Amazon Echo Dot 3 review: Alexa's best Dot yet plays defense


At the same irresistible price, it looks and sounds better than ever. But can it slow Google's growing momentum?

The new Echo Dot looks and sounds better than ever, and now you can pair two together for stereo audio. The ongoing space race between Alexa and Google Assistant means it'll keep getting a steady stream of new features. Best of all: It's still just $50.

It doesn't come in any fun colors like the Home Mini does, and it doesn't feature any new hardware tricks, either. Aside from the new look and the stronger sound, it's just the same Dot as before.

This is the best Dot yet at the same irresistible price -- but it will do little to slow Google's growing momentum.

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd gen) review: A big step up in terms of design and musicality


The new third-generation Echo Dot delivers better audio performance than the Google Home Mini.

A very inexpensive voice-powered smart home controller ; Best sounding audio in its class ; Pretty industrial design

It’s still not a speaker I’d recommend for critical music listening ; $10 more expensive than the 2nd-gen model if you don’t care about its musicality ; Google Home Mini offers tighter integration with Android smartphones

If you’re buying your first smart speaker and you’re mostly interested in controlling your smart home devices and retrieving news, weather forecasts, and other information from the internet, save yourself 10 bucks and buy the second-generation Echo Dot...

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) Review | Trusted Reviews


Better looking, louder and clearer than the previous model, the Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) is an improvement in every way over the previous model.

Clear and loud audio ; 3.5mm and Bluetooth audio outputs ; Same price as old model ; Improved design

No longer USB-powered ; Not ideal for music

Better-looking, louder and clearer than the previous generation, the Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) is a vast improvement over its predecessor and it even costs the same. It's the ideal smart home companion for placing all around your home.

Hands on: Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Generation) review


Slightly bigger, much better

Far better audio quality ; Attractive fabric covered look

Form factor still hampers sound

A much better sounding Echo Dot, Amazon's most accessible Alexa device just became far more attractive.

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd gen) review: Improved sound and design, but UX still spotty


The advantage with the Echo Dot is that you can pair it with an external speaker if you so wish.

The verdict is quite simple: If you’ve never bought a smart speaker before and are curious as to what’s on offer, the Amazon Echo Dot is the right entry point in this segment. At Rs 4,499 it’s not priced too badly either. Be prepared for a learning...

New Echo Dot 2018: All new Amazon Echo Dot improves sound quality


Amazon's new Echo Dot smart speaker launches with improved sounds and a brand new design

If Amazon can indeed improve the Dot’s sound quality, moving it closer to speakers such as the A1, and retain all the benefits of a smart speaker at a very agreeable price, then the new Echo Dot has the potential to become even more of an essential...

Amazon Echo Dot (2018) review: The best kind of upgrade


The new Echo Dot looks and sounds better for the same price. What's not to like?

Huge improvement to audio quality ; Smart new design ; Same competitive price

Alexa is still not as smart as Google Assistant

And at the same attractive price, too. Amazon’s done it again.

Broke on first day


Does what an alexa should do, however on the first day of use the speakers got extreamly distorted. When she speaks or plays music the sound is so crackly and horrific, I have had to turn her off as I can't bare it. I need to now buy speakers to use or...
