    Looks and feel

    It comes with just the one launcher installed.The Standered Beelink tv box launcher.
    The device itself is a small square tv box with a skull on the top thats eyes glow up green.The GT King has no rubber Pads on the bottom so it does slide arond the desk a bit.,The whole underside has no holes for Venterlation.It has 2 full sized USB3 ports one USB2,Micro SD card slot,HDMI port,Power input,AV port,RJ45 port & a Spdf port.There is a recovery button hidden behind the bottom case.


    Home screen


    App Draw



    I was impressed to see the unit comes with a Airmouse with a voice search function.Not many TV boxs come with a airmouse and its a big pluss for me as i never use the standered IR remote's that come with most TV boxs.The Voice search works as it should and is very handy.Now for the Airmouse side of things The remote with this box takes some getting used to as its very fast or im slowing down.



    Lets take a look at the Device

    External ports and connections
    2 x USB 3.0 port

      Yes Amazon Shows Currently unavailable, But will soon be there hence adding the links.The sixaxis app used to work very well on the older amlogic box's

    Perhaps, SOMEONE will be so kind to see if it has an UNlocked bootloader. Install a terminal emulator, type "reboot recovery". If it opens the Android recovery menu, then it is UNlocked. Thanks

            No, only 480p Netflix.
            It needs AndroidTV not normal Android firmware and also a license from Netflix to do HD/4K.

                They are probably using the GT1 AndroidTV L1 DRM against it's license terms on the GT King as Google doesn't give L1 DRM licenses to non phones/tablets running Android phone firmwares.
                The L1 DRM is of no use as no apps can use it, they could just as well have used L3 DRM.

              Yes only 480p Netflix.

                Still watchable, I think the Netflix/ all google desire is waning slightly

                      I am using a USB powered case fan beneath the GT King and this brings the CPU temperature down 10 - 12C without adding ventilation holes to the case.

                      It was running at 55C now it runs at 45C. Now down to 43C.
