Tech Advisor

The best-value streaming device

from Tech Advisor

Put simply, the Fire TV Stick 4K is a bargain. For very little money you can stream 4K HDR content to your TV no matter which standard it supports. Alexa and the new remote are the icing on the cake.

Superbly-priced 4K HDR streamer

from Pocket-lint

If you want 4K HDR streaming, use Alexa and like Amazon's Prime Video ecosystem then there is nothing better out there. And given how good some Prime content is right now, that makes it a very compelling proposition indeed.

If you’re already on the regular Fire Stick, the new stick doesn’t do enough to justify an upgrade. Yes, it is faster but unless you have a 4K TV, there’s no real benefit and you can always buy the new Voice remote or better still, an Echo Dot to add on voice functionality. As a streaming stick though, the Fire TV Stick 4K is borderline perfect.

After using the Fire TV Stick 4K, I’m convinced that this is the most effective way to turn any dumb TV into a smart TV. I started this review by talking about how TVs have done only one thing since inception and with the Fire TV Stick 4K, they still do only one thing. But the difference is that it outputs video from multiple sources and over the internet, which ties in with a modern lifestyle. The lack of a native YouTube app is a problem, but other Alexa works really well and is capable of understanding your commands and even controlling other smart devices at home.

India Today

A good option for you to get into Amazon's world

from India Today

Once connected to a TV, the FireTV Stick 4K with Alexa Remote becomes a sort of hub around which you can build your digital world. You can pair a speaker or two to the whole set-up, you can turn the TV into a device that doesn't only show you movies or TV shows at tour command but also tells whether of the day.

The best 4K streaming stick you can buy

from Stuff

For the expanded HDR support, it’s worth stepping up from the previous 4K streamer. And it’s also worth the upgrade from the non-4K stick for obvious 4K-related reasons (plus voice control). And if it’s your first Amazon streaming device? You won’t be disappointed.

If you’re going to buy a dedicated video streamer, you want it to do everything – and until now the only one that did that was the Apple TV 4K. But for just £50, the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K has all the apps you need, supports all current HDR formats and throws in Dolby Atmos. That’s an astonishingly good deal, particularly when you factor in the all-round quality of the performance and excellent user-friendliness.
