This is my personal experience with this piece of hardware. My goal was to boot LE from internal cause I don't need android, just a good stable Kodi box.

I've had good luck with the following for a cheap LE Kodi box.
For $45 its a great deal.
X96-Amlogic-S905X-Quad-Core-2G16G-Android-6_0-Marshmallow-Wifi-HDMI-4K-Kodi-TV-Box-Android-Mini-PC from Bang Good
It has 905x, 2 Gigs RAM & 16 Gigs eMMC, WIFI, 100Mb ethernet port, IR remote.
It will boot LE from the MicroSD card for dual boot Android / LE or installs just fine to internal NAND.
Install Terminal Emulator from Play Store.
Run Terminal Emulator, type "reboot update" and it'll boot LE from MicroSD.
Install http://kszaq.libreelec.tv/s905/8.0.1e/ to the MicroSD card,
For more info about installing, read the following link.

Once you enable "Control with External Devices" in Kodi yatse works just great from your
cell phone as another remote control.
I installed Confluence skin as my family is more comfortable with it.
Audio Passthru works just fine to my Sony receiver.

Just my $.02.

Does it have Bluetooth?
