Clock is not as bad as what other people say but yeah it would be good to have a large clock display like the echo show 5 as an option.

Sound is good for its size. Prime video ok but its too small. The recipes not as extensive as Tasty app on iPhone. Dont bother with Youtube or browser, its frustrating to use.

Its mainly voice command so don’t expect much on the menu system. It also took a few tries to respond to touch before it played the last music played. Cannot recignise last Apple Music playlist played as it only shows the the last song played. But it does recognise the last Playlist if its an Amazon music playlist. Amazon music does not have a good playlist like Apple’s. It also stops randomly like after 3-5 songs then u have to press play again and it starts at the beginning. Thats a good reason for me to not continue Amazon Prime when it expires. However I like the Amazon Music Originals but theres not too many of them. Amazon Movies content not as good as Netflix.

Lyrics only from Amazon Music, not Apple Music.

Bluetooth via Apple music is ok.

Alexa app is not the best, its clunky and does not respond to touch from Home screen if selecting last music played. You have to navigate to Play icon :(

I mainly use it as a cooking timer and clock.

The games are ok but it gets boring after a while.

I gave it three stars becausenitbis not touch user intuitive as it prefer voice commands.

And that annoying “Try Alexa...” commands on the screen should be an option and not always there.

Bought this on sale so I’m not fussed otherwise I would have returned this if purchased at full price.
