    Hey all, I have this Android TV Box (XGody-AT768) and I'd like to know what I could use it for, like, retro emulators, media players or what have you. Screenshots below of it.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Doesn't seem to run too fast because when I was browsing on Chrome it was running a tad slow.

    Here's the Amazon page with info about it: https://www.amazon.com/Xgody-AT758-Android-Loaded-Player/dp/B00YXQ21A4

    Btw, I opened the box and at the bottom it had two metal plates for no other reason than to make it feel heavy so I removed it and it feels super light-weight!

    There are some Android TV-compatible emulators on the Play Store, try those. I'm not sure if it's compatible with controllers (mine isn't, for some reason), but good luck!

    Also it should run most older systems fine. I have a really shitty tablet, even the launcher lags on it, but it can emulate SNES flawlessly.

    I think you can use APK for emulators from web browser.

    Yeah, I've been downloading APKs through Chrome on my HTC phone. I'll use that then.
    The Play Store doesn't seem to have too many apps compatible with this device.

    Install as many emulators as you can fit, and install Ubuntu (No, it doesn't overwrite Android) using Linux Deploy.

    You can return or sell it and get a Shield Android TV.
