The remote control is better than most controllers many Kodi boxes come with. It even has a button to quickly bring Kodi up.

It comes with a Launcher that is not that pretty but does the job.

Moving the left or right buttons and then enter will let you choose the application to start.
 
One downside is there is no built-in Bluetooth.
 
There are small keyboard remotes that come with a 2.4 GHz dongle which worked well with the unit, if the remote that comes with it doesn’t work for you.
 
Connecting to the WiFi is simple enough like all android TV boxes. It does only have 802.11n 2.4 GHz wireless which is good enough to stream online content, just don’t expect the speed of the new 802.11ac 5GHz WiFi.
 
Most all the low cost budget android TV boxes lack when it comes to wireless. Depending how far the router is away from the unit sometimes a booster or Ethernet cable needs to be run.
 
The DOLAMEE D9 streamed over WiFi better than most budget boxes with the router 10 feet away beyond a wall.
 
It comes with a default Kodi build with no add-ons installed which is a easy fix. Add-ons can be installed individually or with a build such as Apollo or Pulse.

Videos streamed well from online sources or copies on a SD-card.
 
Testing out a game I played Asphalt Xtreme and it did good playing much better than I thought it would.

Running AnTuTu Benchmark test is gave a 40972 score, which when compared to the Nvidia Shield score of 65995 is low, but to be expected with the price.

Summary
The DOLAMEE D9 does what its made to do which is stream and play videos from online sources using Kodi, Netflix, or other services.
 
A Kodi android TV box in 2017 should have at least a S905 or S912 processor like the DOLAMEE D9, so it has the ability to stream online content well.
 
The 1.5GB of RAM is a bit below the 2GB recommend in 2017 but still much better than the many 1GB versions.
 
1.5GB of RAM will have no problems running Kodi and streaming videos and helps to lower the cost.
 
Overall the DOLAMEE D9 is a good unit for the price. It is a box built for those on a budget so don’t expect to much.

    I just purchased this box a few days ago and am sitting here watching Vikings in 1080p and have to say this box sure beat the one I sent back that had a virus right from the start and paid twice as much for it that this one, $49. bucks! I was here to find things to help me program it better and run across they are reviewing it, Ha! Hey the remote is a little soft on the buttons you need to push a little hard sometime I see but no deal beaker and so far I’m liking it and am seeing I’m coming close to cutting the CORD!!! with this I right there now so come the 17th of this month good bye Charter Cable, just internet and getting a antenna and hopeful I be good. Hey I really like how easy it is to navigate thru this box, I found how to load add-ons yesterday on a site other than this one which I found tonight and have bookmarker this one and news letters, and I’m liking this site just because here I am and new box, new review of it and yes this box is rocking and for CHEAP! , Good night and I’ll up-date more myself of this box as I get farther into it and let y’all know if it worthy enough, but for $49. bucks I don’t think you can go wrong!
