EVPAD 5S (2020) TV Box Review

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 Sadly, my beloved UBOX Gen4 is now outdated and unable to install new updates/patches.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

The Box and Packaging

As mentioned above, the package comes with the TV box, USB/DC power cable, HDMI cable, remote control, users manual, power adapter and a UK type connector.

 

The EVPAD 5S

For connectivity, there are 2 x USB ports, 1 x SD Card slot, 1 x 100MB LAN, SPDIF-out, HDMI output and a AV jack. At the front of the TV box, there is a LED display panel showing the time and LAN/Wifi icon.

 

Menu System

The first thing to do is to change the default language to English. Once the initial language setup is complete, you need to press “6868” on the remote control to enable the EVPAD 5 App store where you can download the apps for Jupiter LIVE TV channels and Jupiter VOD (video-on-demand). 

There are various apps available, including Chrome, various Chinese apps, YouTube, Netflix and many more. 

For adult channels … you need to download and install some extra apps. Enter this URL (12348989.cc) in the browser and click download and install the packages TSTT and SMZB . Once installed, you can set your own password.

 

Channels

OMG! Look at all the content available. We got over 1,000 Live TV Channels- China, HK, Taiwan, Korea, Vietnam, Japan, Malaysia, India, US, Canada and many Adult channels.  Over 10,000+ movies & TV shows. No Monthly Fee!

 

 

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.
