As systems we have Android 9 preinstalled on the internal memory as in a normal TV-Box and EmuELEC 4.5 on a micro SD. We only need to insert the micro SD that has EmuELEC and comes loaded with games, to start the Box in emulation mode and access the games, if we do not insert it, the Box will start with Android. This is the typical Chinese Android Box with some additions, such as a pair of joysticks to play games without problems.
A simple and fairly inexpensive solution for those who do not want to complicate with installations and downloads of retro games. An all in one that if we want we can assemble ourselves with better specifications.
