Today we come across another retro console on AliExpress, the Super Console X3 Plus, which in this case, fortunately, is powered by an AMlogic S905X3 SoC, one of the best options for a retro console.
A system that is based on the typical Chinese Android Box with some additions, such as an internal fan to facilitate cooling and a pair of joysticks to play without problems. As systems, we have Android TV preinstalled in the internal memory, EmuELEC 4.5 in a micro SD and the CoreELEC multimedia center in a second micro SD. As always, in the micro SD where EmuELEC comes we have loaded thousands of games from all compatible platforms. It is only enough to insert the micro SD with EmuELEC to start the Box in emulation mode and access the games, if we do not insert it, Android TV will start.
