I’ve already written articles such as the “Best Android TV boxes in 2018” to help people select a TV box that matches their requirements, but today it will be a little different.
GearBest provides a speadsheet with discount and coupons to bloggers and YouTube reviewers (
sadly not shareable link here), and this time I noticed they also list the top 10 best sellers in the TV box category.
Those may not necessarily the best TV boxes, but at least many other people bought them, and you may get unofficial support via communities such as Freaktab or LibreELEC.
Withoutany further delay, here’s the list in no particular order and with prices for reference only as listed in the spreadsheet:

- W95 TV Box (2GB) (Buy Link) – Amlogic S905W, 2GB RAM, 16GB flash, Android 7.1 – $29.99

Just a few comments. First, it’s clearly Amlogic territory, and Rockchip based TV boxes did not make it to the list. Some models appears to be listed twice, but they have different memory or/and storage. Most models run Android 7.1 OS, but a few do run unofficial or official Android TV OS. I may update the list in a few months or next year as it evolves.
