Great price that we have this weekend for the popular Chinese TV-Box X3 mini with a very good price, since it stays at $31.77 for its version with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage memory.
The X3 mini is a very good option as a 4K multimedia player thanks to its S905X3 SoC, the best in its price range and its 4 GB of RAM that will allow us to move heavy APPs like KODI without problems or install, for example, OpenELEC. Its Mali-G31 MP2 GPU is also powerful enough to move most games, although we must bear in mind if we want to use apps as paid streaming platforms in most we will not be able to access the highest video quality, since this box lacks certificates for this.
