Ugoos AM1 Android TV Box Giveaway

I reviewed Ugoos AM1 TV box based on Amlogic S905 processor a few weeks ago, and while the hardware was rather good, and found the firmware lacking with some bugs such as the remote control and one USB port not port, some instability issues with Google play and Kodi, Bluetooth transfer corruption, etc… The company has now released a firmware update (v 0.0.4) that will fix most of the issues I reported, and also sent me a new remote control as the one I had was an early model, and we’ve decided to giveaway one Ugoos AM1 to one lucky winner, the same way we had done for Ugoos UT4.

Ugoos_AM1_Accessories The Rafflecopter form below has three options, each optional, but if you do all three you’ll get more chances to win. The contest will run for 4 days until March 16 10am (GMT+7), I’ll select the winner randomly through RaffleCopter, and expect an answer within 24 hours or I’ll select another winner. Ugoos will them ship the device to the winner free of charge, and the contest is open worldwide.

The firmware has also been updated to support both types of remote control.

This would be my first Android TV box to give a new life to my Samsung digital (but not smart) TV.

By the way, I like the simplicity of the old remote, but not the big logo. Too bad they couldn’t make this design work and had to change it completely.

I don’t understand.
There are 84 comments (#85 is this one – not part of the competition), but 394 entries – how could this be, if each user could only havey 3 entries (or even if it is 4 – adding another one by just registering to the competition)?!

84 x 3 = 252
84 x 4 = 336
So how come there are 394 entries?!

Or maybe it’s just that people have registered to the competition, but didn’t leave a comment?
