XBMC review

Introduction
XBMC is a program that turns your android mini pc into a powerful multimedia center. It is almost funny when my friends see what XBMC can do and when I showed them that it all works with the device slightly larger than a USB stick. XBMC supports most common audio, video, and image formats, playlists, audio visualizations, slideshows, weather forecasts reporting, and third-party plugins. XBMC-Android

But first thing first. “XBMC” really sounds like someone press the keyboard with his elbow but XBMC is short for “Xbox Media Center” because it was initially intended for the Xbox game console. I must also mention that because of the fact that it’s open source media player it really affected and speed up its development...

New android stick and android box devices

The new year has started and brought some new things in the Android Mini PC world . I decided to write an article in which I describe the newer devices for your TV. You may have already noticed that the new trend in high-end smartphones are processors with 4 cores, and now rare smartphones have 2 gb of ram. This is precisely what triggered me to look for a mini PC with Android 4 core processor and 2 GB of RAM because whatever you buy and does not meet these two criterias, you bought an outdated device. Applications for the Android platform have become more demanding and require more raw processing power.
After a year of using the MK808 I noticed one flaw. It is a bad production of full HD live stream videos through WiFi connection. Full HD video is played well only over a LAN cable...

MK808 First Impressions

01MK808, Mini Android PC, PC on a stick, wonder of technology, a device that has inspired the creation of this site. I got the idea for SmartAndrodTV.com soon as I saw this product on the web. Mini Android PC is a natural evolution of android devices. Firstly, Android has swept the mobile phones, tablets, some notebook and now it’s moved on to television. I was so fascinated that I immediately ordered one MK808. Although I live in Europe and I waited rather impatiently, my MK808 arrived after 13 days. I was surprised because for some online orders I have waited up to a month. Today is exactly twentieth day that my MK808 arrived and I think this was enough for a fair testing.

The packaging of the MK808 Mini Android PC is quite decent and elegant...

Mouse and Keyboard Combo

These are the first accessories that I am currently using for my MK808. As a matter of fact, I am using the first thing I came across. It is Logitech Wireless Mouse M525 – Black/Grey and the Logitech Wireless Keyboard K360.

When I connected the mouse, I have to say that it worked without any error; it really was interesting using Android with mouse. Immediately I found out that the wheel and the secondary key have a purpose as well.

Wheel can be used for scrolling, as in Windows (but not in all applications). In Google Chrome works as scrolling, while in Mozilla Firefox has no function. When using the wheel for Android you can scroll for home screens. Regardless of which application you are using in Android, the secondary key on Logitech Wireless Mo...
