4. Graphical User Interface
The player's GUI is different from what we have experienced with other Android players, and it is outlined in the following video.
The main screen is well designed and provides easy access to the main areas of the player. The player is highly based on KODI, but you also get YoutubeHD, NetFlix and Google Play apps:
More tabs are linking to pre-installed apps, Such as Skype, Twitter and more. You can also add shortcuts to more apps.
The Online section you see below includes even more apps - Pandora, Plex etc
The MoviePlayer, Music, Gallery, Miracast and Root Browser are found at the Local Tab.
Speaking of root, the device seems to have root access as root checker indicated. However there is no SuperSU user app installed so you'll probably not have full root access to the box.
Below are all the installed apps, as found under the Apps tab
The default FileBrowser is typical and offers limited functions, so you may need to get the ES File Explorer in order to have more control over the network devices.
SystemInfo will show a summary of the device specifications and firmware:
The player's settings section look familiar and almost the same with what we have experienced with other Amlogic S905 devices:
Over the Display->Screen Resolution section, you can set the HDMI resolution:
We selected 4K-24HZ , since our A/V receiver won't support 4K @ 60Hz. That gives the GUI a more sluggish performance, so you'd better connect the device at full 4K @ 60Hz:
The HDR option (Auto/On/Off) is located under the Display tab:
The Digital sound section is where you should choose the HDMI Passthrough function:
At the Playback settings you can turn the HDMI Self-adaption->On:
The device comes with 16GB memory, and just 1.31GB were used:
Android 6.0.1 offers great memory management so only 649MB are occupied, at least after the first boot:
