Legendary S922X TV Box Awakens – Minix U22-XJ Amlogic S922X-J TV Box Stop Review

Minix Neo U22-XJ Review

 

Now this is a TV box brand we don’t see everyday. The Minix Neo U22-XJ TV Box though not the first to feature these components and a firmware features, it surely makes a statement and differentiates itself from the rest. Minix is by far nor newcomer to the TV box industry in fact that they are one of the oldest original set of developers that started off manufacturing TV boxes. The U22-XJ packs a lot of power and unique features not seen in other boxes and is backed by regular former updates, and a Minix website and forum where they provide prompt response and the customer support. In this review I wanted to be very critical of this new model firstly because we have been waiting for for so long and expectations were running high. Also I wanted to see if the Minix brand stood the test as I ran it through my “acid test”. What I found was nothing short of pure excellence and Minix has lived up to my expectations. These are the results of my review.

Minix Neo U22 XJ Pros and Cons

Conclusion

Minix has been known to produce TV boxes running on certified android TV OS. However, they chose to go with the full version of android in this model. They really did a good job on its design, firmware features, and optimization. They have included so many features that just about everyone should be covered in terms of requirements. This model joins the ranks of top name brands such as Ugoos, Beelink, and A95X high-end of models, and could have well been a chart topper if they had clocked its CPU at 2.0 GHz. Maybe like the other brands they might release another model with this configuration, or even a model running on a certified android TV OS. Minix is not disappointed with this model and it’s backed by professional support and forum. So I recommend that you buy this model if you are looking for a TV box with legendary features, regular former updates, and prompt professional customer support.
