The android mini computers are groundbreaking devices and many were rushed to market this year. This resulted in poor software support and overheating.
The UG802 overcomes these problems admirably. The software is setup so that you can easily navigate android features using your television. It is more like a media center than your phone desktop.
I have run this machine at 1080p 60hz on my widescreen hidef with zero glitches. That's another thing that the competition can't seem to get right.
Comparing this device to the infamous mk802 we can see that the Allwinner A10 chipset was ditched. This device sports a Rockchip RK3066, which is comprised of a dual-core Cortex A9 CPU and a quad-core Mali 400 graphics processor. The difference is processing quality is evident. This device is far superior.
The main complaint that people will have about this device is it's lack of a power button. Remember, this is a linux based os. Every time that you cut power shutting down improperly the device will try to recover using fsuck on restart. This could cause the device to corrupt in short order. A very good reason not to use the usb port on your television to power this device. But what I discovered is that you can pair this machine with a wireless logitech keyboard that has a power button at the top. The power button on the keyboard is treated the same as the power button on your phone. If you press it momentarily the device will sleep. If you hold the button down it will ask you if you want to power down. You can choose the power down option and once the screen goes blank unplug the wall adapter. I've started leaving it plugged in and simply sleeping it when it isn't in use.
The other thing that the device lacks is a button that places it in flash mode. You can place the device in flash mode using software but assuming that the software is bunk you actually have to open the device and short two pads to get it into flash mode using hardware. For this reason I'm docking a star. It is my hope that instructions will surface in later months showing us we can flash by imaging and booting off of an sd card.
If you buy this product you should immediately do the following: -Pair it with a logitech wireless keyboard with a touchpad -Root the device using moborobo and superoneclick -Adjust the display settings to match your television
Overall I'm very pleased with this device. I'm looking forward to developing some games that I can play on my television.
