Hay thought I would give my two cents on the mini.
I like the price of the google mini at 30 dollars, give or
take a few cents woe!
I like the smallness of the device smaller than my hand. It
sounds good for that size speaker.
It will not nock your socks off but, it is good for easy
It also responds to your voice at several feet away.
And it will do everything that the home does.
However, I find it seems to respond more quickly than my
home does, not sure why, could just be a fluke.
it can operate off a usb so you can connect to an usb hub
and not have to plug it in to an ac outlet; looks great on your night
They do not have tactile indicators on the sides to let you
know where to turn the volume up or down; may sound stuipid but, I would have
like some tactile arrows to indicate that is where you have to touch to raise
and lower the volume. Why not just have the speaker turn to go up or
down. I have several speakers that operat in this fashion and that is how the
echo is too if I remember correctly.
Why does it not come with a battery pack so one can take it
with them . Although, you can connect it to a external battery if one wanted
to take it with them.
I think the google mini is a good price it uses the google
assistant and you can save on space in various colors too. It is even
smaller than your iPhone or ipod 4gen. But if your looking to impress the guys
with a jamm fest wait for the max but, it will cost you way more at the bank.
I choose the google mini as it was a good space saver on my
night stand and it was more portable than the home. It was also less expensive
is a characteristic, not a handicap!" Dr. Kenneth Jernigan
