Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K review

Is it worth upgrading to the new 4K-flavoured Amazon streamer?

Amazon has packed 4K into a streaming device before, but it was a box, not a stick. Now though, Amazon has got 4K, Dolby Vision and HDR10+ support into a tiny little streaming stick.

The new Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K has a faster processor than its predecessor, and comes with the new Alexa Voice Remote, which can also be picked up separately for £29.99. The TV stick and remote combo is yours for a very reasonable £49.99.

But is it worth buying over the many other streaming sticks on the market? Let’s find out.
