Amazon Echo (4th Gen) review: New look, same outstanding results


Amazon takes a gamble on the new Echo (4th Gen) by changing it up with a totally new design. It's daring, but will it be enough to make consumers take notice?

Charming new spherical design ; Dazzling LED light ring ; Acts as an Amazon Sidewalk Bridge ; Great sounding audio

Bass strains at highest volume

Amazon Echo (4th Gen) Review


As powerful as the Echo Plus ; Strong bass for the size ; Built-in smart home hub

High frequencies don't get quite as much finesse as they could ; Alexa can still be awkward to talk to

The fourth-generation Amazon Echo speaker takes the sound quality and smart home hub capabilities of the Echo Plus and puts it in a new round package.

Amazon Echo (4th Gen) Review – Alexa gets vocal


It's six years since the first Amazon Echo arrived, igniting a whole new category of smart speakers and making the idea of talking to a disembodied voice a little less weird, and now Alexa is…

Impressive musical performance ; Plenty of bass ; Smart home hub built-in ; Alexa wake-word almost never fails

Midrange is still the weak spot ; Are you a Google household or an Amazon one?

Amazon Echo (4th Gen) review: The more things change, the more they stay the same


Amazon still has the best speaker for smart home control, but it still trails Sonos and Google in musicality.

Zigbee, Bluetooth LE, and Amazon Sidewalk radios onboard ; Alexa can control a huge number of smart home systems and devices ; Plenty of bang for the buck

Google’s Nest Audio sounds better ; Sonos supports more music-streaming services ; Polarizing industrial design

The Amazon Echo (4th Gen) is a pretty good audio performer, but it’s a smart speaker that’s also equipped with a Zigbee radio. I’m taking a wait-and-see approach to Amazon’s Sidewalk network for now. It sounds promising, but there’s nothing tangible in...

The 4th iteration of the Amazon Echo is the best choice for an Alexa-powered smart speaker.

Amazon Echo (4th Gen) review: The circular speaker that won my heart


The Amazon Echo (4th Gen) is the latest in a long line of Alexa smart speakers, with a radical new design, upgraded audio, and the same $100 asking price. So is it worth picking up? Great sound, a lovely design, and an excellent price.

Lovely new design ; Seriously impressive audio ; 3.5mm audio jack ; Built-in Zigbee smart hub ; Great price

Inconsistent button response

The 4th-gen Amazon Echo is the most radical redesign we've ever seen for the smart speaker, and the risk Amazon took paid off in spades. This latest Echo sounds considerably better than past generations, the new round aesthetic is quite pleasing, and...

Amazon Echo (4th gen) review


Strong audio and even stronger smart home skills make the new Amazon Echo the most well-rounded smart speaker you can buy.

Sleek spherical design ; Good audio for price ; Great smart home skills ; Audio in/out port

I wish it had a clock ; Audio not as good as Sonos One

As I said earlier, if you want the best-sounding smart speaker, the Sonos One is the way to go. But if you’re looking for a smart speaker that will not just play tunes, but act as a central smart home hub, the 4th-generation Echo is an excellent choice.

Amazon Echo (4th Gen, 2020) Review


Amazon Echo (4th Gen, 2020) Review – The Amazon Echo speakers are portable smart speakers from Amazon with built-in Alexa. The third-generation Echo from last year featured a cylindrical-shape tube design with mesh fabric material.

Amazon Echo (4th Gen, 2020)’s all-new design does not just give Amazon’s iconic speaker a major facelift, but it is also needed to house all the goodies packed within: a 3.0″ neodymium woofer, 2x 0.8″ tweeters, a temperature sensor, and a built-in...

Amazon Echo (2020) Review: The world’s smartest magic eight-ball


The latest Amazon Echo takes the form of a bowling ball as it tumbles through 2020 to be used as the world's clearest sounding kitchen timer.

Great sound ; Aux jack supports audio passthrough ; Temperature sensor is cool

Not my favourite design ; Limited touch controls ; Not a massive improvement over last year’s Echo

When it comes down to it, there isn’t anything fundamentally wrong with the new Echo
