SuperBox S4 Pro Review
So we are witnessing a sharp decline in Android box releases, and an increase in live TV models with programming that some regard as questionable in relation to reliability and longevity. One such model is the SuperBox S4 Pro which is their 2023 release running on their latest fastest servers.
These boxes are quite controversial as many argue the high price, the legality, and the longevity of such devices. There is also the issue of the quality of the hardware bundle with the service for the price. The service accounts for the majority of the cost as the box itself is a cheap model. After my usual in-depth review of his hardware and features my findings revealed that the service is indeed very good. However box is quite outdated running on an Allwinner H6 CPU, and the Mali T720 GPU. So basically there isn’t much you can do on the box other than stream channels and watch movies.

It has HDR display with auto HDR feature.
It has audio output options, and audio passthrough option.
And You have 67 various languages to choose from.
And that’s all there is. There are no HDMI CEC options, root switch, power key definition options, built-in screen rotation, hardware monitor feature, or Samba server feature.
Pros and Cons
The live TV and a video on demand service works really well with no issues, it runs of their new servers and there is a little to no buffering. You get a nice Bluetooth remote with your purchase.
So in summary the new SuperBox S4 Pro even though the live TV and the video-on-demand service works great, allowing you to cut the cord and put some money back into your pocket, they could’ve done a better job by using a more modern chipset.
