Amazon customer reviews on Amazon Fire TV stick
- By Free Young- 3 stars out of 5
“The product is good but after 2 weeks of usage the remote stopped working. I contacted technical support and after few trouble shooting steps it has found that the remote need to be replaced but the remote is out of stock. So I returned the item.
I would like to add few more things.
If you are an avid Hollywood watcher, this is for you. Amazon prime video is rich in Hollywood content but the content from regional languages are less. Hotstar lists few non prime videos in fire stick than it’s App counterpart. Youtube videos lack of resolution choosing option, rest of the features are same as in App. Amazon prime video streaming is super awesome, even in low bandwidth it won’t show a buffering indicator rather it reduce the quality which is not bad. It will be bit difficult for us to type using the remote and the voice command will only work for few apps other than Amazon prime videos.”
- By Krishna B.
“If you do not have an Android TV or smart TV, you should buy this without a second thought.
Why use Amazon Fire TV stick?
Imagine turning on your phone/laptop, and within seconds, using the TV as an external display – without having to touch a single other device, even if the TV was switched off. (Apple devices would cost about 60 rupees extra to get this feature)
If you have a Netflix/Hotstar subscription, you can use them and Prime Video all on the same platform. With the right subscriptions and internet connection, you can ditch cable TV altogether.
You can install Firefox browser on this device and use YouTube through that.
Voice remote spares you the pain of having to type everything one letter at a time. Extremely useful when you want to find a movie quickly.
If you’re contemplating buying this, stop thinking and just go for it. You won’t regret it one bit.”
