Ama­zon Echo Dot (2nd gen)

T3 - - Top 10 -

£49.99, ama­

The Echo Dot has been neck-and­neck with Google’s Home Mini as the world’s best-sell­ing smart speaker, so it’s no sur­prise that Ama­zon has given its baby Alexa de­vice a re­fresh in time for the lu­cra­tive fes­tive shop­ping sea­son. Like the Echo Plus up­grade, the all-new Dot gets more rounded con­tours and a stylish fab­ric cover. To our eyes, it now looks more like a teeny pouffé than a speaker, but at least it’ll blend in with your home fur­nish­ings. It also joins the Echo Plus in get­ting more vol­ume and en­hanced sound qual­ity which, con­sid­er­ing the price tag won’t be chang­ing, makes it a bit of a steal. Whether or not this lat­est Echo Dot is bet­ter than its iden­ti­cally priced ri­val is ir­rel­e­vant – it’s newer, and that should be enough to put it at the top of your kids’ Christ­mas wish list.

T3 SAYS: Now with more mus­cle and bet­ter clothes, the Echo Dot is an at­trac­tive stock­ing filler.
