If you really liked Xiaomi Mi Box mini concept of an Android TV box in a plug, you may have been greatly disappointed once you found out about the Chinese only user interface, and the complete lack of USB ports or any other external interfaces apart from the HDMI port. There’s now a new device with a similar concept thanks to Sunvell T95P Android TV box in a plug, but with a multilingual firmware, one USB port, and a choice of UK, EU, and US prongs.

Raises a question of why are TV boxes so big, Some of the 2 USB port variety could reduce their width, with saving in packaging and materials maybe?
Had to read the specs to determine that this was in fact an “Android” tv box, vs an “Android TV” box.
I feel your pain 🙂 All those Android “TV” boxes makes it super hard to google anything that runs the true Android TV experience.
I reckon that’s a problem, but Google was late to their own party, as there were already many “Android” TV boxes when Google decided to rename “Google TV” to “Android TV”.
Searching for “Android TV OS” or “Android tv operating systems” or Google’s Android TV” might help finding them. There are just a few though.
