Tanix TX6S TV Box Review
There aren’t many TV boxes for 2020 running on Android 10Q operating system, and the Tanix TX6s Allwinner H616 is one of them. I am a bit of an optimistic when I see new hardware and new operating systems and eager to see what they bring to the table in terms of performance and features. However the Allwinner H616 CPU is not my favorite CPU to launch operating systems as it has been plagued by performance issues and overheating. In this review my results reveal that the Tanix TX6s is budget TV box and even though it is running on the Alice UX interface.

Love your work, but to be honest….I have trouble understanding you. The CPU generated voice was much easier to understand.
It used to sound better because it was American, but the truth is I am not. It was fake, it was not me, and I used to get lots of negative comments about that, I just never used to publish it.
I need to start being me and start accepting who I am. Over time I will get better, and perhaps you will understand me better.
Many thanks for your honest reviews. TV Box Stop is my go to source for information. My pet bugaboos with many android boxes is that they have poor heat dispersement, are not rooted, have limited RAM/internal memory and don’t run on open android. The best ones are open android, have lower operating temperatures and allow for flexibility and customization of apps, as well as user interface. Magicsee and Ugoos devices seem to be a cut above in this regard.
Hi Bill Yes they are. Ugoos and Magicsee are top grade, but Ugoos tops them all. And thanks for comments and kinds words
How to enable the Persistent Internet function? There is no this punt in the settings.
I am not following. Say again what function?
