New Chinese box from the cheapest range that we find in Chinese online stores called A95X R5 and that stands out for its colorful box, far from the traditional predominant gray ranges.
To further brighten our living room we have a small RGB light line on the top of its box that allows us to customize its colors to our liking. Aesthetic details aside the A95X R5 is a Chinese Box that includes RK3318 Quad Core SoC from Rockchip and can be used perfectly with media players like Kodi and simple games but is not recommended for streaming services like Netflix or Amazon Prime Video in your maximum quality, if you are interested in this type of services we recommend other better devices for this purpose.
