The low-end TV-Box market is a safe bet for most brands that do not stop releasing low-priced models. Framed within this range today we have the Mecool M8S PLUS W a very simple equipment that arrives in a thin box that reminds us much of the Xiaomi Mi Box. A team as we say very simple in all its aspects, RAM, storage, connectivity … that the truth has very little appeal and that only seems suitable for streaming to 1080P.
SoC and memories
The 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 1 GB of RAM on the board and only a few 8 GB of eMMc storage memory, a very limited memory configuration for the times.
At the connectivity level we only have b/g/n Wi-Fi 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.
