Amazon Echo (4th Generation) review

 

The Echo gets a revamp, but is it better all round?

Expansive bass in a small design ; Lots of smart features ; Classy build and finish

Slightly underwhelming treble ; Not fully omnidirectional

Don’t be fooled by its playful design; the new Echo means business, delivering a weighty sound and full command of your smart home

Amazon Echo (4th gen) review: another hit for Alexa, but this time it's a ball

 

The new Amazon Echo is the best yet for features, but it's not necessarily the best smart speaker for everyone

Amazon Echo (2020) review

 

Amazon's excellent new smart speaker ensures its rivals must keep their eye on the ball

Fuller sound ; Built-in Zigbee hub ; Alexa is more responsive

Light ring not as useful ; Skills still a bit rubbish ; Amazon is always listening

An all-round upgrade that makes the Echo sound smarter than ever

Amazon Echo (4th generation) review: And after all, you're my wonderball

 

The 2020 Amazon Echo is a design rework that takes on a surprising spherical form, but is it a worthy improvement over the established existing model?

Improved sound ; New hardware ; Ease of setup ; Generally available on deals ; Alexa can do so much

New design can make it hard to see light ring ; Larger footprint ; Echo Studio the real room-filler

The previous Echo was great value and this newly designed version improves on the offering with new technology, a faster Alexa, and better sound.

Amazon Echo 4

 

Amazon completely redesigned the Echo speaker range for 2020 and made some internal upgrades too. Here's our verdict on the fourth-generation Echo.

Amazon Echo (4th Gen) review: New look, same outstanding results

 

Amazon takes a gamble on the new Echo (4th Gen) by changing it up with a totally new design. It's daring, but will it be enough to make consumers take notice?

Charming new spherical design ; Dazzling LED light ring ; Acts as an Amazon Sidewalk Bridge ; Great sounding audio

Bass strains at highest volume

Amazon Echo (4th Generation) Review

 

As powerful as the Echo Plus ; Strong bass for the size ; Built-in smart home hub

High frequencies don't get quite as much finesse as they could ; Alexa can still be awkward to talk to

The fourth-generation Amazon Echo speaker takes the sound quality and smart home hub capabilities of the Echo Plus and puts it in a new round package.

Amazon Echo (4th Gen) Review – Alexa gets vocal

 

It's six years since the first Amazon Echo arrived, igniting a whole new category of smart speakers and making the idea of talking to a disembodied voice a little less weird, and now Alexa is…

Impressive musical performance ; Plenty of bass ; Smart home hub built-in ; Alexa wake-word almost never fails

Midrange is still the weak spot ; Are you a Google household or an Amazon one?

Amazon Echo (4th Gen) review: The more things change, the more they stay the same

 

Amazon still has the best speaker for smart home control, but it still trails Sonos and Google in musicality.

Zigbee, Bluetooth LE, and Amazon Sidewalk radios onboard ; Alexa can control a huge number of smart home systems and devices ; Plenty of bang for the buck

Google’s Nest Audio sounds better ; Sonos supports more music-streaming services ; Polarizing industrial design

The Amazon Echo (4th Gen) is a pretty good audio performer, but it’s a smart speaker that’s also equipped with a Zigbee radio. I’m taking a wait-and-see approach to Amazon’s Sidewalk network for now. It sounds promising, but there’s nothing tangible in...

Amazon Echo (4th gen) review

 

Strong audio and even stronger smart home skills make the new Amazon Echo the most well-rounded smart speaker you can buy.

As I said earlier, if you want the best-sounding smart speaker, the Sonos One is the way to go. But if you’re looking for a smart speaker that will not just play tunes, but act as a central smart home hub, the 4th-generation Echo is the best choice.
