There are many Android TV multimedia players that provide us with great versatility to turn our television into a full-fledged multimedia station. The problem is that although many Android TVs claim to be capable of playing content at 4K resolution, and they are, they actually fall short for other tasks at that resolution. That is why today we are going to talk about the new Alfawise S92, a TV-Box with hardware that can more than function at 4K and 60 FPS even with games, and that provides great connectivity as an added value.

To achieve this great power at 4K resolution, the Alfawise S92 is equipped with a SoC that is quite well known as it is the one used by almost all Android TVs that promise to serve 4K resolution, the Amlogic S92. In this case, the operating frequency of its 8 cores has been raised to 2 Ghz, and is complemented by the powerful Mali T820MP3 integrated graphics of proven efficiency. What makes the difference in this equipment is the use of 2 GB of DDR3 RAM at 1333 Mhz, in addition to 16 GB of internal eMMC storage capable of reaching 150 MB/s.

Alfawise S92, the most powerful Android TV for 4K playback

We told you that the Alfawise has great connectivity as an added value, so we are going to comment on it. And it is that when we handle multimedia content at 4K resolution, the reality is that we have to move a large amount of information in a short time. To give you an idea, a 40-minute episode of a series at 4K resolution occupies approximately 15 GB, so we will be forced to use either network storage (a NAS) or services such as Netflix.

  Need for Speed ​​Most Wanted for Android in a short test

So that we do not have a problem with this, the Alfawise S92 has an integrated 10/100/1000 network card that gives us up to 125 MB/s of theoretical transfer rate, plenty of time to handle content in 4K resolution. If we do not want to use a NAS, or we simply look for an Internet connection on the computer, we can also do it with a high-speed WiFi, specifically 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual band (2.4 and 5.8 Ghz ). To complete the connectivity section, it is worth noting the inclusion of two USB ports that serve both for peripherals and for multimedia hard drives or flash drives, S/PDIF digital audio output and of course Bluetooth 4.0, in addition to the obligatory HDMI video output. 2.0.

Now we only have to talk about the aesthetic section. The Alfawise S92 comes in the usual boxy black design that doesn’t stand out or clash in any setting. It measures 11 x 11 x 1.7 centimeters and weighs 179 grams. It also includes an infrared remote control that allows you to control all the functions of Android 6.0 (the system that comes pre-installed) with total comfort.

If you want to get one of these Android TVs that look so good, you’re in luck, because in the GearBest online store they now have it on promotion and if you use the discount code ALFAS92 when making the purchase, it stays for 51.25 euros with shipping including.
