Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro It works on the go
This speaker doesn't have to be plugged into a power outlet at all times to work, it only needs a Wi-Fi connection. You can take it along to a getaway with friends, for example. Though you should keep in mind that the battery life is 9 hours.
Pro Charging is convenient
You just need to place the Tap on the charging cradle that's plugged into a power outlet.
Pro It can perform a large variety of tasks
The Tap comes equipped with Alexa, Amazon's voice-controlled assistant; it can play your music, make notes, find some information online, get the weather forecast, and check your calendar among other things.
Con It's not entirely hands-free
To activate the Tap, you have to tap on it with your hand. This is a small task, but for many people, it can ruin the very purpose of having a smart speaker in the first place.
Con The sound quality is underwhelming for the price
The audio quality is average at best. It lacks the bass and volume that other speakers in the same price category have.
Con It requires you to charge it daily
Although having a cordless speaker is very convenient, the downside is that you will have to charge it regularly. And with 9-hour battery life, this means daily.
