On reviews generally, I have a retain a certain skepticism. They almost always leave some kind of detail that is important to me and others or they don't have a "complete" review of the product. The detail pertaining to the article should not have been missed by those reviewing it.

Anonymous, 11 Dec 2017Xiaomi's Mi Box has a branch of devices without the DRM keys and... moreThat's what I think as well. It's hardware specification that has to be implemented in factory. In fact that's the reason I replaced brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab A 2016 with older Galaxy Tab S because wanted to have Netflix in HD.

This is hilarious. I never knew that oneplus 5T can't stream in HD. It's begs the question why something like this is not more conveniently mentioned in the reviews. I don't know if any reviewer has mentioned it, and even if it was mentioned, it was obscured because I didn't catch it.

I would definitely not want to buy a phone and then realize that it doesn't support HD (720p) streaming.

Xiaomi's Mi Box has a branch of devices without the DRM keys and i think there is no way to add them via a software update. They need to be installed from factory
