The Nexbox A95X was the best tv box seller on Amazon in July, 2016 and after reviewing this awesome piece of hardware, I know why. When unboxing this unit, the first thing that blew me away was its tiny size. You can hold the Nexbox A95X in the palm of your hand and the box only measures 93mm wide and height is only 11mm.
Another pleasant surprise within the package is a different looking remote that sports buttons that will make the Kodi experience much more enjoyable such as an actual Kodi button, volume control, context button, number pad, web launcher, power button, and more. You will also find some handy keys that will take you directly to Kodi or to a live tv cloud interface.
You can order the Nexbox A95X with different specs. There are three different configurations which you can choose from when ordering this from Amazon. The one that I am reviewing is the model that comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM which helps with buffering and quick performance.

Upon powering on the system, I was expecting to see the typical generic launcher that it seems all of these Android boxes come loaded with. But not with the Nexbox A95X! This comes with a beautiful customized launcher with a nice current weather condition widget toward the top of the screen.
The first application that I opened was of course Kodi. Nexbox includes a nice build integrated with Kodi that seems to have all of the most popular plugins which is great for those who don’t know much about Kodi. I could literally give this box to my dad who knows nothing about Kodi, show him a few things and he would be set. Most of the Android boxes come with some sort of build but never include all of the best Kodi addons. I really like this nice updated touch.
I exited Kodi to the launcher and clicked the “Kodi Center”icon. This is a special section with the Nexbox A95X that provides the opportunity to install the most popular Kodi Addons with the click of a button. Within Kodi Center, you will find addon categories for Live, Sport, Movie, Cartoon, Others, Music, Fixkodi, Backup, CheckVersion, and Feedback. In browsing through the various categories, it is nice to see that the most popular Kodi Addons are available. You can think of this area as a “Kodi App Store” for addons…this is very cool.
The Nexbox A95X also comes with Android 6.0.1 as its operating system which I haven’t seen on any other Android TV Box that I have reviewed yet. The others all come with Android 5 or lower.
The Nexbox A95X is a great Android TV Box for those new to this hobby since it doesn’t require a lot of setup. Most Android TV Boxes require getting things updated, installing addons, etc. but this one literally works out of the box.

Would I use the Nexbox A95X Android TV Box As A Primary Streaming Device Within My Home?
Out of all of the Android Boxes that I have reviewed to date, the Nexbox A95X is my favorite for the many reasons that you see listed above. Its sleek and small design are very attractive and it is hard to believe such a small box packs such a big punch. This will be my default Android Box until a better alternative comes that provides remote friendly applications besides Kodi.
If I were going to start selling an Android TV Box on Ebay or Craigslist, the Nexbox A95X would be the one due to its simple setup process.
