Comparison of Fire TV 4K vs Fire TV Stick 4K Max, by sections

Power and storage

On the outside they are copied devices, on the inside not so much. The hardware makes the difference between one model and another, with the Fire TV Stick 4 Max being more powerful. And it has a Quad-core 2.0 GHz processorwhile that of the Fire TV Stick reaches 1.7 GHz. In daily use, it is not that it is too noticeable, but it can be palpable in more demanding or multitasking tasks.

As for storage, there won’t be many problems in the most expensive model, with 16 GB and doubling the memory of its younger brother. If you are going to install many apps, it can be a very valuable aspect.

Connectivity
