Xiaomi has decided to update its Android TV kit. The new variant “Xiaomi Mi Box S with 4K HDR Android TV” on the popular TV box offers offline and online viewing of multimedia content in 4K and HDR high resolution. Plus, Chromecast with Google TV is the most radical update we’ve seen in the Chromecast series. This puts it on par with competing features while introducing a completely new user interface. In this article, we will take a look at what both devices have to offer and which one you should choose.
Xiaomi Mi Box S with 4K HDR Android TV Box comes in Black color and is made of PC + ABS material, so it is strong and ready to use in any usage. It has a slightly spherical body that is less than four inches wide and less than four inches deep and only about three-quarters of an inch tall, making it easy to place in any entertainment center. Thanks to the Bluetooth remote control that lets you put the Xiaomi TV box anywhere and control it stress-free. It measures 3.75 x 3.75 x 0.66 inches and weighs 300 grams.
For the past three years, Google has kept the hockey puck format for its Chromecast devices and remade it for the Chromecast with Google TV. The latter’s design is slightly longer than the previous, but overall it is quite similar to its predecessor. The Chromecast itself is made of brushed plastic and connects to your TV with an attached HDMI cable. The USB-C port on the back connects to the attached power cable, which is then plugged into the power adapter providing power.
The Xiaomi Mi Box S with 4K HDR Android TV Box is powered by a Cortex A53 quad-core processor. The chipset is fast and stable, which can give you fast feedback and a smooth response. This processor is combined with the Power Mali-450 graphics processor which offers high-resolution photos and videos. It has 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, giving you more space to download your favorite apps and caches, browse websites, play games, launch apps and watch movies more smoothly. The TV box has an internal cooling system in the digital player which enhances the performance of the box.
The new model is equipped with a quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 8GB ROM memory, Bluetooth version 4.2, HDMI 2.0A port, headphone jack and USB 2.0 port.
The Chromecast with GoogleTV has a responsive quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and 8GB storage, but the system uses about 3.4GB of that, leaving only 4.4GB for app storage.
One detail worth knowing about audio is that Chromecast supports Dolby Atmos sound while Atmos doesn’t decode and Netflix requires it for surround sound.
It comes with a voice remote for the Google Chromecast first, putting the device on par with the competition for the same price. It can be configured to control TV power and volume, so you only need one remote control. You can use Bluetooth technology to pair headphones or a wireless game controller (not included) with your Chromecast with Google TV for private listening, but the remote won’t control the headphone volume.
Selecting one from these two gadgets is a daunting task due to the fact that both performs outstandingly. Their design is classy and they are very portable, also they are affordable and available for purchase on Banggood.
