Specifications

It is important to know what the specs of a product are before it a purchase can be considered.

The H96 Pro contains the following specifications:

  • Octa core processor

  • Android 6.0

  • 4K support

  • Kodi (comes already installed)

These are only a few of the specifications that the H96 Pro has at its disposal.

Design

Normally, the design of a TV box is not spoken about. There is a reason for the design is not spoke about. It is because the design is hidden within a TV box itself. In other words, the manufacturers do not create much of a design when they are coming up with the manufacturing of their TV boxes.

By and large, we don’t like to discuss the design of TV Boxes, because they are mostly hidden in TV stands. Moreover, manufacturers do not put much efforts in creating something unique in terms of design. But this statement doesn’t refer to all TV Boxes as well as manufacturers. For example, there is the MeeGoPad T04 looking quite eye-catching and sporting no common lineaments with other TV Boxes. The same can be said for the Nexbox A1 mentioned above. I guess this list is going to be enlarged due to the H96 Pro, because the latter sports an unusual design, and it’s going to be one of the key features of this TV Box.

However, this does not appear to be the same issue with every tv box that is created.

One example includes the MeeGoPad T04 which is quite impressive in appearance. It has no fault traits that might be associated with the other TV boxes. Another example is the Nexbox A1.

The H96 Pro allows for the list of TV boxes to be enlarged because of its unusual design.

Honestly, manufacturers have to pay more attention to design, because the market is full of different models and customers don’t know which one to choose. In such situations design plays a primary role. Look, the H96 Pro is a Chinese TV Box looking quite similar to the Q Box S905. I mean both devices have a cool LED light wrapping around the font.
