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 biggest asset is undoubtedly the integration of the best interface for a television, namely Android TV. Indeed, the OS of the Mountain View company is the most refined and the easiest to handle, with many well-known features, such as Chromecast to broadcast content from a smartphone, tablet or Chrome browser, or even Google Assistant, accessible directly via a dedicated button on the remote control.
Obviously there is not only that. You will also have access to 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 quite well on the Xiaomi box, some of which can be played directly via a controller to be plugged into the USB port of the box.
Less powerful than an Nvidia Shield TV
The Nvidia Shield TV is very powerful thanks to its Tegra X1 chip, but it is also sold 3 to 4 times more expensive. With the Mi Box S, you will still be entitled to good performance with an Amlogic S905X chip which includes 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 above all provides compatibility with many video formats, including 4K at 60 frames per second.
Regarding the design, it is that of its predecessor, still in black tones, but it is clear that small minor changes are present, such as the manufacturer’s logo which is now placed right in the middle. Another notable fact: it is slightly thicker, due to an upwardly revised technical sheet.
