Inside of this quad core mini pc:

Because this is just the sample device from factory, they made this sample manually,so the board is not very good:


1 come with rooted, tested with root checker app;

2 Original Android 4.1.1 OS, no other launcher built-in:

Setting menu, no bluetooth built-in

Support Ethernet,i use the following usb ethernet, working great:

Display choice,you can set the sleep time, the font size, and the screen here, however, i find a problem here, there is no 1080P output for me choose, when i click screen adaption, i get only 1280*720;

System information:

Google Play Store pre-installed, working great

Antutu test score

Antutu System information:

4K Movie play, it is the selling point for allwinner a10 tablet, and now it also working great on this stick;

XBMC can be installed well, but still can not play 1080p video smoothly;

Some new features i never seen in other mini pcs:



Summary : I play it around , and find the system will reboot by itself, and seems the factory has put much develop on the system, it seems, they just copy the system from tablet to tv stick. but this is just a start, i guess there will be more and more quad core mini pc coming in this month, we will try our best to get the lastest product, and find a really good device for you guys.
