For few years Amazon has decided to put their line up model series in many types of gadget. They also try to get so many consumers with their bluetooth speakers line up. You probably have heard one of their products Amazon Echo, but that’s not the one that we are going to review here. The Amazon Tap is appearing to be a simpler version of its brother. You will miss some features and its probably acceptable since the prize is cheaper. The biggest thing that I love from their audio gadget is the extra feature on the voice enabled. It doesn’t appear only as a portable audio, but also as an intelligent machine like a smartphone. But is it worth to buy? How does it compare with its brother and what about the performance? Well we are going to find it soon. To make it easier for you to decide, here the full review about this audio gadget. So we hope you enjoy it.
Design And Extra Functionality
There is not much any change from its previous Bluetooth speaker. The product really looks like a mother and child where Tap is coming with taller design. it is really bad that we cannot find selection of color because its only available on black color. The only distinction that I found here is the Amazon logo now is placed bit above. The Echo is coming with cylindrical design at 3.27 inches wide and 9.27 inches tall while the Tap is measure around 2.6 x 2.6 x 6.3 inches. So there is no real different between these two things in term of basic design.
You would get the same functionality like we found on the Amazon Echo. The voiced enabled feature is the shiny thing that you find here. The setup is pretty simple where you just need to tap the butter button, connect it with the internet, then tap the button and it would ask what kind of music that you want to play. You could download the extra app if it’s necessary for you or you can even stream of your music with Spotify, Pandora, Tunein, Prime Music and many others supported music streaming. This is the easiest way to play of your favorite music. You don’t need to always near your phone because the product is ready to command with our voice. Many people prefer this product because this amazing feature.
If you are not satisfy enough with only listening music, then you also able to read the news, order the pizza, and even asking for weather report. All of possibilities are available here. there are thousands of command skills that are ready to try. You only need to connect with the WIFI or your mobile hotspot. The offline mode is also available if you only need to stream of your favorite music from of your smartphone or other Bluetooth enabled device.

Performance and Value
There is not much anything that I could say about the sound performance. They really focus on the functionality rather than the sound producing. I didn’t say the performance is bad and it’s still acceptable for me. The dual speakers are actually pretty bad ass. It featuring the Dolby audio powered and the bass power is pretty good. It is efficiency and you will be surprised on how much the power does it takes.
For me the biggest value beside of its great functionality is the battery life. The battery is capable of running nonstop up to 9 hours with serious usage. You would notice if the battery life is low by its voice sound. You can charge it by putting it on the charging cradle and it is pretty much simple. For me with the different price with its brother is one thing that makes it really worth to try. The price is really speaking here, but the performance is still good and acceptable.
