The Jide Remix Mini is Cheap, Tiny, and Has a Bunch of Limitations

The design of the Jide Remix Mini makes itself to be similar to a pebble when looked at from afar. This is primarily because of the curved body that is practically devoid of any sharp edges. It has a black color, and it also comes with 10W of power. For connections, it comes with an HDMI port, a LAN port, and two USB 2.0 ports.

There is a green LED status found at the front, and there’s also an audio port and a microSD card slot to complete the mix of connectivity options. On-board, you will only get 16GB of storage, which is only enough to save some documents and small-sized files. Hence, don’t expect to install any large-sized programs and applications on this one. As a matter of fact, there are tones of thumb drives out there that can dish out more storage capacity than the Remix Mini.

The brains of this mini PC is that of a quad-core Allwinner system-on-chip which is baded on the ARM Cortex A53 technology. The processor is clocked in at 1.2GHz, and since there’s no fan installed within the tiny pebble-like thing, it can become a bit warm when under operation. However, even with the increased temperature levels, these do not go to worrying extents.

Booting the Jide Remix Mini and you will be greeted with the Remix OS version 2.0.604, which is based off of the Android 5.1 mobile operating system. When comparing it to what the stock Android operating system has to offer, there are some useful features within the software, such as native multi-tasking, a taskbar, an option bar, right-clicking, and a file manager. Even though there are tons of limitations found in this mini PC, it is hard to find them to be at fault, especially when you consider its very cheap price tag.
