Eachlink H6 Mini TV Box Review
Finally here a box that’s worth barging about. Why is that? Because the Eachlink H6 mini 6K Android TV box is a winner. We haven’t seen the Allwinner H6 CPU since the Zidoo H6 and the Beelink GS1, and we all saw how those boxes performed. The Eachlink H6 mini is no different. This mini TV box puts all those Rockchip and Amlogic TV boxes to rest. The performance of the Allwinner CPU and Mali GPU will blow you away. However, its not all bells and whistles, it too does have a few challenges here and there, but it’s nothing compared to what this this box can do.
The Eachlink H6 Mini runs on the powerful and efficient Allwinner H6 quad core processor, running up to 1.8GHz. The CPU is a 64bit processor, but in this box it’s configured to run in 32bit mode. Take note of the 1.8GHz CPU clock speed which is faster than 90% of TV boxes in the market. Its display, is powered by ARM Mali T720 dual core GPU running up to 650MHz and with Open GL ES 3.1. It comes with 3GB of DDR3 RAm and 32G of internal storage. The has single band 2.4GHz WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1.

OS and UI
The Eachlink H6 mini runs on Android 7.0 operating system. The box is not tooted, and the launcher is a new kind of launcher that automatically adds shortcuts to the launcher. The DRM information shows that the H6 mini only has Google Widevine L3 support and not HDCP encryption. The user interface is open and you can uninstall and install any app via the Google play store or via APK download.
Movie and TV shows Streaming
The Eachlink H6 mini and play Netflix in 720p quality and streaming movies and TV shows in HD and 4K quality. IPTV services also work, for today’s review I am featuring an IPTV service called Speed IPTV. It shows all its channels in HD quality, with over 4000 channels worldwide, with about 114 HD channels in the US alone.
4K Video Playback
This is where the Eachlink H6 mini really stood out from among the rest. The H6 can play 4K at 60fps, HDR 10bit, HEVC H.265 with ease. I played the most difficult 4K videos from list and all ran perfectly.
- Antutu: 53880
- Geekbench4: 636 Single core 1673 Multi core
- Ice Storm Extreme: 4325
- RAM Copy: 2736
- ROM Speed: 120Mb/s read
- WiFi: 2.4GHz average speed
Again the Eachlink H6 mini really topped t off with an outstanding 3D graphics gaming experience. You have to remove the bottom and modify it with some larger holes and apply a cooling fan to allow games to run up to their fullest potential.
I really like the Eachlink H6 mini, it’s a keeper in my book. I am really impressed with the 4K video playback that was perfect, and the 3D gaming that was also perfect. However, like I said, thr bottom panel need to be removed or modified to allow temperatures drop really low and this box works wonders. The things I do not like it that it doesn’t have a navigation bar, It’s not rooted, it has single band 2.4GHz WiFi, and YouTube can only play up to 1080p quality.

I have this box, worked beautifully for about a week, then netflix and google play store, will just buffer, then time out. YouTube, and chrome work great, I cleared cache didn’t fix, can’t reinstall netflix, cause google play just buffers and times out. If I can fix this, this will be the best bang for the buck, still pleased with it’s ability, other than that.
Hi another user was complaining of issues of the box hanging and cutting off due to overheating, so he added a fan and the problems stopped, check that out first, heat can hake your TV box behave weird.
This box is junk, bought 2 of them and they both disconnect from internet frequently, the cant play anything without buffering. I use firestick with no ISSues at all. Plain trash, not worth a penny
The issue is overheating. Add a fan below the box to keep it cool it makes a great difference.

I even took the bottom off, and laid it on it’s top so heat can freely get out of the box, and still hangs on every thing I try to watch
May I ask what’s your Internet speed?
17.43 upload, 13.92 upload
That’s more than enough you should be fine, I can’t tell what’s all the buffering about. Could be a faulty box, might need to return it.
