HomePod Mini vs. Nest Mini vs. Echo Dot: A battle of entry-level smart speakers

The entry-level smart speakers from Apple, Amazon and Google each make for a good smart home starting point. We pit them head to head to head to find out which one is the best for your household.

We compare sound quality, smart home capabilities, general knowledge, extras and value. The hardware is important, but you’re also getting a smart home platform and a voice-enabled digital assistant. So Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant battle it out in the video as well.
