I have an Nvidia Shield that has Android TV.

It's nice, it has all the usual apps, like Netflix, Amazon, Kodi and the like. You can also play games on it with Geforce.

the dongle or built-in?

I REALLY like the chromecast so I got my father in law the AndroidTV and it works really well. If you are already in with the google ecosystem its quite good

I have an android minix box. Works great, although it lacks storage capacity.

So did you buy one yet, Cokey? I'm looking at a 75" Sony to replace our non-smart tv, seeing as we're about to be locked in our homes for Easter here :/ seems as good a time as any.

IMO "Smart TV" option is an extra service with a large overpayment, the real price of which is comparable to the price of a HDMI dongle on Black Friday - $ 16.
