Best android box is the one that has most of the characteristics you want at an affordable price. There are certain criteria that make an android TV box the best. Given below are the criteria for the best android TV box.
Frequent Firmware Updates
A device is likely to get improvement over time if it continues receiving regular updates. Therefore, do check the gadget’s history from this point of view. There are certain companies which totally do not provide any updates to their TV box system. No update leads to no improvement. This no-update thing is mostly found in the cheapest selling Android TV boxes.
4K display support
If you’re one of the people who like to watch their videos and movies at a display quality as high as 4K, an android TV box that contains HDMI 2.0 4096*2160 or 3840*2160 having an output capacity up to 60 Hz. Another thing that you would have to see is that up to 4K at 60 Hz, 10 bit HEVC/H.265codecs are easily supported without any obvious hassle.
A good android TV box should come with at least 5.1 HD audio support. Certain companies, despite claiming, don not provide complete audio pass-through support. Make sure the device possess it before buying.
Excellent Storage and Better Design
Often it happens with android devices that while an app is being installed or updates, the device gets slow and does not function properly. A good android device has a better storage that makes the device run faster and without interruption, even during the time when something is being loaded or installed. Best android TV boxes have a proper cooling system that does not let the device get heated even after running for a long period. The cheap ones over-heat easily, which leads to poor functioning of the device. Most of the android TV boxes present in the market have similar design. The new and trending two-key feature is a better option to go for.
The manufacturing company of an android TV box should have support platforms for aiding their customers in any way possible. Whether there is an installing, running or repairing issue, the representatives of the company should be approachable by the customers. All the top android TV box producing companies make sure that they serve their customers in the best way possible and make sure to create a forum where customers can contact them.
Support for HD and Ultra HD videos
Another capability that a good android TV must possess is support for high definition and ultra-high definition videos. Most of the A-list android TV boxes have Widewine Level 1 DRM support system. Many low quality devices are unable to stream videos in HD and can only display videos in SD due to the lack of proper DRM support.
The android TV boxes currently present in the market that fall closest to the criteria given above are S9 Amlogic the T10 Plus and the T95 max Android TV Box.
