Throughout the ins 2015, the <a href="https://www.xataka.com/analisis/apple-tv-4k-2021-analisis-caracteristicas-precio-especificaciones">AppleTV</a> It has actually been my best media gamer on any kind of television and also tvOS my best system for it.  As well as do not obtain me incorrect, I still like it and also really still utilize it occasionally.  However, <solid>having actually attempted Android television has actually made me acquire numerous benefits</strong> pertaining to the Apple tool.

Also if you press me, I would certainly inform you that I am also having a far more pleasurable experience than with various other tv systems that I have actually attempted, such as those of Samsung and also LG. I’ll inform you following what are the toughness of Android television which, at the very least in my modest viewpoint, use it a terrific experience.

Faster ways at the press of a switch on the remote

Although reviled by numerous, the Siri Remote, which is what the Apple television remote is formally called, was just one of the wonderful properties that Apple gadgets had. Compact, comfy and also with a trackpad with which to scroll conveniently. Initially I was alarmed to see the substantial handle of my tv with Android television.

Nevertheless, as the days passed, I not just obtained utilized to my hand, yet likewise my personalizeds. I saw as soon as possible exactly how pleasing it was press the Netflix, Amazon.com Prime Video Clip or Disney+ switch that was currently consisted of in the remote. Valuable, simple and also quick, considering that it functions throughout the system.

App Buttons

Nevertheless, it failed. In those I kept in mind the application of Switch Mapperwhich is exactly oriented in personalize all switches on the remote. Hence, I took care of to index in the remote the applications that I utilize one of the most in my everyday which as criterion did not have actually an adjusted switch like the ones stated over. The outcome: a marvel. I can also take screenshots!

There are not a couple of objections that I have actually checked out the Android Television and also Google television user interface, and also extra especially in its suggestion system. It holds true that they make the user interface rather extra complicated and also much less minimal than tvOS (Apple television), yet It has actually uncovered wonderful gems for me and also conserved greater than one evening when I didn’t know what to see.

Series, movies, documentaries… The recommendations inherited from Google TV seem appropriate to me. As always, I have not liked everything that he has recommended to me and sometimes I have left it halfway. However, on most occasions it has served me well. avoid wasting time navigating between different streaming apps. I trust it all to an eye-catching cover and forward.

Consume my own content

Mobile TV

On an Apple TV, it is possible to send content via AirPlay from an iPhone, iPad or Mac. The Photos app also allows you to play photos and videos there that are synchronized by iCloud. However, it is not allowed add content directly via an external USB stick or similar. On my Android TV, yes.

And this is something that I have greatly appreciated in order to consume content that I have stored on external drives. And yes, I know the possibility of creating a local network and using a media player to play it on Apple TV. Nevertheless, the simplicity with which it is done on Android TV It is what in the end makes me see this section as another positive point in my experience of change.

Although surfing the Internet on a TV is not comfortable, now I can do it

Android Tv Browser

I think, and I think a majority do too, that surfing the Internet is much more comfortable on a mobile phone than on a computer. On a TV it is uncomfortable because of not having a trackpad or mouse for scrolling, as well as losing typical features such as bookmark bars and others. However, this does not prevent punctually it is useful to me.

In addition to downloading APKs, as I will tell you about in the next section, the Android TV web browsers have allowed me to eventually resort to watching some video content that can only be viewed via the web. In tvOS, unless I used AirPlay with the iPhone, I couldn’t. And it is that in the Apple system there is no way to install a browser.

Welcome to third-party (and trusted) APKs


It’s not that I’m a big fan of APKs. Not for security issues or anything, since knowing what is downloaded and from where, there should be no problem. I am not because both the Apple App Store and the Android Google Play Store offer me everything I need. Nevertheless, punctually I find some app that is not available there and being able to download it from a trusted repository is essential for me.

It goes without saying that it is impossible to install applications of this type on the Apple TV. However, on Android TV and thanks precisely to a web browser, it is possible to download APKs that are later installed on the system. Of course, for this you need a file manager that I will just tell you about in the last point.

Managing files is wonderful

Threading with what was said above, a system file manager allows you to access the downloaded APKs and proceed with their installation. Although in my case, it is much more than that, since I am one of those who likes browse all system folders and, when I delete an app for example, I like to make sure that there is no trace of it left in these folders.

In the same way, I also think that the idea of ​​having a file manager for have content in the internal storage of the TV, passing it precisely from the external memory. Although, without the need for it, an app of this type is also essential for me to access the folders of that external storage device.

And, as you may have guessed, Apple TVs do not allow you to manage internal files with apps of this type. Not even the “Files” app that we do have on iOS and iPadOS is available on your operating system, while on Android TV there are many apps that serve as file managers.

I still have an Apple TV, but no longer on my main TV

As a conclusion to everything I have said, I must say that I still keep an Apple TV on the television that I have in the bedroom. That, despite being ‘Smart’, does not have such an intuitive operating system and the truth is that tvOS still seems like an excellent system to me for media consumption.

However, on my main TV in the living room, which is the one I use the most, it would no longer occur to me to use something other than Android TV for all the benefits it has brought me. Y especially when I use an Android mobilesince the Apple TV with the iPhone works well (although also with limitations), but with Android it is not understood at all.
