Mi Box S has S905X CPU so it has higher performance than the S905W based X96 Mini.
S905X2 and S905X3 are the newer generation CPU from Amlogic and both are better than S912. I will recommend you to get Tanix original version of TX3 S905X3 based box, from Gearbest. Make sure you buy from Gearbest and not from local online shops like Lazada or Shopee which only sell OEM version.
Price is from Gearbest app. Do not buy the 2GB/16GB model as it has only 2.4GHz WiFi and has no Bluetooth.
4GB/32GB at S$59.62
4FB/64GB at S$62.33
Preloaded boxes like this are in general not recommended. You never know the services will stop. So life time can be six months, one year, two years, depending on your luck. HW spec and quality tend to be pretty low as well so the box may not last long.
If you look at the spec, it is sub S$30 box with the lowest end CPU in the current market and only 1GB RAM. So you are paying more than S$240 for a service with unknown life span. That is too risky.

But if you really want to buy preloaded boxes, then buy Ubox or Evpad since these two have at least a bit of support from the vendor and the user community. EVPad 3S/3 is cheaper and have better spec than the above box.
All in all, if you see a no brand box with higher cost than S$100, be very careful. If the cost is higher than S$200, in general it is a do not buy item.
Not using it and the website seems to be down. However there is a kiosk in Jurong Point JP2 selling the Geekbox only and not other stuff. Business seems to be so so but they are there for sometimes already. There are two more kiosks selling preloaded boxes along with other accessories. The Remax shop also sells Redbean TV boxes.
In general do not buy these preloaded boxes sold in Shopping Centres.
But if you already bought the Geekbox you can still try to use it (even if the bundled iptv and VOD apps no longer work). Just learn to install other apps.
