Operating system and UI
The Beelink A1 runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat operating system. Out of the box, the Beelink A1 comes missing a few key features. There is no nav bar and status bar, and the box is not rooted. However. Beelink has provided at least 4 firmware updates with the click of a button in the more settings area under the about tab. Once these updates are complete, you will now have a nav bar and status bar, and the box now has root access. The box does not come with any movie streaming apps or social media apps, you have to install these apps from the google play store.

The Beelink A1 is not a super high-end TV box, its got some OK hardware specs allowing it the stream online movies and TV shows quite well, and it ran some 4K video samples pretty OK. It’s not a gamer so don’t expect any great gaming performance. It manages to contain overheating to a certain extent and you get regular updates from the developer with the click of a button.
