Alexa is Amazon’s own voice assistant, much like Siri or Google Assistant. The remote is Alexa compatible, which means that you can press the voice button and just tell the remote what you want to watch. Alexa is very advanced and takes dozens of different voice commands. 

You can simply say “Alexa, show me sports” and all different sports channels open up. It does not end there, you can operate hundreds of Alexa compatible apps. You can check the weather, order food from Zomato, all using voice. Get ready to be very lazy.

Value for Money:

You can own the lowest model for as low as 30 dollars. The 4K version costs just 10 dollars more. If you buy a smart TV, that can easily cost you more than 150 dollars and still have lesser features as compared to the Amazon Fire stick. This device is worth every penny.
