About this deal

When not testing out the latest gizmos, you’ll find Simon either catching up with the newest releases at his local cinema or out shooting with his beloved compact camera. Where the Echo Dot finds things understandably hardest is with bass, especially with regard to both force and detail. To help you out, here’s everything you need to know if you’re deciding between the Echo and the Echo Dot. The biggest improvement to the range is in the Echo Dot with Clock (which is the third version with a clock but with the fifth-gen speaker).

The speaker itself has been massively upgraded, The sound is leaps and bounds better than the previous model, with thumpier bass and louder volume.you can get the Echo Dot with an LED display, which allows you to display the current time in style. Mashable is a registered trademark of Ziff Davis and may not be used by third parties without express written permission. It makes the smart speaker a little less appealing to those in the UK, who miss out on a game-changing feature for those with spotty internet connection.

The fourth-generation also has a built-in smart hub, so you can control Zigbee smart devices from the smart speaker without having to create a separate smart home skill or connect a separate smart hub. The old, third-generation Echo Dot had a shorter and flat form factor, making it more discreet and easier to mount on a wall, so some people might not like the design change here. Just speak to Alexa in your room of choice, and you can easily monitor lighting, temperature, and more with verbal commands. Every smart device now requires you to agree to a series of terms and conditions before you can use it — contracts that no one actually reads. It also lights up yellow when you have a system notification, though it's easy to turn this off in Settings.Plus, both the Echo Dot devices have that nifty tap functionality on the top, which the Echo 4th generation doesn’t. I toggled it on and initially got a warning that the Dot was too close to an Eero and would not extend anything.
