Already very affordable compared to other Android TV Boxes on the market, the Xiaomi Mi Box S is currently shown at an even lower price since it is at 44.99 euros on Cdiscount, compared to the usual 69.99 euros.
The market for boxes under Android TV may be dominated by solutions such as the Nvidia Shield TV, but there are still other references no less efficient, and that even show lower prices. For example, we can bet on the Xiaomi Mi Box S, which not only offers 4K/HDR compatibility, but also a really smooth user experience. And all this for a price that will weigh much less on your budget since it is currently available for less than 45 euros.

A discreet but powerful case.
To design its Mi Box S, Xiaomi avoided frills and decided to offer instead a square black case with rounded shapes; a design that has above all the advantage of blending in with all the decorations. The box is therefore discreet, placed in a TV cabinet. But it is more what is contained in its entrails that will interest us here. In fact, Mi Box S incorporates an Amlogic S905X chip that includes a 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex-A53 processor and a 750 MHz Mali 450 graphics chip, all complemented by 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage.
With such a configuration, this multimedia box is capable of running some 3D games present in the Play Store, but it will not be where it gets the most points. Above all, it will be able to guarantee support for 4K at 60 frames per second, as well as HDR10 to allow you to watch a large amount of content with the best possible image quality.
The seamless experience enabled by Android TV
Xiaomi’s Mi Box S also has another important asset: Android TV. This operating system is simply one of the best existing solutions. Smooth and intuitive experience guaranteed. In fact, the flagship applications will be present in the Play Store, and the operating system will even be able to offer you recommendations on the home page. There will also be the Google Assistant (there will be a button on the remote control to be able to request it easily), as well as the Chromecast function to be able to broadcast content from a smartphone or tablet.
Finally, on the connection side, the Mi Box S has an Ethernet port and a USB port, handy for connecting a controller, for example.
