Mecool M8S Pro by Redskull Youtube review

Description: Mecool M8S Pro is the first Android TV box that uses both Amlogic S912 processor and Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS on the same time. Paired with the 3GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM, this device should have a good performance. On top of that, it’s also coming with Kodi 17and works very well with DTS and Dolby Digital. Although the AnTuTu benchmark test score is quite high, about 39316, many still claim that it isn’t as high as expected. Another letdown is the body material that entirely made of plastic, giving you a cheap sensation when you hold it

Pros

  • Sports Amlogic S912 processor
  • Running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS
  • 3GB of RAM & 16GB of ROM
