Amkette Evo TV 2 is a smart Android box RS6499

Indian technology company Amkette’s Evo TV smart boxes were initially meant to allow users access to more streaming services, and extend the entertainment beyond just the TV channels. Evo TV 2 does a lot more—thanks to the Android foundations. One evolution that immediately stands out is that there is no confusion about how to juggle between apps and games. The Evo TV 2 is all about media playback and apps.

Priced at Rs.6,499, it is available on Snapdeal.com.

Design: Small packages, good things

The Evo TV 2 is a very compact box, with a design very similar to an ice-hockey puck. It is 117mm wide, 118mm deep and 28mm thick. There are 4 USB ports (1 on the back and 3 on the side) for connecting external accessories such as storage drives or a wireless keyboard, for example. There is also a SD/MMC card slot, which makes it even easier to view media—such as photos from your phone or your digital camera.

Quite a few recently-launched similar Android media boxes (such as iRevo’s Smart TV and a bunch of those with Chinese origins) run Google’s Android operating system meant for smartphones and tablets. This must not be confused with the much more sophisticated Android TV software that Google has developed specifically for smart televisions (such as the Sony Bravia 2016 range) and devices such as the Nexus Player. Irrespective, the advantage of Android is the wide variety of apps that become instantly available on the Evo TV 2.

To be precise, the software running on the Evo TV 2 is Android 4.4.2 (KitKat). Amkette has wrapped a skin on top of Android, which we feel definitely increases usability as well as makes it easier for users to get to the content they want. The home screen has a grid based layout—there is one touch access to YouTube, Kodi media server application, a media player app, the app store and the app drawer to access the full list of apps on the device. The grid of six apps below these static elements is fully customizable as well, and you can pin your most used apps—Netflix, Chrome web browser, music player etc.

To download apps, there is the full Google Play Store and Amkette has also added its own store that offers download links to some apps that may not be easily available on the Play Store. And since this is Android, you can also install apps if you download an APK installer file through the Chrome browser.

There are a bunch of apps preloaded on the Evo TV 2, such as Hotstar, Star Sports, Hooq, Eros Now, which can be uninstalled as well.
