MXQ Pro 4k review: with high quality and low price

ByFields Corrielus 2019-08-02 2809

First of all, you may wonder what an Android TV Box is? First of all an IPTV box and an Android TV box are the same thing. And there are many terminologies to talk about these TV Boxes: streaming box, Kodi box, etc. These boxes can therefore be used to transform your TV into a "Smart TV". This means that you will be able to access all Android applications on your TV. And of course you will have access to the internet and therefore to streaming services. In addition, you will have access to IPTV services that will allow you to access all pay and international channels. Many other features are possible. We will therefore present below our opinion and the features of one of these IPTV boxes which is the MXQ Pro 4k.

MXQ Pro 4k​ 

MXQ Pro 4k – Hardware

Features and characteristics

The MXQ Pro 4k TV box features a high-performance 2 GHz Quad Core processor. This, combined with the Penta Core Mali-450 GPU, gives it a lot of power for most of the tasks you ask it to perform. You can find more powerful boxes, but certainly not at this price. The processor and GPU are fast enough to play 4k videos. In addition, you will have no problem running the majority of games on this decoder. However, MXQ does not support Bluetooth. Therefore, make sure you have a USB port controller. What is slightly lacking in MXQ is that it has only 1 GB of RAM. Many streaming boxes now come with 2 GB to ensure smooth play and multitasking. We did not encounter any apparent slowdowns in our tests.

Memories

This MXQ Pro 4K offers enough space for a streaming device. It has 8GB of Flash memory, which means you don't have to worry about running out of storage space when you use the MXQ mainly for streaming. You can download as many applications as you like. But if you're looking to store movies, you'll run out of space quickly. This TV Box has a USB port, so you can store files on an external drive. Therefore, with internal and external storage, you are ready for hours of endless entertainment. In addition, the MXQ Pro 4K also has an external card reader. You can add an SD card up to 32 GB if you need more storage space.

Connectivities

The MXQ Pro 4K box supports Wi-Fi and Ethernet. Wifi and Ethernet speeds are sufficient for any type of streaming. This device does not support Bluetooth, which is one of its disadvantages. As long as you want a streaming device, it's a great purchase, but if you're looking for something that can handle heavy games, then this product may not be the right choice. It comes with an AC adapter that can be used for other gadgets, a remote control, an RCA cable, an HDMI cable and a user manual. Remember to take the EU plug if you live in Europe.

MXQ Pro 4k – Software

OS

The software of this device is not exceptional, but it is by no means bad. The operating system installed is Android 5.1.1. You can download all your favorite Android applications without any problem. Therefore, the MXQ Pro 4K gives you access to all popular streaming applications from Netflix to YouTube. In addition, some additional modules are pre-installed with Kodi. Kodi is an important feature because almost everyone uses it for streaming these days. However, if you want to get rid of all unnecessary additions, you can always choose to reset the device. In addition, you can upgrade to Android version 6.0 Marshmallow if you are the type of person who likes to run the latest version of the operating system.

Interface

Many people found the user interface boring. The home screen comes with huge icons assembled in a way that is not very eye-catching. However, if you wish, you can always install another launcher adapted to your preferences. In addition, the device is easy to configure and this is a merit that cannot be ignored.

MXQ Pro 4k – Performance

Reactivity

This device does not keep you waiting with a constantly slow streaming. There is no buffering even when broadcasting high resolution content. The device is perfectly responsive and does not lag. Even when videos are played for hours, it does not overheat, freeze, or stop working completely.

Kodi

If you use a TV Box mainly for Kodi, then this box is all you need. For those who want a TV Box specifically for streaming, this is probably the best choice. In fact, Kodi is pre-installed on the device and is fully optimized. You can rely entirely on this box, if you want to watch any television program and can say goodbye to your cable subscription.

Image quality

The image quality that this TV box offers is top of the range. It supports all kinds of resolutions. 4K and HD videos are no problem. Clear and smooth image quality is what makes the MXQ Pro 4K so special. It offers high quality at a very attractive price. This makes the MXQ Pro 4k such a popular Android TV box.

Audio & Video

This MXQ Pro 4k TV box supports all types of popular audio and video formats. It supports almost all common audio formats available from MP2 to MP3 and MP4. In addition, you get TrueHD and DTS support to test your surround sound system. Whatever video format you use, MXQ manages it perfectly. In addition, because the device has an HDMI port, it can stream stream with clear picture quality to your TV.

Gaming

Although you can download as many Android applications as you like, this TV box is more for streaming content than for gaming. There is no Bluetooth availability, which may be limited for some games or your equipment. As the remote control is also cheap, this adds to the reason why the game is not so impressive on this device. However, there are many games available and you can still attach a keyboard or mouse pad with the USB Type-A port it has.

Summary

Overall, there are many more positive points for this IPTV box than negatives. The characteristics of this box are remarkable, even if its design and interface are a little simple. The MXQ box has adequate storage space, operates at high speed, provides clarity and works perfectly with Kodi. It does its job well, and some of its features are even better than those of the much more expensive TV boxes. For all those who love movies, sports and TV shows and are looking for a box at a reasonable price, the MXQ Pro 4K is the right choice. The device is of high quality and available at low prices. That's what makes it so interesting. The few defects it has can easily be ignored because of its price. This is why this TV box is a good choice for use mainly for video and streaming. However, if you are looking for a higher end device, which offers the latest and most powerful hardware on the market, the Matricom G-Box Q2 would be a much better choice. It is more expensive but offers excellent hardware and software features.
