Reviews around work (3.92 of 5)

  • My first remote worked great for 3 months, until the Amazon batteries that came with it both exploded
  • The remote broke within a month, 2 buttons stopped working
  • when the remote is working it is fine but I am on my second one and hoping it does not go belly up like the first one
  • I really like the amazon fire tv, but there should be a better remote control for it, the first one, which came with the fire tv, started having issues after one and a half year, and sttoped working almost after the 2 years, the replacement I got, lasted less than 2 weeks, starting having the same issues the first one had, so I returned it right away for a refund and better installed the amazon fire app in my phone to control the fire tv, works perfect.
  • If this remote stops working I'm going to smash it with a hammer and send it back to Amazon.

Reviews around control (2.31 of 5)

  • The buttons and the dumb circle control seem to be bottoming out when touched, like brakes that need replacing
  • I really like the amazon fire tv, but there should be a better remote control for it, the first one, which came with the fire tv, started having issues after one and a half year, and sttoped working almost after the 2 years, the replacement I got, lasted less than 2 weeks, starting having the same issues the first one had, so I returned it right away for a refund and better installed the amazon fire app in my phone to control the fire tv, works perfect.

Reviews around quality (2.21 of 5)

  • How about expecting a better quality product from a company that I spends thousands of dollars with?
  • This is the third remote in 2 years (2 in less than 6 months) very bad quality
  • Unless Amazon comes out with both a better quality FireTV unit and a heavier duty remote, this will most likely be my last FireTV purchase
  • Instead of Amazon spending more money to get the customers to spend more money to upgrade to newer technology within their family of tech gadgets how about making a better quality product first.
  • so it is within 4 feet and in plain sight of the remote, and nothing seems to solve the poor quality of this device

Reviews around lot (2.18 of 5)

  • I purchase a lot on Amazon and I love to give give stars, but I'm only giving three because I have to press multiple times on the remote to get it respond, and I just got it
  • It seems like there wasn't a lot of thought put into this by people with small children in their homes.
  • I don't believe this is enough time for an electronic voice/Bluetooth remote, and I think Amazon should offer to replace these for free, because lots of users are having issues with the remote.
  • I watch a lot of Sling TV, and while the interface is the same on both Apple TV, and Fire TV, I prefer watching on the Fire TV because of this remote
  • NOTE: if your remote breaks within 90 days, send that sh*t back to Amazon and get a new one.
