Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 October 2020
All functionality is quick and responsive as you would expect so can't be faulted in that respect.

However, if, like me, you might side load some additional Apps onto your Firestick, which are not linked to your Amazon Account, you might see that the image / icon for the App does not appear in your Apps list and instead you get a "greyed out" box. The App will install and work fine once you open it, but the obvious visual for it is missing on your home screen and My Apps lists and if you have a few of them, you will have to guess which app you are opening. Example pictured.

This Fire TV Lite OS is Version 7.2.2.3, presumably bang up to date, and this does not happen (in my experience) with previous OS on the 4k Stick for example which is version 6.2.7.3.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and Factory resets but it is still the same. Might this be a "glitch" with the latest OS, Version 7, that needs fixing?
