Mi Box S alternative if you do not need Netflix HD (for example you have Samsung and LG Smart TV).

Mecool KM9 Pro S905X2 4GB/32GB box is Google certified just like the older KM8, not Netflix certified though. It does support YouTube 4K, has built-in Chromecast and Google Assistant.

Review should be similar to Mecool KM9 but with official Google certification for KM9 Pro.

Price info is for reference only.
Taobao price is about RMB385 or S$77 now.
Lazada price is now on the high side at S$98.
Gearbest price is US$70 matching Lazada price.

Previously KM8 S905X 2GB/16GB is also Google certified but the review is not that good.

In the end Mi Box S is still better with Netflix certification to run Netflix 4K. But if you do not need Netflix, you may want to consider Mecool KM9 because of the better HW specifications.
