Tanix TX3 Max Alice UX TV Box Review
Tanix has released their new user interface called Alice UX in their latest TV box the Tanix TX3 Max Alice UX. This the second release of the TX3 and it is suppose to deliver something of an improvement to users interested in buying this box. Before you get all excited about what is Alice UX, let me tell you that this box is budget TV box, it’s not a high end TV box with a high price tag. Actually it only cost $40.00 as of today, prices my vary as time goes on. However, this box is mainly for watching free movies and TV shows, is has basic hardware specs and performs well as a movie streamer. In my reviews I usually run the boxes through a series of benchmark tests, and I also test the box for heat management and its 4K and gaming capabilities, and compatibility with certain special apps.
Alice UX User Interface
So this is Alice UX, where the UX stands for user experience, and let’s see how this actually applies. The launcher takes into consideration two types of users, stock remote users, and mouse and mini touch-pad keyboard users. The launcher comes with a side panel on the left, this is ideal for users of the stock remote ,it allows you to navigate easily between settings and apps. You can multitask by simply pressing the left arrow on the remote while on the panel, and simply click left again to close any app. You can click up and down to select any app running in the background you would like to open. This is ideal for users of the stock remote.
The launcher comes with a navigation bar and status bar for easy navigation, this is for users who prefer to use a mouse or a mini touch-pad keyboard to navigate their box. They have also customized the settings area for easy changing of your settings. So the the new launcher was designed with both type of users in mind. However, if you don’t like this launcher, you are free to install other launchers like the Nova launcher if that’s what you prefer.

So in summary, I wouldn’t go into the pros and cons about this box because the box is a budget TV box. All I can say is that the box is best used for only streaming movies and TV shows and that’s about it. However, I personally feel that it was a bad decision by Tanix to choose this model to launch their Alice UX interface, it really did the new UX interface no justice.
