Amazon Fire TV Stick (2020) Review: A HD streamer in a 4K world


The Fire TV Stick with Alexa remote (2020) is another fine streaming player from Amazon. The addition of HDR is worth having, as is Atmos.

HDR and Atmos support ; Good picture quality ; Lots of apps ; Alexa remote ; Improved interface

HLG doesn’t appear to work ; Fairly Prime-centric ; Limited to 1080p resolution

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max review


Pushing the streaming stick form factor to the max

4K HDR streaming ; Access to Amazon Luna ; Dolby Vision / Atmos / HDR10+ ; Voice remote with Alexa

Too many sponsored ads ; Homescreen previews are low-res ; Search still could be better ; Luna can be unstable

Amazon Fire TV Stick (2020) review


With the Amazon Fire TV Stick (2020), Amazon's HD streamer gets a much-appreciated upgrade.

60fps and HDR Dolby Atmos audio Volume controls

Lite model is cheaper Persistent ads Only HD

The Amazon Fire TV Stick (2020) is the latest refresh of the standard Fire TV streaming stick, adding a host of new improvements such as HDR, a 60fps frame rate, and compatibility with Dolby Atmos audio. There's now a cheaper iteration in the Fire TV...

Amazon Fire TV Stick (3rd Generation) review


The middle child of the Amazon streaming stick family

Strong app offering ; Improved UI ; Excellent HDR performance

SDR picture could be more subtle ; 4K model only costs a little more

The 3rd Generation Fire TV Stick is a capable video streamer, but it drops at an awkward price point

Amazon Fire TV Stick review


If you're an Amazon customer the Fire TV stick is a no-brainer, but does it have broad appeal?

Easy to use ; Speedy operation ; Low price

Missing Now TV and 4oD services ; Remote has no voice control ; Amazon hard-sell is a little strong

A lovely little streaming device and a no-brainer for Amazon customers

Amazon Fire TV Stick review: is this small streamer ready for the big league?


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

Tiny ; unobtrusive device ; Cheap ; Lots of content ; lots of apps

You really need to have Prime ; Needs a charger

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max review: Top dog for streaming?


The 4K Fire TV Stick is back - but how much has changed in this Max version and is it worth the upgrade?

Great remote ; Alexa integration ; Supports the latest standards ; Really slick and fast to use

No Google TV/Play Movies ; No support for Google Casting ; Discovery a bit heavy on the Amazon content

This stick offers one of the best ways to stream content: it's easy to use, there's access to loads of streaming services, and integration with Alexa's Skills means it does a little more than some.

Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite review: Why budget can be best


The Fire TV Stick Lite is Amazon's latest streaming stick, part of a minor re-alignment of the range.

Fast and responsive ; Well priced ; Often available on great deals.

Remote lacks TV controls. Even the new interface is still cluttered.

Well priced, fast and highly capable, the Fire TV Lite is a no brainer if you want to buy into the Fire TV ecosystem and you only need Full HD.

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.
