    I use a different remote for my fire TV now, but the voice search was very good when I used the bundled remote.

    It's a shame it's not 4K yet, perhaps for the next gen.

    I imagine it's not 4k at least in part because it's wireless (the Fire TV has ethernet and is 4k,) and most peoples routers simply don't have the bandwidth.

    My Samsung TV is perfectly capable of streaming 4K content from Amazon Prime wirelessly, and 802.11n at that.

    Edit: TV is 802.11ac, but my router is only 802.11n.
