 / £24.08. So what’s the catch?

There is no catch, it is a based on the Amlogic S905W 64bit CPU which is powerful as the S905X with the sole difference that is locked at a maximum of 4K at 30 fps (instead of the 60 fps) resolution. So if you are not really in 4K, which let’s be honest most people aren’t yet, this is perfect for you!

So to sum it up, the Tanix TX3 Mini is powered by Android 7.1 Nougat, the latest version by Google, has 2GB of RAM, has 16GB of internal storage,  802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, 10/100M Ethernet, 2x USB 2.0 host ports, Micro SD Card Slot, HDMI 2.0, AV output and SPDIF optical output. Pretty good considering the very competitive price. My hunch says it will be the best box for box sellers!

KODI 17.6 runs perfectly, apart of course for the 4K 60fps video files. For everything else has an impressive, flawless playback. Google Playstore is already pre-installed and of course on Android 7.1 if you use a SD Card you can set it up as an internal memory, that means more local storage!

Excellent product considering the price and now by using the discount coupon GBTX3M you can get it for a price low, just $31.99 / €27.08 / £24.58 and free world-wide shipping included: https://www.gearbest.com/tv-box/pp_698084.html?lkid=12360784

This is my video review of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3, the 8″ tablet from Xiaomi running on MIUI 8 on top of Android 7 Marshmallow. In brief there is a newer version of MIUI v9 that should be released as well.

The Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 is powered by a Mediatek MTK8176 Hexa-Core 2.1GHz ( 2 x 2.1GHz Cortex A72 and 4 x 1.7GHz Cortex A53 ), 4GB of RAM,
64GB of fast internal storage, Dual Band WiFi b/g/n/ac and USB Type C. The 8 inch display is QXGA meaning 2048 x 1536.

The front camera is 5MP and the rear camera 13MP. On the top we find also the audio jack,thankfully. On the bottom and on the back there are two stereo speakers which are actually pretty good. I only wish that XIAOMI could have placed them on the front for better experience.

The Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 is a flagship tablet with top performance for a low price, which make it very appealing since it has a fantastic value / price!

You can buy the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 from: https://goo.gl/nG6Ulk and as always with free world-wide shipping included! Read more
