The GoPro Hero4 has proved a very successful camera in the world of action cameras and it is now the flag ship go to action camera that people go to, to record their various experiences. But is this the best option or is it just the most well known due to great marketing from the GoPro team. Well the YI team would like to argue otherwise. The GoPro Hero4 is a great action camera and there is a reason that it is the most popular camera at the moment but in terms of price it is a very expensive action camera and there are good alternatives out there that are literally half the price.
The YI 4K action camera is a rival of the Hero4 and it is half the price of the famous action camera. Both cameras are a very similar specification and have similar hardware but in fact the YI 4K camera has extra functions that the Hero4 does not as it supports bluetooth. Believe it or not they are both equipped with a Sony camera that is 12 megapixels so they are very evenly matched in terms of film quality but the YI 4K camera also has a 2 inch LED screen to view your content live where as the GoPro Hero4 does not and considering the massive price difference this is quite a considerable difference.
The YI camera also has other functions such as a timer mode that the GoPro again does not. Considering the price the Hero4 is retailing at this is simply ridiculous and it is leading to other companies like YI to gain a share of this huge market. So if you are looking for an action camera it is worth shopping around and not going straight for the GoPro like many people have done. At least make a comparison to make sure you get the best value.
The android TV box has become a very popular product in recent times. There are many reasons for this and it is an area of technology that has become hugely successful and competitive with many companies trying to get in on the action. If you are still living in the stone age and have not come across an android TV box yet then here is a quick breakdown of what they are. Essentially an android box is a box that will allow you to stream various media from the internet. It is essentially a small android computer much like you would find on a Samsung Galaxy phone.
It has many uses and acts as an all in one entertainment system that allows you to browse the web, use Facebook or any other social media app, stream live content and content on demand. The beauty of them is that they are basically a cheap computer that will allow access to anything that is on the web be it an app or website. So here are some reasons you should own an android box:
- They are affordable. The average android box will cost you between $50 – $200 for some of the faster devices. This is not breaking the bank and considering the range of content available on them it is a bargain if you buy from www.androidtvaustralia.com. Also worth noting it is a one off fee.
- You can access Netflix and other streaming apps from them. Most people use a chromecast to access their Netflix account but with the android box you can stream directly from that.
- You can access Youtube on the android box. Many people still use their XBOX purely just for Youtube but the android box has this installed so it is convenient to not have to change cables every time you want to use Youtube.
So these are the 3 top reasons for getting an android box.
There as been an explosion in the technology available to have in your home be it security such as the IP cameras and video doorbells, smart TV’s and many more bits of technology that have flooded most homes in the last 5 years especially. One very popular product which you will find in most homes now is the android TV Box. This is a small box that connects to your TV via a HDMI cable and gives you the ability to stream via apps from the internet directly to your television as advertised by https://www.androidtvboxes.ie/.
Many people are using an android box to watch popular apps such as Youtube and Netflix and even browse Facebook and Instragram on their TV. All you need for one of these android boxes to work is a working internet connection and of course a TV and the box does all the work.
There are many types of android boxes available and shopping for the correct one can be quite confusing. Some things to take note of when purchasing a TV box is the warranty and returns policy but in the spec itself the amount of RAM (random access memory) is very important as well as the type of chip in the TV box. Amlogic chips are the most reliable and are the ones to go for and usually at least 2GB of RAM is recommended. Many of latest boxes have 3GB of RAM and an Octa Core processor which means that they are plenty fast to run the most popular apps as many cheaper boxes that have 1GB of RAM will really struggle and often crash.
If you are a TV addict and want full control of what you watch when you want to watch it then an android TV box is for you.
