In one of our recent posts, we have talked about the 5 best Android TV boxes on GearBest. Here we will have two types of dongles: the so-called mini TV boxes that come with their own operating systems and most of the needed apps pre-installed and the display link dongles that will let you cast your mobile, tablet or laptop screen onto your TV display.
The H96 Pro is a small gadget with a big potential for improving your home entertainment. The dongle comes with 2GB RAM + 16GB ROM and sports the latest Android operating system — Android 7.1.1. Simply plug the dongle into your TV and you are all set with a great user-friendly interface on a big screen. Powered by the Amlogic S912 Octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU, the dongle delivers a fast and smooth performance with a high-speed feedback. You will be able to watch all your favorite media in 4K x 2K quality at 60fps. And, thanks to the H.265 and H.264 decoding, your files will be efficiently stored on the dongle without compromising their quality.
Next, we have the Coowell V5 TV Broadband Dongle. This one comes with a smaller price tag but more than a reasonable set of specs for the price. You have your Android 6.0 operating system for easy navigation and the Amlogic S905X quad-core CPU for a quick and stable performance. The dongle supports 4K resolution and is equipped with the Penta-core Mali-450 GPU — a treat for all the gamers out there.
Now, we are moving into the display link dongles category. The WECAST E8 HDMI TV Dongle will help you project your smartphone, tablet or laptop screen onto your TV — offering a much more convenient viewing experience. The dongle is compatible with Android, Mac OS, iOS and Windows — so, you won't have a problem casting your screen no matter what type of devices you are using. The WECAST E8 is plug and play — simply connect it your phone or laptop and it's ready to go, no additional drivers, apps or software downloads needed. An interesting thing about the dongle is its unusual shape — not a stick, but actually a circle, easy to carry around in your pocket and large enough not be easily lost.
Last but not least, we have the classic MiraScreen A2. Just like the dongle above, the A2 lets you easily display your phone, laptop or tablet content on your HDTV screen. The MiraScreen supports 1080P resolution and is compatible with Android 4.2, Mac OS X 10.9, iOS 7.0 and Windows 8.1. You also have Miracast, Airplay and DLNA support. The dongle is super portable and can even fit into your wallet. Once again, you need no drivers or special apps, simply plug and play.
