This is the MX10 Android 7 TV Box Capable of streaming 4k footage, but, ist it worth it? Stick around to find out.
Is TechWizTime Hey guys, hope your week is going well, my name is Jonathan and this is TechWizTime, the channel where I create technology tutorials and review videos As you may have guessed, this is the MX10 Android TV Box It comes with Android 7.
2 But before we get into this I just want to thank Gearbest for sending this out to me, no money has exchanged hands and thoughts and opinions are my own What is in the box? So the first thing in there is the Box itself, but I’ll just put that to the side for a moment Bit of cardboard Okay, so the first thing in there is a HDMI Cable A cool looking remote Reminds me of the Roku Very nice And lastly, a 5 Volt 2.
5 Amp power supply Oh, another thing in there is the user manual down the bottom, so, if you get stuck, you can maybe find some answers there So lets have a look at the Box itself There we go, I’ll just peel this off And by the looks of it, it got a mat top there with a gold logo And glossy sides, the fingerprint magnet On the right, we have got 2 USB Ports, a USB3 port and a SD Card slot On the rear we’ve got another USB port, we’ve got a SPDF Port AV Port HDMI Ethernet And 5 Volt power Now this is a Quad-Core Cortex-A53 chipset on the RK3328 It’s got the Mali-450 GPU and 4GB of RAM The RAM is DDR3, just so you know There is also 32 GB of onboard storage Now this is capable of playing H-265 files in 4k resolution up to 60 frames per second But we’ll put that through the test There is also Wi-Fi in there, but I’ll have to confirm that when I go through the test itself So with the unboxing and the specs out of the way Lets go and have a look at benchmarks and see what this Box can actually do So first up we’ll test the storage and see how fast we can get this running, so Using A1 SD Bench on the internal storage, we get a Read-Write of 101MB per second and a Write-Read of 69MB per second, which is pretty good The SD Card slot though is where it falls, using a high speed memory card That is capable of over 90MB per second on the Read and Write, we are only seeing 16MB Read, and 19MB Write And lastly, the RAM speed comes in at 3416MB per second Now lets go and test the Net working speed, so, on Wi-Fi, we can see the speed test is at 27Mbits per second Down And 28Mbits per second Up Which isn’t too bad But switching it over to the LAN Speed or Wired connection, we are looking at 81Mbits per second Down And 34Mbits per second up So if you’re looking at downloading into this box, then I will definetively recommend a wired connection Over now to N22, we can see that the total score is 34096 With a broken down, we have got a 3D score of 1462 A UX score of 17352 A CPU score of 11106 And a RAM score of 4176 Switching over to Geekbench we can see a single core score of 541 And the multi-core score is 1396 3D gaming is fine for most 3D games When it comes to testing up the Hardware though, in PPSSPP, the PSP Emulator We can see Power Stone gets an average of about 40 to 50 frames per second, which isn’t too bad But the real test is always God of War, and in this case we are only seeing 1 to 6 frames per second, so It is not going to be able to emulate this one for you guys Now the thing that this is going to be used mostly for is as a media streamer, so Launching into Kodi we can see that Big Buck Bunny At the 4k resolution, 30 frames per second Is not too bad, it actually achieves that, but when we try and go over to the 60 frames per second file You can see that it just doesn’t work at all, so That one, you can stay clear of if you are going to be running 60 frames per second Over now to the jellyfish test, we’ve got the same file but encoded in 4 different ways There is a 1080p version, and 3 4k versions, the 1080p version is h264 With 55Mbits per second bitrate The 4k version is h265 And there is 3 of those, at a 140Mbits per second, 200Mbits per second and 400Mbits per second And you can see here with all 4 That the only one that really runs is the HD 55Mbits file, so If you are looking at using large 4k and hard encoded files, sorry Then this box isn’t for you unfornately So, with that said, general Youtube and Netflix streaming works fine, you can see here Youtube, one of my videos Is operating at the 1080p resolution and no problems whatsoever And even the Netflix app is working perfectly fine as well You can see here Stranger Things running perfectly How awesome is that? So that is the MX10 Android TV Box, is it worth the 60$? If you don’t have enough for an Nvidia Shield TV, the 2017 Model, I should say Then yes, for 60$ this is areally good buy, if you do have extra money though, the Nvidia Shield is obviously better So, what do you think of my first TV Box review? I’ve done phones, I’ve done laptops and now I’ve done a TV Box, so Let me know if I missed anything or if you want to see anything in the future for this kind of reviews Have you heard about a bird?
