Hoping Amazon plans to restore hundreds of missing apps soon
488 people found this helpful.
I really wanted to love this device. However, as I write this, there are hundreds of apps/games in the Amazon App store that are showing as not compatible with the “Fire TV”, but are compatible with the “Fire TV (Previous Generation)”. I have called Amazon’s Fire TV Support about this, and when I do the agents put me on hold, and then come back and tell me that Amazon is aware of this issue. I would love for Amazon to comment on this review and tell us that they are working on a fix for this. Here are some details of the data that I have gathered from the Amazon App store.
– A True Masterpiece System –

I did read prior reviews that left me on the edge as whether to buy or not. After careful thought I made the decision to buy this. I can tell you that his system is one of the best. After having a Fire Stick, I can really see the difference in features and performance. The Fire TV box and controller is awesome. I didn’t truly buy it to play games, since I have an XBOX1, but the ability to do that is a nice feature. This box is absolutely fast and delivers without question. The processor is lightning fast and the controller is effortlessly smooth. Some other reviews down played the controller, but mine works great and is exactly the same type as an XBOX 1 controller as far as handling and style. Amazon got it right with this newest version. Using the Qwerty board, in other add-on apps, with the controller is actually easier than the hand held remote. The addition of extra storage provided by the micro-SD card is very nice. The ability to transfer music, videos, and other movies to this card and then play on the Fire TV is priceless. Purchasing this box it did also come with 2 Free Add-on Games already installed. Most of the Games can be downloaded and most are free. I really enjoy this box. Oh yay, Alexia works well and responds fast to your questions and as advertised, can find music, TV shows, and movies just by asking. I highly recommend this product. The only thing that I would advise is after initial setup and your registration, immediately update the firmware. Go into Amazon system and push the update button. It only takes about 10 minutes, but the newest version OS 5.0.5 is award winning and resolves a lot of issues posted by others. Go get this system!! You won’t regret it. I have added many apps for streaming and it delivers. I have the Major player App “K”, like the bear, and it runs flawlessly on the ARM 64 bit download. All other Fire Sticks and prior Fire TV Box versions have to run on the 32 bit platform. A big enhancement in the technology world. One platform system for all your streaming needs. As indicated, the specs are great and the capability to either hard wire to your internet or connect via wireless is much better.
Amazon fire TV, I prefer the 1st model

My review is my experience, comparing 1st model to this newer model. I prefer the first model. It easily took my bluetooth devices when I plugged in the Bluetooth USB. Whenever the internet dropped it would pick pick it up right away without any problems. And the controller has the fast forward, play and rewind buttons. Also the controller easily wakes up the Amazon fire TV when it is in sleep mode.
I absolutely love this Fire Tv

I absolutely love this Fire Tv. I love the remote control because of it’s XBOX like design and high quality build. I just wish it came with a regular remote fro standard use as well. Fora quick suggestion, I believe the the buttons should have LED backlit lights for users like myself who are not use to the buttons and their locations if you are using this remote in the dark. Though, you do get use to them, and when you do, the Fire TV gets even more amazing. I love the graphics and speed of this tiny box. I love ASAP and how it’s extra RAM keeps things open in the background. I do love ASAP, but it is still a work in progress. The idea of it is great, I just wish it worked every time. Sometimes loading an episode and/or movie is instead, other times it is nearly instant, but sometimes the Fire TV does need to load it. But it takes like half a second to load with it’s new speed, so I cannot really complain. By next generation, the speed of it will be instant because of the speed of the processor and not because of ASAP, anyway. I also love Alexa. Alexa (Amazon Echo) has created a new ecosystem of interaction because of her. I just received another Alexa for Christmas and I love all of her features. This new feature makes the Fire TV a million more times more helpful. I love this Fire TV and will never turn back to Roku, Apple TV, or Nexus Player. This tiny box has the best value by far against other entertainment boxes and services. I really, really like this.

Love it. Quick and easy, always available: movies, games and music. Wish I would have switched from cable to Amazon Fire TV Gaming Edition much earlier.
