Chromecast Ultra is £70 atm, any cheap android boxes able to stream netflix at full UHD (4K) with no lag/stutter at the same quality the chromecast ultra can? A friend has one and it truly is brilliant quality, but can't justify paying £70 for a bump in resolution, any help is much appreciated, thank you.

tbh i think that chromecast ultra is the cheapest way.
possibly the latest xiaomi 4k box will do it but i do not own one so cannot say either way.

I know this is a stupid question but...... if you have a smart tv (4k) with various apps etc and have a netflix app, does it not display 4k content to the best of it's ability? I have a middle/top and TV and I wasn't too impressed with the 4k I have seen on it. An ultra chrome cast would enhance this?
thanks

If your TV has a Netflix app it will most likely be 4K, if you're not that impressed make sure the show you're watching is 4K. Netflix say you have to have an Internet speed of 25mb before the 4k will kick in. It does look pretty good when it's on so you should notice it.

Ah, forgot to mention, my TV isn't a smart TV, so no Netflix app, thank you for suggesting it though guys.. It's a Seiki 4K TV which I bought for £200, found it on HUKD actually, brilliant TV, have no complaints about it, even games well for a 42" (on 1080p, not tried 4k gaming) but this TV definitely doesn't have a Netflix app.

That would make sense. Thanks. I haven't got great Internet at the moment, I will have to have a look at getting something better. I have heard that a lot of the android boxes in general are pretty decent and I'm sure you will be able to do much more than the chrome, however the chrome cast will probably be a lot easier use.

What about the Amazon fire TV

This may be a stupid question but do you actually have the 4k/UltraHD subscription to Netflix and there's not that many things on it that are true 4k. Also depending on your gaming device of choice you can use Netflix on that. Even though Xbox and Ps are not native 4k they can still display HD and if you have a PS4 pro you can run 4k through it. Also there's no real point in buying a 4k streaming device unless your tv has built in top range HDR picture and for 200 quid Seiki I doubt it has that so I wouldn't bother buying one, just use hour games platform. And no matter what you get if got internet isn't spot on your streaming won't be good either. Netflix on my KODI Firestick isn't great but on my Xbone there is no loading times and no buffering.

Thank you for the detailed response, but I am well aware of everything 4K.
Most of the content I watch on Netflix is UHD, and many of the new releases are going to be UHD so I want to stay ready. Yes, I do have the UHD subscription which I pay extra for, but at the moment I can only view UHD on PC, hence why I need a streaming device. HDR has nothing to do with 4K mate, HDR shows more vivid colours, but compare standard non HDR 1080p to non HDR 4K and you can still tell a massive difference, especially if you are sitting close to the TV which I tend to do. My internet is pretty decent, when downloading games on Steam, PS4 or using torrents, I get around 10-14mb per second, games download super fast and I can download a full 1080p move in under 4 minutes. I do appreciate your response, but I have valid reasons for buying a 4K streaming device..
