The MK908 II Android TV Stick is one of the most powerful mini PC devices out in the market today. For those who are unfamiliar with a TV stick this device basically plugs one of its ends to a TV while the other end is plugged to a power source. Peripherals such as keyboards and mouse will also be needed to be plugged in at the USB ports, or you can use wireless peripherals that connect using Bluetooth. This allows Android 4.2 to basically run on a wide screen TV with users able to play games, stream videos, or surf the Internet.
Some TV sticks have disappointing performances and suffer from laggy performance issues due to their hardware limitations. Not the MK908 II since it uses a quad core processor combined with 2 GB of RAM. This gives it enough power to run any application smoothly.
Streaming videos on this device works perfectly. If you have a Netflix or Google Play Video subscription then you will be pleased to know that they work without any problem.
While users operate this device like a regular PC bear in mind that it is still Android based so tablet-like operations still exists. Tap to zoom is present while dragging the screen allows you to scroll up or down.
This device can now be ordered online at AliExpress.
