There seems to be a lot of misinformation or misunderstanding about this particular Android box - so my focus is helping you understand what exactly this is all about. I have own, used, and evaluated upwards of a dozen different Android boxes, and this is the most economically priced of the lot, and the technical specifications are basic compared to what you can get in the 60$-100$... but the Android OS and Interface is the *EXACT SAME* you will find on *ANY* other Android box by any other brand, all across the price spectrum, even the 105$ MXQ I show in my video.
I go through three different boxes, this one, a MXV that I use the most often (and actually has lesser resolution than this), and that MXQ one. I show the OS specifications, Internal Storage Layout, and the Kodi video resolution for all three... and you will see they are basically *THE SAME* - the money difference being the actual hardware. The MXQ has better FPS than...
First impressions were generally positive with build quality and home screen responsiveness, but it went sour soon after. I couldn't get Youtube and Netflix working. There are apps that the manufacturer provides that would seem cool if it actually worked. Kodi seems to work okay, but I didn't delve too deep.
*Notice: I bought this item with my own money, so it's actually an honest review. I'm sure I'm not the only one tired of these "free item for an honest reviews". I'm starting to view "Top Reviewers" in a negative light.
I do not have the unit that comes with the game pad though so I wasnt able to try out the "eagle" gaming section or the eagle game controller. I do have a few gaming controllers so I may update this review in the future when I try it out for some gaming features, however it does seem underpowered from normal use (feels more like dual core vs quad core) to be able to handle some higher end more graphic intensive games but it may me more due to the small amount of RAM this unit has vs your average mid to high end flagship smartphone/tablet.
This review is more geared towards very low end graphic gaming and mostly watching videos and movies from the web and or from the expandable storage (microSD slot or usb). So far that has worked as expected and I use BSPlayer to play my own videos and it works great for that so for that reason Im overall satisfied with the unit, but those that have more needs (gaming and certain specific apps YMMV) as I did see in the google play...
