MECOOL HM8 by Tech Checker Youtube review

Description: Because the MECOOL HM8 is made out of metal, it’s sturdy and durable. With its gold finish, the box looks amazing and gives you the premium feel. Although it has only 1GB of RAM and 8GB of ROM, which certainly not sufficient to install many apps, it is pre-installed with Kodi 17. When you’re in the launcher, you will notice that this device doesn’t have a navigation bar. That means you cannot do multitasking and that’s a letdown. This Android TV box is able to playback 4K content. However, not all app are compatible with this box’s Android version
