Great price that we have today in the flash offers from Aliexpress.com for the low-end TV Box Mecool M8S PLUS W with an external design that copies the Xiaomi Mi Box. A team that has its ridiculous price and that can be used, if we are not very demanding, to be used as an FullHD media player with KODI without problems or use basic apps like Youtube. Keep in mind that this TV-Box is limited in terms of maximum output resolution at 4K @ 30fps, hence its price, so it is recommended to use it on a FullHD resolution TV at most.
SoC and memories
The Android TV-Box Mecool M8S PLUS W we see that it has as central core Amlogic S905W SoC that includes four CPU cores ARM Cortex-A53 64 bit capable of reaching up to 1.5GHz and a Mali-450mp5 GPU capable of decoding video up to 4K@30fps. It has 2 GB of RAM on the board and only a few 16 GB of eMMc storage memory, a very limited memory configuration for the times.
At the connectivity level we only have Wi-Fi b/g/n with internal antenna and as connectors we only have an HDMI 2.0 interface, a pair of USB 2.0 connectors and an analog A / V output. The operating system is Android 7.1 and comes standard with the IPTV software STALKER MAG25X.
