Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 October 2020
I have every generation of stick except the 4k and they are all still going strong, even the G1. I use them for everything, prime video, Netflix, britbox and all the mainstream apps like iplayer but I also sideload non amazon apps like KODI. I had absolutely no problem uploading the apps (see pic) and they all loaded with their icons. They work swiftly and I am hugely impressed with the speed of this stick.

I loaded in this order. Sign in with Amazon, go to settings and enable apps from unknown sources and ADB debugging in the developer options. Then loaded the mainstream apps from the amazon store and then side loaded my other apps. All done without problem in less than 30 mins.

If, like the other reviewer you struggle with grey icons then Google it. It is not a new problem and there are countless sites with help on how to sort it out.

As for the stick itself I really recommend it. I have no need for 4k (due to 720p eyes), i never use the TV buttons on my other controls and I have no need for dolby atmos. My only gripe would be some price creep I paid less for my last full featured stick than this lite version. Either way, this is the best streaming device around - buy it without fear if disappointment.
