Firestick lite? I wouldn't say so. This version of the fire stick has all the features of a regular firestick without Dolby quality sound, volume controls, and a power button.
Pro’s
• It still has 1080p HD quality video, quad core processor and 802.11 AC wifi connection.
• Quad core CPU 1.7Ghz
• 1Gb DDR4 RAM
• 8 gig internal storage. A small portion is of it is used for the OS. So it more like 5 gig for applications.
• It’s running the same Fire OS 7.2.2.3 as the regular FIrestick.
• Dual band WiFi AC.
Alexa voice remote.

Con’s (difference) what’s new?
- No IR remote control. What this means is:
- No power control for TV, or other devices.
- No volume buttons for TV.
This is what makes it Lite because you don’t get the standard 2nd generation remote.
- No Dolby vision
- No Dolby Atmos sound. Has Dolby digital
+ stream service button.
Kind of like a hot key for all your streaming services like Netflix, Disney+, and Hulu.

For the price point you won't even miss the volume buttons. And for a person just getting into streaming devices this is the least expensive option compared to all the other devices on the market period. If you've never had streaming device at all you won't miss anything at all.

Now if you're not new to streaming devices and you've Hey experience with Amazon products you might just miss the volume control and power buttons, but it's not a big deal.
I've had every Amazon device there is from the first gen firestick, the 4K stick to the fireTV cube. I know all the features, the in and outs, and tricks on how to use each and every one of these devices, so when they came out with the lite I had to try it. It doesn't disappoint.
It is the same fire stick but just try to imagine, or remember the fire stick before 4K, and before the power options and volume remote the IR features. It actually has the same power, and performance as the 4K Firestick, just 1080p HD. This was just a way for Amazon to corner the market by having the cheapest streaming device on the market ahead of all the new competition bringing out streaming devices. And again, it does not disappoint. It’s also faster than the standard 2nd gen Firestick, so if you have a 2nd gen this is a very economical upgrade.
• With the lite there's no cheaper device this good on the market, and no reason to buy any other device on the market if you are just getting started, and now Amazon has a device for all price points, this is the economy Amazon package.

Great job Amazon!
