X3 Pro RGB A95X F3 2nd TV Box Review

X3 Pro Amlogic S905X3 TV Box Review

The X3 Pro or should I say the A95X F3 second generation is a continuation of the best-selling TV box for 2021 the F3 Air. This model did not get the opportunity to take flight as it came just as the new Amlogic S905X4 models were being released. If you are lucky to get your hands on one then you won’t be disappointed because it has all the features of its previous model. A95X firmware are feature rich similar to those provided by the Ugoos brands.

 

It has features such as root switch, RGB lighting, and it has 4K HDR and digital surround sound audio capabilities. As not to confuse the both to models they decided to rename it to the extreme Pro, but in essence it’s actually the A95X F3 air on an updated firmware.

Cons

No 64bit under Android (but available under Linux / CoreELEC)
No DRM for premium streaming services in HD/4K (basic 480-720p only)
No navigation bar / status bar
Cannot output Dolby TrueHD (but Other Dolby & DTS available)
IR remote low quality (So Air-mouse recommend)
LAN 100 Mbps
Gaming performance affected by heat (cooling fan recommend)
NB. Temp OK during streaming movies and TV shows only when gaming there is a concern.

 

X3 Pro TV Box pros and cons

 

 

Final Thoughts

If I was to compare the  X3 Pro to the A95X F3 air I would say they are one of the same the only difference is that the firmware version and launcher is different than the X3 Pro.

So what I recommend it as a good box to purchase? The answer is yes given that it has some of the best firmware features in the industry and it’s running on solid Amlogic hardware.

The only concern is that if you intend to play Android games you need to apply a cooling fan, and it’s about high time all TV boxes running on the mobile version make it mandatory to have a navigation bar and status bar.
