Amazon Echo Dot (4th Generation) review

 

The fourth-gen Echo Dot is an improved performer all round

Improved Alexa responses ; Enhanced sound quality ; Solid build

Nothing at this level

Considering which voice assistant to introduce to your home? The new Echo Dot is the most compelling and affordable case for choosing Alexa

Amazon Echo Dot (4th gen) and Echo Dot with Clock review: cheap Alexa is better than ever

 

The 4th gen Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock excel in most areas

Amazon Echo Dot 2020 review: It's now the Echo Mini

 

There's a new Echo Dot with a new design for 2020 - but is it any good?

Better as a standalone speaker than before ; Footprint the same as previous Dot ; All the skills of Alexa ; Minor performance improvements

It's less discreet than before ; Essentially the same experience as last-gen Echo Dot

The 2020 Echo Dot is likely to find favour with those who want a compact speaker for a small space. Acoustically, it's now better suited than previous Echo Dot devices, so it functions better as a standalone speaker for music. At the same time, the...

Amazon Echo Dot 4 & Dot with clock review

 

The fourth-generation Echo Dot and Dot with clock have the same spherical design as the larger Echo. Here's our verdict.

Alexa responds quickly ; Better bass than 3rd-gen Dot

Sound quality not the best ; Light ring can be easily blocked

The entry-level Echo Dot is great value and Alexa is more responsive than on the 3rd-gen Dot.

Amazon Echo Dot with Clock 4th Gen Review

 

The new Amazon Echo Dot with Clock (4th Gen) is exactly what it says on the tin, a Amazon Echo Dot 4th Gen with an LED clock on the front. The new model offers the same added benefits of its clock-less sibling, with enhanced sound, easier to use...

– Delightful bedside clock, improved design and enhanced audio

– Still not the best for audiophiles

Amazon Echo Dot with Clock (4th Gen) makes a strong step forward from the last generation – in design, audio and ever-improving Alexa functionality. However, you’ll have to spend a bit more on another device for a quality audio experience and, if you...

Amazon Echo Dot 4th Gen Review

 

Amazon Echo Dot offers one of the easiest routes into the Alexa ecosystem, with its low price and small size while still packing in all the functionality. With the fourth generation, this trend continues with an orb-flavoured redesign to up the style...

– Best design yet, easy to access controls and improved speaker

– Middling music chops and restrictive low power mode

Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen) takes the tried and true small smart speaker and gives it a pleasant refresh. You’ve won’t find tons of innovation here but improved audio, added style and handy controls keep the range as the ideal smart speaker entry point.

Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen) review: Growing up to set the benchmark

 

Amazon's smallest smart speaker has undergone a radical change, so will the Echo Dot's (4th Gen) new design be enough to garner attention over the competition?

Charming new design ; Great audio quality for its size ; Alexa Guard protection ; Affordable cost

LED clock should be default

Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen) Review

 

The fourth-generation Echo Dot speaker doesn't offer particularly impressive sound quality, but for $50, it's still the best basic gateway to Amazon's Alexa voice assistant.

Only a cosmetic change from previous model ; Weak bass

Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen) Review – Sphere of Influence

 

Alexa is getting a fresh wardrobe for 2020, and the new Echo Dot (4th Gen) is going spherical just like its bigger Echo sibling. As always, the pitch is fairly straightforward: at $49.99, the Echo …

Alexa functionality keeps getting better ; Affordable way to add Alexa to a new room ; Slight improvement in audio quality ; Clock display is very useful

Less discreet than 3rd Gen Echo Dot ; No line-in or smart home hub support ; Last-gen Echo Dot makes a strong value alternative

Amazon Echo Dot (4th gen) review: The new Dot delivers a revamped look and (slightly) better sound

 

The latest Echo Dot is technically the best Dot yet, but only by a narrow margin.

Eye-catching spherical design ; Modestly improved audio quality ; Easy setup ; New tap-to-snooze gesture

Somewhat bigger than its predecessor ; The discounted third-gen Echo Dot is significantly cheaper

There’s no question that the new Echo Dot is better than the third-gen Dot it’s replacing, but is it a better? Hmm. Yes, the fourth-gen Echo Dot has slightly better audio quality than its predecessor, but we’re not talking a knockout punch here. And...
