You basically got 2 types of android boxes to choose from.

1st is boxes that run the AndroidTV OS i.e nvidia shield and mibox. Some TV like sony has AndroidTV OS built in. Those you get the best experience with integrated google voice assistant,chromecast,4K netflix and the ability to control with your google home.

The other is boxes from other companies like MXQ, Mecool etc.
Those come with the same android version that comes with your phone/tablet. The benefit being you can install all the same apps like your own phone. The downside is you wont get the TV optimized version of the apps and some will only work best with a touchscreen or mouse & keyboard. Also the launcher will be a custom skin designed by the manufacturer that most likely pales in comparison when compared with AndroidTV OS
