Amazon 3rd Generation Echo Dot Smart Speaker with Alexa - Sandstone Fabric
Perfect bedroom buddy
Love it. Bought it for the bedroom. Perfect little size and sound. Got the larger Alexa downstairs so just wanted something small in the bedroom. Love the improvements as much better sound than the old one.
The best assistant
I bought this for my daughter. She already owns an Echo which sits in her living room and gets used on a daily basis. She wanted a smart speaker for her bedroom and I'm a firm believer in trying to stay with one format (Google/Alexa/Siri).
The sound quality is not as good as on the Echo, but it's a small speaker and she only wants it for her bedside table to act as an alarm clock, radio and to control the rest of her smart kit (Nest Thermostat and such). For that it's easily fit for purpose.
I use Siri on my phone, Alexa on my tablet and Google on my smart speaker, so I tend to get confused. Given the choice, I think Alexa would have to be my preferred assistant; it seems to integrate easier and trying to get Google to work on an iPhone is a nightmare! The more I see of the Echo and Fire devices, the more I prefer them.
