Amazon Fire TV Stick (2017) review

 

The easiest way to jump onto the smart TV bandwagon

Loads of streaming services and apps ; A fast, responsive UI ; Easy to set up ; Voice recognition works well with Indian accents ; Bluetooth support for accessories

No Alexa in India ; Integrated search could be better

An ace streaming stick with loads of apps and tuned-for-India voice search. What’s not to like?

Amazon Fire TV Stick Review: A Lot Less Money for a Little Less Speed

 

The Amazon Fire TV Stick is the bargain version of Amazon's super-fast voice search-enabled Fire TV. The HDMI version certainly sacrifices a lot of things

Amazon Fire TV Stick review: super streamer now with added Alexa

 

It may be small in size but this streamer is kind of a big deal

Lots of content ; Alexa works pretty well ; Skills are useful in front of the TV

You really need to have Prime ; Needs a charger ; No 4K

Amazon Fire TV Stick review: Stick it to 'em

 

While it has been available in the US since the end of last year, the Amazon Fire TV Stick finally makes its way across the pond for release in the UK and, thanks to a combination of attractive price point and rich feature set, could end up being a...

Speedy and smooth operation, great library of casual games, beefy processor and RAM, good sized storage for such a device

Requires the included power adapter for use, some UK catch-up services missing, only get the most with Prime membership

Amazon has made its intentions clear with the Fire TV Stick. It has priced it aggressively (a touch more expensive than the Chromecast, quite a bit cheaper than the Roku) but offers a lot more for the money – certainly in terms of internal tech.

Amazon Fire TV Stick

 

The new Amazon Fire TV Stick is the service's second generation of its cheapest video streaming device. It aims itself squarely at rivals such as Google Chromecast Ultra and Roku Streaming Stick, squeezing all of its streaming know-how into a...

They might be subtle improvements, but the new Fire TV Stick is all the better for having them.

Amazon Fire TV Stick With Alexa Voice Remote

 

Amazon's Fire TV Stick is faster and less expensive than ever, and comes with an Alexa-enabled voice remote out of the box, making it the best budget-friendly media streamer you can buy.

Inexpensive. Comes with a voice remote. Voice search and Amazon Alexa are very useful. Fast performance.

Missing some notable streaming services.

If you want 4K support and a slightly better selection of streaming media services, the Roku Premiere+ is our Editors' Choice for 4K media streamers—but it's more than twice the price of the Fire TV Stick.

Amazon Fire TV Stick (2017) review

 

A brilliant, cheap streamer with added Alexa

Loads to watch ; Easy to set up ; Alexa works a treat

Cheaper alternatives are available ; Integrated search could be better

Amazon Fire TV Stick With Alexa Voice Remote review

 

Amazon's Alexa rules the home voice-tech world while rivals Google, Apple and Microsoft race to keep up . The giant retailer doesn't make phones ( anymore ), but it's building the talking digital assistant into devices beyond its blockbuster Echo and...

The $40 Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote is one of the least expensive devices to stream video from Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, HBO, Sling TV and other online services. It's just as responsive as other devices, meaning it's lightning-fast, and...

The current user interface pushes Amazon content too aggressively. Alexa is less useful than with always-on devices. Unlike Roku there's no dedicated app for any other a la carte video service, like Vudu or Fandango Now, beyond Amazon's.

The fast, affordable new Fire TV stick is great for fans of Amazon who'll use its voice capabilities, and an excellent value, but it's still not as good as Roku.

Amazon Fire TV Stick review: Getting what you paid for

 

As streaming apps get more advanced, Amazon's low-cost TV dongle doesn't feel future-proof.

Convenient access to Amazon Prime video ; Voice-controlled remote on the cheap ; Alexa integration for home control and other applications

Performance hangups abound ; Voice search doesn’t play well with third-party apps ; Sports fans will notice the absence of 60-frames-per-second playback

Should anyone buy the Fire TV Stick? Maybe, if you’re looking to spend as little as possible for the best experience with Amazon Prime Video. Just keep in mind that the Fire TV set-top box is a much faster and more capable device. It’ll cost more...
