We are not a big fan of HDMI sticks because they can be awkward to manipulate but they have a place in the wider ecosystem, for example in large format displays.
X96, a popular manufacturer of entry level Android and Windows 10 thin clients, has just unveiled a new smart stick based on Android that plugs straight into a TV or monitor.
At $89.99 from Gearbest , it sells for a tidy premium compared to the H96 Max which has a fairly similar specification but is also far bigger and can’t be slipped into your jeans’ front pocket.
HDMI sticks are a bit like Marmite but they serve a very useful purpose. The X96s is one of the smallest Android computers you will find on the market and is powerful enough for most office tasks especially as it supports Miracast.
