Amazon Fire TV Cube review (2019): Alexa's streaming box grows up

 

The new Amazon Fire TV Cube is much improved over last year's model. It now has YouTube and YouTube TV, support for Dolby Vision and HDR+, and a lot more video viewing commands than before. With a hexa-core processor on board, it's also a lot faster at...

Dolby Vision and HDR+ ; Can handle most video viewing commands ; Support for all the major streaming services ; Much faster response times

Sometimes prefers some apps over others ; Can’t voice search for channels or content on YouTube TV

Amazon Fire TV Cube (second-generation) review: This is the best streaming box with voice control

 

The Fire TV Cube's voice controls are on another level from competing streamers, though some limitations still apply.

Hands-free voice control makes launching videos fast and easy ; Fastest Fire TV streaming device yet ; Broad HDR and surround-sound audio format support

Not all apps play nice with Alexa ; The Fire TV interface is still too chaotic ; Alexa could use better privacy controls

The Fire TV Cube isn’t the only Amazon streamer that supports hands-free voice control. With any other Fire TV device, you can pair an external Alexa speaker such as an Amazon Echo, and use many of the same voice commands.

Hands-free Alexa voice support. Infrared blaster can control your home theater by voice. Fast performance. Supports all major HDR formats.

Expensive compared with smaller 4K media streamers.

The second-generation Amazon Fire TV Cube improves on the the media streaming capabilities and hands-free Alexa controls from the first version with faster performance and expanded HDR support.

Amazon Fire TV Cube review

 

The smartest video streamer you can buy

Natural, balanced picture ; Punchy audio ; Supports all HDR formats ; Adds Alexa control to your system

Beaten for sharpness and dark detail ; Apple TV 4K sounds fuller

A good video streamer elevated by doubling up as a voice-controlled universal remote for your whole system

Fire TV Cube review

 

The best Fire TV device yet, and now it controls your TV too

Alexa can now control your TV ; 4K HDR content is superb ; Great app selection ; Fastest Fire TV device yet

Some equipment doesn't offer full functionality ; No HDMI cable included

As long as your equipment plays ball, the Fire TV Cube offers a slick way to control your TV with your voice, while serving up the best streaming services and all the smarts of Alexa in one clever package.

Fire TV Cube (2nd gen) review: Control your TV and Sky box with Alexa

 

When it's set up, Fire TV Cube is a neat solution to voice-control your TV and Sky box. But does it make more sense to buy than the Fire TV Stick?

Voice control of your TV ; Works well with Sky ; Brilliant with Amazon Prime and Netflix ; Dolby Vision/HDR support

Setup woes ; Inconsistent app experience ; Far-field mics need to get better ; Not good enough to leave your remotes behind (yet)

A neat solution to voice-control your TV and Sky box, but the setup is a hit-and-miss experience and with the Fire TV Stick 4K at less than half the price, it's tough to slate or recommend the new Cube.

Amazon has cut the price of the 4K Fire TV Cube

 

At £90, it's a solid buy

But if you are, then at £90 it’s an absolute steal.

Amazon’s Fire TV Cube for £80 is a hot Cyber Monday deal

 

Control a suite of smart home and entertainment tech with this multi-functional Alexa device

All these features originally came in at the not unreasonable price of £110, which considering an Echo Dot and 4K Fire TV Stick on their own would set you back £100 between them, that price was not bad at all. At a new price of £80, the Fire TV Cube is...

Amazon Fire TV Cube

 

It's a cross between a Fire TV and an Amazon Echo: the Fire TV Cube lets you use Alexa to control your TV, sound bar and play videos from YouTube, Netflix and - of course Amazon Prime Video.
