START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)

I am currently having an amlogic s912 t95z plus android box. Its working okay but lot of times mainly in live streaming it is freezing after 10 min. I've already tried changing the memory, readbufferfactor, curltime and everything in advancesettings but still same issues. I've speed around 60MBs connected to LAN. I saw this thread which says that amlogic s912 is not good. So I am planning to buy another one. My Main intention is watching videos in Kodi without any freeze. Can you please suggest which one to buy. I am in confusion between Mi Box or Amazon Fire TV 2. I like android interface and Mi Box because of its google casting feature (which is really not important as I've already chromecase 1st generation but would be a nice to have feature so that I dont need to switch source in the tv lot of time) but the benchmark shows amazon fire tv 2 is faster but I dont know how fast than Mi Box. My budget is under 100 dollars which should be reliable and strong. I dont have any problem side loading in amazon fire tv 2 either. Please advise. My real deal breaker is performance and reliability. If Mi box can handle that I would love that else Amazon Fire TV 2 or something which is good.
