One of my absolute favorite Android TV BOX is the Sunvell T95M, which is also the best value your money can get! Now there is also available the newer version, the Sunvell T95X which for a just 2$ more comes with the Amlogic S905X CPU. The main differences between the S905X and the S905 CPU are that the X version is the newer one that supports Android Marshmallow v6, supports the newest codec VP9 on 4K and amazing enough it alsos support 4K HDR(!) playback. So if you want 4K with the newest and best features, aim for the Sunvell T95X model!T95X00

Other than the S905X 64bit Quadcore CPU, the rest of the features remain the same with the older brother:

2GB of RAM, Pentacore Mali450 GPU, 8Gb internal memory, 4K support at 60FPS, HDMI 2.0, 2 x USB 2.0, Ethernet and WiFi b/g/n 2.4Ghz. Also there is an AV output for older TVs or projectors, and an SD slot.

The T95X has also a different, more elegant box but without the LCD display that the T95M has.

This fantastic box with it’s incredible Value/Price ratio is now on SALE for just $35.99 /  €31.81 / £27.76 with Free world-wide shipping included! More on Gearbest: http://www.gearbest.com/tv-box-mini-pc/pp_415612.html?lkid=10007536

Which Android TV Box Should I Buy?

Which TV Box Should You Buy In 2021

A lot of people keep asking me which is the best TV Box or what TV Box should they buy. Well the answer to that question is not that easy because everyone has different needs and also different price range. So let’s try to put an order into this question.

This list is always updated when new, worth mentioning devices become available so make sure you visit it again in the future!

  • Amazon Fire TV Stick (Firestick)

Amazon Firestick New

US:https://amzn.to/32bL5aB UK:http://amzn.to/1UlJIzd

This is without doubt the most cheap device and also the slowest device but comes handy because of the size and easiness to use. When it comes to KODI it performs pretty decently but if you want to install the latest build, you may struggle. It comes with an excellent remote control, the closed ecosystem from Amazon which you can by-pass by sideloading apps (even though it may be a pain in the ass!). There is no keyboard so you may have to purchase one. Decent but nothing special, just the essential. My opinion, invest 10$ more and get something better or if you want to stick with Amazon, go for the 4K version which is a little more powerful and handles heat better.


  • Amazon Fire TV 4K

US:https://amzn.to/32bL5aB UK:http://amzn.to/1UlJR5P

The next solution from Amazon. Overall is a decent box with excellent build quality. Specs-wise we find a Quad Core CPU (a dual-core at 2.0Ghz & another dual-core CPU at 1.6Ghz), a PowerVR GX6250 GPU, 2Gb of RAM and Dual BAnd Wifi. The only downside is the 4K supported is “just” at 30 fps when the S905X and S912 CPU from Amlogic can deliver easily 4K at 60 fps (fps= frames per second). If you need this device for Amazon Prime content you will be very satisfied. But when it comes to KODI you may look elsewhere at this price and specs. Excellent remote control with voice control (Alexa).


  • Beelink GT1

Beelink GT1 Mini

INT:Gearbest.com/GT1 EU:GeekBuyiingEUROPE/GT1

Powered by an Amlogic S905X2, a Mali G-31 GPU, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, this Android TV Box features also Dual Band WiFi 2.4G and 5G, a Gigabit Ethernet port, USB 3.0 and HDMI 2.0a for real 4K at 60Hz. Pretty impressive for the price and also the specs on such a small device in 2019. It has some lacks, for example there is no Netflix HD/4K and the YouTube app has some issues which can be fixed though by using the Youtube app by Beelink in their App Market. The remote is very good and if you want a device just for KODI and streaming APK, you have a winner here. You can watch my Beelink GT1 Mini review here.


  • Mecool KM9 PRO

US:Amazon Link UK:Amazon Link INT: https://bit.ly/307ANdp

Also powered by an Amlogic S905X2, an ARM Mali G-31, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage this Android TV 9.0 Pie device offers a great overall performance! Snappy interface and multitask, it has a very fast Dual Band WiFi 2.4G and 5G, supports 4K HDR and it is certified by Google with Google Assistant working with the excellent remote control and Chromecast built-in. Also Youtube comes with the Android TV version and it supports the VP9 codec up to 4K / UHD. In my opinion lacks just in two things, it isn’t certified by Netflix so no Netflix HD / 4K unfortunately and the Ethernet port is 100M. For my review on the Mecool KM9 PRO click here.


  • Xiaomi MI BOX S

xiaomi mi box s best 2019

Fantastic Android TV despite the average specs has a brilliant performance and does exactly what it promises and more! Supports 4K HDR @ 60 FPS and has great audio quality as well. If you are looking for an Android TV device and spending for an NVIDIA Shield is simply too much, this is the best alternative! Now it also supports voice commands from the remote control and comes with the default Google TV launcher as any Android TV device. Powered by an Amlogic S905X and 2GB of RAM it only has 8GB of local storage but you can always use external hard drive. Lacks of an Ethernet port but the WiFi is Dual Band b/g/n/ac 3.Ghz and 5Ghz with great performance. Amazing value for money, highly recommended for anyone that wants to watch NETFLIX in 4K / Netflix HD.


  • Beelink GT KING

Beelink GT-King Android Tv 9 Box

INT:https://dimitrology.com/recommends/gtking/ EU:GeekBuying/GTKING

Call it also the Benchmark Monster, this Android 9 TV Box has an incredible performance with top specs! It is the only TV Box that fills the gap towards the NVIDIA Shield, comes with the flagship 64bit CPU by Amlogic S922X which is a Hexa-core CPU (6 cores). The GPU is an ARM Mali-G52 MP6 GPU which is great not only for media but also for gaming. Then he find 4GB of DDR4 RAM, 64GB of internal storage, Dual Band WiFi b/g/n/ac 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz,1000M Ethernet port, 2 X USB 3.0, 1 X USB 2.0, SD Card Slot and HDMI 2.1 for 4K UHD at 75Hz! With one word: powerhouse! The default launcher is it’s weakest point but that you can easily fix by downloading a different one from the already pre-installed Google Play Store! A great plus in my opinion also the excellent air remote control that also supports voice search. You can watch my review of the Beelink GT KING here.


  • Apple TV 4K (ATV 4K)

Apple tv 4k ATV4K

Call me paranoid but this amazing device when it comes to hardware is also the most expensive to maintain. You can watch almost anything but with a higher price than any other device. In order to install KODI you will need to pay or if you are a very advanced user you may install it for a little less since you still need to pay for a developer certificate. It is sad that such a powerful device with great specs and features isn’t that supported by apps and games. And yeah, that price in totally Apple style is a little too high for what it has to offer. If you want to install KODI on an Apple TV / Apple TV 4K watch this video tutorial with easy to follow steps. My personal recommendation, if you are not an Apple fan-boy and do not care about the Apple Eco-system, there is no reason to buy the device. Even YouTube in 4K is not supported. Nice hardware but lack of support.


  • Nvidia Shield TV

NEW NVIDIA SHIELD

US:http://amzn.to/2saK4OP UK:http://amzn.to/2kjlmLd CAN:http://amzn.to/2rMa9Dv

Without doubt the top of the category! Powered by the best CPU, the Tegra X1, the Shield TV is capable of flawless 4K HDR playback,  has 3gb of RAM, comes with the most powerful GPU with 256 cores and delivers some exclusive features like PC gaming, voice command, Netflix in 4K HDR, Youtube in 4K, Plex Media Server with hardware transcoding. Even if it uses Android and not a KODI-based OS, the performance in KODI is outstanding! You can install any build you want, the playback is outstanding, it comes with an excellent remote control (the best in the category) and there is a Pro version with 500gb! For gaming is simply the best, comes with a fantastic gamepad for experiencing the best games from Google Play Store and the NVIDIA GeForce Now even the most demanding!
