1.0 out of 5 stars One major flaw
By Mark H. on June 20, 2018
This is an excellent smart device with one major flaw that makes it unbearable. There’s no way to deactivate “Things To Try”, which means you’re forced to watch on-screen tutorials of basic Alexa tips each time the Spot wakes up. It’s not possible to deactivate this “feature.”

1.0 out of 5 stars I give up. Amazon has ruined a decent device.
By Sam D. on September 25, 2018
Amazon has officially ruined this device. I have recommended this device, in conjunction with the Amazon Cloud Cam for months. The best reason to own this device is to use it as a baby monitor. With recent changes to the display, it is useless. It now has an on-screen display 100% of the time, without the ability to remove it. You used to have to tap to bring up these buttons so you could use 100% of the display, now you can't hide them. Amazon: take a note;. When you have 3 inches of screen real estate. It's all precious. Don't put up onscreen display that you can't hide. Stay away from this device until they fix this problem.

1.0 out of 5 stars UPDATE. Zero stars. Slider interfacle for light controls is horrible. Things to try” Please go away.
By BB on June 27, 2018
This thing just plain sucks. A new update brought ANOTHER annoying feature other than “things to try”. I just uploaded an image of a new interface when you ask Alexa to dim the lights, bedroom off, kitehen on’s an image of a lamp with a slide toggle that you can touch to increase or decrease the brightness. WHY?! When I’m asking Alexa to dim the bedroom to 50% I don’t need to touch the screen. When I say “bedroom off” the lights go off but the Alexa is still bright screen with this hideous interface on the screen for 10 seconds until it goes away then it auto adjusts. THIS IS RIDICILOUS. I don’t want this device anymore. It’s so painful and unbearable to use.

Dealbreaker is the THINGS TO TRY. Please remove this. I don’t want to see this. I own several echo items. I know what to try. At least give an option to toggle this on or off. Everytime I ask for something like “turn the lights off” it then starts the slides with things to try. I don’t want this. I know I can set to show things to try only once after a request but this seems so silly that I cannot turn it off completely.

Please update this feature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alexa developers - listen to the nearsighted of America!!!!
By Art Tart on December 29, 2017
So far, so much love, with a tiny suggestion - hopefully the Amazon developers read these reviews.

Easy peesy set up - I was able to get it up and running and customized in less than 20 minutes - score!!!
Paired my bluetooth Thonet and Vander speakers (that also live with my bedroom TV) flawlessly. Figured out how to set recurring and different alarms for weekdays and weekends (after you set the 'single alarm' go to the alexa app under alarms and reminders - you have far more control through the app to easily change that single alarm into a recurring alarm with lots of options). Got a photo uploaded to make a custom clock face (used my photo cloud storage at Prime). Played some Prime music. Watched a little CNN. What isn't to love???


It can't be that hard to give us options on font size on the 'personalized' clock. Hey, Amazon developers, not all of us have perfect eyesight, especially at night when the eyeglasses end up on the night stand next to the Spot. Listen to the nearsighted of America, heck, the World, give us a bigger font!!!!!

As soon as Amazon addresses this 'you gotta be kidding' fix, I will be changing that 4 star review to a 5!!!

They listened!!!
There is now a much bigger font, very similar to what I photoshopped in my ‘wish’ photo, and it can turn red at night. A++ and I changed my rating to five stars. I really like this little spot, we have been buying more Alexa compatible items and our ‘smart home’ is really coming together.

And for all of my ‘commentors’ who suggested just asking Alexa what time it is, I would rather not wake up my guy in the middle of the night.
