Hi Guys,

If you want the bottom navigation bar this is the one iv been useing from the play store that works well.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nu.nav.bar&hl=en_GB

Edit:After the 2nd OTA update there is now a bottom navigation bar :.)

Looks and feel

It comes with just the one launcher installed.A new look leanback launcher.
The device itself is a small square tv box with a front facing clock.The A95X F2 has no rubber Pads on the bottom so it does slide arond the desk a bit.,The underside has holes for Venterlation.It has 2 full sized USB ports one USB3 & one USB2,Micro SD card slot,HDMI port,Power input,AV port,RJ45 port & a Spdf port.The IR remote has good range & works ok (Air mouse is better)There is a recovery button hidden behind the AV hole on the rear.
