I purchased the Echo on prime day along with the Eufy Lumos Smart Bulb-White bulb. It came to about £65 at the time. I wish I had bought two in hindsight as a gift!
I chose the Echo rather than the Dot purely because of reviews that the quality of speaker on the Echo is better. A few friends of mine have the Dot so I knew of the benchmark quality, and I can say that the Echo is far better. It's crisp and fills the room.
I mostly use this for listening to Audiobooks on Audible and it's fantastic. In the day I might have this sat in the living room where my friends and I can ask Alexa to play various songs we call out. And in the evening I often move it (because I only have the one :( ) into my room and ask Alexa to play one of my audiobooks for a given time - e.g. "play the Secret Barrister on Audible" and "stop playing after 30 minutes".
As I said, I also installed the Eufy white bulb. Thus far, I must admit it. is quite gimmicky. I don't really end up asking Alexa to do anything with the build. If I had more of a choice I would have bought one of the coloured bulbs, because they have more features like synchronising with the music etc. But again, probably just quite gimmicky. One potential use I'm yet to do is just move the bulb into my bedroom so that I can ask Alexa to turn the light off while I'm already in bed.
But anyway, yes, would definitely recommend.
A few months down the line, I have to say that Alexa has become a very welcome member of the family. The husband uses it for the digital radio function. The kids use it for music streaming function and the various other apps mean that Alexa is carried around the house by everybody. She was the heart and soul of the party at Christmas, she was taken outside in summer and she played some great chillout music and she is a constant companion to anybody doing house work.
We are currently looking into purchasing some echo dots to put in the bedrooms and the kitchen, and we are also looking at doing the whole smart lighting and appliance thing.
The verdict is: If you don't have Alexa in your home, do yourself a favour and purchase her today.
When this arrived, it was so small once taken out of the box.
When I paired with everything, I wasn’t expecting very much volume or bass.
As soon as a asked for my favourite Spotify playlist , WOW! Incredible sound, it really does fill the room.
Really good rounded bass and good highs.
Even when on high volume , Alexa can still hear my voice commands.
Beautiful formed, as with all Amazon products, solid build quality.
If I was going to buy a Bluetooth speaker, I would get this!
Alexa is good, but still needs more learning commands in the Alexa app.
After a while you really do get to know the right word commands to get Alexa to do the right thing.
Set up was quite tricky as the directions said i had to go to settings and turn off smart switch to enable it to connect it. However my phone didnt have smart switch.
So spoke to a team member on libe chat .who was so unhelpful. Refered me to live chat to an echo expert. Again no help at all.
Was begining to think I'd wasted my money.
Decided to google my phone and smart switch. Where i found the answers on how to connect it.
Once connected i havent looked back.
The Alexa AI does seem to be able to answer questions more often and to a higher standard but like all competitors can still be easily tricked but is mostly there! Where the Echo/Alexa falls down is how it handles third party software; While it is true that it can handle third party apps, it feels a bit convoluted and is a bit annoying that you have to ask Alexa to use an app - it does feel easier to do things yourself sometime!
Good bit of kit at a great price
Really handy for controlling smart home elements
Alexa will make a lot of small tasks in your life far easier
good speaker for the price
Using third party software is not the best and can be annoying
Alexa still misses/misunderstands certain questions
Would definitely recommend and cant wait to try the new model!!!
