My tv is TCL 55" P715 4K QUHD Android LED TV . well, since it got chromecast built in, I was hopeful before purchasing that this was one of the smartest tv in a budget. but it was damn slow. Most of the times, the remote is not responsive and I had to press 5/6 times to run a command. it was like Nokia3310 for me.
All-new Fire TV Stick 4K is Iphone 12 pro for me. Very fast, responsive remote, fast loading app, almost all the apps are available including Masterclass, Wondrium(previous the great courses plus).
Now my TCL tv is used just as monitor. Fire stick is the processor, ram and hard drive.
Even the bluetooth connection is flawless, super fast. everytime I turn on my headphone, it connects in 5 sec to the fire stick tv.
voice search can't be better than this. now i don't type anything. "show some cake baking video" and it shows all the baking from automatically from youtube. "show all the movie by Tom hanks" and it shows all the movie from netflix, prime, apple tv, stan, disney.... basically it searches all the apps to show result.
i don't need to use the tcl remote. fire stick remote is all in all.
can't be happier. can't want more from a tv in this budget.
