    Hope you find the right Box.If you want a really good Box buy a Shield.But for that you need

    fast Internet.For what you need the box is important for choise.Good luck.

      Sadly.. there no vendors.. how provide Android upgrades on Arm based systems
      *that's mostly caused by amlogic/Rockchip/Allwinner, not releasing a new SDK/source code or driver updates
      **Even if the did..it upto the vendor to compile a firmware...most don't

      rikomagic/Ugoos/zidoo/wetek/minix/nagrace/beelink/inphic have a good reputation for providing bug fixes

      If you seek real upgrade path's.. then buy a X86 pc.. that has android x86 support (example asus n3150cl or gx620)
      *here you can install win10/android x86 nougat or RemixOs v2 or v3 /cm12 or 13 / libre-elec / linux etc
      **also you are no longer limited to install space and ram limits (well android 32bit sees 3gb / 64bit offcourse more)

      Anyway... what are you looking for?

          Funny that Rockchip devices not listed. But that seems to be a true fact of the support for them. Crap... Gpu and coding seems to be very lacking from rockchip and player support is just as bad.but the plus is amilogic. I dont agres with his comments re sub 905x and others that support the device. They listed only those supporting kodi and thats bias to me 😃 But is a good read. 
          Many devices now mk902ii/Shield/Mk68 /Ugoos/neox5/minix5 (yes they still work lol) mk80 no it doesnt work lol.

                      sideloading apps on shield got me confused because act like it's easy some act like you need ftp apk file over to device first then you can install the app when watched youtube videos.
