Android 7.1 which has been named nougat is now finally here and we must say we are impressed by most of the updates but there is one huge issue which is facing android 7.1 and we must address this before we go any further. On the older versions of android such as 5.1 and even 4.4 there is a display setting in the “settings” menu where you can adjust resolution but more importantly you can manually fit the screen to your TV. This is something that android 7.1 was supposed to do automatically but why they did not decide to include the manual option seems to be a bit of a mystery. There appears to be no solution to this and it is causing major problems on older TV’s in particular.
If you are going to purchase an android TV box that has android 7.1 then make sure you buy from a good supplier who has good back up just in case the above issue does affect you. We always recommend https://www.androidtvboxes.ie/ when buying an android box as they have being around for over 3 years and are not some dodgy dealer that other sites who have come and go appear to be.
Apart from this major mishap everything else seems to be in order on android 7.1 and in general it seems to be a faster version of android but I do await the newer version of improve on this issue. We tested the android 7.1 on a T95Z Plus box which is a very good box and seems to have very issues. If you are using an older TV you might be better off with an android 6.0 TV box until this issue is fixed.
