Zidoo X5 Android Media Player review

1. About the player

Chinese Zidoo has recently released yet another Android media player (TV box) based on the powerful Amlogic S905 chipset. The Zidoo X5 is a 4K media player, compatible with 64-bit Android Lollipop games and apps, capable of delivering 4K @60fps video output.

What could potentially make the Zidoo X5 stand out from the competition is it slow price, as it retails for about $70.


Let's summarize the basic features of the new device.

As we said, the Zidoo X5 is a 4K Media Player powered by Amlogic S905 Quad-core 64-bit ARM  Cortex-A53 CPU with a maximum frequency up to 2GHz and a penta-core ARM Mali-450 GPU. The available processing power is enough to support 10-Bit encoded video, which offers richer colors (color channel has 1024 grades), compared to the 8-Bit encoding method.

Of course, the Zidoo X5 supports 4K/2K H.265 video decoding, which is significantly more bandwith-efficient from H.264, as well as HD Audio (7.1CH) passthrough.

The player is bundled with a high-quality HDMI cable (18Gbps) to support UHD frame rates @60fps.

In addition, the X5 is the possiby the Android TV BOX to support auto power off and standby, taking advantage of a built-in power management chip. This great feature supports four modes: Power off, Standby, Reboot, and Auto power off. The Auto power off mode can schedule a complete power off or a standby mode between 30 minutes and 48 hours in 30 minutes increments.

The player runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, optimized by Zidoo in order to offer smoother multi-tasking.

Other features include:

  • ZIDOO MEDIA CENTER - Handle your albums, manage files, play music, access to LAN.
  • EASY CAST - Airplay, airmirror, DLNA, miracast, zidoo rc, google remote all in one
  • ZIDOO RC - Through the ZIDOO RC app you can control the X5 using your cell phone
  • IR Shortcut and learning - With the smart IR remote with programmable keys, you can control not only the X5  but also your TV
  • Supports HDMI CEC Control
