Android TV Boxes have become quite the popular product recently as they allow you to turn your TV into a smart TV. This means that you can access any app available on Google Playstore on your TV such as Netflix, Facebook or any other app available in the android market place. An android TV box will work with any television as long as it has a HDMI input or else an AV input that can be found on older televisions. This means that instead of having to go and get a brand new smart TV which would prove to be quite expensive you can just get an android TV box instead and convert your existing TV for a fraction of the cost.
There are many android TV boxes on the market and it can prove to be a daunting process selecting one that is a quality box and also at a fair price. Often people wonder what is the difference between the various boxes. Well all of the boxes basically run the same operating system which is of course android but there are various versions of this operating system. Android 6.0 is the most popular at the moment and is only released about a year or just under a year so it is the one to be going for. Android 7.0 is also released but there are not many boxes with this in the market place just yet.
The main difference then between the boxes comes from the hardware. Ideally you would want a box with at least 2GB of RAM. There are many cheap boxes on the market with 1GB of RAM but these are very poor and are not able for the tasks that people ask of them. At least 2GB of RAM and at least a quad core processor is what is recommended to get the best from the box.
