Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen) review: Growing up to set the benchmark

 

Amazon's smallest smart speaker has undergone a radical change, so will the Echo Dot's (4th Gen) new design be enough to garner attention over the competition?

Charming new design ; Great audio quality for its size ; Alexa Guard protection ; Affordable cost

LED clock should be default

Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen) Review – Sphere of Influence

 

Alexa is getting a fresh wardrobe for 2020, and the new Echo Dot (4th Gen) is going spherical just like its bigger Echo sibling. As always, the pitch is fairly straightforward: at $49.99, the Echo …

Alexa functionality keeps getting better ; Affordable way to add Alexa to a new room ; Slight improvement in audio quality ; Clock display is very useful

Less discreet than 3rd Gen Echo Dot ; No line-in or smart home hub support ; Last-gen Echo Dot makes a strong value alternative

Amazon Echo Dot (4th gen) with Clock review: The clock-equipped Echo Dot gets a spherical makeover

 

Aside from its new spherical design, the revamped Echo Dot with Clock doesn't veer far from the original's winning formula.

Spherical redesign ; LED clock display is a natural for the Echo Dot ; Alexa is tops at smart home control ; Slightly improved audio quality

Considerably taller than its predecessor

No question, the revamped Echo Dot with Clock looks radically different than its predecessor, and with its prominent yet tasteful LED display, this new clock-equipped Dot ups the ante as far as looks go.

Amazon Echo Dot (4th gen) review: The new Dot delivers a revamped look and (slightly) better sound

 

The latest Echo Dot is technically the best Dot yet, but only by a narrow margin.

Eye-catching spherical design ; Modestly improved audio quality ; Easy setup ; New tap-to-snooze gesture

Somewhat bigger than its predecessor ; The discounted third-gen Echo Dot is significantly cheaper

There’s no question that the new Echo Dot is better than the third-gen Dot it’s replacing, but is it a better? Hmm. Yes, the fourth-gen Echo Dot has slightly better audio quality than its predecessor, but we’re not talking a knockout punch here. And...

Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen) with Clock Review

 

Amazon Echo Dot with Clock (4th Generation) Review – We like the 4th generation of Amazon Echo ‘s new sphere design, along with the internal upgrades. But if you were hoping they'd also upgrade the previous Echo Dot with Clock , then hope no more.

Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen) with Clock comes with the whole new sphere design that adds aesthetics to the room. Functionality wise, it is not much different from the previous generation so if you already have it, you may not need an upgrade unless you...

Amazon Echo Dot (4th gen) review

 

The Amazon Echo Dot is one again the best smart speaker for less than $50, but the $60 Echo Dot with Clock is the better value.

But, I like the sphere for the Echo Dot with Clock, as it raises the display a bit and makes it easier to read. For my money, I’d opt for the Amazon Echo Dot with Clock; it’s just $10 more, but the addition of a clock makes it infinitely more useful.

Amazon Echo Dot with Clock review (2020)

 

The second Amazon Echo Dot with Clock ($60) is as useful as the first edition of the versatile Alexa smart speaker, plus the LED display looks great on the updated round profile.

While this second iteration of the Echo Dot with Clock isn’t much different from the first, the simple addition of a display makes the speaker a better device, not a more complicated one. If only all IoT companies sought to solve problems using the...

Amazon Echo Dot (4th Generation) review

 

The fourth-gen Echo Dot is an improved performer all round

Improved Alexa responses ; Enhanced sound quality ; Solid build

Nothing at this level

Considering which voice assistant to introduce to your home? The new Echo Dot is the most compelling and affordable case for choosing Alexa

Amazon Echo Dot (4th gen) and Echo Dot with Clock review: cheap Alexa is better than ever

 

The 4th gen Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock excel in most areas

Amazon Echo Dot 2020 review: It's now the Echo Mini

 

There's a new Echo Dot with a new design for 2020 - but is it any good?

Better as a standalone speaker than before ; Footprint the same as previous Dot ; All the skills of Alexa ; Minor performance improvements

It's less discreet than before ; Essentially the same experience as last-gen Echo Dot

The 2020 Echo Dot is likely to find favour with those who want a compact speaker for a small space. Acoustically, it's now better suited than previous Echo Dot devices, so it functions better as a standalone speaker for music. At the same time, the...
