We have been using Teewe for almost two weeks, the device performance is quite upto mark.
It plays videos, music, photos etc. flawlessly with a single tap using the mobile application. It is also able to stream content from websites like YouTube without any lag or issues. Teewe 2 performed well 720p HD videos without any lag, but when we tested 1080p Full HD videos, it started to show some disturbance and shuttering. this might be due to our slow WiFi connection. If you don’t have an internet connection, you can only play local content from your devices. All users on the local network can share their media content and others can see the listing on their devices, to choose what they would like to play. We tested all popular formats with Teewe and it worked flawlessly. The App is pretty straight-forward and easy to use.
