The Tanix TX28’s specifications are decent, featuring an impressive 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 32GB of onboard storage (which can be expanded with micro SD cards), dual band wifi, 100M ethernet and Bluetooth 4.1. It also runs Android 7.1 Nougat.
In terms of ports, you get a single USB 3.0 port on the side of the unit, as well as two additional USB 2.0 ports at the rear for connecting accessories like an air mouse.
There’s also a LED display on the front for displaying the time (and possibly more, though the listing isn’t clear on this).
The quadcore Rockchip RK3288 should offer plenty of performance for media playback and web browsing (as we discovered during our comprehensive chipset analysis) making this box suitable for basic Kodi use or browsing the web.
Gamers should probably stick to the NVIDIA Shield TV however, with the RK3328’s Mali-450 MP2 is only really suitable for 2D titles.
The 4GB of RAM offers plenty of flexibility for multitasking and 32GB is plenty for storage for apps given this device’s media streaming focus.
Whether you wan playing your favorite game, rocking to your favorite tunes, or just surfing, it provides stable power at all times. What’s more, the Tanix TX28 offers almost unlimited expansion capabilities: you can install as many add-ons or apps as you want. This includes Skype chatting, Picasa, YouTube, and thousands more.
Those wanting to buy the Tanix TX28 can save 7% of the RRP for a strictly limited time. Plus, if you order it during the promotional period, you’ll get the Alfawise DY–1 TV Box Wall Mounting kit free which is pretty handy for mounting your Android TV box out of sight.
