Android TV vs Amazon Fire TV Stick: The difference everyone should know

We are all familiar with Android TV and Amazon Fire TV but as customers, it is always important for us to know about the difference between the two products. This is what we are going to bring in here!

Hardware

Different Android TV comes with different specs and prices. The Google TV dongle comes with 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage. It has a new UI and a 1.9GHz processor. You can buy it for $49.99. Mi Box S also comes with 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. Unlike the earlier device, it has an A53-based processor.

The total cost for this is $66. NVIDIA Shield TV comes at a price range from $129 to $179. It has a Tegra X1+ processor and a 256-core GPU. Most of the Amazon Fire TV Sticks feature a quad-core 1.7GHz processor, 8GB of storage, and 1GB of RAM. Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick 4K, and Fire TV Stick Lite come for $119.99, $49.99, and $29.99 respectively.

Google developed Android TV OS which powers Android TV. In this, you can use many of the thousand Android apps on the TV. These apps can be Netflix, Prime Video, YouTube, Disney+, and more. According to the reports, you have access to 6500+ apps on your Android TV. Google Assistant is the best voice assistant. You can use it to give a voice command and perform the actions. These Android TV also have a Chromecast feature which is not present in Fire TV Sticks. 

These Amazon Fire TVs have their own Fire OS which comes with their own streaming apps like Prime Video, YouTube, Netflix, and HBO Max. One area in which this TV beats the Android version is that former ones have support for the Apple TV app which is absent in Amazon Fire TV. Yet, they lag behind as they don’t have a Chromecast’s one-tap action feature. The quality of screen mirroring is not great either. 

User Interface

The UI of Android TV offers you more options than Amazon TV. You can personalize the content you want to discover, move apps front & behind and more. Android TV, which is transformed into the all-new Google TV, gives you a more comfortable experience and has a polished UI. The UI of Amazon Fire TV is not that bad at all but most of the space is given to Amazon Prime which shows forcing customers to watching Amazon’s streaming app.

It is obvious to promote your own service but forcing that on the customers is not a good marketing strategy. This can irritate customers, potentially losing them out as well. One more issue with Amazon Fire TV is that it has a very colourful and vibrant homepage. Sometimes, this can cause irritation to the eyes of the viewers.

Gaming

Both the TVs are not great for the purpose of gaming, but cloud gaming can be an answer to this problem for Android TV. The followers of this TV can use Google Stadia to play games on TV. Android TV can be used to play some light games like Crossy Road. Gaming options in Amazon Fire TV are more limited. Only games like SNES and Badland can be played.

The arrival of GeForce Now gives you more options to play games. Both GeForce Now and Google Stadia helps the users to play intensive games.

Conclusion

Even though Amazon Fire TV gives a tough fight, we believe that Android TV is the better of the two. A higher collection of apps, better casting feature, and impeccable voice assistant contributes to the success of Android TV. In almost every aspect, as discussed above, Android TV has a slight edge over the Amazon Fire TV.
