I know what your thinking? Why should I go out and spend XXX amount of dollars on an Android Tv Box, when I don’t know anything about them. I get that, because I was there too, and really didnt know a whole about them neither, and I tried searching on the net. But to my surprise there was not a whole lot of information on what to look for when buying a poor or good android tv box.
What should I look for when buying an Android Box?
Some of the main things you should look for when buying an Android box is the reviews. That’s the first step that I take when looking at a specific model. If I see some other user related reviews that are good, then I move on.
Next I’ll check these main components of the Android Tv Box. What you are looking for his The GPU Specifications, the CPU Specs, and lastly how much ram it has. For 2018 I’ll give you a basic guideline. There should be at least an ARM Mali-T820MP3 GPU, and minimum of an Octo Core Processor. When it comes to Ram, I preferably would like to see minimum 3 Gigs Ram. But you can get away with 2 Gigs. I still have Android Boxes now that run with 2 and they run great. Another thing to keep in mind is to make sure it has the lastest Android Operating Firmware installed. As of now its the Nougat 7.
Does Brand Name really matter?
When it comes to buying Android Boxes, brand name doesn’t really matter. Now that doesn’t mean to out and find the cheapest AfterMarket Android Box in Asia. What it does mean is you don’t need to pay specific attention to it. For example if you purchase the H96 Android box, its going to have all the same components in it has another Android Box. You will notice when you look at the specs that GPU’s, CPU’s are the exact same. The only that might change is the operating system. So the hardware stays the same a lot in many Android Boxes. However you make sure it has the latest Android Operating firmware. If not you may not be able to get future upgrades, like when the new addition of Kodi comes out.
Where does that leave you?
That leaves you with a pretty good idea of what to look for. When looking at specs you don’t understand, Google is your best friend. You can also use great review websites like this one, http://bestandroidtvbox.com. There is real life user reviews on there, that rate each android box. It also comes with full tutorials for when you are ready to upgrade your Android Box.
Anyway, just use the above advice when shopping around, and be sure to look at them specs. The specs will save you in the end.
