Amazon firesticks are very popular and in my opinion, more flexible than Roku devices. They currently run on the popular Android OS.

Apparently Amazon are in the process of ditching Android and bringing out their own OS which may prevent users from sideloading apps not available from Amazon's app store. This would bring it in line with Roku.

Personally I have liked firesticks to date, I only have one sideloaded program, KODI. This app to me make the Firestick great to use, if I were unable to use it the firestick would become just a mediocre streaming device.

Interested in other people's opinions.
