Let’s take a look at the Android DHMI dongle Ug007; I have in the past used other versions of dongles, all aimed at turning your ordinary TV into a Smart TV or PC, but have found that this device is ticking all the right boxes for me.
The one thing that is great about this device is that it is the only one of its kind which has Bluetooth capabilities, being able to link up a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard has made browsing the net and videos much easier to do. Of course you could just opt to use your Android phone or tablet, but they can still make it clumsy work. Another great thing that you can do with having Bluetooth is transferring files, you will need to make sure that the device is also compatible.
The Mini PC Ug007 comes already to plug and play as it comes installed with the latest Android software, as well as Google Play; using your Google account you can start browsing the net, downloading apps, videos and music, with great results on image quality. Another advantage is being able to connect to a service like Netflix, simply log in using your account settings and you can start to watch streamed films and TV series. I have found that there is only slight glitches every now and then, but think that is more down to my internet and not the actual dongle.
I have found this device to be up among the best advancements in technology, being able to browse the web straight on my TV is really good, especially if I want to check things out like the latest football scores during the adverts. I also like to log on to my Facebook account and view my photos, or show them to family members that don’t have an account; the kids have fun with the games they can play and there is no need for me to have loads of boxes cluttering up the place. In fact the dongle goes into the back of the TV and cannot be seen which is another bonus.
Buy Ug007 from Amazon.

You need to download old version of Youtube (4.1.17) from androiddrawer.
2. Wifi problem
Weak WIFI signal is the most complained problem about Android HDMI dongle and mini PC. Of course, this also happens to the Ug007. The solution is to use an Ethernet to USB adapter. Cisco-Linksys USB Ethernet Adapter will help a lot.
