The Xiaomi Mi TV Box is Chinese smartphone company Xiaomi’s play to take on devices like Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, and Fire TV. Priced at only $69, and sporting features like integrated Google Cast and voice search, the 4K- and HDR-supporting device seems worth a look.
Having the Mi Box TV next to the TV will not take much space. We have a device that fits perfectly in the palm of the hand and has a square design with rounded tips and a body of black plastic without much shrillness. A small black box where only the logo of Mi en pequeño will draw our attention.
On The Hardware Side, Xiaomi Mi TV Box is equipped a 2GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 processor and 2GB of RAM and 8GB of storage that is capable of being expanded via a full-sized USB-A port on the back.
That’s all about in line with what you get from other set-top boxes in this price range, but unfortunately, that hardware can’t provide a great experience when displaying content at its full advertised 4K resolution.
Meanwhile, though Android TV supports most of the major streaming apps, to install them you have to visit the Google Play store from the device. Apple TV, by comparison, organizes apps into categories as part of its larger user interface design.
