Writeup on TechRadar of very, and I mean very, cheap Android Thin Client. Some good advice too on buying Chinese online.


The Magicsee N5 Nova is the cheapest Android device with 4GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage so definitely one to consider if you want to experience Android on a big screen; as a thin client, things get a bit more complicated.


  • Very cheap
  • Good performance
  • Ample storage and system memory
  • Recovery button


  • Annoying blue LED
  • 100MBps Ethernet only
  • No 802.11ac
  • Only two USB ports


At the heart of the Magicsee N5 Nova is the Rockchip RK3318, a four-core ARM-based processor that uses the Cortex-A53 with a Mali-450 GPU. That is paired with 4GB of DDR3 RAM and 64GB onboard storage. Other features include 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0 and a remote control.
