“The Amazon Echo is a great-looking, affordable smart speaker with the best voice assistant technology. Less expensive and better-looking than previous Echo. Alexa is the best voice assistant ecosystem. Adds 3.5mm out. Loud.”
Featured in PCMag’s Best Wireless Speakers of 2018.
“With a variety of new designs, the new Amazon Echo is better-looking than the original, just as smart and a lot less expensive. The addition of an aux-out jack lets you connect it with your existing audio setup. It’s also a slightly better listener than before.”
Featured in CNet’s Best Smart Home for 2018.
“The Echo is smaller, better looking and cheaper than the original. It has a removable shell so you can change its appearance, too. With a couple of other tweaks and improvements, it’s considerably better valued than the original was”
“While the smarts stay the same, the new Amazon Echo has been given a much-needed makeover with a price just too compelling to resist.”
“It doesn’t improve the Echo’s rather poor audio quality, nor does it introduce any new, groundbreaking features. It just does the same things in a smaller, cheaper design. That’s enough to keep Amazon ahead of its competitors, which are all a step or two behind the Echo line-up.”
