Undoubtedly, and leaving aside smartphones and tablets, Android TV systems are the top products sales in Chinese shops in recent months. And with examples like the V88 Scishion of which I will speak today, we can turn our old TV into a Smart TV all (or adding a media player to which we have) for a price almost laughable.
The Scishion V88 is a small TV Box equipped with Android 5.1 operating system, and this means we can have on our TV all the content and applications of the operating system Google, like any smartphone or tablet (controlled light by remote control ). This includes applications such as Netflix, Youtube, Twitch, social networking, games and so on.
In this case, the media player is ready to be compatible with playback of content in 4K resolution, although as we shall see now with the hardware you have equipped would recommend rather for Full HD TVs. And Rockchip RK3229 SoC that its quad-core 1.5GHz would rather just for 4K, although it is actually compatible with 4K playback at 60 FPS. For movies and other, limited to 24 FPS, however it should be enough.
The SoC is complemented by an ARM Mali 400 GPU and 1GB of RAM, along with 8 GB of internal storage which partly are occupied by the operating system. Luckily, it supports the installation of an SD memory up to 16 GB to expand this capability, and of course features USB OTG ports for connecting external hard drives to play content directly from them. To connect to the TV has an HDMI port, and also in the package includes a remote to control everything from the comfort of the couch.
It also has LAN (10/100) connectivity and WiFi to connect to your home network and thus provide online services Android operating system. In addition, if we have a NAS in our home we can play the contents of it through the network in the Scishion V88 without the slightest inconvenience.
In general, as you see it is a very simple but versatile device time, which will give us all that the Android operating system has to offer for a price very, very small. And these days we have to offer in GearBest, can buy without discount codes for 17.67 euros today, although it is limited to 180 units.
Tomorrow will cost a dollar (limited to 250 units) and other additional dollar after tomorrow (in this case limited to 1000 units), staying at a price still will be below 20 euros. Given what gives us certainly seems a bargain at this price.
