In today's review we talk about the Alfawise H96 Pro + TV Box, an Android TV Box that falls within the group of "safe bets" as far as TV Boxes are concerned. Why? Mainly thanks to hardware that makes the most of the possibilities of this type of multimedia device.
Alfawise H96 Pro + TV Box in analysis, one of the best TV Boxes to watch Netflix and KODI from the sofa at home
I recently upgraded my media center with a MECOOL BB2 PRO, an Android TV Box with the same features and hardware as this Alfawise H96 Pro +, and without a doubt it has been a “upgradePretty amazing. If today someone asks me for advice about TV Boxes, I would recommend any of these 2 boxes without hesitation -Ah! And also the Xiaomi Mi TV Box, another little gem.
Design and finish
The good thing about TV Boxes is that they are really compact devices. The Alfawise H96 Pro + TV Box It has dimensions of 10.70 x 10.70 x 2.00 cm and a weight of 250gr. The ideal size to go completely unnoticed at the foot of the TV.
A sober and elegant design for a box that has 2 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI 2.0 port, Ethernet, AV and SD card reader.
The TV Box also includes a remote control, although as always, if you want a much more enriching experience, I would recommend you get hold of a good wireless keyboard or air mouse. Above all, to browse YouTube, Spotify or Netflix. The difference is abysmal.
Power and performance
The Alfawise H96 Pro + TV Box equip a processor Amlogic S912 Octa Core 2.0GHz, 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. All with Android 7.1, WiFi ac dual band connectivity (2.4G / 5G) and Bluetooth 4.1.
Thanks to a chip like the Amlogic S912, the H96 Pro + is capable of smoothly playing 4K content, with H.265 hardware decoder and HDR. Supports Airplay, Miracast and DLNA. If we have a good TV and we want to see content in high definition, here we have a whole vein to exploit.
How does it work with apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO etc.?
Amazon prime and HBO I have not tested them, but seeing how it is able to reproduce the contents of Netflix, Spotify and Youtube I understand that I should not have a major problem. The difference between a lower quality TV Box and one with Amlogic S912 and 3GB of RAM, where it really shows is in this type of task.
Although the Alfawise H96 Pro + It already has many of these video on demand apps pre-installed, it is important to remember that there are many apps in the Play Store that have a specific version for Android TV Box. If we are going to install a new app, let's see first if it has a version for TV Box. Navigation improves considerably!
For the rest, we have a TV Box with which we can use multimedia apps such as KODI or install emulators, something that works really well on TV Boxes with 3GB of RAM and a pretty decent processor like the one this H96 Pro + wears.
Price and availability
The Alfawise H96 Pro + It has a price of 61.35 euros, about $ 73.99 to change, on GearBest.
One detail to keep in mind is that currently this TV Box is cheaper on the Spanish store website, € 56.37 specifically, so if we are Spanish users we can buy it cheaper and also receive it in a shorter time (at least until they decide to raise it in price). Not bad.
In general, we are facing a TV Box of excellent value for money, with great potential to play streaming content, videos and movies in 4K. All this with a good number of USB ports, excellent connectivity (WiFi / Bluetooth / Ethernet) and above-average performance.
