It’s equipped with plenty of software safeguards to ensure that young users can only access appropriate content, and you can also set screen-time limits.
Amazon Fire Stick (4K)
The best for streaming 4K content
Picture quality: Up to 4K HDR10+ | Voice remote: Yes | Alexa-enabled: Yes | Storage: 8GB | Ethernet port: No – requires aditional adapter
Alexa Voice Remote
4K and HDR 10+
Dolby Atmos Audio
If you want the most advanced and future-proof streaming device Amazon makes without spending a lot of money, the new 4K Fire TV Stick is the one for you. The new streaming media stick packs a wealth of features into a thumb-drive sized stick. For not much more than the older HD-only Fire TV Stick, you get 4K capability, HDR, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, and Dolby Atmos Audio—something very few streaming sticks have. Plus, you also get Alexa, Amazon’s smart assistant, and its voice control capabilities.
Amazon Echo Show 5
A small screen, but an even smaller price
Speaker size: 1.65 x 4W | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Dimensions: 14.8 x 8.6 x 7.3cm | Weight: 410g | Line out: 3.5mm audio or Bluetooth | Built-in smart home hub: No
Way cheaper than the other Echo Shows
Decent alternative to the Google Home hub
This new member of the Echo Show family has a smaller five-inch screen than the original two Show models and it’s a lot cheaper too. Actually, it’s even cheaper than the Echo Spot which has a comparatively tiny screen. If you can fit this on your bedside table, the louder speaker and bigger screen make the Show 5 the better buy in our books.
