Thinking about it
If you are considering purchasing or updating an existing Android/Smart TV Box to use the gaming side of the box as well, we would recommend purchasing a box with the Amlogic S912 Octa Core chipset as the Amlogic S905 Quad Core does not work with the Happy Chick App Store. Both Amlogic S912 and S905 chipsets do work with the Android version of the games that you can get from the Goggle Playstore.
