Fire TV Stick 4K – Most Powerful Streaming Device

Fire TV Stick 4K allows you to enjoy a more complete 4K Ultra HD streaming experience.

It turn any TV into a smart one for cheap.

In our list of Top 5 Best Streaming Devices, it ranked at #1.


Design
Fire TV Stick 4K comes with blocky design.

It`s a (relatively) wide rectangle, measuring 3.9 inches long including the HDMI port. It's also pretty thick at 0.55 inch, which can make plugging into a wall mounted TV a bit hard.

The remote is pretty ergonomic. While it's not nearly as minimalistic as an Apple TV 4K remote, the number of buttons doesn't overwhelm you.


Capability
Fire TV Stick 4K is powered with a 1.7GHz quad-core processor making it 80% more powerful than the standard Fire TV Stick.

You can zip around the on-screen interface at speed and it’s also very quick to respond to commands.

Home screens are bright, colorful, and feature prominent artwork advertising Amazon’s latest content, menus are bold, sharp and clear, and operation throughout is snappy and smooth.

Content ranging from 1080p up to 4K (depending on the source) looked crisp and sharp. Color reproduction, accuracy, and lifelikeness was stellar with 4K shows from Amazon Prime and Netflix.

It sounds good with standard 5.1 and even stereo, too.

Alexa voice control is surprisingly powerful on the Fire TV Stick 4K. Searching for programmes by actor, title or other details is really easy. Just hold down the microphone button at the top of the remote and speak aloud what you're searching for.

Pros:
• No lag.
• Easy to set and use.
• Smooth performance.
• Responses are lightning fast.
• Fast performance and excellent stream quality.
• Broad HDR format support, plus HDR menus and SDR-to-HDR conversion.

Cons:
• No Google Play apps.
• No proper YouTube application.
• A bit bulky for a streaming stick.
• The menu system is still too bloated.
• No Vudu means few choices for Dolby Vision movies.
