5.0 out of 5 stars Great sound for such a small device
By Melanie on November 21, 2020
HIGHLIGHTS of the new Echo Dot
1) The response time is a little faster than on its predecessor. That said, I don't know if it's me, but I feel like Alexa can't hear me as well as on my gen3.
2) Great new spherical shape.
3) I really like the new location of the light which is now located at the bottom of the device. I find it more visible since it illuminates the surface on which the device is placed.
4) The sound is "richer" with a little more bass and a wider angle of sound diffusion.
5) The installation is very easy, 5 minutes and it's done!

WEAKNESSES
1) The CHARCOAL echo comes with a WHITE power cable... we agree that it's not very aesthetic... in any case, I don't like it. If I chose a black color it's because there was a reason, wasn't there?
2) The power supply box is still as big as ever! Come on! it takes two power outlets wide...
3) The buttons are really ugly and look cheap compared to previous generations. They're made out of some kind of plastic and are a little bit raised. I definitely preferred the smooth and flat buttons of the Echo Dot 3.
4) Needs a few updates to improve the French Canadian version.

I mainly use the Echo Dot to listen to my music on my sound bar. It's the functions, stop, pause, up/down the sound, put the sound at 3 to 7, next, who's that artist, add that song to my playlist, etc. that make my music listening experience much more enjoyable. No need to change tabs, or get up, everything is controlled by voice! Really convenient the voice technology combined with a subscription such as Amazon Music, Deezer and/or Spootify to listen to your music.

SOUND | Compared to the Echo Dot 3rd generation, this one (4th gen) has a slightly improved sound. Probably this spherical style allows for a greater angle of sound diffusion. Rather than being propelled only upwards as on the 3rd gen, it diffuses both upwards and forward. In any case, if you don't like the sound of this dot, you can always pair your device with your sound bar/home theater. Personally, that's what I do, so sound quality is not a big concern for me. Having said that, I think it sounds really good for an alarm clock sized device! Also, the sound is much louder and richer than on the Echo Dot 3rd Gen no matter what some people say.

IN SUMMARY | It can be used as an alarm clock, a timer, a calendar reminder, a calculator, help you fall asleep at night, answer your questions, give you quizzes, etc. There are so many things that can be done with this device that it is impossible to list them all here! Also, if you have other types of smart equipment, such as light bulbs, smart plugs, etc. you will surely find your own connection with this Echo Dot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not too shabby eh.
By Brian Rodgers on October 23, 2020
It's a touch smaller than I thought. Sound is great on the new fourth Gen echo. Response is faster than the previous Gen's. The lights on the bottom reflects light on the surface well. I wouldn't say it's absolutely worth upgrading, if it's not necessary. It does the same thing as the 3rd gen, sound is a touch better than the 3rd gen, despite a few seconds faster in response time, I wouldn't suggest running out to upgrade. It is great for people who don't have one, or those who collect these devices.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a Big Fan of the Round Softball Design - Still Prefer the Gen 3 Hockey Puck Design
By The Tech Guy on November 24, 2020
The Echo Dot 4th Gen Speaker continues to be Amazon’s most affordable, entry level Echo speaker. Previous Echo Dots looked like Hockey Pucks but for the 4th Gen Dot Amazon decided to make it round like a ball. The Echo Dot 4th Gen is slightly smaller than an official sized softball. Amazon claims this new Dot sounds better than the old one however the improvements (if any) are marginal at best and certainly nothing to justify the huge increase in size.

As you might have guessed I’m not a fan of the new Echo Dot’s Softball Shape. The previous echo dots were small, compact and unobtrusive. They sat on the counter, under kitchen cabinets or could be wall or ceiling mounted to hide their appearance. The new ROUND Echo dot sticks out like a sore thumb, no matter where you put it. I have several Gen 2 and Gen 3 echo dots and they are wall and ceiling mounted and tucked away under my kitchen and bathroom cabinets … there is just no way to do this with the new Echo Dot.

Another problem with the Echo Dot 4th gen is the fabric covering. The Echo Dot 2nd Gen was all plastic body and was easy to clean especially when it got dirty in the kitchen. Likewise the Echo Dot 3rd gen only had fabric around the outside, the top button area was hard plastic … again easy to clean. The fabric covering on the Gen 4 Dot will get soiled and stained easily if you use the buttons on the top often. Maybe this was amazon’s idea … hoping you buy more dot’s when your old ones look worn and dirty. I do not recommend buying the White Echo dot as it will get dirty quickly.

*** WHITE POWER ADAPTER ? ***
One more perplexing thing about the new Echo Dot is the inclusion of a White Power adapter and cord with both White and BLACK Echo Dots. The White power adapter looks fine with the White Echo Dot however it looks odd and is very noticeable when using it with the Black Echo Dot especially when everything on your desk, dresser or counter top is black.

Overall I’m disappointed in the new Echo Dot Gen 4 speaker. There was a big improvement in sound quality between the Gen2 and Gen3 echo dots however there is very little improvement in the sound quality of the new Echo Dot Gen 4 and it’s nearly twice the size. Speaking of size I’m not a fan of the Softball sized speaker either. The shape is just odd … a little Retro looking perhaps but it just doesn’t fit with anything else on my counter tops, desk, dresser or shelves. The new design is difficult to hide and looks ridiculous when wall mounted. My advice would be to purchase the Echo Dot Gen 3 instead of the new Gen 4. The Gen 3 Dot sounds similar but is much smaller in size and blends into your decor much better. I’m not sure what Amazon’s plans are for the next generation of Echos and Echo Dots, but I have a feeling that the new round Softball design will not last and the next Echo Dot Gen 5 will go back to being a smaller, flatter speaker or as least more conventional design. I’m hoping they continue selling the Gen 3 Dot so you at least have a choice between Hockey Puck or Softball.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alexa+lightbulb changed my life!
Reviewed in the United States on December 21, 2020
Little backstory - I work full time from home and have a fully-functional office. After assembling and placing my desk and all my equipment where it needed to go, I realized that ALL of the plug ins on that side of the room are controlled by the lightswitch! That means if I want to shut off the light, my 3 computer monitors, ring light, speakers, alexa, TV, phone charger, webcam, microphone, AND MORE will not work. So each time I turn it off, it's a complete shutdown.

I purchased this lightbulb as an addition to my Alexa and my life has changed. I taped my light switch in the ON position - and put the lightbulb in the fixture. NOW I can leave my work gear on - and control the lights separately! (See video) If you have this problem, Alexa and her lightbulbs will change your life!

If this review helped you - please leave a thumbs-up!

(I was not paid or incentivized in any way to give this review. I purchased this product with my own hard-earned money!)
