The new Fire TV Stick 4K is sold in Germany. We first looked at the new HDMI plug-in streaming plug.
The new version of Amazon also instantly clears the Fire TV product category. Square Fire TV Box is no longer available, customers can now choose from the 39.99 euro first-generation Fire TV Stick with Full HD resolution and the new 4K model for € 59.99.
The FireTv Stick 4K 20 Euros extra charge is not only reflected in the highest 4K resolution and is supported by Dolby Vision and HDR10 +, but with the built-in 1.7 GHz quad-core processor you also receive considerably faster hardware. In addition, the latest version of Alexa's voice remote control is a small, but extremely desirable improvement, at first glance. The remote control, which can be purchased separately, now has not only the on / off button, but also the volume control and volume control. A button that can be used to control the volume of the TV without the use of a second remote control.
The ability to use the remote control for Alexa voice commands as well as the ability to use Fire TV Stick 4K with echo speakers are already familiar with previous generations of Fire Devices. Although it seems a bit more difficult for me, Alexa's voice remote control, in my opinion, is great, which makes it much faster and safer to operate than Apple Siri Remote. Apple's attempt to simultaneously integrate a mini game controller can not convince me.
The Fire TV Stick 4K is good for two centimeters longer than its predecessor, with a size of 108 x 30 millimeters, and again so wide that it blocks most HDMI cables directly next to it. The scope of supply includes a short adapter cable that can be used to remove the latter and can be flexibly positioned. In addition, a power supply and a micro USB cable are included, since without a separate power supply the image on the TV input is black.
With regard to self-use, everything remains unchanged, with the exception of additional video and audio formats. Stick is recommended as the perfect match for the Amazon Prime subscription, of course you can also use streaming video footage like Netflix, DAZN or TV channel apps. In addition, music services such as Spotify are available for download on the Amazon App Store.
The Fire TV Stick 4K is available at Amazon's purchase price of € 59.99. Within the campaign, buying two sticks within a limited time is 10 euros.
