    "I never thought I'd have any use for smart speakers, but that changed when I tried the Amazon Echo Dot. Not only is it small enough to fit just about anywhere, it boasts a robust set of features that I find myself using every day. I can play music, make phone calls, get directions, send messages, hear the news and even control smart features in my home with this robust little device. If you're like me, you may not even realize how much convenient the Amazon Dot Echo is until you try it for yourself. "

    "While I typically trust the Apple Brand, the HomePod is simply outclassed and out-priced for the smart speaker market. Because I can the same features at a much lower price, I will not be purchasing or endorsing the HomePod. "

    "Amazon tap is a great choice for smart speakers. It is portable, easy to use, has wi-fi connection and the price is not too high. The quality is really good as you could expect from an Amazon product. This thing is a cylinder that’s only 6” tall and 2-1/2” in diameter. And it’s loaded with dynamic sound and a boatload of voice-controlled features. Amazon Tap, allows you play music from various sources such as Amazon Prime Music, Pandora, IHeartRadio, Spotify, and others. You can ask it about the news, the weather, or the result of a game you were not able to watch. It will also tell you the status of its battery! Out of 7,810 uses rating it on Amazon, 62% gives it a 5 star raiting!"

    "While I wouldn't classify this as a smart speaker, this is a pretty nifty multi-tool. As with most multi-tools, each function isn't going to be the highest of its class, so to speak, but it's good for people who like devices that serve more than one function. "

    "The Lenovo Home Assistant Pack Speaker is a solid smart speaker. Its design is basic but attractive. I like its simplicity. The functions are fairly standard for a smart speaker, and it comes at a reasonable price. It can be integrated with other devices, but requires that you have a Lenovo Tab 4. Overall, I like it, but it wouldn't be my top choice."
