If you happen to be in the market and looking for a new Android-based solution for your TV, then you do have quite a few options to choose from in the world of Android TV. However, they are not your only options as there is also an abundance of TV boxes which come running on Android. While these are not 'Android TV' TV boxes, the benefit is that these come running on a fuller version of Android and therefore, offer a greater degree of app compatibility. The other benefit is that they are significantly more affordable than typical Android TV boxes. In fact, right now GearBest has the SCISHION V88 TV Box, the NEXSMART D32 TV Box and the Mini M8S II 4K Smart TV Box available to buy and at some very competitive prices.
SCISHION V88 TV Box
First up we have the SCISHION V88 TV Box. This one is currently available to buy for a rock bottom price of $25.89. For that money, you are looking at a TV box which comes packing 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage and is powered by a Rockchip 3229 quad-core processor clocking at 1.5 GHz, along with a Mali-400 GPU. This particular Android TV box comes running on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box and comes with support for 4K playback.
NEXSMART D32 TV Box
Up next is the NEXSMART D32 TV Box and this one can be picked up for only $28.40. Which means it directly competes on price with the SCISHION V88 TV Box. As a result, much of the same specs are also on offer as the NEXSMART D32 TV Box comes packing 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage and the same Rockchip 3229 processor clocking at 1.5 GHz, along with a Mali-400 MP GPU. In addition, this box also comes running on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box and also supports 4K content.
Mini M8S II 4K Smart TV Box
Lastly, we have the Mini M8S II 4K Smart TV Box and this one is available at an affordable $40.99 price. For that money you are looking at 2GB RAM, 16GB storage and an Amlogic S905X quad-core processor clocking at 2.0 GHz, along with a Mali-450 GPU. This one also comes with the ability to expand the storage (up to 32GB) while also running on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). So while this one is more expensive than the other two options, this one does come with a bump in the specs, a newer version of Android, and a few additional perks. Like for instance, not only support for 4K content, but also support for VP9 and HDR10.
