Google Nest Mini 2 vs Amazon Echo Flex (2019)

Analysis:

The Google Nest Mini 2 is an exemplary product and one of the very best Chromecast Speakers that cost around $25.

The Amazon Echo Flex (2019), however, doesn't seem to have enough data available for us to be able to draw any meaningful conclusions.

The Google Nest Mini 2 managed to impress reviewers from many of the internet's most highly trusted sources, including Wirecutter (NYTimes), SoundGuys, Rtings, Tom's Guide, and CNET. It performed really well in their Chromecast Speaker roundups - it was named "Top Pick" by Wirecutter (NYTimes), "Best bang-for-your-buck" by SoundGuys, and "Runner Up for Best Bluetooth Speaker Under $50 For Voice Assistant - Alternative With Google Voice Assistant" by Rtings. That's high praise coming from sources that conduct in-depth hands-on testing.

Moving on to the Amazon Echo Flex (2019): it has done really well in a number of roundups done by sources that perform objective and reliable testing, including Android Central, Android Authority, The Independent, and iMore - it won the "Best Alexa speaker for transitional spaces" title from Android Central, "Ranked 1 out of 18" from Android Authority, and "Ranked 2 out of 19" from The Independent. That points towards it being a cut above most of its competitors.

Finally, we also compared their review scores to the rest of their competition - the Google Nest Mini 2 earned an average review score of 8.3 out of 10 points and the Amazon Echo Flex (2019) received an average of 7.8, compared to the 7.4 average of Chromecast Speakers in general.
