In a previous review, we looked at the difference between the Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote and the previous Fire TV Stick. Once we received our Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote from Amazon (click here for Amazon pricing), we took a look at what's inside the box.
The Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote keeps in line with Amazon's fire orange and black color scheme for its Fire branded products.
Amazon also has been very clever with orgami-like packaging styles and the Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote inside container opens up to reveal the Fire TV Stick and all its accessories tucked away smartly into different compartments. Compared to the previous Fire TV Stick, the packaging definitely has a more innovative design and premium feel to it.
The Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote comes with different accessories such as a Alexa enabled remote control with associated batteries, a HDMI adapter (if you need to connect a HDMI cable between the stick and TV), a USB charger and cable, and manuals.
The USB AC Adapter is a standard 5 watts (5 volts @ 1 amps) charger.
To power the Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote, you need to connect the included USB cable between the USB port on the side of the Fire TV Stick and the USB AC Adapter.
In the next reviews, we will look at whether interoperability behavior with TV's and phones have been affected by the change from the Broadcom Dual-core ARM processor found in the previous Fire TV Stick, to the MediaTek Quad-core ARM found in the Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote.
