Zidoo X5 Review, Latest Amlogic S905 Android Media Player

Nov 29, 2013
It was only logical to see Android media player from Zidoo with Amlogic S905.
Because many other companies has already introduced similar device and we all know that this
chipset is offers performance at very low price. So Zidoo X5 is their newest media player.


Design and build

Performance and benchmark testing


Amlogic S905 Cortex A53 64bit Processor up to 2.0GHz
Penta-Core ARM Mali-450
System Memory – 1GB DDR3
Storage memory – 8GB plus available upgrade with microSD card
Video Output – HDMI 2.0 up to 4K @ 60Hz with CEC support
Connectivity – Bluetooth 4.0, 10/100M Fast Ethernet and 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
USB – 2x USB
Power Supply – 5V/2A

From technical specifications we can see that this media player has medium strong built-in hardware
which has later proved to be very good for almost every purpose, from gaming to watching moves.
Every apps opens fast and works without lags. Below you can see also benchmark test results which are more or less expected.


Maybe you have noticed but if you didn't, every Zidoo product comes with their customised user interface.
Zidoo X5 has also customised user interface which looks really cool. The operating system is Android 5.1.1, and it
works fast and fluid without lags. From ordinarily applications it has of course pre-installed KODI. During use I
did not encountered any problems in KODI. Below you can see some screenshots from KODI.

In my opinion Zidoo X5 is great Android media player because it offers high build quality.
But from other information it has very good hardware and excellent after sale support which is very important.
Here you can see more information about Zidoo X5, and you can find out on their official website.
