An Android box is a gadget that every geek should have in 2016, but if by any chance you do not have it then quickly scoot to the shop. I’m just kidding of course, but media players with Android operating system are definitely cool and useful, so in this review I will try to introduce to you the Rikomagic MK06 player.

Unboxing

If we look at the contents of the packaging then we can notice that you will get standard equipment like an HDMI cable, charger, remote control and user manual.

Design and build

For many users and potential buyers an Android box design is not very important as with phones it is, and I am not surprised because in reality really the design is not too important for something that sits on a shelf. From what I can see the company Rikomagic has decided to have more or less the same design for all models including MK06. the MK06 Design has classic characteristics where the case is made of plastic in a shiny black color. Also the build quality for this price range is very good and you will be satisfied.

As you can see this media player has medium strong hardware which will satisfy mostly all your needs including watching movies, playing games and other cool stuff. This hardware has been proven many times now to be very good especially at this price which is now around $50, which is really cheap. Also I have tested it and below you can see benchmark scores from Antutu and Geekbench.

Software

In my personal opinion Rikomagic has made a very good choice placing a clean ROM in this box. Because many people like more clean ROM in their devices, and in that way they can choose by themselves what and which software they will install. Anyway the Rikomagic MK06 has Android 5.1.1 operating system pre-loaded and for now everything works smoothly. Besides standard apps you have already have KODI v15.2 installed which also works without glitches.

Connectivity

Rikomagic MK06 has all the modern connectivity features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4 and 10/100Mb Ethernet. All features works precisely as they need to work where the Wi-Fi including Bluetooth have huge range for stable connections.

Conclusion

In my opinion Rikomagic MK06 is very good choice in price range around $50 because it has very good build quality, powerful hardware and great after sales support. If you are interested to buy one then you can do that at Gearbest where they have free worldwide shipping..
