Amazon’s products are always among the best deals during Black Friday and Cyber Monday – and this year is no different.
The Echo Dot 5th Gen – which is barely two months old – is down to half price, dropping from £54 to £26 (opens in new tab). That’s a saving of £28, or 51 per cent. To steal.
Amazon Echo Dot 5th gen Cyber Monday deal
The 5th Gen Echo Dot retains the same size and shape as its predecessor, but has a slightly modified design – it looks a bit more futuristic in our opinion. Amazon has tweaked the inside too, with twice the bass and half the distortion of the 4th gen variant. Impressive.
This improvement in sound quality comes from a redesigned audio architecture with a custom full-range driver and the highest-excursion speaker of an Echo Dot to date. Of course, we’ll need to test the new Echo Dot ourselves before we can tell you how well it performs.
Eero Wi-Fi support is now built in, so the Echo Dot can be used as a mesh network extender with Eero. But don’t worry if you have the older model, as the fourth generation Dots will be updated with the same Eero support. A new temperature sensor is also part of the package, alongside tap gestures.
A new Echo Dot with clock launched alongside the 5th generation Echo Dot – it has the same functionality but also displays the time, making it useful as a bedside table. The new model has a new dot matrix display that now lets you see the name of the song you’re listening to, along with the weather, calculations, calendar event times and more.
