Tanix TX92 Hardware thoughts
My thoughts on the hardware are that are that we have seen so many Amlogic S912 CPU TV boxes, and yet still we have not seen any TV box make any leaps and bounds. Tanix in this installation tried to do something a little different by including 64GB of internal storage, DDR4 RAM. It uses Bluetooth 4.1 and below are list of the hardware specs.

Well I thought that seeing that the box ran on DDR4 RAM and it had so much internal storage, I was expecting to see much higher scores. Well the internal read and write were really good but the other benchmark scores were similar to other boxes in it class.
The Tanix TX92, is one of their best boxes to date. The box is rooted, comes with 3GB DDR4 RAM and 64GB of internal storage with a max extended capacity of up to 128GB. It runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat, streaming is really good, and gameplay is also really good.
I expected the benchmarks to be higher. Some of the 4K video samples had some difficulty playing, and the WiFi reception is not the best, you get better Internet speed via Ethernet connection. The stock remote works well, but the mini touch-pad keyboard had more features.
