Xiaomi Mi Box S review: This isn't doing Android TV justice


Xiaomi's Mi Box S is a cheap 4K HDR Android TV box that doesn't get with the times.

The cheapest Android TV box yet ; Powerful voice controls ; Full-sized USB port for hard drives or external controllers

Xiaomi Mi Box S Review: Decent Price, Mediocre Performance


I couldn't find it in my heart to like the Mi Box S very much. The picture quality is well below what I expected from a 4K HDR streaming device, the volume issues make streaming feel like a chore, and all of the little frustrations added up over time.

Inexpensive ; USB storage ; Google Assistant

Substandard picture and sound ; Lackluster remote ; Resolution and frame-rate issues

There's no compelling reason to get a Xiaomi Mi Box S, due to troublesome issues with its picture quality, sound levels and interface.

Recensione Xiaomi Mi Box S: limitarsi all'indispensabile


Mi Box S è l'ultima versione del riproduttore multimediale di Xiaomi. Ha pressappoco lo stesso hardware del vecchio Mi Box 3, con qualche correzione ai componenti e con una distribuzione internazionale. Mentre scrivo, costa circa 80 euro su Amazon Italia.
