Strong Leap-S1: An Android Streaming Device with Solid Connectivity and Features

Are you on the hunt for a new streaming device? The Strong Leap-S1 might be worth considering, especially if you're looking for more features than your average streaming stick. This Android-based device comes with Google Assistant and Chromecast built-in, as well as a USB port for connecting a hard drive and a digital audio amplifier port for connecting to a sound system.

Design-wise, the Strong Leap-S1 is similar to the Mi Box S, with a flat, square shape that lies flat on the surface next to your TV, rather than being plugged straight into the HDMI port. It has more connections than most streamers outside of the Apple TV 4K box, including a micro-SD slot, USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, HDMI port, Optical S/PDIF, LAN, IR port, and AV output. The remote is similar to the zapper that comes with the Mi Box S, with a d-pad for navigation, volume control, Home, and Google Assistant buttons, and the usual shortcuts for Netflix and Prime Video.

The interface is Android TV 10, which is fine for easy navigation. However, it lacks the curation and useful info on content tiles that the Google TV interface provides. The library of apps is decent, with Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, Apple TV+, Paramount+, BT Sport, Spotify, Tidal, Stadia, Peloton, TikTok, StarzPlay, ESPN, Amazon Music, UFC, WWE, Mubi, Roxi, and Deezer. You can also sideload apps, but this requires some knowledge to do.

The Leap-S1's performance in terms of picture fidelity is good, with colorful, detailed images and good sound, including Atmos support. However, its HDR support is lacking, with only HDR10 and HLG to assist. The Leap-S1 costs more than the Chromecast with Google TV, the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max, and the Roku Streaming Stick, and all three have full HDR support.

Overall, the Strong Leap-S1 is a solid streaming device with plenty of features and connections, but its comparative lack of HDR support might make it a miss for some users. If these features are not a priority for you, then the Strong Leap-S1 is definitely worth considering.

You can buy the Strong Leap-S1 at SKYWORTH's official Lazada page.
