Echo Dot 3rd Gen

If you don’t have your heart set on the latest model, you can find some brilliant savings on Amazon’s older devices like this third-generation Amazon Echo Dot. It still has all the features we’ve come to expect from Amazon’s devices, including hands-free calls, voice control of your music and the ability to control your lights, plugs and thermostat via the speaker.

Amazon Echo + Philips Hue bundle | £89.99

Echo Philips Hue deal

The Amazon Echo and Philips Hue bundle currently cost the same as buying the smart speaker on its own. It comes with a Philips Hue lightbulb (either screw or bayonet) that you can control through your Amazon Echo. It is a great deal if you’re looking to dip your toes in smart home technology and not sure where to start.

Which Amazon Echo should you buy?

Deciding on which Amazon Echo you should buy largely depends on what you’re primarily going to use it for and your budget.

The most popular smart speaker is the Amazon Echo Dot, which also happens to be the cheapest. With an RRP of £39.99, the Echo Dot is only a few months old and has a 1.6-inch front-firing speaker. It is a great option for those who are having their first foray into smart speakers or who mainly want to use it to listen to audiobooks, music or ask requests about the weather, news or traffic.

If you are more of a visual person, you will likely benefit from spending a little more on a smart display. The RRP for these devices start at £79.99 for the Echo Show 5 but can often be found for less. The benefit of having the touch screen is that you can make video calls and the usual voice calls on offer with the Echo smart speakers.

Ring doorbells are also compatible with Alexa devices, so you can both see who is at the door without leaving the kitchen – another feature not available with the standard smart speakers. 

What types of Echo are there?

There are now a lot of Alexa compatible devices out there, including everything from doorbells to plugs, but we’ve kept this list just to Amazon’s own smart speakers and displays. They come in a range of shapes, sizes and price ranges but will all have the same basic Alexa capabilities.

Echo Dot

The Echo Dot was redesigned last year and now comes in a new spherical shape. Features include hands-free calls and access to various ‘Alexa skills’ including Uber, Fitbit and Just Eat. It is also available with an LED clock face, which is a particularly handy feature if it’ll be living on your bedside table.
