The Echo Dot was a total game-changer when it first launched, giving people access to Alexa for much less than what they would pay for a full size Echo speaker. Now, however, there are even cheaper options out there. Before you spend $50 on a new Echo Dot, you should definitely consider a Eufy Genie Wi-Fi Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa instead. It’s made by Anker so you know the quality is top-notch, and it only costs $19.99!
