Engadget Review

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 responding to your commands. You can use it as an Echo too, with the ability to make voice calls and control your smart home. Voice search does prefer some apps over others, you can’t get rid of your remote control completely and it might not be so great if you already have an Echo. But if you want an Alexa-powered streaming box that can be an Echo too, the Fire TV Cube certainly fits the bill.
