Most of the newer models of Android TV Boxes support 4K TVs as well as high-quality audio compression like Dolby Audio and DTS. For the best movie streaming experience, you should pair it with your Soundbar or connect directly with your Earbuds via Bluetooth. Home-cinema at the lowest cost, guys!
How We Pick
What’s best for you may not be best for others. Nevertheless, choosing an Android Box for your TV is not that confusing as long as you’re aware of their core features.
We picked only models that support up to 4K resolution. The cost difference between one that supports 4K and one that does 1080p is not that big that even if your TV doesn’t display 4K resolution, get a TV Box that supports 4K anyway. Most do nowadays.
Having a good amount of RAM helps with processing speed of your device. Never buy an Android Box with 1GB (or worse, less!). We chose only devices with 2GB RAM or more.
ROM or storage is the memory capacity of the Android Box that will allow you to store files and apps in the device itself. Mostly you will see 8GB, 16GB or 64GB versions. We picked TV Boxes with 8GB or more storage, as some models actually perform better vs those with high storage. Also, if you plan to stream a lot (Youtube & Netfix), you probably won’t need much storage anyway.
Mostly we selected those with Android 10 and above, unless we think the device itself is still worth the price and works with most TV apps.
Most of our selections support Dolby Audio, some have dual-band WiFi and some have more than 2 USB ports. All these specs are going to be optional for most people so consider what you value more.
OK let’s scroll down to see our top Android Box picks.

What Is An Android Box?
An Android Box is a device that allows you to connect your regular TV to the Internet and stream content from apps like Youtube or Netflix. This means that you’ll be able to download, store and run the apps, just like other devices such as smartphones, Smart TV or Android TV, but with your regular TV as the display device.
Android Box Buying Guide
Generally, before you buy, make sure you know the resolution that the Android Box supports and the resolution of your TV. You wouldn’t want to buy an Android Box that supports only 1080p for your 4K TV! So, always get the 4K version as the price difference is not that big anyway.
In terms of RAM, never buy a device with only 1GB of RAM. In most cases, it’d be a waste of money. Aim for a device with at least 2GB, although devices with 8GB of RAM or more are a bit over the top. You won’t need that much.
ROM storage-wise, if you plan on streaming content a lot, 8GB should be fine. If you plan to store lots of apps and files, get more.
Besides, check also your desired audio compression support like DTS or Dolby Audio and ensure the model has enough HDMI and USB slots that you’ll need. Overall, it’s pretty straightforward.
Does Your TV Need An Android Box?
You may think an Android Box is something you need to run streaming apps on your TV, but you may actually not need to hook up your TV to the device at all. First thing to do is check what exactly is your TV type:
Your TV Is Neither A Smart TV Nor Android TV
If you have a regular TV with a HDMI port without a built-in OS or app stores, you will need an Android TV box to watch Netflix or Youtube or use and play other apps. It is a much cheaper option than buying an Android TV or Smart TV.
Your TV Is A Smart TV
If your TV is a Smart TV that’s not operating on Android OS and you don’t like its app store, you can use an Android Box to access the Google Play Store and enjoy the same features as an Android TV (albeit with slight differences).
Your TV Is An Android TV
If your TV is an Android TV, you likely will not need an Android Box the TV will have a built-in function to access the Google Play Store, unless you wish to get apps not available on the Play Store.
Is The Android Box Illegal in Malaysia?
The Android Box itself is not illegal as it is just a device that connects to apps like YouTube, Netflix or Disney+. However, having unauthorized connections or accessing illegal contents that go against intellectual property laws may be. As long as you stick to free streaming apps like YouTube, or have subscriptions to paid ones like Netflix, or download your movies legally, it’s perfectly okay.
