Echo (2nd Generation) - Charcoal Fabric [Review]

Compare to the older echo, the new Amazon Echo 2nd Generation has a speaker that is one level higher. In turns of its look, the previous one is like a tall glass of water bottle, whereas the new one looks like a beer can. As for this 2nd generation, Amazon offers 6 changeable outer shells for you to choose from. Personally, I use the black one as I find it blends in with my room well.

There have been reviews out there that say that the 2nd generation has a quieter sound; however, I find it better than the 1st generation, and I had no problem with the 1st gen. either.
