    Heres my little advice on this cheapo device
    That has actually made this device reasonably bearable 'especially now that I can play most gameloft games like modern combat on it' I still very much recommend getting a better one but if 25$ is all you can afford why not try to pimp it out and make the best of it?

    Heres the things I've done and why and I hope it helps someone

    Step 1
    FACTORY RESET
    For some reason my experience with this device was horrid day 1 of getting it but factory resetting it helped ALOT but still had issues so let's proceed

    Step2
    Developer options
    Go to settings
    Go to about media box
    Keep tapping build number till developer options is enabled
    Then change these settings like I did
    Windows animation scale
    Transition scale
    Duratuin scale
    All off
    Force gpu rendering
    Force 4x msaa
    Disable hw overlays
    ->Don't keep activities
    Background process limit
    No background processes<- 'you will be using your android TV like a console basically anyways and this helps alot!'
    But it still isn't enough apps once in a blue moon will still lock up and you need an easy way to kill them automatically for real and having these settings still keeps the app intact

    So the last thing you will need is
    Advanced task killer

    Step 3
    Final step
    Install advanced task killer
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mobi.infolife.taskmanager

    Open it
    Go to ignore list
    Lock the apps YOU TRULY NEED 'overlay digital clock is mine ;)' only the apps you need running in the background for whatever reason just know that the more you let go the less results imo

    Click the 3 dots on the top right
    Go to settings
    Make sure automatically start up is checked
    Turn regular kill on and click the settings by it
    Turn regular kill notice on 'optional I like to know it's still running'
    Go to regular kill frequency
    Do every one minute 'so you can close an app fast if it is acting up without having to go through any other trouble while it is freezing due to it so you can't'
    Click okay and then turn startup kill on for effect
    Go back to home and your done

    I suggest getting a better launcher aswell I use Square Home 3
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ss.squarehome2

    I also suggest getting a good usb tb hdd so you can get all the games you could ever want to play and an app called octopus to set it

    I've also discovered you can't add games to octopus while don't keep activities is enabled disable it add the games to the list then reenable

    Octopus gamepad:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.chaozhuo.gameassistant

    'You'r going to have to Google octopus apk to get it'

    Lastly I believe that updating Google play services seems to make everything go downhill so maybe try to stay away from updating that as long as you can 🤷

    Also unfortunately octopus seems to aswell I don't know a decent fix

    Apk mirror seems to be the best place to install apks if you cannot find them in the play store

    I don't claim to know everything I just know what worked good for me

    Another thing that I have discovered
    DO NOT CHANGE DEV OPTIONS IN SETUP MODE WITH REMOTE!

    It will reset the developer options to default by the looks of it

    Found a better task killer app set it to auto every 15 seconds

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.androidrocker.taskkiller

    ADD SETTINGS TO IGNORE LIST

    I've also found something else out it usually freezes on the home menu so it might be a good idea to start using a float launcher instead
    Plenty in the play store

    I also recommend using this

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=flar2.homebutton

    To remap your controllers buttons so you can use it to launch things it's proven useful to get out of a frozen moment

    Set a foreground killing action to one of your remote buttons go back and forth from app to app and hit that button

    'I have 1 set to Google play and 2 to octopus and 0 to foreground kill when octopus freezes I press 1 press 0 then press 2 sometimes have to keep repeating it till it works again'

    Hotkey this as a final and last resort!!
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.force.stop.app

    SETTING REMOTE NUMBERS ALSO EFFECTS KEYBOARD NUMBERS KEEP THIS IN MIND

    Greenify seems to help aswell


    TIE THIS APP TO REMOTE KEY IT WORKS VERY WELL!!!
