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

While the previous Echo Dots were cheap ways to extend smart home control all over your home, they weren't the most attractive devices and had weedy sounds. The Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) as a vast improvement on the originals, even though it costs...

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd generation) review

 

The most enticing way to bring Alexa into your home

Clear, solid sound ; Improved Alexa capabilities ; Budget price

Alexa intelligence is limited

For not a lot of money you get a whole load of smart voice functionality and decent sound

Amazon Echo Dot with Clock review: the best-selling Echo, now with an LED display

 

The Echo Dot's transition to a bedside table or kitchen counter top near you is complete

Stylish design ; New LED display ; Good audio reproduction for its size ; Range of colours to choose from ; Physical mics off button ; Same best-selling Echo Dot core

More expensive than Amazon Echo Dot ; Not suitable for providing music to a large room

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Generation) review

 

According to Amazon, the Amazon Echo Dot, which is now available in its third (and best) iteration, is the best-selling speaker of all-time.  This impressive little smart speaker makes calls almost anywhere in your country of residence, gives you...

Small, fabric design Easy setup and integration Clear call quality Improved Alexa app

No auxiliary cable included Sound quality isn’t quite there

The Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Generation) is a surprising product. It's small, but it offers a gateway into the world of the smart home and improved audio over its previous models, as well as the Google Home Mini.

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 with Clock review: Alexa, what's the time?

 

The new Echo Dot with Clock is a neat idea that's ideal for the bedroom as an alternative to a traditional alarm clock.

Timer countdown ; Great design ; Good sound quality for the size

It's not going to be the only speaker you want in your home

The Echo Dot with Clock is a no brainer in many senses. It's an ideal addition to a bedroom, less distracting than larger devices with a display, but still performing that essential job of showing you the time in the middle of the night. Equally,...

Amazon Echo Dot review (third-gen 2018): This changes everything

 

Amazon's new Echo Dot is an upgrade on the previous model, but the new Echo Input takes away some of its potential purchasers.

Alexa voice-control and all the smarts that brings ; Hugely improved sound quality ; Affordable

Potentially undercut by Echo Input (if you're just looking for an Alexa controller ; Not speaker)

Increasingly smart, better sounding audio and a stronger design than before: the Amazon Echo Dot is the easy access point for Alexa's skills and voice control, whether as a first Echo device, or an expansion in a growing system.

Amazon Echo Dot with Clock

 

Adding a simple display turns the third-gen Echo Dot into a great bedside alarm clock, but it can also be useful in the kitchen as it can also show timers. Here's our Echo Dot with Clock review.

Amazon Echo Dot with Clock review

 

One less question to ask

An Echo Dot....with a clock! ; Excellent voice pickup ; Works with any music service ; Pleasing minimalist aesthetic Decent sound ; Decent sound

Only one colour ; Slightly more expensive

Unless Amazon gives the next one a top hat, it’s hard to see how the Echo Dot gets much better than this
