The world of android TV boxes can be quite over whelming as there are so many choices and so many boxes on offer, but what is it you should look for when buying an android box. There are hundreds of boxes on the market and they are all various prices ranging from under $50 all the way into $250 and up so what is the difference in these boxes and what should you look for when shopping for a new TV box.
There are several main things to keep in mind when shopping for your android TV box. The first thing to look at in any android box is the hardware. The main things to look for in the hard ware is the amount of memory the box as well as the brand of chip. The amount of memory will vary from 8GB all the way up to 32GB. Newer boxes will also have a slot for an SD card of up to another 32GB of memory so this is something to keep in mind.
Other main differences in the boxes are the version of android. Many cheap boxes will run older versions of android such as android 5.1 or even android 4.4 which is a very old version now. We would recommend android 7.1 and upwards as this is the latest version with another version on the way later this year. According to the androidtvboxes.com.au website android 7.1 has had some issues on the latest TV boxes but this is due to be fixed in the next upgrade.
A wireless keypad is also highly recommend as the original remote control is quite poor on pretty much all of the boxes that we have tested which is a lot. Other things to be mindful of are a good supplier and warranty as some of the cheaper boxes are not great quality and do eventually brick. I hope this helps you guys on the hunt for an android TV box!
