Review  GoStreamer G5+ Quad Core 4K Ultra HD Wi-Fi Android TV Box
The GoStreamer G5+ is a Android TV box built to run mainly with Kodi.

Like all Android TV boxes it can run apps from the Play Store so using Kodi is not necessary.

The package comes with instructions, HDMI cable, power cord, and remote control.

The 1GB of RAM shows more than half being used with no video playing.

Summary
The GoStreamer G5+ is a good box to stream video with.

The support seems to also be good which is important when it is time for an upgrade or if a problem arises.

It will need to be customized with your own favorite repositories and addons as only the basic ones will be installed.

The 1GB of RAM it uses is a bit low and most Android TV boxes are using 2 GB of RAM but the custom interface does seem to get rid of a lot of bloat found in other boxes.

Currently, I am still testing it out and will update if any changes occur.

As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.

    I am interested in your unit, but i have a question on using it> I have no experience at all in computing or typing info in to the computer. Will I be able too use it? If I get into trouble what do I do? I am not much of a writer.
