To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Premium music sound. Very bassy and loud, almost par with my JBL 2.1 Soundbar (2019 Model). Im not using it as a Smart Home IOT yet. The Alexa AI reply capabilities might not be as good as Google Assistant, as replied / answered are quite limited and not as smart as Google. Sometimes Alexa doesnt understand my command / question but Google Assistant having no issue at all. I need to completely ON/OFF this Echo device as it quite laggy or sometimes answering me with loud volume and while play news / music in low volume (after ON/OFF) thereafter its back to normal. TBH, the overall spherical shape design were not intrigued me at all (compared to the google Nest audio) but the the premium sound really WOW and WILL blown you away!! My room is quite huge (about 180sqft) and i just volume up to about half, it totally rattled and shaking my entire room esp when listening to those party or techno genre! thats insane!! Kudos to the Amazon Speaker Designer team, but at the same time, the overall Alexa apps/website ecocystem need to be revamped to make it simple and easy to use (its pain in the ass to find and tweak each of them) as well as the overall Amazon website - its not easy (really sorry to those Amazon fans) thanks for reading. Loving my ECHO 4th gen.
Surprisingly Alexa doesn’t integrate with many technologies like LG TV, Bose speakers etc. Please do check integration capability before deciding to buy echo. Ideally there should be list of compatible devices by country given in tech specs.
Got it on Prime Day, which was a great deal. Sound is good; with a good enough bass for a kitchen radio. Love how handy that I can change channel, set the timer without having to wash my hands to touch the device. Alexa tells you jokes too!
