Now it’s time for new TV Box from BeeLink GT1.

With opening the box, I see the the premium feel of this device is outstanding and on a level above any other Android TV box.
The box is sleek black with the silver lettering. The design is very modern and luxury.

Language: Multi -language
Power Supply – 5V/2A

What’s in the box:
– TV Box
– HDMI cable
– 2A power adapter
– remote which carries 2xAAA batteries (batteries not included).

The top of the Box has beelink logo with a glossy finish covered by protective film.
On the left side of the box is a 1xUSB port and a microSD card slot.

The back houses the main ports: Power, 1xUSB, HDMI, GB Ethernet and SPDIF.

Beelink states the microSD slot supports up to 32GB cards but I was able to read/write to my 64GB Samsung card with no problems.

As you can see from the info, the box runs:
Android Version: 6.0.1
Security Patch Level: June 1 2016
Build #: GT1_102M0

And includes almost all languages (Italian too).

When powering the box a soft LED lights on the front.
Booting time is very fast about – 20sec only!

The beelink launcher I find is one of the best Android TVBox launchers!

It’s simple, with big nice icons and you can access them easily with the remote or a mouse.

Device comes with build-in Bluetooth so pairing headphones or other devices is very easy.

There is no bloatware installed on this box. Only what you need:
Fishing Joy,
Media Center,
Play Store,

10GB of all 16GB is available to the user to install apps or store your media files.
I installed:
MXPlayer – probably the best media player which supports almost all media formats and codecs.
CrossyRoad – game response is better than expected even with the slow remote
Youtube for AndroidTV.
Antutu Benchmark
Geekbench 4

The box supports both 2.4 and 5GHz networks. The signal is very strong.
Of course using 5GHz is recommended

Lets see ho Benchmarks performs:

Antutu scored – 40k

Geekbench 4 score – 526 Single-Core / 2391 Multi-Core

As you can see the results are pretty impressive

Video Playback:
Majority of videos play smooth with no issues including 4K.
Streaming via Kodi was smooth. Playback from attached USB drives and the microSD card was smooth and fast too.
Pausing and seeking provided no issues.

Overall experience was really impressive.

The box is really fast and responsive as some flagship smartphones.
I even installed some games to test and they ran awesome!
I installed even my favorite game N.O.V.A. 3.
Unfortunately it wasn’t payable with mouse
Maybe some game-pad will help

So, do i recommend this TV Box? – Yes and yes!
It’s really worth it.
And now the the coupon discount:


Today I checked for updates and new one appeared:

After update I see improvement of RAM management!
