We strongly suggest going with a quality brand when it comes to Android TV boxes for Kodi, Streaming Apps or Cord-Cutting.
With the number of quality products from reliable brands available, buying some obscure TV box from a “preloaded box seller” would definitely be a big mistake.
We don’t take recommending hardware devices lightly. The devices below are all very reliable, high performing and support the latest functionality.
Each of these devices also support Kodi, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other streaming apps. Installing any of these apps, and others, can be done without needing a computer.
#1 NVIDIA Shield TV
If you want the best of the best, and don’t have any budgetary restrictions, this is the Android TV device for you. It’s the real deal, and Kodi can be installed at the click of a button, literally. Remote control features voice search.
#2 Amazon Fire TV Cube
This is one awesome device, it runs really smooth. However, installing Kodi will be slightly more complicated than on the previous devices, since there’s no Google Play Store app. Remote control features voice search.
#3 Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K
If you’re on a tight budget, but still want a dedicated Kodi device, the Amazon Fire TV Stick is your best bet. Since there’s no Google Play Store app, installing Kodi will be slightly more complicated.
#4 Xiaomi Mi Box 4K
Don’t let the name fool you, Xiaomi is the world’s fourth largest mobile phone manufacturer, and they’re known as the Chinese Apple. This device offers a huge punch, at a super attractive price tag. Remote control features voice search.
#5 MINIX Neo U9-H
Another good option, this device was actually designed with Kodi in mind. Although we generally tend to gravitate towards bigger, more established electronics companies, we’ll give this spot to the little guy.
We hope that this list will help you make an informed purchase. These are all excellent performing devices, so the deciding factors for most people will likely be price and geographical availability.
