Android TV Box to be used with TLC TV (Netflix, Stan,,,etc)

Hi

I have got TLC TV 6 years old it is Linux OS.

I am thinking to use it as Smart TV by attaching Android TV Box (HDMI cabel) ,,,,,I tried to read about it but I am confused with below :

1- Can a spare phone like Samsung S10 do the same job as Android TV box in watching Netflix Stan, Disney in 4K or higher quality ?

2- If I have to buy Android TV Box ,,,,can you help me to recommend 3 of them ?

Thx

The Roku Express 4K is $29.88 at Walmart.com. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Roku-Expr...able/651641821 That's about the cheapest you can a 4K streaming device from one of the major manufacturers.

If you really want an android device, you can get a Chromecast with Google TV 4K for $49.99 at Best Buy. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/chromec...?skuId=6425976

The Roku or Google Chromecast will have better video quality and quality of life than trying to use your phone.
