    Yes! Android or Windows, which do you prefer?

    BBC iPlayer does not play through a web browser in Android. The BBC iPlayer app must be used or the Kodi BBC iPlayer Add-on!

    Sorry, I missunderstood you. I do not know which OS to prefer. I expect only the smooth qulaity of whatching and zaping.

    For Android MINIX NEO U1 (But there may be a new MINIX Android device soon!)
    For Windows MINIX NEO Z83-4

    It's really up to you and what you want from the device!

    I haven't yet tried a Windows device at the TV, only Android. If you want simplicity and ease of use with an airmouse (MINIX NEO A2 Lite) then I recommend an Android device.
    If I had already tried my Z83-4, setup for use with my TV, I may recommend differenty but until I try it I can't say. It is something that I wish to try when I have the time!

    But I am totally happy with my U1! (y)
    I use it for BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, All 4, Zattoo, Kodi, etc....

    I bought X7 mini just for the test with purchace on appreval. Is it becouse 4K and WiFi aerial or slightly better perfomance that you would prefer newer device instead. Which would you prefer of those: Neo Z83-4, Neo X8-H or Neo U1? Maybe you have even bettet suggestion? Are moviestreaming in browser of quite poorer quality than in apps? Is is possible to view movies i browser without browser's frame?

    I would cancel this purchase and buy the newer U1. Newer version of android and fully developed and twigged by Minix team. In my opinion the best Minix so far.

    U1 or X8H plus? Which to chose? I have tested X7 mini all this night with factory settings: not sharp screen.

    I live in Sweden and want to install iplayer BBC so I can read subtitles in live TV without browser. I have tried many ways by following the advices on the net without luck. I still did not upgradet xbmc from gotham so I can not install xbmc BBC iplayer yet.

    Will I get a sharper screen with U1 or maybe I should switch to a gold HDMI cable?

    Besides I did not find iOS app to remote control the minix. I ordered Neo A2 mini from the store.
