Kodi Tips has gotten a chance to review the Element Ti4 Kodi box, an Android-based system equipped with two performance processors, 2GB of RAM, and support for 4k video resolution. Does the performance of the Element Ti4 match its specs? Find out in our review below!
Kodi Element Ti4 Specs
- AmLogic S812 Quad-core CPU
- Mail-450 Octa-core GPU
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB storage
- Android 4.4 KitKat operating system
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 2.4/5.0GHz wireless
- 4k video resolution support
- Ethernet/2 USB/1 SD card slot
The Element Ti4 Android box comes in a small box that includes the Kodi box, an HDMI cable, a power adapter, and a remote. The first time you power the Element Ti4, you are taken right into a very nice home screen with large square icons and a bunch of preloaded apps installed like Kodi, the Google Play store, Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, Spotify, and Netflix. Other Android boxes make you go through a long setup and Google sign-in process before letting you see the goods, so it’s nice that the Ti4 comes ready to go.
Upon launching Kodi for the first time, you will find that it is already loaded with an Element-themed skin and a few select add-ons installed. For new users, this is great. Again, you can maneuver around and test out your new Ti4 Kodi box without having to go through a big drawn out setup process. I found that the default Element Ti4 skin and setup was lightning fast. Moving through menus and playing videos with very little wait time really showcased the power of the box.
The Kodi add-on installed on the Element Ti4 comes pre-loaded with a bunch of popular Kodi repositories so that you don’t have to worry about installing them on your own! Among the pre-installed repositories are XunityTalk, Eldorado, lambda, and TVADDONS. These make it easy to install some of the great Kodi add-ons like Genesis, Phoenix, SportsDevil, and Icefilms. Best of all, you get these repositories straight out of the box without having to pay a premium like with other Android boxes.
Just from looking at the specs of the Ti4, it was no surprise that it is able to play 1080p movies from add-ons like Genesis with ease. However, I wanted to see how it would hold up streaming live TV channels. I was pleased with how well I can stream live channels from the Phoenix add-on with no buffer from the Element Ti4 hardware!
Overall, I believe that the Element Ti4 is a great Android-based Kodi box. A sleek look, great specs, and an easy setup process make this the perfect Kodi box for $100. I’ve tried out a lot of Android Kodi boxes and have used ones that have trouble processing live video. The Element Ti4 is NOT one of those machines. If you are looking at buying a new Kodi box, the Ti4 should get some serious consideration!

Before comment I can’t watch Netflix , tells me OTA server not found, the manual they send is so vague and you need 20 10 vision to read it the printing is so small. Doesn’t explain anything
I have had my box for a month, worthless a waste of money, I can watch Netflix remote won’t work to watch movies, tells me Ora server not found. I was told all you do is plug it in. So disappointed I was a tech for over 20 years. I feel I wasted my mon
not the same the Element has 16gb ram all these M8S+ have 8gb
By mistake I download kodi 16 beta is it any good and what is the latest kodi 16
Do you ship to Canada
This box is like all the other android TV boxes running Kodi. If your looking for a better box check out the Red Rhino 4K box by Red Rhino Entertainment. It has all the specs but with a customized media center that runs 50% faster than the M8S. It shows perfect HD on Live TV streaming and has all the best add-ons already loaded and setup on the main menu right out of the box. Plus with a Favorites setup on the main menu, it makes it easy to access your favorite TV show or live TV channel with one click. I’ve had one since July and it works perfect. It also has an Installer program, so if I mess up my menus or anything in the media center software, I can just run the Installer and it re-installs the media software and still saves all my favorites. Much better than those boxes that, when you mess up the settings or the skin ,your stuck.
I run a DIGIXSTREAM box. So far so good. I think I will give this a try for my second android box.
Same as M8S. The same…
actually, seeing the box visual + specs + screen menu preview, I think this box is exactly the same as the M8S/M8S+ android TV boxes that can be ordered from many websites. (there any many different manufacturers though… “ENY”, “ACEMAX”, …)
I own a M8S, and I can confirm that it is perfect for Kodi, runs flawlessly, and brings the possibility of running other android apps, which is not always possible with other hardware (OpenElec-only boxes).
