The low-priced Android Smart Box market is where is more supply and this week we have seen new models moved by cheapers SoCs. The Super V is the cheap TV-Box today that this time is powered by the recent chip RK3318. A Box that lives up to its range but at least includes bluetooth and 4GB of RAM with which as a media player we can work perfectly. What most strikes us is its external decoration, something that says a lot about this Box.
You can see the performance of the Super V in a similar model of Box that we have already reviewed. This Android TV-Box can be used as a basic media player with KODI or IPTV and we can also run simple games without too much resource demand given its hardware. We must remember that these cheap Boxes do not have secured support and do not have DRM certificates with which we can only see Netflix as a basic image.
