Sunvell T95 Max Allwinner H6 TV Box Review
The Sunvell T95 Max Allwinner H6 Android 9 Pie TV box is one of the early TV boxes to launch on the new Android 9 Pie operating system. At first glance the specs looked great, and givgen the track record of the Alwinner H6 CPU, I was eager to see if this would rival the Amlogic s905X2 boxes. So in this review you will see what my findings were and my overall thoughts on this TV box.

The hardware specs though it’s not bad, most of the informed users of TV boxes will have some issues with the specs. Mainly the single band WiFi and the no Bluetooth support. The CPU clock speed at 1.4GHz is also is of some concern.

Operating System and UI 9 Pie
Well the selling point of this box is supposed to be the new Android 9 Pie operating system. The T95 Max has adopted the new Android 9 Pie operating which is somewhat better than the the previous version. The Launcher itself has not changed for Sunvell. The launcher is the same Sunvell launcher and it does not come with a navigation bar or notifications bar. Alternative launchers work on this box but not all of them. The box is rooted, but it does not have Google Widevine 1 for Netflix to play in 4K and HD quality. Miracast and Airplay works well on this box. 4K videos play on this box, though some of them experienced some playback issues. It can play Android games, but only games that support Open GL ES 3.1 and under so there’s some restriction there. I installed a couple gamepad key-mapping apps and could not get them to work on the now Android 9. Kodi and movie streaming APKs work to stream movies fine on this box.

The Sunvell T95 Max in my opinion is not the TV box to launch Android 9 Pie on. You see when you present a new operating like Android 9, you raise the expectations of customers and enthusiast who are expecting better interface, more features, and better performance. So the hardware must also be able to deliver on this expectation, and this is not the case with this box.
