Amazon Echo Dot (5th Gen) Review

 

Convenient tap gestures ; Well-balanced sound ; Can serve as an Eero mesh network node

No 3.5mm jack ; Limited frequency range

The fifth-generation Amazon Echo Dot adds tap gestures and mesh networking, but is otherwise nearly identical to the previous version.

Amazon Echo Dot Kids (5th Gen)

 

Amazon's child-focused Echo Dot comes with the same hardware as the grown-up Dot, plus a year's worth of steeply discounted kids content.

Exactly the same hardware as the grown-up Dot ; Colorful “Owl” and “Dragon” designs ; Two-year (rather than 90-day) warranty ; A year of steeply discounted Amazon Kids+ access

Kids+ content can be hit or miss ; TV shows and movies on Kids+ require a Fire Tablet or Echo Show

The Echo Dot Kids gives you a year’s worth of access to the massive Amazon Kids+ library for a fraction of the cost, while offering the same hardware and features as the superlative Echo Dot.

Amazon Echo Dot (5th Gen) review

 

The Amazon Echo Dot (5th Gen) is an affordable smart home entry point with Alexa on standby and good sound for its size. A room temperature sensor and eero built-in make the Echo Dot more intuitive, t

On the topic of price, I might recommend shelling out $10 more for the Echo Dot with Clock version, especially if you plan to use the Alexa speaker in a spot where having the time at a glance offers convenience. Otherwise, the Amazon Echo Dot (5th Gen)...

Amazon Echo Dot with Clock (5th gen, 2022) review: Can't judge a smart speaker by its cover

 

Just when it seems there's nothing else that could be packed into Amazon's small smart speakers, it goes and releases the new Echo Dot with Clock (2022) and proves us wrong. But is the update worth th Doing more with less...space.

Better sound quality than last year's model ; New LED display features are helpful ; Can expand your Wi-Fi coverage ; The new tap controls bring added convenience ; The built-in temperature sensor can be used for smart home automations

It lacks the 3.5mm audio jack ; Only available in two light colors

Amazon continues to find ways to make its smallest smart speaker an even better value by improving existing features and sound quality and including new ones, like added functionality to the LED display and eero compatibility. The limited color choices...

Amazon Echo Dot with Clock (5th gen) review

 

Refining an already successful smart speaker

Clock feature looks good ; Useful tap gestures ; Reasonable sound quality for the size

No more 3.5mm port ; Do you really need the clock?

Working just like the latest Amazon Echo Dot (5th generation), but with a rather neat-looking clock feature, this is the ideal smart speaker for most homes.

Amazon Echo Dot (5th gen) review: Small speaker, big sound

 

Amazon's small Echo sounds even better than before. It's a winner.

Improved sound quality ; Sound great in a pair ; Accessible price point

No AirPlay or Cast support ; No built-in Zigbee hub ; No 3.5mm port

Of all Amazon's Echo devices, the Echo Dot is the easiest to recommended to most people. It's got most of the same capabilities as its bigger, more expensive siblings and - with this year's improved speaker - the sound quality is better than it ever...
