Ugoos X2 Cube Review
So this an unusual design for a TV box, or should I call it a dongle. The Ugoos X2 Cube is not a dongle nor is it meant to be a full-fledged TV box, It is a crossover of the two. With all the ports aligned in the same fashion as a TV dongle, all it is missing is HDMI port sticking out of it. But it’s too big for a dongle. So the length of the HDMI cable baffled me, why was it so short and how would the user use that cable. Then it struck me that because it was too big to be a dongle and fit snugly behind your TV, they gave you a short HDMI extension cable. Well for me it’s a TV box and I used with another long HDMI cable. This is a great performing little Andriod device running on the latest Amlogic S905X2 hardware.

NEW !!! Dolby ATMOS Sound Test
Its over performance is great, you have good hardware, smoothe streaming, feature-rich interface, innovative features, good benchmarks placing 8th on the chart, and gaming with keymapping also good. My areas of concern are the low speed on the 2.4GHz band, no DRM for Netflix in 4K, limited RAM internal storage, and the CPU temperature and spike depending on where you have it.
