    I drop my remote at least once a day and it still works fine. Best Apple TV remote yet.

    Absolutely great

    • Written by Ivan A from Москва

    Just compare it with any other remote with tons of buttons. Though this remote has only six, you have all what you need under fingertips.

    I looked at reviews and not sure how people are breaking their remote. I have had no issues and have had grandchildren using it. Works as advertised and looks great.

    Gorgeous design

    Gorgeous design, very light and it feels like an expensive thing.

    I don’t understand why there are so many negative reviews

    • Written by Cynthia P from Colorado Springs

    I had a Fire Stick before I got my Apple TV. I find the Apple remote incredibly easy to use. The voice recognition function works well, and I had no problem getting used to making the controls function. There was a learning curve, to be sure, but it was certainly nothing extreme, and now that my fingers are used to it, it seems effortless to operate. I prefer it 100 times over the Fire Stick.

    Love it! Dont be stupid and so will you!

    • Written by Tyler L from Pinehurst

    Love the product! Ive had one since the Apple TVs were released and only reason i had to replace is because it was lost in a move. Fail to understand how people break them unless they drop them off roofs or are just incompetent. Ive dropped mine feom waist high numerous times on my wood floor and not even a scratch.

    The Essential Apple Remote

    • Written by Mitchell F from Sunnyvale

    I have had a Gen4 AppleTV for about two years now, and the Gen4 AppleTV 4K for four months, and with both versions, I have not had any problems with the remote. They have functioned reliably and consistently, charged well, lasted for months on that single charge, and have suffered no physical damage (but I take good care of my electronics). When the remotes get too many fingerprints or smudges, some light cleaning makes them look as good as new. Not sure why so many 1-Star reviews, but I can say from my own personal experience, the remote rates a 5-star.

    Phenomenal remote

    • Written by Alexander H from Bristol

    Sleek, sexy and convenient. Easy to clean and care for. While I love the look of the remote with no case, I did purchase a clear, silicone case that fits perfectly on the remote and in my hand, and even has a loop that connects to the case (Amazon) just to be on the safe side, as the remote does have glass on it. Apple has stood up to its standard of simplicity and efficiency.

    Not as fragile as they say

    • Written by Haley S from Welland

    I see some comments on this remote and I think its worth saying I've had it for about 2 years and I definitely haven't been careful with it... many drops on different hard flooring, still in perfect condition. It is a little small so it gets lost in the couch easily, but that just means it needs to be sorted on the table... not that hard.

    people like to blame accidents on the manufacturing... in the end the remote is designed to do a specific job and I'd argue it does it well... not designed to be thrown around so much I guess.

    Great Remote, Don’t understand the complaining!

    • Written by Kevin S from Astoria

    First of all, I have hardwod floors throughout my entire home. I have dropped this remote more times than I could ever remember, and it’s NEVER shattered or broken. I have sat on it tons of times too. Heck, my remote has been abused so much the aluminum underside of it even has a tiny dent in it. Guess what? It still works! No problems. This remote controls the volume on your TV which is great, and contrary to what at least one reviewer claimed, it DOES have a power button. Want to put your AppleTV to sleep AND turn off your TV? You just click and hold on the button with the « TV » symbol on it. Want to wake up your AppleTV and turn ON your TV? Hit ANY button on the remote. Does it track too fast for you? Slow it down in settings. The trackpad is much faster to navigate with as well, and the mic works just fine, no issues at all. It’s pricey to replace, but since when has ANYTHING Apple sold ever been inexpensive?

    This remote IS THE BEST!!!

    • Written by Brittney H from Escatawpa

    I don't know why people are complaining. This remote is a beautiful piece of technology. I love the touch pad and the small way it fits to my hand!! I have dropped this device MANY times, and it never once even cracked. Keep out of reach of small children, obviously. Don't drop it, obviously. Don't rate a great device because you cannot hold onto it! It is wonderful. Go Apple!!

    Very good quality, a lot better than the other cheap plastic remotes out there for other media streaming players, works awesome with games and can even control my tv volume with NO PROGRAMMING! You get what you pay!

    Works fine, no problems

    • Written by Brandon T from Waconia

    I read each review before this one and was absolutely surprised. I've never had an issue with it disconnecting, it's been drop - heck slightly flung out of my hands and never broke and still works.

    You can adjust the sensitivity of the remote in the settings on the Apple TV. It just simply works and the ability to control not only my Apple TV but also my TV's volume with it also make it a great device. Practically, one remote handles all of my media needs, I like that.

    Small but powerful

    • Written by Dean C from Nucla

    I love the simplicity. With one click, my Apple TV, Sound System and TV all turn on (or off with a hold and a click). Connects every time, and never have to point the remote at anything and it still works. Battery lasts forever (months) and charges quickly.
    I hear all the complaints regarding the symmetrical shape making it hard to differentiate how you are holding it in the dark, but it is something I have not encountered.
