homepod > amazon echo
everyone knows i’m a huge apple fan, but many don’t know i’m equally as huge an amazon fan. as an avid prime member, this was a tough choice.
siri -vs- alexa
well both have great sound quality & are excellent with voice commands. amazon was first to market so they have more 3rd party apps & devices for your home. echo is also much cheaper at $129 (versus $349 for homepod) ...it came down to my home ecosystem... iphones, ipads, apple tv, apple music & movies. so i knew i would primarily use the smart speaker for music. since all of my music has been on itunes/apple music dating back to the first ipod, i went with the homepod. i would rarely ask for alexa to reorder paper towels. if you have pandora, or other streaming services, echo may be a better choice since homepod doesn’t support. or if you’re strictly integrated with android devices & google play, i would suggest the google home smart speaker.
