The Maze Kodi Build is known for its lightweight nature (~100 MB) and simple user interface. In spite of that, it packs a massive number of video streaming add-ons. It includes Exodus Redux, DeathStar, The Magic Dragon, and many more.
With Maze, you get to enjoy Live TV, movies, TV series, sports, fitness, music content. Both on-demand streaming and live TV works flawlessly. The video quality maxes out at 1080p and it looks decent. On the other hand, live TV barely manages to hit 720p resolution in most cases.
You can also toggle between adult and family-friendly filters to include or exclude adult content from the suggestions. This is a powerful tool especially when you have children on the TV.
The build is well-maintained and receives regular updates. You can install the Maze build on Kodi from the Maze Wizard. As previously mentioned, it is very lightweight compared to other Kodi builds while still managing to retain all the core functionality. It is suitable for low-end streaming devices with less memory on-board.
Blue Magic Build
Blue Magic Kodi build has gained quite a reputation recently because of its flexibility in terms of features and user interface. Not every Kodi builds out there work out as good as the Blue Magic build.
It comes with some of the most popular add-ons such as Magic Dragon, DeathStar, cCloud TV, Yoda, Seren, Sports Classic, UK Turk’s, etc. This gives you access to the latest movies, TV shows, web series, documentaries, sports and popular live TV channels from a single place. The stream quality is respectable with the options between 720p or 1080p. Though you should not expect too much from the live TV options.
The user interface is also great. All the content is appropriately organized into different groups: Sports, Kids, Movies, TV shows, and Live TV. Simply highlight any of these options to get recommended suggestions.
You can install this build from the Luxury Build Wizard, and it is compatible with both Kodi v17.6 Krypton and Kodi v18.0 Leia.
Xontech build is another great Kodi 18.5 Leia build. If you have a 4K streaming device like an NVIDIA Shield or Amazon Firestick 4K Edition, then the Xontech Kodi build is probably one of the best options for you. At an enormous size of 340 MB, it compromises nothing but adds extra features to help you tweak your TV viewing experience.
It integrates a vast number of third-party video streaming add-ons, including Sports Classic, , cCloud, Deceit, Limitless, Destiny, Unhinged, magic dragon, IT, and dozens more.
The Xontech Build offers users the latest movies and exclusive web series in 4K Ultra HD quality, even 3D for a few ones. You will also find live TV option with a decent number of popular channels, which is actually comparable to an average IPTV service.
The user interface has a simple layout consisting of menus and submenus, though I personally don’t find the UI design eye-catching. Other than that, the font and icons are easily legible. You can either choose to search content or filter your preference by genre, year and people.
Note that the Xontech Kodi builds only support Kodi v18.0 or later. You can grab it from the Falcon Builds Wizard. I recommended you update your Kodi to the latest version because xontech is one of the best Kodi 18.5 Builds I ever used.

The Pink Kodi build is actually another fork from the EzzerMacs Wizard we just talked about. As the name suggests, it basically has all the features and add-ons of the EzzerMacs build, but in a slightly aesthetic neon-pink themed user interface.
There are some extra add-ons you will find in the Pink Kodi build. These are Chains of Absolution, Luxray Prime, FDJ.HD, Ghost, Maverick TV, M-E-T-V, Titan, The Crew, Deceit, Sports Streams, The Endzone, and more.

Best Way to Use Kodi Builds in a Secure way
Before Streaming through Kodi, Make sure you use a VPN. Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and the government are tracking all your Internet Activity. If found streaming copyrighted & illegal content on your Kodi, you could get into serious trouble. Many people have received Legal notice for violating the law.
If you are planning to stream content via any of the Kodi addons or Kodi builds, I strongly recommend to Use IPVanish VPN and hide your identity to stay anonymously. I personally use IPVanish VPN to protect my online privacy and it also helps me unblock geo-restricted content.
