Acemax MXQ S10X Cube Review

Advertisement

So we are in the era of new TV boxes running on high-end hardware and they are getting more expensive as new models release every month. Acemax decided to release a budget TV box called the Acemax MXQ S10X Cube that presents the regular function of a TV box with a twist. They have included two built-in microphones and a built-in speaker, it is running on Android TV OS with Google assistant and Far-Field voice commands that can be used to control other smart devices. In this review I will see how these new features can apply to the average TV box user, and if this box is worth the purchase.

Conclusion

The Acemax version of the MXQ S10X cube, in my opinion, did not meet my expectation. After testing this box it turns out that this box is a regular S905X TV box from 2018 running on outdated hardware with a few features that probably got off to a late start. It will be overshadowed by the new line of TV box hardware and with the benchmark scores it produces will not the first pick of a potential TV box buyer. I still cannot place how the built-in speaker applies, because even though someone is looking to use this feature without a screen then what’s the sense. Unless you are connecting it to a PC monitor without a built-in speaker.
