The Big Box and Why Safaricom should STOP doing Devices


#42

You can load apps.I was able to install VLC, my IPTV app, KODI. The Safaricom shop guys(You can buy it without visiting a safaricom shop) did pre-load some apps but you can ask them not to do that.

I didn’t run 4k video. I don’t have the device with me now.

Safaricom just slashed the Big Box price and its now Ksh5,999 for everyone at Masoko :yum:


#44

Next thing is to unlock it .:grinning::grinning:


#45

Is it locked anyhow?


#46

6K, I may want it but I have their old one which I stopped using. Nah, I’ll pass.


#47

I tried my luck with the first generation and it would not use other simcard apart from Safaricom.


#48

You don’t want to use a SIM card with these things, unless it’s that Telkom SIM card that gives some sort of unlimited internet.

This is a good price, hope it becomes the new price for everyone.

Here’s another positive review. Looks like the box is a good deal unlike the first generation.

If it supported 4k safaricom would be screaming about it from the rooftops. But even kina apple and amazon only introduced 4k capable streaming devices last year or thereabouts so I’d think the market here for 4k capable devices is negligible.

They say it supports 4k.
