Our son is Hearing Impaired. Prior to viewing movies on Amazon Prime's Streaming Service our son used to see only the Movies with hardly any knowledge about the dialogues that were going on, with subtitles for the movies he has really started enjoying the movies as well. I appreciate this feature the most.
1.0 out of 5 starsRemote control isn’t working in just 2 months of my purchase
28 September 2018
Just want to keep this feedback simple. The remote control that comes with the bundle has stopped working in just 2 months of my purchase and isn’t functional inspite of changing the batteries. This is pretty frustrating. No idea what to do. Worst, Amazon sells it separately for Rs 1999.
The quality of the product is amazing. The experience of watching everything on HD is fantastic. It is super userfriendly. The remote voice recognition gets it bang on while providing the list of options. I gave up my cable connection owing to the varied range of content offered through this technology!!
Firstly I bought google chromecast last year. Then I bought amazon fire tv stick. Fire Tv stick is much better and more userfriendly as compared to google chromecast. Pros of Fire TV stick: Very nice Bluetooth connectivity (Even in long distance) Very userfriendly Can be controlled by Phone although remote is available
Cons Volume control not available on fire tv remote :( Battries discharge fast Some apps need updation
After 17 months of great Service, my fire stick breathed it's last, trapped in its own dreams, booting and rebooting, still trying to optimise it's system. You redefine d entertainment for me. I'm addicted to streaming now more than T V. Said good bye to piracy. Made my dumb TV smart. I wish you had more juice in you, 3-4 years atleast. I wish you had volume control on remote and better power management. Wish 3rd party developers on your store had more sense to build userfriendly interfaces. But my boy it was a hell of ride. Sayonara.
Very Gd product from Amazon, ReallyFire on the tv, Easy to access, Very userfriendly, Easy installation, looks classy just Go for it.. Everyone at home of different age groups will Enjoy madi.. But drawback is u u need to have Min 10mbs of Internet speed. One more Lag is - It does not have Mirroring or Casting option, though an option is seen on the screen, Hope Amazon will resolve this issue at earliest.
The day I brough Firestick I am fruitfully passing my time with complete enjoyment. PROS: 1. Able to play Amazon Movies. 2. Able to play Youtube Videos 3. Netflix, Jio Cinema, ZEE5, endless list 4. Remote with Microphone so you can search easily 5. Wireless display that can mirror your Phone to TV CONS: 1. Typing using remote is a a little difficult. 2. Amazon Firestick APP is not userfriendly.
A must buy for a HDTV if you want to make it special and load with unlimited content and options to go thru. The amazon fire stick is just awesome. It's simple and easy to install. The gui is very well designed and is userfriendly. Being a prime customer, have lots and lots of options to watch from and also have option of browsing the internet, facebook live and etc etc. The remote is super sleek and easy navigational options along with voice feature is nice. All in all, very happy that I bought this, that too on discount price during amazon the great indian festival offer and satisfied with the product!!
First of all I would like to inform that I returned the product after a weeks usage as it required high data speeds to play without buffering. My internet speed of 50mbps wasn't sufficient. It's an amazing device if it can get a good internet speed. I didn't find the remote usage userfriendly. Quality of the hardware is very good. Make sure Ur TV has multiple HDMI ports to accommodate fire stick dedicatedly before buying one.
Definitely a good buy!!! I wanted to convert my non smart tv to a smart one and the only option that came to my mind was fire tv stick. Here i would like to elaborate on the pros and cons of this item. Pros 1. Availability of almost all video streaming apps 2. Availability of the silk browser which helps you browse anything just like you do in google 3. If you have an amazon prime account, then what else you need. Some people in my friends' curcle even say they dont have a DTH connection as they have this device and a prime account. Well I wouldnt say the same but its definitely is useful. May be it would reduce your DTH subscriptions rates 4. A friendlyuser interface and easy to install 5. Picture quality is definitely great and if you own a 4K tv then you can be rest assured for a fantabulous tv watching experience Cons 1. Non availability of you tube app was disappointing for me or may be i didnt find it (may be thats my bad if thats so) 2. Volume control button on the remote- the remote does not have a volume control button which makes me shift to the tv remote whenever i need to adjust the volume but i dont think its a major con 3. Voice search is a good feature but the device not able to recognize regional names was a bit disappointing. May be amazon can think of developing the recognition of the regional languages
Apart from what I have discussed above I dont see any major cons in this device except for an unlimited internet connectivity. If you are a budgeted user of your home internet or mobile internet then this device could be a little out of your budget, not unless you can manage it smartly. So the verdict is its a great device and I believe a modern home needs a modern way of living and this could be one of it. Thank you amazon for such a great device. Happy streaming to everyone!!!
The Firestick is a veritable masterpiece. You can not compare it with anything else in the market. It is beyond comparison. With Amazon Fire stick in your hand there is no end to entertainment, no end to infortainment and there is no end to learning. You can go to the end of the world with this cute Userfriendly gadget and have your full of entertainment. With a free subscription to a wide range of applications you will have a great experience. Hats off to Amazon for the fast delivery. Thank you very much.
