    "This is a terrible gift idea. I received one as a gift, and I felt the person who gave it to me must hate me. First, you have to go through gyrations to use the Google app store, instead of Amazon's shallow substitute. Then, unless you pay a premium, you're treated to ads on your lock screen, that are just annoying, and can't be removed! Additionally, the battery life on this is just crap."

    "I was hoping to really make an impact on my family this holiday season with a great gift under $50, but I don't think the August MS515B is the way to do it. It's a relatively unknown speaker with mediocre reviews. I don't think this will be turning heads at any Christmas parties. Unfortunately, this is not a great solution."
