A device that meets all those needs runs the proper, easy to use Android TV OS Graphic User Interface.
Android TV OS devices come with a dead simple, responsive, wireless, remote controls that even have voice recognition.

If you cannot get hold of a nVIDIA Shield the US$69 Mi Box will meet your requirements.
The FireTV devices need to have Kodi side loaded. With the Mi Box, you just install SPMC (special, Android TV optimised Kodi version) from the inbuilt Google Play Store and you are going to go.

thank you very much, it's good to know I have two to chose from.
MiBox seems great! Just to confirm, Mi Box does Netflix 4k right? or there are known issues?How difficult is to sideload android apps not made for android-tv (e.g., vpn)?
On the FireTv I could exploit my amazon prime subscription but not absolutely necessary. Also, I guess no google play store right?
