Today we find on Aliexpress.com a small Stick of the cheapest range valid to smartize any TV in a basic way called X96 S400.
A Stick with very simple features, although its version with 2GB of RAM would allow us to use it with KODI up to 1080p or for IPTV if we don’t demand too much of it. Its operating system is Android 10 but optimization for this type of device as we already know is always very basic. A Media player only suitable for basic used to install on a secondary TV where we have a minimum space available. You can see the performance of that Allwinner H313 SoC in a similar Review.

We have on-board versions with 1/2 GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 8/16 GB of eMMc storage memory that can be expanded from the micro SD card reader that this equipment includes on the side of its plastic box.
Regarding wireless connectivity, this TV-stick has Wi-Fi b / g / n but does not have Bluetooth.
