X96 Mate Allwinner H616 Android 10 Q TV Box

X96 Mate TV Box Review


So X96 decided to throw an Allwinner X96 Mate model into the mix probably because it’s the only models that can run Android 10. However, Alwinner again delivered the same results as most of the other models. If you have been follow my blog and my YouTube channel I’m sure you are ready to click away from this page because you already know what to expect. So I don’t have much I can say that may surprise you or peak your interest, only to say that it streams movies and TV shows via Kodi and APKs without issues.

X96 Mate pros and cons


Well the X96 Mate is no different for the other Allwinner H616 models. The part I am not getting is using Android TV OS, with no DRM support for Netflix in 4K with no root access. If you are interested in this box please be informed.
