CXS806 Amlogic S812 TV Box
The CXS806 is Wellglobal latest Android Set-Top Box based on Amlogic S812 Soc Solution. Similar to all Amlogic products this product should offer good support and compatibility with Kodi/XBMC media player software playing high bit-rate Videos. Basically, there are two types of models, One with a built-in camera model and another without. This review will focus on their camera model equipped with Broadcom 6210 Wi-Fi module which has a big advantage in video streaming and file transfer performance.

Design and Quality
Both design and quality are very high. The case shape isn’t the traditional square design, what you find in many android boxes. Looking at Top and Bottom of the casing It doesn’t have any ventilation holes. From my personal first impression operating the unit remains pretty cold and doesn’t get hot much.
Ports & Interfaces:
- x3 USB 2.0 HOST.
- x1 RJ45 wire Ethernet connection.
- x1 HDMI.
- x1 AV Output.
- x1 Optical output.
- x1 5V 2A DC port.
- x1 Power Adapter (Output: DC 5V/2A).
The CXS806 Runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat Operating system with Amlogic Windows Tiles style UI.
The Product is simple to operate. There isn’t a power bottom, Turning unit ON/OFF is done trough IR Remote control unit that’s also very compatible with the handle. The remote control has all standard basic functions such as navigation, home, Back, and “Mouse mode” where users can more cursor on the TV screen using remote navigation keys. This option is less convenient therefore it highly recommended buying a Fly Mouse Remote control integrated with a mini keyboard.
CXS806 IR Remote Control
Performance is good as expected from a quad-core Amlogic processor with a Mali-450 Octa Core GPU. Antutu benchmark score ranked 31733, which is a standard result for this type of hardware. The Box came pre-installed with Kodi/XBMC 14.1, I played few high bitrate samples in 2Kx4K quality, including Blu-Ray video files with sizes up to 33GB and all of them played smoothly without any visual lags or freezes.
- Video Camera: The video quality is of a 2MP camera, It’s not HD quality but its enough for video conferencing via Skype or Google Hangouts.
- WiFi: Worked well without problems streaming videos from YouTube.
