In 2018, when I moved into my studio, I got myself a UBOX 4 TV box as part of my essential house-warming gift. This TV box will keep me entertained during those lonely nights when I’ve nothing else to do. And I have to tell you … it was one of the best gadgets I’ve ever purchased.
Forward 2 years, and the UBOX has already went through several new generations. Sadly, my beloved UBOX Gen4 is now outdated and unable to install new updates/patches. So now, it’s time to put the Gen4 to rest, and get myself a new TV box.
Thanks to EVPAD … my wish has come true. We now have the EVPAD 5S TV box as the new replacement. The new model now supports 5G wifi and features an improved 8-core CPU, plus a dedicated GPU, as well as increased 2GB of DDR3 ram and 16GB rom.
We’ll be connecting this TV Box to our 55″ LED TV to see what this unit has to offer, and to see how well it will stream the content over 5G wifi. If you’re interested in this TV box … please contact Kiki via WhatsApp: +852 97432202

Verdict and Conclusion
The EVPAD 5S is an excellent TV box and media player. It’s another “must have” for anyone who wants to watch 1,000’s of movies and TV series for FREE. Yes, it’s FREE. The menu system is fairly simple, although they could have made it a little bit more user friendly for English language users.
Wifi speeds are ok, you get both 2.4G and 5G, however I recommend using a physical LAN cable for extra stability and smoother playback.
Video quality is excellent. You get the usual 1080p resolution on all TV channels and movies. There’s even a 4K movie category for those who’s got a 4K TV.
The menu system does need some getting used to. I found it a little hard to search for English language channels. Yes, they are all there … you just need to scroll through the list LOL.
