In the battle for the role of the best streaming device for your home, the Fire TV Stick (3rd Gen 2021) versus the Fire TV Stick 4K (2021) are pretty much the same. Both serve their roles, depending on what you are trying to achieve with your video playback and streaming needs.

However, whether you want 4K playback or Dolby Vision support will affect you. Amazon also launched the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max for the first time in 2021 with a faster processor and Wi-Fi 6 support.

When looking at these two flowing sticks head-on, it can be very difficult to tell them apart outside of the pack. In terms of dimensions, the Fire TV Stick (3rd generation) and the Fire TV Stick 4K (2021) are similar, with the latter being a bit taller. What you find in the box is the same, with a Micro-USB charging cable, an Amazon wall wart, an HDMI extender, and extra paperwork, along with the stick itself.
