MXQ G28 TV-Box Overview
A box that at the moment, due to its crazy price, seems not to be really for sale and that will become one of the few to carry this five-core AMlogic S928X, the most powerful of this brand. The operating system is Android 11, although we hope that one of these days it will be updated to Android 13.
The rest of its configuration is nothing remarkable, since it is quite standard, with the absence of the Widevine L1 certificate being mentioned as a negative point, which makes it a bad choice for watching paid streaming in high quality. An expensive product and far from being complete, it is better to consider other options if we are looking for something for streaming.
