Xiaomi Mi Box Android 6 TV : Neat little box that can do a lot if you set it up right

Neat little box that can do a lot if you set it up right. It’s small, has a responsive interface, an excellent remote control and great value. Unfortunately not a lot of apps available out of the box from the google app store. But there is kodi and some video players which can actually end up being a lot of content. Shame google shuts so many other apps out as it focuses more on chromecast.

Great value, great interface, works really well. . Great android tv but unfortunately there are a couple of apps that could be on it that aren’t available officially. Iplayer, itv hub, 4od and five aren’t available in the play store but you can sideload itv hub, 4od and five ok. Kodi works great and there’s an optical out for dts. Amazon video is available by sideloading again, bbc iplayer is available as a kodi add-on so while not perfect, you can build a nice simple to use home theater. The interface on android tv is very nice, smooth, and with a mi controller, you can play rally games, leo’s fortune and others very well as long as you use a fast usb memory stick to allow larger games to be installed. Youtube is ok and works nicely with the controller though i like building up a playlist and casting it to the mi box which yes, it also works as a chromecast. Very happy with this, plays everything, netflix, youtube and amazon all work great with the android tv interface.

I’ve been through many android boxes lately, the minix neo u1 is still the daddy for kodi use as it can run libreelec. I had high hopes for this box, it looked like a cheap alternative to the nvidia shield, unfortunately it comes up short on a couple of things. First the good:+fast smooth gui+great remote+google play storethe not so good:-no refresh rate switching. How can you ruin a great box by missing this out, hoping an update may fix this in the future. -playing hdr movies using kodi, they play and look great but exiting the movie leaves the tv in hdr mode, big problem, auto hdr doesn’t work, again i hope they can fix this in an update. Overall if you want android and the play store etc this is a great box, if you want it just for kodi, like myself, then look elsewhere, if they fix the refresh rate switching i will up my score as it’s a great box apart from this.

) i believe that the mi box 3 is a great choice for someone that.  im really impressed with what xiaomi delivered with this box in terms of performance at the low price that it costs. I was concerned that the wifi only connectivity option could not be enough to have a acceptable experience. I was totally wrong :)i believe that the mi box 3 is a great choice for someone that:- has a great wifi network (or will invest in a solution)- wants the android tv os experience- doesn’t mind installing apps trough ‘side loading’ systemi have the full resolution video review available on my youtube channel ‘roberto jorge’hope it helps.
