The Egreat A5 comes with a great quality IR remote control which is a pleasant change. We are generally used to seeing cheap remote controls packaged with Android TV boxes. The Remote control works via Infra-Red and is a nice size that fits your hand comfortable. It comes with all of the buttons that you should require including power buttons, android buttons, directional keypad, media playback controls and numerical buttons. The remote control also features learning functions so that you can map keys from other remote controls to the A5 remote.
