Amlogic Oreo 8.1 on S905X

Amlogic ‘released’ Android Oreo 8.1. They did it for their next generation SoC-s but support for S905X also exists. Just to be noted I don’t expect any of manufacturers to release Oreo for their S905X devices. A lot of them are still on Marshmallow anyway.

My opinion on SDK and code is actually good. There are issues here and there but over next few releases of SDK it will be fixed.

Android is stable – only bug I noticed in short time of testing is rotating screen in apps such as Antutu Benchmark (see screenshots below).

Geekbench 4 scores are not too bad (check here).

Kodi 17.6 runs fine, all videos I’ve tested worked without issues but for some reason it doesn’t read CPU usage on any of 4 cores.

So, this is just small report (not review!) on Oreo from Amlogic and how they actually surprised me for once 🙂

Here are some screenshots:
