Here we don’t spend too much time because mostly all Android box devices have a very similar designs, and mostly all are made from plastic. So the same situation is also with H96 PRO Plus because the case is made from plastic, and it has more or less the same design as other devices. It has two USB ports, one HDMI, and one port for a microSD card.

Performance and benchmark testing

From experience, we can tell you that the cheapest devices which cost around $25 are mostly not good quality because they have some shortcomings always. So if you need a good and solid Android box then in reality you need to spend a little more money.

We believe that H96 PRO Plus is a great choice because it costs only $69.95 and for that money, you will receive a powerful Android TV box. It is based on Octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU Amlogic S912 including 750MHz+ ARM Mali-820MP3 GPU.

When we talk about memory it has 3 GB of RAM including 16 GB of storage space which of course you can upgrade using the microSD card. As you can see really without exaggeration it has strong hardware for this price.

Of course, we have tried many different things from playing games, watching movies including 4K movies, going to the Internet we must admit that everything works precisely as it should. To be honest we have been pleasantly surprised because at the beginning we didn’t know what to expect.

Also as we said earlier we have tested PRO Plus with several different benchmark apps, and below you can see the scores.

Actually at this moment playing retro games is very cool, and takes us back to our youth. We really miss this time. It was awesome! So if you want you can normally download and install a SNES emulator, and you can play any Super Nintendo game. It is actually super fun.

Video Playback with Kodi 17

Normally Kodi is very important for every media player including this one. H96 PRO Plus comes with the newest Kodi 17 which works like a charm. In other words, it works without any lags. You can normally watch movies or TV shows of your choice. We have tried several different video add-ons, and they work as they should work.


Besides using KODI, there are other choices for which movies or your favorite TV shows. For example, you can install a VLC player. The other thing you’ll need is a USB flash drive, and then you can start watching your movies. We have also tried 4K and 2K movies, and we can tell you that they are also working without lags. We have been very surprised.
