Our honest review
- This amazon product is better looking than its predecessor for a cheaper price. It has a much more appealing design that easily fits in any home. It’s small, useful, sounds good for its size, and is reasonably priced.
- The Amazon Alexa speakers are known to have wider smart home support compared to the Google Assistant which means that they are the better choice if you are looking to connect it with more smart products such as smart lights.
- The newer amazon products such as this speaker have improved voice detection compared to the older models which means that your Alexa will understand you more clearly and from further away.
- Because Amazon Alexa isn’t officially supported in South Africa, it is quite a hassle to install the app and link it with your speaker. Luckily, we do have a guide that explains it!
- If you are looking to play music all day long or you love a really good base, this probably isn’t the best choice for you. Although the speakers are pretty good, there are better smart speakers out there for music quality such as the Sonos smart speakers or the Amazon Echo 3rd Gen.
The Amazon Echo 2nd Gen smart speaker is an affordable smart speaker with good sound quality that will easily fit into any space without drawing too much attention to itself. It is the perfect speaker to start off your smart product collection and is easy to use once installed.
