Xiaomi Mi Box S unboxing and review

ByJoe Horner 2019-06-22 2908

I've always been interested in Netflix, but I've been struggling with the Internet (because Netflix can't see it where it doesn't get in). Bilibili has a Bigdongdong introduced some knowledge, his home also happens to be equipped with a soft route, so he came to interest.

At first I used my home TV (it seemed like the first Letv Max70 I bought in 2013), but over time the 70 was unable to keep up with the times, stutter, small storage and, most importantly, unable to install Google Suite and Netflix clients.

During this period, I have tried Xiaomi Box 4, soft routing Virtual Machine, Foreign Trade Box X88 and so on.

Xiaomi box 4 can only install mobile phone client through the method, the experience is very poor, PASS;

The setup of the soft routing virtual machine is complex, and what is important is that it used to be in a weak power box, and if you want to use it, you have to take it out, PASS;.

X88 foreign trade AndroidTV box, the advantages are high configuration, native AndroidTV, support Netflix, shortcomings is not Netflix authorization up to 1080p can not see 4K, slow system update is now Android7,PASS;

ShildTV, currently does not have one of the best AndroidTV boxes, support a variety of native applications, Netflix is also licensed, but it is too expensive, and I do not need game features, I have Switch, Xbox One and PS4Pro ah. One might ask, Xbox and PS4 can also install Netflix, ah, it can be seen, and support 4K, but I really think it is very strange to see with the console, I opened it for the game.

In October, I saw that there was the latest MiboxS, but the channel could not find the goods. At the end of November, my boss told me that the goods had arrived, but the price was very high. I asked if I still wanted it. I hesitated to decide that I had to buy the X88 before I bought it, so I had today's open case.

Installed a Dangbei market, which needs to be added in the APP column on the home page.

This place needs to say, many domestic APP do not support AndroidTV specification, so here can not be added in the home page, the current measured kiwi, cloud audio-visual aurora can not, cool Meow and bilibili clients can, praise one!

Feeling of use

At present, it is very smooth to use, watching oil pipe and Netflix HD video is simple and straightforward, but the bottleneck lies in my TV, that is, my Letv Max70 TV can only watch 1080p. Recently, I have been watching about 75 TV sets. I have been watching Dafa but to 2W or so, I still want to buy a Xiaomi TV 4 75.

The original AndroidTV is really not covered, the fluency of the system is already very strong, and obviously the domestic software is very good in the specification.

For example, AndroidTV requires the direction of the key is the menu option, but there are many domestic APP need to use the menu key, such as bilibili client.


Advantages: native AndroidTV system, native support Google Cast, compared with ShildTV price is lower, Netflix UHD4K support, system update faster, voice search powerful

Disadvantages: memory and storage are generally 2G memory 8G storage, no menu key domestic application is not convenient, purchase is not convenient, the price is inflated at this stage, there is no network cable Jack, no TF card expansion.
