Beelink GT1 Ultimate Android 6.0 TV Box Review
The 2017 Beelink GT1 Ultimate Android 7.1 TV Box is Beelink’s latest TV box release. So whats different from their previous releases. Well for starters the the Beelink GT1 Ultimate has moved away from the S905 CPU and has embraced the new S912 Octa Core CPU running 2.0GHz. With that new CPU Beelink was also able to use the new Mali T820 MP3 GPU running up to 750Mhz. It comes with 3GB of DDR4 RAM and 32GB of Internal storage.

So what can I say? Beelink delivered another solid TV box for the masses. Yes, the Beelink GT1 Ultimate still suffers from a regulated CPU clock range to control the overheating problem like all the Amlogic S912 TV boxes. I am yet to see one of those S912 TV boxes hit 2.0GHz flat without clocking 70° and over, so I wait to see if any manufacturer could achieve this. Even though it can play lots of 4K videos, it still cannot play 4K videos over that 250Mbps without sticking and jerking. I had real difficulty shooting this video because the box is very glossy and I had to be cleaning the surface from finger prints every time I touched it. I liked how they implemented the root issue this time, and you don’t have to run OTA updates to get root access. What I didn’t like was the long long process to install the QodiMate addons all package, you are better off installing Kodi from the Google Play Store and installing addons for yourself. Is it a good TV Box to buy? I say YES! its a great TV box to buy. It’s small fast, has lots internal storage, it runs on 3GB GGR4 RAM and it plays all my favorite games without any problems. For those interested in the app I used to play the game it’s called GKM Touch found on the Google play store. WARNING! the GKM Touch is not straight forward to use, but once you configure it right, the app is pure magic, allowing you to use any Bluetooth or wired game controller to play ANY ANDROID GAME! with swipe and double touch controls with a gamepad, really cool stuff. Have fun people, see you in the next video.
