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 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


Amazon's entry-level Echo is still one of its best

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: Price slashed to £30 in Amazon's bank holiday sale


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.

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


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...

Amazon Echo Dot review


Compact and unobtrusive ; Connects to any audio system ; Far-field voice recognition ; Constantly evolving functionality

On-board sound is weak

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd gen) review: Improved sound and design, but UX still spotty


The advantage with the Echo Dot is that you can pair it with an external speaker if you so wish.

The verdict is quite simple: If you’ve never bought a smart speaker before and are curious as to what’s on offer, the Amazon Echo Dot is the right entry point in this segment. At Rs 4,499 it’s not priced too badly either. Be prepared for a learning...

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd gen) review: A big step up in terms of design and musicality


The new third-generation Echo Dot delivers better audio performance than the Google Home Mini.

A very inexpensive voice-powered smart home controller ; Best sounding audio in its class ; Pretty industrial design

It’s still not a speaker I’d recommend for critical music listening ; $10 more expensive than the 2nd-gen model if you don’t care about its musicality ; Google Home Mini offers tighter integration with Android smartphones

If you’re buying your first smart speaker and you’re mostly interested in controlling your smart home devices and retrieving news, weather forecasts, and other information from the internet, save yourself 10 bucks and buy the second-generation Echo Dot...
