The Fire TV Stick Vs The Fire TV Stick 4K

Old days have gone past when we used to enjoy watching Black and White TVs. It was such a pleasure watching those characters with a non-realistic screen experience, but the industry has evolved and now multi-purpose TV sets are available in the market.

Today we have a special device for you that will turn your ordinary TV into a Smart TV. Actually, this is a comparison article between the two products, One is the ordinary Fire TV stick and the other one is the newly introduced Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K.

If you want to turn your TV into a modern smart TV then you are the right place. Let’s make the comparison and that will be very helpful for you to decide whether you are going to keep the old one or will order the new one that will be surfaced in October. 

The Fire TV Stick Is 80-Percent Faster

Would you like to have a faster device or continue with a lagging device? The choice is yours. The new product from the Amazon is about 80% faster as compared to its rivals. But now, let us explore.

Its rivals available in the market are packed with a 1.5GHz quad-core chip inside. One the other hand the Amazon Fire TV Stick is equipped with a 1.7GHz processor that’s 80-percent faster than the Fire TV Stick, which is a non-4k version of the series.

Carry Support For Dolby Vision and HDR10+

Another important aspect of the smartphone is that it will carry support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+. On the other hand, its competitor is lacking this facility and Amazon seems to be no hurry to introduce this feature to the non-4K version of the device, which means that the video quality of the new Fire TV Stick will be awesome.

Echo Dot speaker:

The upcoming device is packed with a powerful Echo Dot Speaker that will be used to control some basic functions like playback and launch video in apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu. Though you will not have the luxuries that you normally get with the Fire Cube TV. It means that you will not have the cable box, TV volume, and A/V gear voice controls that are offered by the Fire Cube TV. But still, this enough that you can enjoy with this new device that is called Fire TV stick 4K.

But getting this Echo Dot you will have a bit more than the normal and that is 80$ which is not a huge amount as looking at the facilities of the Echo Dot.

Amazon has packed its new device with amazing features and that is obvious as well because you have to stay ahead of the competitors if you want to stay in the market.

The rival of the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4k is Roku that has also introduced a new Fire TV stick 4K with a surprising price of 40$. Though the price tag of the company looks very attractive it is lacking some main features that you will see in the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K. For example, it is not packing TV volume and power controls don’t support HDR10+ or Dolby Vision and use an aging 802.11n Wi-Fi adapter that should be 802.11ac.

Support 4k

This is one of the main differences between the Fire TV Stick 4K and a normal Fire TV Stick. These days the quality of video matters a lot. The non-4K version has got a very good display set up and allows the user to full HD video but the 4K factor is missing. And this is the main reason the new device will outclass the older one.

The length of the device is a bit larger than it should be. Though it does not matter that much if you have a wall TV that is very closed to the wall then it may create some problems.

To avoid this problem the device comes with an extra wired plugin that is not much longer but still provides enough length to bend the device. Thus you will be able to keep the TV set close to the wall.

The Fire TV Stick 4K will ship on October 31st which means that we are very close to the shipment date of the device. Though the price of the old variant, that is called Fire TV Stick, is a bit lower than this Pro version.

But the difference is not much that you will not able to afford. The Fire TV Stick will cost you only 10$ but surpassingly, the new device will be available at 50$.

The difference is just minor which means that only 10 bucks can’t stop you from getting a high-end variant that will ensure high-end performance with the best display quality.

Some Of The Negative Aspects Of Device

One of the most aspects of the device is that it is an Amazon centric device. It means that you every now and then you will see pop-ups and ads about Amazon. This is something not good about the device.

But it does not mean that you can’t get rid of these unwanted ads. For stopping them to pop up again and again you need to go to the settings and click on the Preferences and stop these unwanted ads and pop-ups.

The length of the device is also a bit longer than one can expect but the company has got a solution for this reason as well.

The price of the Fire TV Stick 4K is just a bit high as compared to the previous variant but that is manageable and it will not cause that much difference.

Final Words

If you are looking for a device that provides you with everything that needs means, no lagging, high speed, best video quality that is 4k then this will be the best for you to grab. Just a 10$ difference is something everyone will like to own it. If you like the article please leave us a comment in the below section that will be greatly appreciated.
