If you search in the “made in China” market for a TV box that makes you happy, this TV box with Android support is an “intelligent” option that we recommend. Remember that the purchase of TV boxes, or devices that turn a TV into “smart”, has had significant sales in recent years, with hundreds of options for every need and pocket. The Tanix TX5 Max TV Box is one of the newest gadgets of this type on the market and is aimed at users who want real performance without spending a fortune. At the moment it is in a discount in Gearbest for a very accessible price.
The Tanix TX5 Max TV Box does not have a design as typical and modern as that of other media players. The most detailed area is the front panel because a feature that stands out is a small LCD screen. Of course, this is not useless, because the important information and the current time can be seen immediately. The wifi antenna is outside, not inside, but it’s pretty good anyway. In terms of size, it is tiny, with dimensions of 10.90 x 10.90 x 2.10 cm and a weight of 180g. It is quite massive, it does not have a fragile casing because the quality of construction is fair and good enough.
Among the included accessories we have an IR remote control. It is a normal piece, fortunately of good quality. All the necessary buttons are in it, and of course, the red button is the on/off switch. It works as it should, with two AAA batteries.
It has powerful hardware so you will not have to worry about using several Android applications at the same time. The Tanix TX5 Max TV Box includes the SoC Amlogic S905X2, a quad-core processor (ARM Cortex-A53) that reaches up to 1.8GHz and integrates a powerful Mali-G31 MP2 GPU. As a novelty in video playback, we have a new VPU with an 8th generation TruLife engine that integrates specific hardware to encode and decode. Also, this TV Box includes 4 GB of LPDDR4 RAM memory and 32 GB of eMMc storage memory that can be extended up to 32 GB with the microSD card reader that includes this equipment on one side. It also can be connected via a USB host with external hard drives compatible with four USB 2.0 ports.
The Tanix TX5 Max TV Box includes, in terms of connectivity, WiFi dual-band 2.4GHz + 5GHz with an external antenna, Ethernet 1000Mbps and Bluetooth 4.2. The connectors that are integrated are two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0, a Gigabit Ethernet connector, SPDIF digital audio port and finally an HDMI 2.1 video output with support for Dynamic HDR and CEC.
