The new Amlogic S905X runs Android 6.0 and that makes the Mini M8S 2 TV the first Chinese Android TV Box with Android 6.0
Not much has changed since the previous version, we still have 2GB of Ram and 8GB of internal storage.
The box looks identical with the older one and you wouldn’t know the difference between them just by looking at them.
Unfortunately, we still can’t install apps on the SD card and many of us were hoping that Android 6.0 would let us do that on these TV boxes.
You can find this box at multiple retailers and ive listed a few below:

The box is using the same launcher as the previous model and it isn’t the best looking launcher put there.
Most video formats do very good on this box except for one 4K file at 59fps. However, this probably has to do with the software optimization on the box because all the Tv boxes with the Amlogic S905 can play this file without any issues.
Overall this is a very decent TV Box that can only get better with a couple of software optimizations.
