Nextbox Smart Android TV Box : good box rubbish remote

I’ve had and reviewed many types of media devices and tv boxes now to know what i like and don’t like and hope that i can point you in the direction of this ones pluses and minuses. This is the new “qbox” – a “smart android tv box”. It comes in a box in stylish black with gold lettering. On opening the package you get the tv box itself, an hdmi cable, a (uk) power supply, a remote control (needs 2x aaa batteries – not supplied) and an “android tv user manual”. This is a 30 page document only of which 4 pages are in english. It is at least in understandably written english but gives no information other than how turn it on and hook up the box to your internet. So there is no information about what apps are pre-loaded or how to do anything else. If you are a complete novice you may flail about a bit until you can understand what is going on. The other thing is that remote controls like this are not ideal with tv boxes – and i tend to use a small mini-pad which has a keyboard and mouse built in. I suggest you invest in the same if the remote control frustrates you (and it will…)so, via the instruction booklet, you have either hooked up via an ethernet cable or you have gone into the settings and put in your wifi password… and now you can have a better look at the smart tv box home page.

Does what i expected it would. There are a few small things that are not quite there yet like the pointer arrow dissapeared but was there before, there are some response delays and it has to be restarted once in a while to perform faster. But overall it is a good purchase and i am quite happy.

It works to a fashion but its slow and not very responsive. I am afraid the amazon fire is far far better.

Good box shame power adapter missing.

Really nice looking box, veru happy with it.

Controller a little hard to use, but box works great.

Works perfect, just the remote is faulty.

Provides great picture quality and variety of programmes.

. Well packaged & arrived promptly, straight out the box worked perfectly, but the main issue is that it does not have a 6. 0 operating system which is what it was advertised as, big let down. The remote worked for approximately 5 mins b4 it decided to die. But the actual box is great even on a 5.

Seems to be a quality box had problems with the cursor on the remote not working but that was rectified by amazon immediately.

Working very smooth without any problem.

I have bought three of them , two were presents. None of the remotes work, but the box works well. Had to buy a wireless mouse so that the box can be used. So if you buy one be prepared for disappointment ( wireless mouse cost £ 10.

  1. The tv box itself is good, i have had no problems with it, however the remote uses 2 duracell batteries daily. I emailed the seller and all they could suggest was to remove the batteries. If i put a film on and forget to remove batteries they are dead by the time the film is finished.

    Good product but latest remote interface is bad. I purchased a mini keyboard to replace remote as interface and it works well.

      1. You need to install kodi on it and then add ons yourself but it’s easy enough if you follow the youtube tutorials. Comes with some apps loaded but may need updating. It’s a great piece of kit, im not a techie and i managed to install kodi and whatever add ons i needed and it’s working fine. I recommend buying the remote handheld keyboard as fluting around with the remote is a pain.

    1. Very happy with the q box, i bought 3 so far (2 from other sellers). It’s very easy to use and i just factory reset it if there’s any issues. I ordered this one close to xmas and asked seller to send asap because it was a gift. Communication from seller was great and i received it in plenty of time for xmas. Would highly recommend this seller.

    Have only had this box for a number of weeks and it is working on the kodi platform which rather tricky to negotiate for me in any case. There are some issues with film and music producers and the streaming of illegal content but it is still a learning curve for me. I just want the unit to watch iptv for a bit of variety alongside my sky tv offering. I am also trying to work around a possible problem with my isp blocking content and cannot enjoy the product for what it was intended to do. I will report further when and if i overcome the teething problems with my box (if i don’t die trying). The q tv box is a lovely looking unit which has a relatively discrete glowing light changing from blue to turquoise to green continuously and is attractive under my already smart tv. The remote is fidgety and i know i will need a more user friendly unit which i plan to purchase through amazon once i master the q tv box.

    1. This is my new purchase , it’s a q box , this is a good size box with plenty of stuff that wen you added you can watch all sorts of stuff in here.

    1.  short version=============i have had a q box previously which performed without fault, however after an act of generosity i found myself in need of finding its replacement. For the money its a great performing entertainment device that plays online content or communicate with the rest of the world without any problems at all, i find it hard to find fault with it. The amount of possiblities for connecting external devices such as mice, cameras, or even external storage devices (usb or sd card) is perfect for a demanding user like myself. One device i do like to use with the box is a mini wireless keyboard as it makes speedy and light work of typing or scrolling around the screen/s. 4ghz and 5ghz wifi connections or the gigbit (1000mbps) lan feature means that network connections and streaming online is without any lag or stuttering ensuring pretty good quality streaming of movies from online or home servers. Installation============setting up the q box is straight forward and requires minimal instruction. All that is needed for the box to be connected to the tv. Of course if using wifi the necessary wifi name (ssid) and password will be required to configured otherwise a wired connection to a router will be just plug and go. The included remote control whilst it does control the box as it should, and has all the necessary buttons to navigate the software which mostly is just clicking apps / tiles, as already mentioned i prefer to use a wireless keyboard as it enables a speedier experience. Software========the home screen is clean and not ovely busy with its pretty classic and neutral design. Good to not have certain movie images everywhere which after a while becomes dated. With it being android there are millions of apps (software) that can be downloaded from a variety of app stores so there is endless choice of games or movie/entertainment applications such as showbox iptv available to entertain. The box has a working ota (over the air) which often is a feature that doesn’t work on some machines. So as and when the firmware/software is updated the box can be updated at a click of a button.
