The Siri Remote for the Apple TV is one of Apple's most polarizing products. It's small and the trackpad can finicky, but mostly people don't like that thanks to its symmetry and lack of backlighting, it's extremely difficult to navigate in the dark.
Fortunately, there are a number workarounds for the Siri Remote. You can use the Apple TV Remote app and control your Apple TV straight from your iPhone or iPad. If you have a wireless gaming controller for an Xbox One and PlayStation 4, you pair it with your Apple TV and use it instead. (To pair your console controller with your Apple TV, follow these steps.) Or you can get a third-party remote that supports that Apple TV.
