New Hexa-Core Player X99 Max S922X 128GB 4K TV Box Review

X99 Max S922X TV Box Review

So there is a new player in the Amlogic S922X category called the X99 Max. Actually they are not new at all. Judging from the logo on the box it’s from the developers who brought you the A95X Max+. The X99 Max falls into the same category as the Ugoos AM6 models and the Beelink GT King Pro model. But does it have the same power these to top models? In this review I got a some pros and cons that I didn’t get in the Ugoos and Beelink models. Take a look at my results.

X99 Max S922X pros and cons

Conclusion

The X99 max has all the right ingredients that placed it high on the ranking chart, and it performs well in all major demanding tasks. What torments this box is its firmware. The firmware has strange bug that has a lot of apps missing on the Google play store, which forced me to sideload most of  benchmark apps and games. The rest of  cons you can view below.

  1. Thanks for your review. This looks really impressive except for the firmware, a major drawback. Your comment about the firmware sounds familiar. I bought a box within the past year that had android 9 but similar restrictions on app downloads. If the firmware is android 9, it would seem there must be a quirk that makes it more like android tv os, which definitely restricts playstore apps unless you sideload, which can be a pain. Will you be making an inquiry to the manufacturer? Thanks again.
