In this review, I am going to dive into some of the specifics of the Amazon’s Echo Dot (3rd Generation). This smart voice activated speakers has many great selling points. I can personally attest to the great sound quality and usability as I have been using mine for about a year now.
Why the Amazon Alexa Echo Dot?
The third-generation of Amazon’s Echo Dot ($29) looks sleek and sounds great. It comes with a greatly improved audio which distinctly surpasses the Google Home Mini. In addition, this $29 Echo can easily replace the larger $99 Echo as this new dot offers the same sound system in a smaller size and at a lower price. Although this Dot may look smaller I believe it is by far the better deal. Therefore, that makes it my favorite entry-level smart speaker.
Are you an external speaker owner?
If you currently own an old Echo Dot version and mainly use it to plug into a bigger and better speaker, there’s no need to get the latest version (For those who don’t know – if you bypass the main Dot speaker using the 3.5 mm jack the audio will output to the external device you have connected). However, if you use your Echo Dot as a primary speaker, you’ll want the Amazon’s Echo Dot (3rd Generation).
Keep in Mind
Please keep in mind that while I do highly suggest this product, I would also like to mention that there are many other great speakers available today. Additionally, there is a highly competitive market for smart speakers and while this speaker is a front runner, there are many more to review.
