Playback options

Equipped with a Rockchip RK3229 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz and a Mali-400 MP graphics processor, the Alfawise A8 can play 4K video in 30 frames per second. This is not the most powerful hardware configuration we can find on the market, but remember that we are dealing with a device with a price slightly above PLN 100, which is definitely budget. Such computing power, however, is sufficient to play media from a local disk or stream from Netflix, Youtube or Amazon – and in high definition. 2 GB of RAM is the right amount for the hardware to run smoothly in multitasking. There are 16 GB of internal memory available for the user, which is certainly not an impressive amount and only a few films are enough to fill it, but we can easily expand the available disk using the MicroSD card.

Interface and appearance

Control devices or an additional hard drive can be plugged into one of four USB ports, so there are definitely many slots for connecting external I / O devices such as a keyboard and a mouse. We can even try to use A8 as a personal computer for work, especially since there are mobile versions of office programs such as Microsoft Office on Android.

High-speed internet is provided here with the help of WiFi in the newest 802.11 b / g / n standard, thanks to which you will be able to stream smoothly and without slowdowns movies from Netflix and online games running on Android. The device is powered from a standard 5V / 2A power supply, and the TV or monitor is connected via HDMI or an older AV output.
