HIMEDIA A5 Almlogic S912 Octa-Core Chips 64Bit CPU Android 6.0 TV Box, 2G/16G 3D BD-ISO 4K UHD 2.4G/5G Wifi Bluetooth 4.0 with Aluminum Shell
The HIMEDIA A5 is a good Android TV box with some good basic hardware.
The S912 CPU and 2GB of RAM will play videos fine and run basic games such as Grand Theft Auto or classic arcade games.
The internal 16GB ROM can be expanded using an SD-card which Android 6.0 allows and has a simple setup if needed.
We are still testing the in unit and will update if anything changes.
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
