Xiaomi Mi 4K TV-Box (global version) Review

We already had some TV boxes in the test, such as the OTT TV Box or the UBOX S805; Both have promised to be 4K-capable, but in practice this looked different. Whether Xiaomi holds this promise, you will find here!

Scope of delivery & design

The box has arrived in us, as typical for Xiaomi, in a plain cardboard box. In addition to the set-top box, a Bluetooth remote control, a (very short) HDMI cable, an EU power supply and an instruction manual are available in English and Chinese.

Design is, of course, always a question of taste, but in my opinion, Xiaomi has done a good job again. The box is smaller and thinner with the dimensions 101 x 101 x19.5mm than the TV boxes we have presented so far and is as usual for Xiaomi very clean processed – there is nothing to criticize.

Unfortunately it is synonymous with the fewest connection possibilities, only an HDMI, a USB and 3.5mm jack port are available – not exactly much, even if it is enough.
