Zidoo X5 is Yet Another Amlogic S905 Android Media Player

Zidoo has also joined the fray of companies releasing Amlogic S905 based TV boxes, and they’ve decided to go low end with 1GB RAM, 8 GB internal storage, Fast Ethernet, and 2.4 GHz WiFi.
Zidoo X5 specifications:

  • SoC –  Amlogic S905 quad core ARM Cortex-A53 @ up to 2.0GHz with penta-core Mali-450MP GPU
  • System Memory – 1GB DDR3
  • Storage – 8GB eMMC + micro SD slot
  • Video Output – HDMI 2.0 up to 4K @ 60Hz with CEC support, and 3.5 mm AV jack
  • Audio – HDMI, AV, optical S/PDIF
  • Connectivity – Fast Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0
  • USB – 2x USB 2.0 host ports
  • Misc – IR receiver
  • Power Supply –  5V/2A
  • Dimensions & Weight – N/A (plastic case)
The device runs Android 5.1. Based on my last two reviews about their products, Zidoo has an history of releasing products a little too early, not unlike most of their competitors, but at least they are also committed to provide regular firmware updates, which they’ve done in the past, and they also released patchsets for their Kodi’s improvements for Rockchip and Allwinner SoCs.

Zidoo_X5_ConnectorsZidoo X5 has not been officially released yet, and pricing has not been disclosed, but the company is taking orders from distributors and resellers for quantities as well as 20 pieces.

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever used a device that sluggish…
    And they must never have used it at 4K output, as the pointer is barely visible…
