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.

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 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 (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.

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.

Amazon Echo Dot 3rd-gen

 

Amazon has updated the Echo Dot with a new design, a new speaker and the option of stereo sound. Here's why it's the best Echo yet.

Expert review by (engadget.com)

All of Amazon's new Echo speakers reviewed

 

Amazon's new Echo Dot does everything the original did and sounds significantly better than before. If you prefer Alexa to the Google Assistant, the Echo Dot is a great way to add a smart speaker to your home.

Adds significant bass to an existing Echo speaker setup ; Pairing with other speakers is straightforward

Expensive

But I don't imagine many people specifically buying pairs of the Echo Dot or Plus specifically for stereo music. Anyone thinking about that is likely considering better speakers than Amazon sells. This all makes the existence of the Echo Sub even more...
