9 reasons you should buy an Amazon Echo over an Apple HomePod (AAPL, AMZN) from Ayman's blog

Amazon Echo

Amazon`s Echo has been the reigning champ of smart speakers for several years running. 

Thanks to a super-smart assistant in Alexa, an approachable price point — now 100 — and the power of Amazon`s massive ecommerce presence, the Echo has been a no-brainer for anyone in the market for a smart speaker. 

But now Apple has entered the fray with its 350 HomePod, and fans might be wondering: which is worth buying? 

While there are two major reasons to choose HomePod, the Echo still wins out. Here are nine reasons to buy the Amazon Echo instead of Apple`s HomePod:

1. The Echo costs less than a third of the price of HomePod.

With its second generation Echo, Amazon slashed the price by 80, bringing it down to 100 — less than one-third the price of the 350 HomePod. And right now, the Echo is on sale for 85.



2. There are six different color options for your Echo.

The first generation Echo only came in two colors — black and white, much like HomePod. 

But the second generation offers an option to switch things up. You can buy six different decorative shells for your Echo in a variety of finishes, like walnut and fabric. The shells cost 20-30 and are available for two-day shipping. 



3. The Echo is smaller and more lightweight.

The Echo is 5.9 inches tall, 3.5 inches wide, and clocks in at less than two pounds. HomePod isn`t much bigger — 6.8 inches by 5.6 inches — but it is a lot heftier at 5.5 pounds.
