Since Chromecast saw the light in 2013, which is said soon, due to its price has been a great success and acceptance, both for its ease of configuration, as for its durability. A device that allows you to see the content of your smartphone or tablet on your TV is something that we need more and more today. And that Amazon knows, so they wanted to get into the sector and try the Fire TV Stick Basic.
It seemed that Amazon was only going to dedicate itself to the sale of third-party products until it started to manufacture its own. First on a smaller scale and value, and now has for sale a wide range of useful products for day to day as tablets, cables, chargers, and a long etcetera. Now, with its Fire TV Stick Basic, it intends to take away from Google its hegemony in this sector.
How is the Fire TV Stick Basic
As its name indicates, it is a stick with HDMI connection and is accompanied by a remote control of small size, which goes with 2 AAA batteries (such as Apple TV or Xiaomi TV Box). We just have to connect it to our TV, to the HDMI input port, and enjoy connecting our devices wirelessly.
Inside, we find an 8GB memory, 1GB RAM, MediaTek Quad-Core ARM 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity (for remote control), dual-band Wi-Fi and dual antenna 802.11a / b / g / n / ac, and micro USB to charge the device.
It supports resolutions 720p and 1080p at 60 fps (at the moment there is no 4K version), and also with Dolby Audio, 5.1 surround sound, 2 channel stereo and up to 7.1 through HDMI. In addition, we can transmit all types of video files through the Fire TV Stick Basic and enjoy them on our TV or projector.
Where to buy and how much is the Fire TV Stick Basic worth
