What is the best Android Box for 2017?

buyer beware android tv boxAndroid boxes have exploded onto the scene over the last few years and there is now a huge range available all over the internet. They come in all shapes and sizes and are priced from as low as €50.00 all the way up to over €200. I see many people who are not very tech savvy making the mistake of thinking that the €50 box is better value then a box that is €150.00 but this is not always the case. Many of the android boxes been sold for under €100.00 are often very basic and have a slow processor and the minimal amount of RAM. An android box should come with at least 2GB of RAM to be able to run smoothly especially if you are planning on running Kodi on the box which is hugely resource intensive.

Some other things to look out for when buying an android box is the speed of the processor. AMD processors are quite good and are often affordable. I would not purchase an android box that does not have a good quad core or even octa core AMD processor. Any less than this and the box will struggle when put under pressure opening multiple apps and doing other important processes. Pioneers of the android box like https://www.androidtvboxes.ie also the stress the important of making sure the box is not a cheap clone like many of the TV boxes on sites like ebay and amazon. Most of the good android boxes are made in the same factory and will come with an AMD processor, DDR3 RAM all from the original manufacturer.

So if you see a box for €50 being sold you can be guaranteed that it is a cheap 1GB RAM box that will more than likely crash every time you try to run Kodi. Also a lot of these boxes brick after a few months which means they are useless and are not able for the necessary firmware upgrades. So buyer beware when purchasing your android box and use a reputable company that offer a warranty on their products.
