I've been using Amazon Firestick for past 2 years and I can see that it has become very slow in terms of responsiveness and launching apps. I checked the space availability and it hovers around 1.5Gb at any given time. Is everyone else facing this issue or it's just me?

Background:
I'm using the Jio fiber 30days trial and my parents are now used to Hotstar VIP subscription as they can watch all their soap operas starting 6AM everyday. I'm not planning to continue Jio post trial period. Currently Firestick is connected to my Home theater. So I thought of moving the FTv stick to TV so my parents can continue watching Hotstar serials, without turning on HT. Since FTv stick has become slow (compared to Jio STB) they're finding it hard to operate it.

Note: I own a 10 year old Samsung HD LCD TV.

Usually they become slow after using for more than an year. Did you try factory reset? You should consider upgrading to the latest generation, as they improved the performance considerably.

yes. 1st and 2nd gen sticks needs delicate use. 3rd gen sticks are very good in terms of performance

Is the upgrade worth or we can look at using some other Android TV Box altogether?
