Any one here considered/considering Amazon Fire TV? Can they be sideloaded?
Yes you can sideload apps on Amazon Fire TV devices.

In the Singapore context there are no much advantages compared to Mi Box S and in general the HW specifications are weaker.

Fire TV Stick 4k (better CPU) and Fire TV Cube (better connectivity, more memory) are the two device worth getting now.

Offer now: Fire TV Stick 4k at US$40 and Fire TV Cube at US$80.

Edit to add: HW specifications comparison, ignore the ranking in the following file though.

Fire TV Stick 4k has faster CPU but less RAM at 1.5GB and storage of 8GB. Fire TV Cube is also 4k capable, has a weaker CPU, 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. Fire TV Cube is also bundled with the 100M Ethernet adapter.
