Welcome back, and let’s start with the unboxing.
The Sunvell T95R Pro, comes in this blackbox with some basic specifications on the front an back.
So I will just unpack the contents of thispackage an put the specs up on the screen.
The Sunvell T95R Pro, runs on the AmlogicS912 octa core cortex A53 CPU, running up to 1.
The GPU, is the Mali T820 tri core GPU, runningup to 750 Mhz.
It comes with 3GB of DDR3 RAM, and 32GB ofinternal storage.
It comes with 802.
11 dual band 2.
4 + 5.
8 GHzWiFi, and Bluetooth 4.
It runs on Android 7.
1 Nougat, on a 64bitsystem.
In the box, you have the T95R Pro unit itself.
You get this infrared remote, the remote looksnice, and it will control the basic functions of the box, but for more advanced functionsand navigation, a Bluetooth air mouse or a mini touchpad keyboard would be a better option.
Also inside the box you get 1 HDMI cable.
A 5 volts 2 amps power adapter.
And your users guide.
Let’s have a look at the box.
The box is made of a nice strong plastic, with the T95R pro branding at the top.
To the back, you have 1 HDMI port, one USB2.
0 port, you have 1 RJ45 Ethernet LAN port, 1 audio video port, one optical audio port, and your DC power input.
To the left, you have another USB 2.
0 port, and an SD card slot.
There’s nothing to the other side.
To the front, you have a multi color LED powerlight.
And to the bottom, you have some ventilationholes.
It’s now time to connect this box to my TV, and start the second segment of this review.
So I’m all set and ready to go.
And as I startup the box it shows the AmlogicS912 octa core logo, then the M box startup animation, and then you are taken to thislauncher.
The launcher is nice and simply laid out, and has the same design used in previous Sunvellbocses.
As you can see below here at the bottom ofthe launcher you have a navigation bar for easy navigation.
This navigation bar doesn’t apply much tothe stock remote, but comes in really handy when using a regular mouse or Bluetooth airmouse or mini touchpad keyboard.
The bar comes with your regular volume controls, home and back buttons, a multitasking cascade button, a screen capture button, and a hidebutton.
Like in most of the previous Sunvellbocses, once you hide the navigation bar you cannot retrieve it, you have to restart the box toget it back! Adding shortcuts to the launcher is simple, simply click on this add button, An select any shortcut you would like to add to thelauncher.
Let’s take a look at the apps section.
In this section you have a list of all theapps that comes installed on the box.
You have your core system apps, along witha couple movie streaming apps like Netflix and KD player, which is a Kodi 17 build.
You have an LED power light control application, that allows you to choose the color and behaviour of the power light.
The box doesn’t come with all the apps neededto complete my review, so I will pause this video for a second to install these apps, and when I return we’ll continue.
So I’m back, and as I continue with this benchmarkingsegment of my review, let’s check to see if the box is rooted.
It shows that the box is rooted, running onAndroid 7.
1 Nougat operating system.
I am always pleased to see when a box comesrooted, because it gives me the freedom to download any app from the Google play storewithout restrictions, it also allows me to side load APK files using the appinstallerthat comes with the box, and it allows me to play games with my favorite key mappingapplication.
Sunvell technical team has always maintainedthis style of hassle free pro gramming, and I will love to see more TV boxes being launchedespecially in the Rockchip line of TV box hardware, where other programmers have failedto meet this criteria.
So I give Sunvell lots of credit for maintainingthis important feature.
Let’s see if there are any wireless updatesfor this box.
It shows that the box is currently up to date, and there are no updates at this time.
However, we have seen in recent boxes firmwareupdates being managed by third party developers, and they are being released on blogging siteswith the use of flash tools an image files.
So it has been quite some time since lastI have seen a wireless update work.
Let’s take a look at the DRM information, or digital rights management.
This shows which of the supported servicesthe TV box uses to stream mainstream movies from services like Netflix and Sling TV, whichallows devices to stream their content in HD and 4K quality.
It shows that the T95R pro doesn’t have supportfor three of the prime time supported services, which means that premium paid services likeNetflix will show but not in 4K quality.
However, this does not affect streaming moviesin 4K and HD quality from APK services, and from open streams like YouTube and Kodi.
Let’s Take a look at some system and hardwareinformation.
Under system, it shows that the manufactureris Amlogic, and the model is the M box.
Below it shows that the box comes with 3GBof RAM, and from the product page description we already know that it’s DDR3 memory.
Below that it shows the remaining RAM andinternal storage from the total 32GB after the Android installation.
Under CPU information, it shows that the CPUis a 64bit octa core Cortex A53 CPU.
Running up to 1.
It also shows that the box has support forboth 32 and 64bit ABIs, which means that the box can play both 32 and 64bit applications.
Under display information, it shows that thebox’s display is powered by the Mali T820 tri core GPU, with a refresh rate of 60 hz.
Under network information, it shows that thebox has dual band WiFi support, along with signal strength link speed and frequency information.
Under Android information, it shows that theoperating system is Android 7.
1 Nougat, and it also shows that the box is rooted.
Under thermal information, the box hangs around60°C on normal cooling, and around 50° on passive cooling.
Under codecs information, you have the usuallist of codecs needed for 4K video playback.
From this list, we have codecs like H.
264, HEVC, and VP9 decoders.
There’s Know H.
265 featured in this list.
And that’s it for system and hardware information, and let’s now look at the results from the bench marks.
I’ll now show the results from the memoryread an write speeds.
And It shows that the box has a RAM copy speedof 3 thousand six hundred an 25 MB/s, the internal memory, has a read speed of a hundredan 2 MB/s, and a write speed of 75.
The SD card slot got a read speed of 23 MB/s, and a read speed of 13.
The RAM an internal storage got some highscores, and it shows the kind of optimization used by Sunvell in their TV boxes.
We now have the results from the WiFi speedtest.
The results show that on the 2.
4 and 5.
8 GHzWiFi bands, we had good download and upload speeds.
We now have the results from the Antutu benchmark.
And the results show that the T95R Pro gotan Antutu score of 42546.
Next, we have the results of the Geekbench4 CPU benchmark.
After all tests were complete, the box gota score of five hundred an one single core, and two thousand four hundred and 33 multicore.
And finally, we have the results from theIce storm extreme GPU benchmark.
In the end, the box’s GPU got a score of fivethousand five hundred and 46.
And that’s it for the benchmarks.
I now focus my attention on the streamingand video playback of the box.
Earlier I mentioned that the KD player isindeed a Kodi 17 build, and if we open that and go to settings and then to system information, here it shows that the version of Kodi is 17.
The player doesn’t come with any third partyaddons, an everyone in the online streaming community should know by now why this is so.
However, if you so desire to install somethird party addons to stream free movies and TV shows, there are lots of easy step by steptutorials on YouTube showing you how to do just that.
So for demonstration purposes I installedsome third party addons of my own, I tested them and they stream movies and TV shows inHD quality without any problems on my internet package.
If you’re not into Kodi an installing thirdparty addons, you can take the easier route and install movie streaming APKs from numeroussources, without the hassle of setting up source URLs an installing from repositories.
Simply install one of the top APKs and you’reready to start streaming with no further configurations needed.
A list of the top streaming APKs can be foundin the link in the description area below this video.
A TV box like the T95R Pro is not only aboutstreaming, if you have a collection of movies stored on external storage, you can watchthem using the USB port and using either the video player that comes with the box, or youcan use Kodi media player, or you can install a video player from the Google Play Storelike the MX player or the VLC player.
For the best video playback from externaldevices, I advised that you purchase an external hard drive or flash drive with high data transferspeeds, as this affects the read speed between the device and the player, resulting in bufferingand poor viewing experience.
However, I discovered that downloading thevideos onto the internal storage of the box results in flawless playback of HD and 4Kvideos.
So I went ahead and loaded my 4K video samplesonto the bocses internal storage, and let’s watch as I play them using the box’s stockvideo player.
As you have seen, the box was able to playall of my 4K video samples, even the whole collection of jellyfish videos ranging upto 400 Mbps in MKV format.
Everybody loves and uses YouTube.
So to get the best YouTube experience, downloadthe editors choice YouTube application from the Google Play store, over writing the exsistingversion that comes installed on the box.
So let’s play a 4K video sample to see what’sthe highest resolution I can get on this box.
Keep in mind, that my TV is a 1080p television, so I may not be able to get up to 4K quality.
The YouTube application plays in HD qualityon this box, but I wasn’t able to get 4K quality maybe due to the limitations of my TVs resolution.
Like to play those addictive games on yourphone, then why not on your big screen.
Connect a regular mouse or an air mouse ormini touchpad keyboard, and from the comfort of your living room or personal space, enjoyall the popular games like candy crush like never before, in HD with digital sounds.
Take it to the next level, and connect a Bluetoothgamepad or a normal USB wired gamepad, an enjoy more advanced games like Asphalt extremeracing, and iron blade.
So in summary, the Sunvell T95R Pro is oneof the better Android 7.
1 TV boxes I’ve reviewed.
I like how it comes rooted out of the box, it comes with a navigation bar at the bottom, it comes with 3GB of DDR3 RAM, an 32GB ofinternal Storage.
I like the new concept for the power LED light, an the box doesn’t overheat or freeze up on you.
You can watch unlimited free movies and TVshows with APK services, and via the KD player.
It plays 4K videos without any problems, andgames ran smooth an the 3D graphics was of a high quality.
The only issue I had with this box was thatif you hide the navigation bar, you cannot retrieve it by swiping in an upwards motion, you have to restart the box to retrieve it! So I’m giving the T95R Pro, the green lightfor performance and stability, along with the latest operating system and root accessibility.
So if you would like to get your hands onthis great TV box, see the link provided in the description area.
