Review: Beelink GT1 Kodi Box

We’ve gotten the chance to review the Beelink GT1, a brand new Android 6Β Kodi box. What do we think of it? Read on to find out!

The Beelink GT1 is a brand new Kodi box, released in August 2016. Boasting a brand new Amlogic S912 CPU chip and Android 6.0 operating system, the GT1 looks to meet all of our specs required for Kodi 17, which will not support Android 4.4 anymore.

Upon opening the Beelink GT1 box, the first thing that wows you is the design of the box. Much smaller than traditional Android boxes available on the internet, the GT1 takes up very little space, is shiny and sleek, and should look great in your TV area.

The GT1 comes with the following ports:

  • Power
  • HDMI
  • 2xUSB
  • Ethernet
  • MicroSD slot
  • SPDIF digital audio port

The SPDIF digital audio connect is a nice feature that doesn’t come with all boxes.

As previously stated, the Beelink GT1 passes all of our spec tests for Kodi 17 and the future of Kodi:

  • Android 6.0
  • Amlogic S912 Octa Core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU up to 2GHz(DVFS)
  • ARM Mali-T820MP3 GPU up to 750MHz(DVFS)
  • RAM: DDR3 2GB
  • ROM: Onboard eMMC Flash 16GB
  • Ethernet: 1000Mbps LAN
  • WIFI: IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac,2.4G+5.8G+ac
  • BT: BT 4.0
  • Antenna: Built-in antenna for WIFI
  • Expandable Memory: Micro SD Card (Maximum support 32GB)

The Beelink GT1 supported 4K 60Hz video and Dolby DTS audio decoding, meaning you’ll be able to stream all of the latest media.

You can stream video/music/photos directly to the Beelink GT1 from any Android or Apple device through DLNA/Airpaly/Miracast support.

The best part of the Beelink GT1? It is only $66 USD, which is an insane deal and price! This is one of the nicest looking and cheapest S912 Android 6.0 options available right now and is worth serious consideration if you are looking to upgrade.

  1. don’t buy this box. beelink just deleted the user forum so you won’t be able to see how many bugs users complained about. airplay, miracast, netflix not working… optical out not working.. poor wi-fi performance, crashes all the time, dark playback, overheating.. this is on all the boxes .. not just a few.. don’t buy this unless you know how to burn custom firmware

  2. Hi I’m binge watching Outlander, Banished, Blue Bloods, Pue Genius, Elementary, Stranger Things, and Gotham. In my remaining 15 minutes I do the trivial things such eat, sleep, etc.

  3. Bingeing on Pure Genius, Designated Survivor, Gotham and The Man In The High Castle and my eyes are bugging out!

  4. I’m Bingewatching Narcos, its gripping and interesting, more so as it’s based on true events, I watch it with my 26 year old son, our quality time. I’ve even got other people watching it, coz I’ve raved about it so much!!

  5. At the moment we are into “Room on the Broom” and “Stickman” by Julia Donaldson. Watching with my 4 year old grandson of course, but still excellently done.

  6. A friend recommended orphan black so I will watch that. Would love a Kodi box to hook up to the tv in the lounge

  7. I watch at least one hockey game, or portions thereof, EVERY Night! iCanuck, Many Thanks!
    It is great to be able to stay current with all the teams I folow

  8. Been binge watching Who’s The Boss, Mr. Belvedere and You Can’t Do That On Television. Three shows I haven’t seen in about 20-25 years!

  9. I guess you can call this binge watching,I started watching Dark Shadows a few months back.There’s over 1200 episodes,I’m in the 700’s now.Really takes me back to my youth,getting home from school and watching it.

  10. I want to seat and binge watch all the Simpsons episode from the begining if im not on the mood that day for simpsons i WILL watch all starwars movies in chronological order including the new ones…

  11. Currently binge watching the Walking Dead. It’s become our Christmas break tradition. Binge watching that is. Thanks to this magical little box for making it happen!!!! But my old one is not watching as well anymore, would love to win a new one!!!! Please 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

  12. Discovered Outlander this holiday season and have been watching it like no other. Original MXQ running 4.4, still good but a box like this would be a game changer for our family.

    Happy New Year all.

  13. Binge watching The Wire…again. Would love to try it out on something other than my FireStick. This Kodi box looks perfect!

  14. Game of Thrones. Because I, in my wisdom, quit watching it after season two thinking it would end up like the books….

  15. We are binge watching Scream Queens. We finished season 2 on regular rotation but we are going back to season one and watching it all!

  16. I was introducing some friends to Kodi and once they were over there off they introduced me to Animal Kingdom and I binge watched it.

  17. This holiday season I’ve been binge watching Westworld. The show has a storyline that has drawn me in, confused, and astounded me over the course of a short period of time. Combine that with the incredibly haunting soundtrack, and there you have a show that I’ve already binge watched twice this month.

  18. We are Binge watching Orphan Black. Tatiana Maslani plays the rolls so well I forget she is only one person! Her supporting actors are also EXTRA good!

  19. We are binge watching Dexter. We didn’t think we would like it but once we started we can’t stop. Nothing says the Holidays like a good guy serial killer. πŸ™‚

  20. My wife is forcing me to binge watch the home alone movies… Tonight I will be forcing her to watch the best Christmas movie of all time… Die hard

  21. This holidays I’ve watched a lot of films but “Sully” inspired me so much that I’ve watched it 3 times πŸ™‚

  22. Bing watching
    Hercules: The Ledendary Journeys and Xena Warrior Princess. Can’t watch one without the other. Anticipating the reboot of Xena!
    Then onto Daredevil, Jessica Jones and then Lukewarm Cage.
