The Amazon Fire TV Stick converts any TV with an HDMI port into a smart TV and is convenient as hell. We use it to stream everything from YouTube to Netflix, Prime, and Disney+ Hotstar on our TV. However, you can also use it to browse the internet and use a tonne of apps. It makes the viewing experience so much better. It also has a screen mirroring feature, which comes in pretty handy to enlarge those photos and videos on our phones.
