    One advantage of the Minix compared to nVidia is that it uses standard Android with the normal Play Store. On nVidia Shield you are restricted to Android TV apps (or you could try to sideload).

What's my model number?

There are several ways to locate your model number:

Option 1
On your device, go to Settings, then "About device" and scroll down to "Model number"
Option 2
Often times you can view the model number inside the device, by removing the battery

Using Samsung's model/serial number location tool
