Huawei HiKey 960 is the best alternative to Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Foundation revolutionized when it released its Lillipuit programmable units with the same name.

Since then, many have envied this idea and tried to promote their own units as better than Raspberry Pi, but they have lost at the price, since most of these implementations were too expensive in relation to Raspberry Pi and their speed did not excuse the price difference, and as a result, many people still continue to prefer Raspberry Pi.

Huawei's solution comes to convince us that it is worth giving the money it asks for, as it gives us very good features. Based on Android, HiKey 960 has an 8-core Kirin 960 processor, 3GB LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB of storage space.

It also contains the Mali G71 GPU, making it capable of delivering 4K graphics while offering HDMI 1.2a (Full HD) connection. It also has a built-in Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac adapter, Bluetooth 4.1, three USB ports (one USB-C type), one microSD slot and two ports of 40 and 60-pin.

Its price is at $239, but for someone looking for a powerful mini-system, HiKey 960 is ideal.
