Very handy for those with slight dementia problems!
I'm glad I purchased this 'little helper'...
The screen is small in relation to handheld devices like a phone or a Fire as you will not expect to view it from a couple of feet. Then it takes up a fair amount of real estate unlike a Fire or an Echo Dot. You could use it in a kitchen for recipes but it is fabric covered and not going to be easy to clean. Also unlike a similar size Kindle Fire it is not portable.
It is a neat bit of kit, probably easy to use, but you really need to know why you want it, how you would use it, and where you would put it.
Well to start with, I'm not a great fan of Alexa, so probably not the best device to purchase. However, I find Alexa on the Echo Show, has not got a flipping clue what I'm asking for. Too much irrelevant product placement and totally irrelevant links to things that have no connection to what I have originally asked.
I like my music and was expecting a device that cost around £100, to have a reasonable quality of sound, not so. I cannot overstate the absolute really dismal quality of sound, there is simply no differentiation between bass, mid and high end, it is simply all mashed together. While there are some nice features such as subtitles if you are interested in doing Karaoke in the kitchen while you cook your pasta, I would prefer a bit more higher end sound technology.
OK lets cut to the chase, if you are an Alexa fan, want to control your light bulbs, door bell and teas-maid, partner, cat or dog, through verbal commands then this is your bit of kit. If you are looking for something which you can load your own apps on, has reasonable quality audio and visual, then save your hard earned cash.
I feel this is a slightly over-hyped and fairly pointless bit of kit. Go out and walk the dog or even talk to your partner.....far more rewarding. If you would like to mine, you can have it for a tenner.
Works with Ring doorbell and lets you know about Amazon deliveries/returns. Plays Radio, Spotify, Amazon movies and BBC Iplayer via Silk browser. Good speaker quality. Works with home automation. Flash briefings for news are great as are the football scores. Facility to block the camera and mute mic is good as there are very serious privacy concerns.
Not so good
Seems like a work in progress, which needs much more development. Icons are very large. Screen resolution could be much higher even though it has been updated on this version. Why are Iplayer, Disney and Now TV not available in video home? The magnetic stand is seriously overpriced and must be bought separately.
Overall - Worth having but only when heavily discounted. I can see the potential for improvement as more services become available, but needs work.
