Review : Nexbox A95X Android TV Box

A while back I wrote a review of the Rikomagic Android Mini PC that turned out to be a bit of a lemon that still sits in the bottom drawer of my desk along with other gadgets that I bought that turned out to sound better than they really turned out to be. Last month I
