MX10 RK3328: Cheapest Android TV Box with true 4K HDR capability


Shahina Mulk


In this age, when the entire world is marching ahead towards digital smartness, you might be dissatisfied with the slackness in smartness or complete absence of smartness in your old TV.
I believe when purchasing a TV, we need to focus more on its picture quality rather than its smartness, as making a TV fully smart is only a matter of few thousands, while, the picture performance is inbuilt and cannot be enhanced much through any external measure. You can also save money by going in for any normal TV that performs brilliantly, and later, augment its smartness by connecting it to a good Android TV Box.

Advancement in technology has made it possible to convert any normal TV into a fully-smart Android TV without having to spend much out of your pocket.
However, the Amazon firestick and Google Chromecast that are currently being sold in India are devoid of 4k HDR capabilities, 
which make them lacklustre. My search for a budget-friendly good true 4k HDR Android Box ended on MX10 RK3328.


This Android TV box comes packed in a neat black cardboard box with gold embossing on it, carrying some specifications along with its name, MX 10, and the manufactured country as China. It comes along with a remote, a charging cable and one HDMI cable. This TV box is quite light in weight, beautifully designed with MX10 embossed in gold on black. The shiny black sides stand out in beautiful contrast to the matt finished upper surface.

Connectivity Ports

On the right side of this box, there are 3 USB ports and one slot for the SD card. On the rear, you get one more USB port along with an HDMI 2.0 and a LAN port. Out of these 4 USB ports, one is USB 3.0. On the rear, you also get AV and SPDIF ports. The connection to the 5V power adapter also falls on this side. This TV box has been provided with lots of connectivity options for your PlayStation consoles such as PS4 Pro.

USB Ports

Its remote is attractively designed in black and mauve. It has a button, by pressing which, you can convert it into a mouse and use it for quick typing. However, you can also attach an external keyboard and mouse to it through, Bluetooth. The remote runs on two triple A, batteries.

This TV box runs on the latest Android 7.1.2, Nougat. It is equipped with RK3328 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU and has 4 GB DDR3 RAM along with 32 GB ROM. It supports 2.4G WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.
To gauge the performance of this Android box, we connected it to a 65 inches Vu 4k Premium UHD Smart TV and later on to a normal full HD Micromax TV, which was not smart at all.
This box takes very little time to boot up and we were able to download apps from the Google Play store seamlessly. This box is quite fast and downloading takes place at a fast pace. It also gives you the option to add your favourite, frequently used apps to the main screen. 
Android 7.1.1
YouTube videos boot up fast and play pretty smoothly without any buffering at all. The picture quality is quite good, though it plays YouTube and Netflix videos only in 1080p. Although it does not play these videos in 4k, you can download 4k HDR videos through it and play it on your 4k TV or through this box.

We also put this box to real test to cross-check its 4k HDR capabilities. Initially, we tried playing a 4k HDR video at 60fps directly on our Vu 65 inches 4k Smart TV, but, despite being a Premium UHD 4K HDR TV, it did not support this file. However, when we connected the same pen drive to this TV box, it played the video beautifully, simultaneously upscaling the picture quality too. The audio of the video, too, got a 5.1 surround sound boost, when played through this box.
This box brings to you an HDR vivid world that imparts the picture a vivid contrast, colour and clarity. You can download whatever you like and enjoy it in a true 4k high definition. The 4K VP9 saves 50 percent bandwidth resource and delivers razor-sharp details and vibrant images. This box has true 4k capabilities with an inbuilt HDR.

Now, coming to its gaming performance, the Quad Core processor of this Android TV box is powerful enough for you to play a wide range of games, smoothly. You can also connect your PlayStation consoles such as PS4 Pro 4, which works seamlessly with this box, even on an FHD TV.
We also connected this box to a normal 55 inches FHD Micromax TV, which turned into a fully smart Android TV, with the help of this box.
We were not only able to download apps from the Google Play Store but were also able to connect our speakers, keyboard and mouse to this TV through Bluetooth. Here again, we observed an upscaling in the picture quality of the video along with enhancement in its audio quality.



When we tried playing the same 4k content in 60fps (that we played on the Vu TV) through the USB port of this TV, it did not even display that 4k file.
Later, when we connected that Pen drive to this TV through the Android box, the 4k HDR video got played beautifully even on this FHD normal TV. This box has a true 4k HDR capability and is powered to play 4k videos even on HD or FHD TVs that do not recognise 4k files at all.
Going by our test we can conclude that this TV box is a beast in terms of performance, not only it has true 4k capabilities it is very powerful and does all its job in a breeze.


This box also crashed all tall claims of Vu TV that it has true 4k HDR engine, however, it is not denying the fact that Vu gives us good picture quality in less price, so for those who had been complaining about lack of smartness in Vu TVs and were also questioning its HDR capabilities, this is the absolute solution for them.
If you complement your less smart or not smart at all TV with this box, it would become a complete package. If you attach this Android box to the latest Mi 55 inches 4k TV from Xiaomi, it would give a tough fight to even the big brand TVs like Sony and Samsung and you would get a complete TV at very less price.
We have carried out the unboxing of this Android TV box, along with its complete review, on our YouTube channel Techiebeez India, if you wish you can watch its performance along with the real 4k HDR test there. The link to this video is given below along with its purchase link.
