Amazon Fire TV Cube review

 

Unprecedented hardware control ; Lightning fast processor ; Intuitive voice recognition ; 4K, HDR, Dolby Atmos ; Ethernet adapter included

No Dolby Vision

No. The Roku Ultra is also an awesome streaming set-top box, and we love some of the app integration and search function the Roku platform affords, but when it comes to hardware control and voice control, there’s nothing out there like the Fire TV Cube.

Amazon Fire TV Cube

 

Amazon's latest media streamer combines the best features of the Fire TV with the hands-free voice control and Alexa capabilities of the Echo, in a single device.

Hands-free voice control with Alexa. Lots of connected apps and services. Far-field microphone array can understand your voice over TV audio. Voice control works for home theater as well as smart home devices.

Does not support Google Play content. No Dolby Vision capability. Alexa can occasionally get confused by syntax.

Bottom Line: The Amazon Fire TV Cube combines the best features of the Fire TV with the hands-free voice control and Alexa capabilities of the Echo, in a single media streamer.

Amazon Fire TV Cube Review: Alexa, hide the remote

 

Alexa is coming for your living room and, just like the Borg cube that the Amazon Fire TV Cube might remind you of, resistance is futile. Amazon's virtual assistant may not be an entirely new addition to the TV experience, thanks to integrations into...

Alexa makes a capable media navigator ; Setup is straightforward ; Still get many of Alexa's other Skills ; Competitively priced

Not a fully-fledged Echo ; IR can still be awkward ; Built-in speaker is weedy ; Full Alexa support is app-dependent

Amazon Fire TV Cube review: Neat hardware, but Alexa can't keep up

 

The Fire TV Cube wants to replace your remote with voice commands, but Alexa isn't up for the challenge.

Launching videos with Alexa is glorious—when it works ; Voice control for TV volume, sound systems, and cable boxes is a nice touch ; Visual Alexa responses turn the TV into a powerful Echo-like device

Alexa is embarrassingly bad at genre search and inconsistent at playback controls ; No volume control on the remote ; Ads and promotional materials clutter the on-screen interface

When Alexa understands and executes on a voice command, it’s among the most satisfying interactions you’ll have with your television. And Amazon’s assistant is at its best when you’re requesting specific shows and TV channels.

Amazon Fire TV Cube Review: Alexa Shines as Voice Remote

 

Amazon's previous streaming devices have scratched at greatness, but the Fire TV Cube's union of Alexa and Fire TV makes for a harmonious marriage. Not only is it excellent at pumping out brilliant picture quality, but its ability to switch between...

Alexa's new home entertainment hardware controls ; Excellent 4K HDR picture quality ; Intuitive interface ; Tons of content

Can't manually customize home screen ; YouTube App in absentia

The Amazon Fire TV Cube is an excellent marriage of an Echo speaker and a Fire TV device that's able to control your living room.

Amazon Fire TV Cube: What is Amazon’s hands-free 4K TV streamer?

 

Amazon's Fire TV Cube has been unveiled, and it's a hands-free 4K TV streamer with Alexa at its core

As for the streaming quality, the Cube is similar to the Fire TV 4K dongle Amazon released last year. The device supports the HDR10 standard, streaming 4K video at 60Hz and Dolby Atmos content.
