The launcher looks nice,with big and nice tiles, like in Windows 8.1 / 10 Metro style. There are a lot of preinstalled applications, including Play Store (not working) and Google applications (gapps). This firmware version has not root acces.

In Antutu Video Tester 3.0 Scishion V88 Pro TV Box scores 831 points, a very good score in this test ranking. It played smoothly almost all video file types; this firmware version fully supports 27 video & audio format files and it partially supports only 3 video & audio format files.

In Antutu Benchmark 6.2.5 the device achieves a decent score, almost 23.000 points.

Internet speed tested on both WiFi & Ethernet gets good values. In WiFi, the download speed was over 39 Mbps and the upload speed over 37 Mbps. Wired, on Ethernet connection, the download speed was 48 Mbps and the upload speed was 95 Mbps. The router used in this test is Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router.

Scishion V88 Pro TV Box is indeed the cheapest TV Box with Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 powered by Amlogic S905X, not very impressive overall, but only for a few money you can give it a shot, maybe for you first Android TV Box experience.
