Hello,

I want to purchase one of these devices but don’t know which one is better and offers more options. This is what I need it for:
1. I plan to watch Amazon Prime Content
2. I want to do extensive phone to tv casting
3. I want to watch JioTV, Jio Cinema, Hotstar etc

Can someone who’s using these throw some light on pros/cons etc?

As per what I have studied and read across the internet

In terms of stability support etc – Fire stick
In terms of features – Mi box

Chromecast is number 3

Go for Chromecast. Already we have tv remote and dish/cable remote. Firestick will add another remote. To watch youtube in firestick in you need to open youtube app and search for the video how will you search? I mean how do u type in the search box you need to connect your phone or another keyboard. I know people will say its completely voice support and you can use voice search. It won’t recognise our voice for local languages only english titles or words will be recognised.in Chromecast its easy to cast any video in ur tv. Firestick is like all of apps and you need to switch apps to change content. The main con is Chromecast is you cant cast amazon prime video becoz google and amazon have fight but they sorted out. Soon they will add cast button in amazon prime video. Believe me i used Apple tv 4k which is 20k and used Firestick and chrome cast also. Among all i liked chromecast very much.very easy to operate.i suggested this to all my friends and they are enjoying Chromecast

Okay but I’m a little confused.
When you can cast your mobile screen to TV, how does it matter whether Prime Video is supported or not? I can just open the app on my phone and play content. It will be played on TV, right?
Also, I want to know if I’m mirroring my screen, can I start a movie in Prime Video (or any other app) and turn the mobile screen off and continue watching on TV?
I personally feel this is more redundant. Content being played on your mobile as well as on TV, double processing power.

I am saying if we use Chromecast no need to use remote at ALL. we can fully manage with mobile.

yes you are correct, thats the problem. It will double processing power. But in chromecast you cast everything so what i do is i will download the video to my laptop and plays using vlc. In chromecast you can cast any video from your laptop or desktop tv no need to copy to pendrive and connecting to tv. But all should be in same network.If you want to play any video in TV which is available in your computer. open vlc in your mobile browse video and cast it. no need to play that video on mobile. you can screenoff the mobile. In vlc player you can play directly to chromecast from laptop/computer. casting was so much fun than switching all apps in tv. Anyone in the house will play a video using their mobile.

Well, if you want to watch content from a different app than what’s being played, you have to use either a remote (FTV) or your phone/laptop to change the app/content. In this case, the phone/laptop acts as a remote. Personally, I feel using a remote on FTV is more convenient than using your phone to do the same thing. Plus it also allows you to use voice commands. This is what I feel.

I understand your reasoning for CC and my inclination is for that only. However, I’m seeing more and more people are recommending FTV.
I’m totally confused….

Firestick has made everything possible. You can watch jio tv by download the required app but since it consumes lot of data, I cast jio tv via phone to my TV. I can also cast my laptop to my TV using Plex. I can do almost everything with firestick that I could with my TV with DTH.

Amazon prime doesnt support chromecast. Other you cant cast video to tv.
Fire stick got bluetooth support for headphones , speaker or keyboard mouse etc. Remote is extra in fire. Can sideload anrdroid app. Use mobile app as remote.

In all ways fire tv is better. Its like a full fledge internet streaming set top box.
Chromecast is more of side support if already using some dth. Youtube work best in chromecast.

There is no comparison between chromecast and firestick. Firestick is way superior. Googles hardware is usually not very good.

Nope. you won’t feel convenient to use FTV remote believe me. Our phones are user friendly than any other remote. How much time it will take to play a video on phone. Just few seconds. if u want to see that in tv just click on cast that’s it. Btw you can use google voice assistant from mobile to Chromecast to play on tv. If you say play some video on tv to ur mobile it will play that video on tv using chromecast. Ftv will make u tv smart. Smart tvs are hard to control now a days. Always use a simple setup. All livetv aps are compatible with chromecast. My job was to make homes smarter. FTV is over hyped and overrated.

Yes there is no comparison between two becoz Ftv makes ur normal tv to smart tv. Chromecast is a casting device to cast almost anything.
