What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • No screen: Without a screen, the Echo Flex is limited to music, shopping and Alexa skills that doesn’t include video or displays of any kind.
  • No Dolby technology: Without it, the smart speaker will use more data to produce the high-quality sound that you expect from an Amazon smart speaker.
  • No LED clock display: The Echo Flex doesn’t tell you any information unless you ask for it.

Bottom Line

A smart speaker, a night light, or a motion sensor, Amazon's Echo Flex gave us access to over 50,000 skills from Alexa for a low price of only $24.99. We had fun controlling the lights in our room using our voices alone, all from this speaker only inches wide.
