[Discussion] [Poll] Patchwall vs Android Tv

As of now many of you have spent well enough time to judge and form an opinion on Patchwall UI. There are many issues with it starting from lack of Amazon prime video and Netflix. Lack of customization no way to set custom wallpaper and screensavers.
On the other hand we have Xiaomi's homemade mi box one of the very few available official android tv box with many great features.
So what do you guys think. Which one does it better?

Patchwall is the dumbest TV OS not the smartest as Xiaomi claims.
No app store.
no Google play services.
screen mirroring lags alot.

if you tried to install apk's of the apps, then most apps needs Google play services to start.
Google Play Store and Play services are required to make this TV smartest till then it is a dumbest TV.

I wonder if you guys have used Android TV OS. If you had then you'd realise that the app store for Android TV is appalling! You would barely get any app there. So far you just have Youtube, Netflix, Hotstar, Twitch. Plus you can install Kodi, MX Player, VLC. There is absolutely no reason of why and what it does better than Patchwall OS at this moment at the least. Considering the pre-loaded and sideloaded applications in Patchwall at the moment, I do not think Android TV OS is any better.

P.S. : I own a Xiaomi MI TV 4 55 inch (Patchwall OS) and also use a Xiaomi Mi TV Box 3 (Android TV OS). I barely use patchwall as the TV box can play and stream stuff at 4K with HDR. But if you compare the two OS as platforms, they can't be called out as better than the other!

I have bought a MI 43"LED tv, also ordered wall mount seperately.
1) Is free installation include wallmount?
2) Will the authorized personnel from MI at the time of TV installation bring wall mount with him that I have to take mandatorily or can I order it seperately from MI website?
Please clear the confusion as ap.
