With the recent announcement of the Amazon Echo Pop, we wanted to see how it compares to the Echo Dot (5th Gen).
Amazon just released the all-new Echo Pop, which sports a semi-sphere form factor and the standard Alexa compatibility we've all come to expect from Echo products.
The Echo Pop is currently available for pre-order on Amazon's website, with the product officially launching towards the end of May.
But with the addition of a brand new Echo product, we wanted to go back and see how it compares to the popular Echo Dot. Keep reading to find out all the differences between these products so you know which Echo smart speaker is right for you.
Echo Pop comes with bolder color options
As the name suggests, the Amazon Echo Pop really pops in terms of colorways. It can be found in Charcoal, Glacier White, Lavender Bloom and Midnight Teal. The last two options look very dynamic and ideal for anyone who wants a splash of color in their living room or bedroom.
The Echo Dot is available in three colorways, including Charcoal, Glacier White, and Deep Sea Blue. These options are more understated and would suit those who want their smart home devices to blend into the background of their home.
Echo Dot is more expensive
The Echo Dot was released in 2022 and sports a price tag of £54,99/$49,99. However, since it's been on the market for almost a year, the price fluctuates often, which means you'll be able to get it at a discount depending on when you visit Amazon's website.
The Echo Pop launched with a price tag of £44,99/$39,99. That makes it £10/$10 cheaper than the Echo Dot and it's likely to be treated to the same discount trend as its older sibling over its lifetime. Overall, although the Echo Pop is cheaper, you won't go broke with either of these smart speakers.
Echo Pop has a bigger speaker inside
As we haven't tested the Echo Pop, we can't comment on the audio quality yet. We know it comes with a 1,95-inch front-firing speaker inside, with Amazon claiming it can deliver full-range sound great for almost any room in your home.
The Echo Dot comes with a pilo1,73 inch te. In our review, we found it sounded much better than its 4th Gen processor with significantly more bass and noise. For the price, we felt the audio provided was smooth and easy to listen to.
Echo Dot includes a temperature sensor
One of the improvements made to the 5th Gen Echo Dot was the inclusion of a built-in temperature sensor. This can be used to create Alexa routines that run automatically based on temperature, like turning on heaters when it's cold or turning on a smart fan when it's too hot.
The Echo Pop doesn't come with a temperature sensor, which will limit its smarts by comparison. While users can still control their smart products using the Echo Pop, this will have to be done manually or through more specific routines, as it won't have any temperature gauges in your home.
