Amazon Echo review (2019): Low-priced, but not low-end

 

The latest Echo does just about everything right: It sounds great, it's pretty cheap and it handles voice commands like a charm. The only downside is that there are a lot of other smart speakers to choose.

Great sound quality ; Responsive microphones ; Affordable price ; Widely support Alexa ecosystem

No major microphone upgrades

Amazon Echo (2019) review

 

We put the 2019 Amazon Echo to the test.

Beefed-up sound Hands-free voice commands Personalized voice profiles Alexa!

Not much is new Basically the Echo Plus No Zigbee

The Amazon Echo (2019) doesn’t feel particular new, given both its form and function is modeled on the existing Echo Plus – but it's still an excellent smart speaker that offers better sound quality than the second-generation Echo.

Amazon Echo (3rd Generation) review

 

A new and improved third version of the Echo smart speaker

Balanced and relatively detailed ; Sonic step up on its predecessor ; Full Amazon Alexa compatibility

Soundstage can get busy ; Mediocre timing and organisation ; Dynamically lacking

The new Echo has loads of features and sounds quite good, but the Echo Plus had given us hopes of even more

Amazon Echo (2019) review: middle child syndrome

 

Amazon's latest Echo speaker splits the difference between a high-end smart speaker and an entry-level model

Good volume and bass response ; Microphones are excellent at picking up voice commands ; Costs less than high-end smart speakers

You can get the basics done for half the price with an Echo Dot ; Sound can be muddy at times

Amazon’s latest Echo speaker sounds better than ever, but has a lot of competition within Amazon’s own lineup, not to mention from other smart speakers.

Amazon Echo (3rd Generation)

 

The third-generation Amazon Echo smart speaker is basically just a more affordable Echo Plus, thanks to some minor compromises you're unlikely to notice.

Powerful, well-balanced sound for the size and price.

Alexa can be a little awkward compared with Google Assistant.

Bottom Line: The third-generation Amazon Echo smart speaker is basically just a more affordable Echo Plus, thanks to some minor compromises you're unlikely to notice.

Amazon Echo (2019) review: Can't touch this

 

If music is the most important thing for you, then it's hard to ignore the boosted performance of the third-gen Amazon Echo smart speaker.

Value for money ; Build and design upgrades ; Sound quality ; Flexibility of connection ; Alexa voice control's versatility

App is a little slow ; No Zigbee controller (but that doesn't really matter) ; Puts Echo Plus into question

If music is the most important thing for you, then it's hard to ignore the boosted performance of the new Echo. Previous Echos had limitations, but to have a great low price and pleasing sound quality means that the new Echo sweeps those criticisms aside.

Amazon Echo (3rd Generation) review

 

Alexa, give me better performance for less money

Big, bold and much-improved sound ; Effortless(ish) voice control ; Can form part of a stereo set-up

Can get edgy at big volumes ; Bass sounds rather distant from the rest of the music

Can you live without Zigbee? Of course you can

Amazon Echo 2019 review: A smart speaker that's too comfortable

 

The new Amazon Echo is a solid speaker with a great voice assistant in Alexa, but we're not sure who we'd recommend it to.

The new Amazon Echo boasts improved sound quality for a reasonable price.

The midrange sound falters, and the Echo doesn't bring much else new to the countertop than its upgraded speakers.

$100 seems like an appropriate price for the new Amazon Echo, but it falls between two obvious categories -- not feeling truly wallet-friendly or technically top-grade.
