Comparison with old echo.
Reviewed in India on 25 July 2019
Well here are the pros and cons comparing to the old echo.
It has video capabilities. So of course it adds a lot of more abilities compared to the old echo. Touch screen is nice. So is the voice recognition. Much more sensitive compared to the older echo.
On the other side voice quality is no where comparable with the old echo. Misses the base and the elegance in the voice. Feels like all artists is having fever and closed nose. The unit as such is facing a little upwards. Could have been better if angle of camera could be adjusted, as in the default setup it's very difficult to get images of the room as camera is also tilted upwards along with the unit. So if you want to keep an eye on the room or kids whatever it may be you have to adjust and balance the placement of the whole unit with something. More over you have to find something low enough to allow a good view. The screen gets heated up like the normal TV screens after some time.
Frankly at this price it could have been better equipped to give a sound quality atleast equivalent to old echo.
