In this video, I check out the BRIQ3-DIVO Android 13 AI Box from Kyebriq. You can buy this AI Box for $289 / €267 / £235 directly from Kyebriq 👉🏻 https://bit.ly/kyebriq3divo using my $10-OFF coupon code CARPLAYLIFE at checkout.
This is an AI Box for CarPlay systems, it runs under an Android 13 operating system, and a Snapdragon 662 8-core processor will do the heavy lifting. There’s 8 GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage, and it comes in a fancy Cyberpunk-inspired case design.
Personally, I was left a little disappointed with this one. I had high hopes for its cyberpunk aesthetics, its Android 13 OS, its fast chipset, high RAM and storage size, as well as its Wi-Fi6 specification. But sadly there have been many opportunities missed here. The external design gives the impression that its menu interface will continue this same design, but instead, we have the same rather dated and old-looking interface from a few months ago. Android 13 doesn’t bring anything new to the table either, other than future-proofing the adapter with apps and updates on the Google Play Store.
Its fast 662 chipset does improve on some low-end Lite models, but it is really offering nothing new against the higher-end competition that was released some months ago, with the only real offering being the advantage of more RAM for more stable multitasking, and some improvement in apps and games that utilise it. Its generous 128GB of storage capacity may be a positive bullet point, however, it will only come into its own when installing large games or locally storing large media files on the adapter, otherwise, I feel a storage of this size will be wasted on most people.
Finally, there is the illusive Wi-Fi6 feature, which I couldn’t see being used or transmitted in any of my test Wi-Fi programs. So in short I find this BRIQ3-DIVO more of an Android 13 upgrade and slight spec bump in its RAM and storage over its BRIQ3-Pro model, than what it tries to convey with its fancy aesthetics and promise of lightning-fast Wi-Fi6 connectivity. If aesthetics is really a primary future for your next AI Box, then you’re better off looking elsewhere.
