In summary, the Alfawise A9X is a great TV box in reference to its hardware and performance benchmarks, and It has all the best features and it’s priced to suit your pocket. However, the developers messed up by not providing root access and blocking lots of apps on the Play store. You also have to sideload lots of apps as they are not available on the play store. They also messed up the default keyboard and how it works with mouse pointers, an accessing permissions of certain apps, where you have to enable permissions manually.
