The best interface for your TV
The Xiaomi Mi Box S is a very complete multimedia box for the price at which it is offered today. Its greatest asset is undoubtedly the integration of the best interface for a television, namely Android TV. Indeed, the Mountain View company’s operating system is the most sophisticated and the easiest to handle, with many well-known functions, such as Chromecast to broadcast content from a smartphone, tablet or Chrome browser, or even Google Assistant, accessible directly through a dedicated button on the remote control.
Of course there is not only that. You can also access the Play Store to download all the streaming applications you want, via Netflix, Disney +, Prime Video, MyCanal, Molotov or even ADN. There are even a few games that run pretty well on the Xiaomi box, some of which can be played directly through a controller that plugs into the box’s USB port.
Less powerful than an Nvidia Shield TV
The Nvidia Shield TV is very powerful thanks to its Tegra X1 chip, but is also sold 3 to 4 times more expensive. With the Mi Box S you are still entitled to good performance with an Amlogic S905X chip with a 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex-A53 processor and a 750 MHz Mali 450 graphics chip, all supported by 2 GB of living memory. If it can run some 3D games from the Play Store, this configuration mainly offers compatibility with many video formats, including 4K at 60 frames per second.
As for the design, it is that of its predecessor, still in black tones, but it is clear that there are small minor changes present, such as the manufacturer’s logo now placed exactly in the middle. Another remarkable fact: it is slightly thicker, due to an increased technical sheet.
