Quick CoolWell V4 Review: Octa-Core TV Box with camera

The CoolWell V4 Android TV Box is a device that’s fully capable of the features we have come to expect from TV boxes.

The CoolWell V4 Android player includes a remote for you to browse your content.

The first detail we can appreciate in our CoolWell V4 review is the giant antenna, which actually enables the device to receive WiFi signals in the 2.4GHz as well as the 5GHz frequency, expanding our connectivity and offering us more options. This is surely a good thing, because the CoolWell V4 TV Box is actually lacking USB connectivity. Only one port for us to connect a wireless HTPC keyboard or any other peripheral, will be kind of a limiting factor if we want to expand our setup beyond that. Nevertheless, this is a small price to pay if the performance is good, so, how does it fare, performance wise?

CoolWell V4 Review: great specs, low price

I was actually amazed because the specs sheet of this device does not really seem to go hand in hand with its price. The CoolWell V4 TV box seems to be capable of handling streams well and offering a great performance, yet its price is around 70 bucks at the time of writing this article. We will let you judge its specs and see for yourself if the CoolWell V4 Android player might be a  good option for your setup.
