As I recall--the testing of N2 vs the C2 showed 4 times the performance. I'm not sure which version of the C2 that applies to.
With your C2--which version of Linux are you using? or are you using Android.
The CoreELEC (CE )seems like the way to go. I don't think Android has the groups that are trying to improve it, that there are with Linux. LibreElec did a lot of work with the C2, as well as CE as I recall. As I recall there was mentioned on the CE forum--Kodi is also helping with the N2--perhaps making changes to their Linux code to support it, or maybe just helping
The CE Team (in Germany btw) seems very helpful and responsive. All the team members were provided early "samples" of the N2 by HardKernel (HK).
If you are interested in of the HK N2 website--surf over here: https://forum.odroid.com/viewforum.php?f=175
On the odroid.com (as well as the CE nightly builds site), there are already issues with the USB3 speed, which is acknowledged by HK--maybe only corrected with a new kernel!.
If it matters, they are from S Korea--not China--which hopefully means better communication with users.
The real questions I have is, regarding the N2 AND the mods CE are making to it:
1.What is the plan/goals for features? I have not found any.
2. Will it be like the Shield and Zidoo--where the specs and what you get are 2 different things--ie no real Forced Subs
2a. Will they develop it so it works with most of the goals and get to work on the next project--again like the other boxes from China. Yea the Vero+ get finally got an update--but it took a LONG time--acording to the thread.
3. HK is already working an a new version of the Kernel for the N2. IF CE incorporates this how much work will they have to do, to incorporate those changes.
4. How long will they support that?
I have not found on the CE site any answers to the above--it certainly does not mean they are not there.
