The Tronsmart Vega S89 is a device that lets you run Android apps on a TV. There’s no shortage of such devices in the market, but the Vega S89 is one of the better models I’ve tested.

It’s fast, gets decent WiFi performance, ships with Android 4.4 KitKat software, and a TV-friendly user interface.

Geekbuying sells the Tronsmart Vega S89 for $99, but I’m giving away the one they sent me to review, so read on for details about how to win one for free!

tronsmart vega s89

This device features 2GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a microSD card slot, 802.11n WiFi, and Bluetooh 4.0. It has an IR sensor and comes with a wireless remote control. You can hook it up to a TV with an HDMI cable.

It also has an Ethernet jack, an SPDIF port, 2 USB 2.0 ports, and a micro USB OTG port. While the Tronsmart Vega S89 is said to support 4K video playback, I haven’t had much luck getting it to play ultra HD videos. It does just fine with 1080 or 720p files though.

Here’s how to enter for a chance to win the Tronsmart Vega S89:

  1. I would love to try one of these devices again. Tried the MK808 a while back and was disappointed. Im a nerd at heart and would love to have this on my primary TV

  2. I would love to join the other entrants in trying to win one of these android tv devices. Liliputing is the greatest mobile computing site on the web!

  3. I’ve been waiting for these boxes to get to the point that they can be used as a light general computing device, and I think they’re pretty much there now. I bought a stick a couple years ago and was pretty disappointed with the performance.

  4. Posting in hopes of winning one of these, because unless the chipset people and the XBMC /Kodi people can come to an accord over GPL compliance I’ll never buy one. And it is a such an attractive device for running XBMC on…

  5. l enjoy this site very much. Please continue reviewing these android TV boxes!

  6. Would sure beat the original XBOX for my streaming needs. XBMC worked great for years, but I feel it’s time for an upgrade. Cheers!

  7. Sure hope I win! I could use it to stream Hoopla content from my public library account.

  8. If only I could be randomly selected, I would be so happy. That’s what my South Park Craig meme would say here if I could make one right now. ;->

  9. Actually quite curious of these “TV boxes” since they add so many new functions to regular “dumb” TVs. Thanks for the giveaway! 😀

  10. This would be really useful to stream android only services not available on a Roku.

  11. I have a roku3 and it works great , would like to try this product too and see how good it works , winning or not winning this device is matter of luck , wish u all of u good luck ?

  12. I ain’t gonna lie I’ma a nerd….And a chance to win a Tronsmart Vega S89…. I wont pass up the opportunity. … I want… I like… I should win…. lol…

  13. Please enter me. I’d love to put a TV box on the kid’s TV upstairs so I can get my living room back. I can’t take any more Dora the Explorer.

  14. Sweet – been looking for an android TV device to test on my home network. Would be happy to write a piece on my experience

  15. For all the latest tech news I visit Liliputing on a daily basis. I love technology.

  16. I’d love to pair one of these up with the new touch screen monitor I just picked out for use with my Minix Neo X7 (and future systems I plan to purchase in the coming year).

    Does anyone here know how this unit performs with Linux? Does it have hardware accelerated graphics in Linux? That will be the deciding factor in the choice of whether I would want to keep this unit for Android and reload my Minix, or if I’d go the other way around, or if I would bother modding either one. Android’s gotten pretty good in a lot of areas anyway. 🙂

  17. The smart TV I have (panasonic) has a rediculously slow interface…I have been wanting to try out an android smart tv.

  18. That’s a sweet little Android puck. I would love to win it.

  19. I’ve been looking to upgrade my current Raspberry Pi just something a bit faster. The Tronsmart would be great.

  20. This little thing looks pretty intriguing. I’ve been thinking about getting one of these device types, but a free one would be even better!

  21. Interesting device, would love to see what I could do with it…..

  22. This is an awesome device. I would love to have the Tronsmart Vega S89.

  23. This is my comment. There are many comments like this one, but this one is mine.

  24. Should be interesting to see what happens when Android TV gets released… how these end up comparing and whether they get updated.

  25. Would be a great addition to the day room at the orphanage that I visit every Sunday (for real)

    1. That was the best game I had on Intellivision. A friend let me borrow it and then moved away, so I never was able to return it to him. One of the few games that actually made that weird controller work well. Having said all of that . . . boy, am I old.

  26. Though I am in Canada, I have sisters in the US and one’s coming home for X-mas…so ya, let there be some Tronsmart Vega S89 love!

    1. Yeah; she’ll sure be surprised if she receives the device at her home, only to find out that it was sent to her to bring to you. I sometimes wish that I had a friend or family member living in the United States to ship products to from when they’re not available on

    2. Fellow Canuck here…been thinking about one of these S802 boxes myself…

    1. My daily routine when I turn on my laptop is as follows:
      1) Complete the NOSO path and daily poll.
      2) Check Thunderbird for new email messages in all of my accounts.
      3) Check Liliputing and PCWorld for Linux and Android news.
      4) Get on with my day.

  27. I like my Roku but it is missing a browser. Would love to give this device a try.

  28. This box got power. everyone should get one.
    thanks for good work by liliputing.

  29. Well Brad what if I told you I’d be your best friend if I win this giveaway; would that disqualify me from winning?

  30. I’ll throw my name into the hat on this one. Looks like a cool little device.

  31. Cool, great site, thanks for the contest. I’m in it to win it! Good luck everyone!

  32. I’ve just now been looking for an Android TV box. . . fingers crossed! 🙂
