The live tab geature is the main selling point as far as I am concerned..
Although it needs needs to get some updates since not all channels are synchronised, its still wonderful.
A very powerful processor and the IR blaster works amazing with a few quirks here and there but one can control the whole entertainment center with just one device including soundbars and dth boxes..
If you have the budget, go for it!
You eill not be disappointed..
Out of all fire Tv devices, this one is the fastest, friendliest and best streaming device. Apple TV is better in terms of picture quality (hard to notice on normal 4K TV) but considering the cost and hands-free experience, fire TV Cube is far ahead of apple Tv. It is very easy and convenient to search content, play, pause, increase/decrease volume, turn ON/OFF tv etc using voice feature on fire TV Cube. If u get fire tv cube in discount, just go for it. It’s value for money considering the features provided which no other similar gadget gives.
Audio too low compared to previous gen fire sticks

Also the remote is not as good as the previous gen from build quality at this price point.
The interface is very fluid. Alexa is cool.
