I recently got an old HD TV fixed and wanted to make it "smart"

Im new to the streaming stick fashion, i want an android based stick because of better app library (assuming)

1, Out of Mi TV Stick and Google Chromecast 3, which has better hardware?

2. Im aware chromecast doesnt come with a remote, is it used just to mirror the screen of a connected device or does it actually has an inbuilt OS that can run on it own ?

3. Can i used Mi TV Stick with app remotes? im worried about physical remote failure.

4. Do sticks need constant power or is there a battery system?

Thanks a lot. Please feel free to direct me to other streaming sticks if they are significantly better for some reason

There is new version of chromecast that comes with remote too. I personally prefer physical remote.

Amazon Fire stick is also an option and although it does not come with Google play store, you can still side load almost any apk. I personally prefer fire stick as I have new using them since 2015 and have 2 sticks in 2 TVs at home and 3rd tv is onida smart tv which runs on fire os.

Mi sticj and Chromecast both will require power from a USB adapter. Just get the mi stick or firestick lite.

Did you install a custom ROM on your Onida TV ?
I have Onida Smart tv as well but Netflix and Amazon Prime wont run on same.. (not supported)
