Amazon Echo Spot

 

Amazon Echo Spot: This shrunken alternative to the Echo Show is much more than an alarm clock – it's the best Alexa device yet. Here's why.

Useful screen ; Video calling works well ; Compact dimensions ; More intuitive than audio-only Echo devices

Sound could be better

This is far more than an alarm clock; it’s the best Echo to date.

Amazon Echo Spot review

 

Amazon's display-toting smart speaker is worth a punt...

Sharp screen ; Good range of features ; Neat design ; Clear midrange

Divisive camera ; Sound quality could be improved ; Needs more video content

One of the most capable smart-devices we’ve come across

Amazon Echo Spot review: That hits the spot

 

The Spot hits a number of key areas: it's the best designed of the Echo range, giving it immediate appeal. Whether in the bedroom, on a kitchen

'Alexa Calling' video calls ; Cute design ; Sounds pretty good considering the size ; The smartest radio alarm clock you'll ever find

'Drop In' could cause privacy concerns ; Price feels a little high compared to Echo Dot ; Small screen for video playback

The Amazon Echo Spot hits a number of key areas: it's the best designed of the Echo collection, giving it immediate appeal. Whether in the bedroom, on a kitchen worktop or side table in the living room, the Spot fulfils its role as master of all.

Amazon Echo Spot review

 

For her next trick, Alexa takes on the form of a cracking smart alarm clock

Sleek, compact design ; Alexa with all her powers ; Great as a bedside clock

Only modest sound quality ; Not many useful visual skills yet ; Bedroom camera can be unsettling

Alexa's sleek alarm clock form finds the purpose that the Echo Show lacks

Amazon Echo Spot initial review: Smart alarm clock or so much more?

 

The Echo Spot is the cutest of the Echo devices, an idea extension that takes Alexa's skills into your bedroom, your office or onto your dressing

Cute form factor ; Offers all the Alexa functionality in a new package ; Display

It's quite a step-up in price compared to the Dot

When it comes to design, the Echo Spot is probably the most appealing of the Echo range. It's softer form makes it nicer to look at than the Echo Show, but it's important to recognise the difference between these two devices. While the Show sits nicely...

Round screen means video cropping ; Pricier than the regular Echo

The Amazon Echo Spot is the best-looking Echo product out there: a versatile, Alexa-toting video device that wants to be in your bedroom, your kitchen, your office...

Amazon Echo Spot review: Now just £90 this Amazon Prime Day

 

Amazon's Echo Spot is a smart alarm clock and a cheaper alternative to the Echo Show

Useful touchscreen features ; Small design

Pricey ; Sound quality isn't the best

The one fly in the ointment - and it’s a pretty major one - is the price. At £120, it’s £40 more than twice as pricey as an Echo Dot, £40 more than the Echo 2 and only £30 less than the all-singing, all-dancing smart-hub capable Echo Plus. That makes...

Much more than a mere alarm clock, the Echo Spot is a fully fledged Alexa device with a cute round screen. Here's our full review.

Amazon Echo Spot review

 

Gaze into the abyss, and the abyss gazes back. That's what's running through my head on my first night testing the Amazon Echo Spot. I'm lying in bed struggling to fall asleep as I sometimes do, and it's sitting there displaying the time on my...

The Echo Spot is a well-made device with a good-looking design, and it's handy for quick, voice-activated video calls. Sound quality was better than we expected, and noticeably better than the Echo Dot's.

The Echo Spot doesn't currently support YouTube, nor does it offer many video sources for your flash briefings. The touchscreen adds less than it should to the Alexa experience, and it's too small to be helpful unless you're within a few feet of the...

The Echo Spot is a fine for what it is, but Amazon still hasn't done enough to convince us that Alexa needs a touchscreen at all.

Amazon Echo Spot review: The smartest alarm clock of them all

 

The most attractive of all Amazon's smart speakers but sound quality isn't the best

Despite its weaknesses, then, I rather like the Amazon Echo Spot. It's a rather well made, attractive-looking smart speaker that, like the Echo Show, adds an extra dimension with the addition of the touchscreen and webcam.
