Google haven’t been as fast getting into position but that’s not such a bad thing in this case.

Amazon went on the first whistle and it’s paying off. They’re well established as the market leaders.

Looks Short and stylish, looks like some kind of fancy candle.

Intelligence The Home wins this one. AI is a strong suit of Googles, it’s what they do so it’s no surprise that this one is a clear win to Google. The Home can understand complex questions and is able to follow up whatever you were talking about previously with further questions, it’s as if you’re having a conversation with a real person. The Echo is certainly intelligent but it can’t stand up to Google’s mighty effort. Although the Echo tries it doesn’t seem to understand some of the more in-depth complicated questions that Home can. Although Echo can make shopping easier than Home can.
RRP £129.00 £149.99

It’s too close to call a winner here. They both put up a great fight, if I had to split hairs and pick one I’d go for the Amazon Echo but I’d be interested to see if this is still going to be so close in a years’ time when both devices are well established.
