Google Home Mini review: Small on sound, big on value

The Home Mini is the cheapest way of buying into the Assistant yet for those looking to buy into Google’s smart home ecosystem. While it's a good value for the price, its poor sound performance makes it a better desk buddy than a standalone speaker.

Google Home Mini review: Hotter than a Amazon Dot

If you’re looking for a small, affordable home assistant, then the Google Home Mini is a great option. The small speaker is surprisingly loud and full sounding for its size, is able to understand voice commands from across the room, and integrates extremely well with other Google-made devices.

The Home Mini is best suited for those that live deep in Google’s ecosystem (and don’t have their work accounts tied to G Suite).

Google Home Mini review: The Echo Dot rival now comes with hands-free calling

The Google Home Mini would be a nailed-on five-star product if Google had only spent a couple of quid putting in a 3.5mm headphone jack in every unit.
