Review: XiaoMi MIUI TV Box


The XiaoMi MIUI TV Box is a very small, but powerful media box that is built off of Android with a heavily skinned beautiful user interface. The box sits in the palm of your hand with an innovative design format that puts the whole player into the power plug that goes into your wall.

  • Simple To Set Up


  • No English Option
  • No USB Port

Main Features:

In short it is a very nice Android box, but the lack of English makes it hard for me to give it a full review.

    What a lame-ass “review”.
    Shame you didn’t expend a bit more initiative so you could figure out the ins and outs of this nifty little box.

      Well I don’t speak Chinese and was unable to find a way to switch it to English. Hard to review something when you can’t read it. From my research it appears that there is no way to switch it to English. So if you know how to switch it to English please let me know but there are a lot of great “nifty little box”es out there that support English.

      If you had read the whole review you would have found this “In short it is a very nice Android box, but the lack of English makes it hard for me to give it a full review.”
