        A look around UI and System information and some Benchmarks
        A couple of quirks
        When adding apps to Home Screen Favorite, after a reset they remove themselves

        The TV Centre App what ever that is (KODI) also not installed at present...Found
        Found TV Centre In apps needs to be installed so all good Looking like Kodi 17.1

        As I say Early days, Ui is fairly smart and snappy looks OK.

          An update today has resolved the adding of Apps on the Home screen all fixed
          Running Kodi 17.3rc as their TV Centre working fairly well with most of the Demos I tested
          Netflix Ok and Plex as usual

          Starting to get more of a feel for Android 7, more Secure, and new setup to get ones head around

                Is there an Android task bar at bottom? If so, can it be hidden and restored?

                  Upper Yes as seen
                  No lower task bar and may never be seen in Android 7 I have heard.

                      Geekbuying sent me this advertising for this box. It is false advertising. You cannot get it for $49.99

                              Hi,

                              Thanks for the review and updates trebor.

                              I also have this box, it came last week from Gearbest - I like it but have some issues with mine:

                              1. Ethernet port is broken, it will get connection but it does not locate the lead properly and over time it works loose.
                              2. SD-card reader is set a bit too far back so I have to use a knife or something similar to lock it in place and release it - not that bad just a slightly annoying haha
                              3. Home screen issues as yourself - does not keep settings, in fact if I choose a new launcher it overrides it on start also.

                              Can I ask what version software you are now on trebor?

                              You mentioned an update received but I have yet to receive one since I have had the box through the OTA updater app, I am on OTA Version: 91220001.

                              Cheers, Bob.
