Amazon offers discounts for Fire TV Stick, sold for $ 29.99, and Fire TV 4K, sold for $ 49.99. Both devices come with a wide range of applications and Alexa's voice remote control, so which one should you buy? ( Amazon )
Amazon currently offers limited time discounts for Fire TV Stick and Fire TV 4K, bringing device prices down to $ 29.99 and $ 49.99, respectively.
This is the lowest price for the Fire TV 4K, and the second lowest price for Fire TV Stick that sold for $ 24.99 during the last holiday shopping season. The prices are similar to what Amazon offered at the end of February.
Amazon Fire TV Stick, Fire TV 4K Discounts
Amazon Fire TV Stick is sold at a $ 10 discount for only $ 29.99. Meanwhile, Amazon Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD is sold at a $ 20 discount for only $ 49.99.
Both the Fire TV Stick and the Fire TV 4K offer users a wide range of applications, including Netflix, HBO, Hulu, PlayStation Vue and Sling TV, and a browser to browse websites such as Facebook, Reddit and YouTube . Both devices also come with an Alexa voice remote control, which allows users to search for content and run applications using voice commands.
It should be noted, however, that the devices prioritize Amazon's media. To take full advantage of the devices, an Amazon Prime subscription may be required. It is perfectly fine to use Fire TV Stick and Fire TV 4K without being a member of Amazon Prime, but a subscription highlights the true potential of the devices.
Customers who want to take advantage of discounts for Fire TV devices, however, will need to be quick. Offers will only last until April 15, at 3 a.m. ET.
Which one should I buy?
Both the Fire TV Stick and the Fire TV 4K transform normal TVs into smart TVs. However, while the Fire TV Stick is much more expensive, customers who have extra money are advised to use the Fire TV 4K, as suggested by Chris Davies of SlashGear.
The Fire TV 4K is faster than the Fire TV Stick, with hardware that, according to Amazon, makes it 40 percent more powerful. The decoder also comes with more memory and is based on a new version of Android, making it more secure and efficient. The Fire TV 4K is also compatible with Dolby Atmos, which is perfect for audiophiles because it allows greater precision in the control of surround effects.
The recommendation is valid even if you do not yet have a 4K TV or Dolby Atmos compatible equipment. There is always the possibility that it will be updated in the future, as brands further reduce their prices of speakers and 4K TVs to compete with each other in the market.
