TONBUX MXQ Android TV Box Review

The Tonbux SK-002 (“TONBUX MXQ”) is a pretty popular Android TV box, used by thousends worldwide. Today I will test it and see if it’s worth the price.

Hardware

TONBUX MXQ features a fairly powerful quad core CPU, as well as a great GPU named Mali-450. This device can easily play and stream Full HD videos and movies. It can also smoothly run most Android apps and games. It’s important to mention that it’s not powerful enough to play 4K or 2K videos. More powerful devices like GooBang Doo M8S Plus (Amazon link) can easily do that. The M8S model also works faster and with less lags.

Tonbux SK-002 has a USB port, as well as a built-in SD memory card slot. You can connect a keyboard to it as well as other USB devices. The memory card slot can be used to view photos taken by your camera. Very useful of course.

Applications and iOS

The device comes with different apps pre-installed. One of them is Kodi. Since the device runs the Android operating system – you can install Android apps on it. Many of them can be downloaded for free from Google’s Play Store. As you probably already know – there are hundreds of thousands of Android apps and games.

Android is a great operating system that most TV boxes use. It is open source, works really fast and offers many options and features. In my opinion – you should not buy TV boxes that are not running it (fortunately, there are not too many of them). Android is also very easy to use, so you really won’t any problem with it. If you never used it before, I recommend just watching few videos on YouTube explaining it and showing all the features and options it offers.

Setup

The setup of the Tonbux SK-002 is very simple. Just connect it to your TV (using the included HDMI cable), then to the power, and log-in to your Google account and your’e done ! There are not too many settings, and you can start using the device in minutes. As I mentioned, it is easy to use, and the UI is great.

Similar Devices

Below you can see the GooBang Doo m8S Plus device. As I mentioned – it is a pretty powerful device. I think it is worth checking out because of the affordable price and great hardware. I persoanlly really like GooBang’s products and I think they offer great value for the money. There are many companies that make TV boxes, not all of them are reliable as GooBang Doo and TONBUX .
