Simplifying the smart home

from Tom's Guide

Get the Echo Plus if you're looking for a basic smart-home hub with Alexa. However, power users will be better off with the Samsung SmartThings and a separate Alexa device.

The better Alexa experience

from Pocket-lint

With the second-gen Echo and the Echo Plus both being cheaper than the original Echo, Amazon is making the Echo universe more appealing to your wallet. The fact that you get more from the Plus than you did from the original Echo, for less money, is difficult to argue with, so we're happy to recommend the Echo Plus.

The smartest speaker around

from The Indian Express

Should you buy the Amazon Echo? Yes, if you have been looking for a smart assistant in your house. It does bring in an element of convenience into the house and is fun to have around, not just for the jokes. I would just suggest that you pick the right Echo model as per your need.

Absolute quickest way to make your home smarter

Crams more sound into the old design

from iMore

If you do want to get into the smart home thing, spend the extra $50 for the Echo Plus. It'll likely make things easier for you down the road when it comes to connected accessories.

Makes it very easy to get smart gadgets up and running in your home

from The Verge

It’s a little too simple to recommend, and if you’re interested in starting out with a smart home system, you’re better off buying the less expensive second-generation Echo and a dedicated smart home hub, which will give you all of the same voice control with lots of room to expand in the future.

Alexa has never sounded so good

from Alphr

The Amazon Echo Plus is worth buying for the improved sound quality alone. It’s vastly better than the original, and although it does lag a little behind the best Bluetooth speakers at this price, it's more than adequate as a kitchen or study speaker.

Sounds better, but it’s not a huge step forward

from Engadget

The Echo Plus is a minor upgrade over the original Echo, with slightly better sound. But its much-touted smart hub feature is pretty limited, and it's not a significant improvement overall for existing Echo owners.

SlashGear

Alexa is as capable as ever

from SlashGear

Amazon’s argument for the Echo Plus is that setting up the smart home can be time-consuming and needlessly complex, a tangle of hubs and interfaces just to get each thing talking to the other. That’s not untrue, though there remain benefits from doing it that way. The Echo Plus supports the basics via Alexa voice control, but anybody wanting more granular control will find the app woefully slim.
