1. Features and specifications
Today we have in our hands the The Eachlink X3 Mini, an entry-level and affordable smart box designed for entertainment. The device is powered by an AmLogic S905X3 chipset and runs in Android 9.0. It uses 4GB of memory and a 32GB eMMC can be used for installing apps and games. In terms of connectivity, you will have 2.4/5G Wifi along with 100Mbit LAN and Bluetooth.
Priced at just €35, the device sounds like a decent entertainment solution, as long as its performance and compatibility with video and audio files prove to be good. On the other hand, there are many other media players out there available at the €35-40 price range, based on the same S905X3chip, with some of them to offer on paper even better specs and possibly firmware supports.
