Amazon Fire TV Stick Review

This is the latest version of Amazon Fire TV Stick. With 1 GB of memory and 8 GB of internal storage this is going to be quite handy for streaming media. The price is very reasonable, although I am not going to give it a 5 star rating for it’s design.

This time the Fire TV Stick includes the Alexa Voice Search. This is the best thing of it. Now you can search your popular TV shows with the remote and even order pizza.

If you compare the Fire TV box, definitely that one is better. But, on this price this is a good bargain.
