Undecided between evpad plus or unblock tech box

Need something that can watch malaysia live tv channels too

Anty advise
Was using ubox previously. Died after 1 year 10 mth usage.
Now using evpad. Loading seems to be faster & less buffering.

Evpad would be a better choice.

Different box have different processor, ram, rom. Yes you can get a sub $50 box but at the cost of the performance. More worst, kena carrot chopped if a sub $50 box worth sold to you at inflated prices. There are many out there waiting to be chopped if nvr do homework.
Get a box that tends to your needs and not overkill. Nvidia shield Pro is indeed a top choice for anyone that knows what it can do and meets their requirements. If you buy it just to watch iptv, it's better off buying a TV stick instead. Small and save space.

Unblock no point. Overpriced.

depends on your usage.

if you are just running iptv, and movies apps, any 2GB RAM S905x boxes will run as well.

if you are running games, then you need more power, then it is useful to get more power chips and bigger RAM, suggest S905X3 chip with 4GB RAM.

Agree.

S922X (expensive)
S905X3
S905X2
S905X (Xiaomi MI BOX-S 2/8GB)

I'm not a very techy person, but for an average user like me, I think it's pretty good! I just watch a lot of movies hahaha

Yes that is true. If you are interested in preloaded boxes, then EVpad and UBox are better choices.

If you want to spend time on installing apps then there are other choices like Mi Box S or generic boxes based on S905X2/S905X3, they are usually below S$100.
Hi Xiaofan, I recently bought a S905X3 box 4/32GB and it runs very cool and fast.

I have good news. Remember the TX5 Max 4/32GB S905X2 I bought earlier and it died? I managed to flash it back to life!

I know why it didn't work previously. That's because when I used Amlogic Burning Tool, I stopped when there is an error while flashing. This time, when there's an error, I just pull the male to male cable out and push it back in again. After about 5 times (in and out), the box was flashed successfully.

Hope you don't mind sharing where did you bought the S905X3 box 4/32gb from? And the price as well?

Do you have to side load certain apps for this android box? Some apps may not be available on the Play Store for some boxes.

Great. Now you have two good working boxes. Thanks for the updates.

In addition, the S905X3 is much more straight forward to flash.

Amlogic is pretty easy but how about your experience with other CPUs? Easy to flash too?
