Zidoo X7 Review and Benchmarks

Zidoo X7 Android 7 TV Box

The Zidoo X7 Android 7.1 TV box is a nice TV box for streaming free movies and TV shows. It can play 4K videos at 60fps, and can play minor Android games. In this review, I’ll demonstrate the box’s 4K video playback capabilities and we get to see its hardware and other features.

Zidoo X7 Hardware

We are starting to see more and more Rockchip TV boxes and the Zidoo X7 has joined the race sporting the Rockchip RK3328 quad core ARM Cortex A53 CPU running up 1.5GHz. It comes with 2GB or RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. The internal storage is a bit low but you have convertible storageup to 64GB. The X7 3D graphics and 4K display is powered by the Mali 450MP GPU which is not a high-end gaming GPU but is well suited for streaming movies and TV shows and for 4K video playback. It comes with dual band WiFI support with Bluetooth 4.1.

X7 New ZIUI on Android 7.1

Zidoo has introduced a new ZIUI user interface. The interface is nice and responsive, but can be a bit problematic to use with a mouse as the interface is optimized to work better with the stock remote that comes with the box. The ZIUI comes with a navigation bar at the bottom for easy navigation using a mouse or mini touch-pad keyboard. The X7 runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat with a custom ZDMC Kodi 16 build optimized to work with the new ZIUI. However, ZDMC comes blank and all addons will have to be done manually. ZIUI has a nice settings area for making changes to the box’s settings like Digital audio output, and screen resolution. The Zidoo X7 has digital audio passthrough via HDMI and SPDIF outputs.

X7 Gaming

The X7 is not a big gamer, though it can play some minor games, big game tickets will not work on this box due to the lower end GPU used in this box.

Conclusion

So in final analysis the Zidoo X7 is a good budget TV box for streaming movies and TV shows. It is well built, feels strong in your hands and has good support by the Zidoo support team. My only downside is that it could have been made with more internal storage, the GPU could have been a later model, and the box should be rooted.
