Boxing comes in a pretty catchy box with the name of the model. The box contains instructions, a classic 5 volt power supply 2 amperes, an HDMI-HDMI cable for connecting to a TV.
The included remote control is not quite standard. The fact is that the connection is via a USB transmitter, that is, the remote control itself takes up one USB port in the TV BOX. In the hand, the remote control is very comfortable.
It is made of matte plastic with a rubberized control unit. Powered by two AAA batteries. At the top of the remote we have an LED indicator, a power button and a microphone.
Below them is a pause and a switch on the mouse. Many may think that this is the so-called AirMouse, but alas. The mouse button just turns on the cursor and allows you to control it using the four control arrows located below, and the button located in the middle performs the confirmation function. Well, a little lower, we have standard Android system buttons.
The main pearl of this remote control is the microphone on button, which allows you to type text in your voice. This is especially useful when searching for the desired movie or series, as well as a video on YouTube.
Boxing itself looks quite compact. Its upper part, like the box, has bright colored stripes. At the top is the processor model: RK3328, and in the middle - the name H96 Max +, a 4K support icon and a memory configuration value (32 gigabytes).
At the front we have an LED indicator, and the box automatically turns on when power is applied, as well as the corresponding button from the remote control. On the next side is a slot for a microSD memory card, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. The USB 2.0 port is used to update the firmware and connect the remote control. That is, in fact, only USB 3.0 is free. Of course, TV BOX is a stationary device and you can easily connect an adapter to it with at least 2.0 USB ports. However, such a splitter will have to be purchased separately, and the hanging “tails” somewhat spoil the appearance of the device.
At the back we have AV output, HDMI version 2.0, ETHERNET and power input.
The lower part contains holes for heat dissipation, 4 legs and a sticker with a memory configuration (4/32 GB) and a CPU.
The console interface is simple and intuitive. At the bottom you can add application icons, and the main services are rendered in the form of huge colorful tiles.
The list of applications has been expanded by English-language video services. From useful we have PlayMarket, two file managers, RKMC, YouTube and superuser management.
Root comes out of the box here. In the settings you can select the resolution, color set and adjust the size of the visible part of the image and color.
There is sound support in configurations 5.1 and 7.1. There is also working support for HDMI CEC, which allows you to automatically turn on and off the TV when you turn on and off the box.
For hardware in the H96 MAX Plus, not everything is obvious. Fresh 4 core RK3328 surprises with not only low performance in benchmarks, but also with a refusal to test the graphic part. The value of GeekBench tests.
But Android version 8.1 is installed. And RAM with a huge margin. In terms of speed, the memory of the console is also not surprising. Read / write speeds respectively 33.75 / 35.88Mb / s. Wi-Fi through two walls is stable.
Online videos in FullHD H.264 quality are played correctly. In PlayMarket you can find many applications with playlists of channels in your region.
As for the "heavy" formats, support for 4K, HDR and H.265 is claimed, but in this mode the prefix is quite hot.
In the advantages of TV boxing, you can take out an interesting remote with a microphone, 4 GB of RAM, USB 3.0 and a low price. The drawbacks of the box are as follows: one free USB port and heating during operation, although the manufacturer promises to fix this drawback in the next update. I also recommend paying attention to the H96 MAX updated version with Android 9.0, 4/64 Gb.
