Reviewed

The flagship Amazon Echo (3rd Gen) smart speaker with Alexa voice control is the high-profile successor to the exceptionally successful second-generation model. Amazon says that it's improved the 'sound architecture' even further, with a larger tweeter and bigger woofer for enhanced treble and bass. But has it actually had the desired effect? Does it continue to revolutionise the home, or are the vast number of rival Alexa and Google Assistant speakers starting to leave it exposed? Our expert lab tests reveal all.
