Amazon Fire TV Cube review

 

The smartest video streamer you can buy

Natural, balanced picture ; Punchy audio ; Supports all HDR formats ; Adds Alexa control to your system

Beaten for sharpness and dark detail ; Apple TV 4K sounds fuller

A good video streamer elevated by doubling up as a voice-controlled universal remote for your whole system

Fire TV Cube review

 

The best Fire TV device yet, and now it controls your TV too

Alexa can now control your TV ; 4K HDR content is superb ; Great app selection ; Fastest Fire TV device yet

Some equipment doesn't offer full functionality ; No HDMI cable included

As long as your equipment plays ball, the Fire TV Cube offers a slick way to control your TV with your voice, while serving up the best streaming services and all the smarts of Alexa in one clever package.

Fire TV Cube (2nd gen) review: Control your TV and Sky box with Alexa

 

When it's set up, Fire TV Cube is a neat solution to voice-control your TV and Sky box. But does it make more sense to buy than the Fire TV Stick?

Voice control of your TV ; Works well with Sky ; Brilliant with Amazon Prime and Netflix ; Dolby Vision/HDR support

Setup woes ; Inconsistent app experience ; Far-field mics need to get better ; Not good enough to leave your remotes behind (yet)

A neat solution to voice-control your TV and Sky box, but the setup is a hit-and-miss experience and with the Fire TV Stick 4K at less than half the price, it's tough to slate or recommend the new Cube.

Amazon Fire TV Cube (2nd Generation) review

 

With Dolby Vision and a new Hexacore processor, Amazon's new Fire TV Cube is faster and more flexible than ever before.

4K HDR playback TV/AV control center Includes a Voice Remote Native YouTube app

HDMI cable not included Home screen is mostly Amazon content Language recognition isn't perfect

The all-new Fire TV Cube is, by far, our favorite Amazon streaming device – better in so many ways than the Amazon Fire TV Cube that was released in 2017. The processor upgrade and inclusion of Dolby Vision are great new additions and, in spite of a...

Amazon Fire TV Cube review

 

The Amazon Fire TV Cube is the most premium and feature-packed model in Amazon's range of Fire TV streaming devices – and it just got a much bigger audience. The Fire TV Cube, previously only available in the US, is now set to come to Canada, UK,...

4K HDR playback TV/AV control center Still includes a remote

No Dolby Vision (though it's coming) Requires said remote

The Amazon Fire TV Cube is an intrepid experiment for the future of home entertainment. It makes a strong case for TV voice control, but Alexa’s limitations in natural language understanding – and sometimes basic playback controls – are enough to...

Amazon Fire TV Cube

 

It's a cross between a Fire TV and an Amazon Echo: the Fire TV Cube lets you use Alexa to control your TV, sound bar and play videos from YouTube, Netflix and - of course Amazon Prime Video.

Amazon Fire TV Cube review (2019): Alexa's streaming box grows up

 

The new Amazon Fire TV Cube is much improved over last year's model. It now has YouTube and YouTube TV, support for Dolby Vision and HDR+, and a lot more video viewing commands than before. With a hexa-core processor on board, it's also a lot faster at...

Dolby Vision and HDR+ ; Can handle most video viewing commands ; Support for all the major streaming services ; Much faster response times

Sometimes prefers some apps over others ; Can’t voice search for channels or content on YouTube TV

Amazon Fire TV Cube review

 

Amazon Fire TV Cube goes far beyond being an Echo/Fire TV stick hybrid. Thanks to HDMI CEC control, an IR blaster, and a new user interface, the Fire TV Cube can take even the most complicated entertainment system and simplify it so just about anyone...

Unprecedented hardware control ; Lightning fast processor ; Intuitive voice recognition ; 4K, HDR, Dolby Atmos ; Ethernet adapter included

No Dolby Vision

No. The Roku Ultra is also an awesome streaming set-top box, and we love some of the app integration and search function the Roku platform affords, but when it comes to hardware control and voice control, there’s nothing out there like the Fire TV Cube.

Amazon Fire TV Cube

 

Amazon's latest media streamer combines the best features of the Fire TV with the hands-free voice control and Alexa capabilities of the Echo, in a single device.

Hands-free voice control with Alexa. Lots of connected apps and services. Far-field microphone array can understand your voice over TV audio. Voice control works for home theater as well as smart home devices.

Does not support Google Play content. No Dolby Vision capability. Alexa can occasionally get confused by syntax.

Bottom Line: The Amazon Fire TV Cube combines the best features of the Fire TV with the hands-free voice control and Alexa capabilities of the Echo, in a single media streamer.
