Budget Android TV Box ($37 only)

I just placed an order for this box. Will come back again to review it for others.
MECOOL M8S PRO Plus Android 7.1.1 Amlogic S905X 2GB/16GB WIFI [email protected] VP9 HDR10
I caught this from the kodi forum.
The price I got it for is under $37 free shipping included in the US.

Very high review, and it will work with Netflix too.
My intention is to run the napper app on this box as well as other free live stream app, and then Kodi.

Just sharing this if like me you were looking to get a cheap tvbox for someone else to use.

Edit: Recently this box has got a bad batch of eMMC chip, so do avoid the box for now - unless like me, you just want to use the box for LibreElec +Kodi. In that case, that's fine. The thing with the bad eMMC chip will restrict you to flash a custom ROM, and therefore you will not get to run Android TV ROM.

    i have the 3g/32g version. its very fast, but some of the free apps will not play on this box. hdptv and 飞仔猪TV doesn't work on s912 boxes.
    nevermind, i just notice yours is the s905x and mine is the s912.

    I guest most free apps are only run below Android 5.0........
  • Yup, I got the same box MECOOL 3g/32g version like @tylerlee has, he's right it's not compatible with many apps like hdptv and 飞仔猪TV and many others because it's Android 7.1.1. And @cheuk5 is right about it most free apps are only run below Android 5.0, and 4.4 is the best for it.
  • When I get mine, I will tell you if those app works, I think they should.
    Anyway this box came highly recommended form the guys at Kodi forum and sounds like they know what they're talking about.
    Plus 3g/32g I think that's overkill for streaming. And hey, the point I was searching for a cheap box. $37 is a steal. By the way, this one I got would cost about $50 on Amazon (us) but I got $37 from geekbuying.com. (again the kodi guys shared where to get it)
  • Btw, the 3g/32g sells at $65 at this website too.

    Hey I paid $80????

    Check it out man. geekbuying.com

    i got it for $60 after coupon..when ebay had the $15 off $75 coupon. they usually have it once a month or ebay bucks 8 or 10% cash back almost every week.
  • Great. Anyway hope it helps. that $37 2g/16g cheap box, to work with the many free Apps on Live TV and Kodi. If you want to prepare for the future get that $65 3g/32g I guess.
  • I got a few X2 Beelink box months ago, I paid $26 for it, I love these cheap box.
  • Nice.
    I forgot to mention this Mecool box works with Netflix too. not sure if X2 Beelink does.
    But it could be momentarily..
    i have netflix acc as well so this box seem to be good, but it hasnt arrive y et. looking to see its performance with kodi as well since it got Dual boot LibreELEC Kodi Krypton (another plus)

    Yes The X2 Beelink has Netflix access but I never use it 'cause I have "Movie HD" app, the movies is much more latest and is free. For mecool's Kodi named "TV Center
    " they put too many addons on it that I don't need, I deleted and installed
    a 17.4 on it.

    can you share the hd movie app? Thanks!

    it doesn't work on tvpad4, works on all other android boxes.
    some boxes might get kick out on first oppening, click back in the second time should work.
    tested on tvpad4. mxq, mx3, m8sii, ts3, a95x, m8s pro, minix u1, ubox3, ubox4, nvidia shield...

    Here's the MovieHD app, when open you'll need to download a VPlayer from Playstore to play.

  • if u are trying to use it on tvpad4, it won't work. i tested every version, the only version that works on android box is the one i posted. previous version 1.7.4 - 1.7.6 all had different problems. mine is modified after cheuk5's version. version 1.7.6 has no data error. they had to use version 1.7.5 and re-modified to fix the problem. not many people have it.
