Since there are so many Android TV boxes on the market these days, selecting the right Kodi box might seem like a daunting task for some. You’ve likely heard different opinions from everyone, everyone claims that their box is the “best.” The truth is there aren’t really that many quality Android TV devices out there, you could count the good ones on two hands. Meanwhile, the market is flooded with garbage Android TV boxes, with all kinds of people trying to make a quick buck.

We’re very careful about which Android TV devices are included in this list, and would never recommend subpar hardware to anyone. The average Kodi user will find that most of the Android TV boxes on this list are fairly equal in terms of performance, but obviously some definitely offer a bigger kick than others. It’s quite easy to install Kodi to any of these Android TV boxes, and we’ve included a link to the install guide for Kodi under each device, that way you can see what you’ll have to do before you buy.

These are what we consider to be the best Android TV boxes on the market at the current time. This list will be updated as things change, although most of these devices have been on this list for quite a while.
