Review: Element Ti4 Quad Core Android TV Streaming Media Box

The Element Android TV Media Box is the first box we tested that had zero setup required after we connected it to our TV and plugged it in. The Element Android TV box comes preloaded with apps like Netflix and a wide range of add-ons for Kodi/XBMC. When we plugged it into the TV the first time it just worked. If you need a easy to setup Android TV Box, the Element is one you need to look into.

Pros:

  • Very powerful for the price
  • Never crashed or hung up in our testing
  • XBMC/Kodi pre-installed and setup
  • No software setup required
  • Very smooth when playing 1080p
  • Remote controls can turn the TV on and off

Cons:

  • The stock Android TV interface is not pleasing to the eye

Overall I was very impressed with the Element Android TV Media Box. It was smooth and easy to use right out of the box. The remote that came with it is one of the nicest remotes to come with a Android TV box. The remote is responsive without being overly touchy and it allows you to power your TV on and off.

The Element supports 4K/1080P/720P resolutions and all play smoothly. The quad core Amlogic S812 processor allowed for smooth video streaming and playback of local content. The dual channel 2.4GHz/5.0GHz WIFI allowed for smooth streaming over WIFI. You can also connect your Element to the internet with a Ethernet cable.

Summary:
