Android TV Box Chart for reference, ignore the ranking. For example RK3399 based boxes have good raw performance but may not offer better user experiences than lower performance box in terms of streaming.

2019 version: S905X2 based box are popular now. Lower end boxes like those based on Amlogic S905W are out. And even RK3328 based boxes are out since S905X2 boxes are simply more powerful at the same price point. S912 based boxes are still there like the popular Minix Neo U9+.

Nvidia Shield TV box is still No 1. Mi Box S, Amazon Fire TV stick 4k and Fire TV Cube are still in the chart despite lower raw performance data but they are of higher hardware and software build quality than generic brand boxes. For example they offer Netflix 4k support and none of the generic boxes can offer that capability.

So new users are still better to buy TV boxes like Nvidia Shield TV and Mi Box S which runs official Google certified Android TV OS and has built-in YouTube 4k, Netflix 4k and Chromecast 4k support.

2018 version is still of good reference value since 2019 version does not contain lower end boxes. But please ignore the ranking totally.
