Offers nothing over my phone?
Very good price for this. I got one on sale for £50 a couple of months ago. Generally speaking it’s good for what it is - a Google Assistant powered alarm clock designed to replace a traditional bedroom clock radio. It’s not without its flaws though.

On a plus point, setting alarms is easy. You can set up routines for alarms and other commands, such as as a bedtime routine that turns off Hive lights downstairs and plays music. It sits nicely on a bedside table. Sound quality is quite good although not as good as say a Sonos One. Voice command works well - standard Google Assistant stuff.

Various limitations include: unless dimmed to its lowest setting the screen can be too bright at night. Unfortunately that then means you can’t see it in daylight. Radio integration isn’t great - essentially hooks in to a free version of TuneIn Radio, but there’s no option to log in using a premium TuneIn account. There’s no obvious way to set the alarm to play a shuffled playlist so you’ll always hear the same song first. There’s also no obvious way to set an alarm remotely, even using the Google Assistant or Home apps.

All in all somehow I like it though!
Shame it can't play videos
The bezels on these things make them look so dated

Has Google home stopped being able to make calls? I couldn't get it to work the last few times I tried.
This or a google home? Obviously google homes are more money I know that.

Does it play YouTube with out streaming from your phone?
What is the sound like on these? I have an Alexa in the bedroom but feel this would be more use as its also a clock.

Not to sound rude, but this is a 4" screen. And what you've explained can be done on the Google home app already.

My phone has a bigger screen than this device. I can control more than what this device provides. For example, I can play videos on other streaming services. I can play from more music sources. I just can't see the point in this product.

Not rude at all! Absolutely logical. Personally though I wanted a dedicated device to replace a 30 year old Sony Dream Machine that was finally giving up the ghost. I like having a clock on the bedside table that can be programmed with individual alarms for me and mrsfrieqs. I suppose a bit like saying ‘why have an echo dot when a phone can do exactly the same’. It’s really a matter of pure convenience and simplicity. Plus I go through phases of not wanting the phone in the bedroom (I don’t have the self discipline to avoid checking email, FPL price changes etc last thing at night ). I definitely don’t need it to play videos - it’s just a bedroom clock, albeit a fairly smart one.

Some people prefer dedicated devices and its often a lot more convenient to speak to google through a product like this than pull out your phone; sometimes I leave my phone in another room and this is a lot easier than going to find that first. Obviously it has a big clock on it, again better than pulling out a phone when you want to glance at the time. Its also faster at a tonne of things vs a phone when you factor in taking your phone out, unlocking it, opening an app, typing in what you want. I would never use my phone for music on loudspeaker, the sound isn't good enough and I want to use my phone for other things without disturbing other people listening to the radio/music/kids watching youtube etc. It's also brilliant for the 600 times a year I lose my phone around the house and I ask google home to find it.

Regarding the screen brightness, you need to check your settings as mine varies the brightness according to the amount of light in the room, but switches to the lowest setting at night.

most phones, you'd need to unlock it to do voice recognition tasks whereas this is always-on. also, the interface is vastly simplified and can provide e.g. by-the-bedside control over bedroom/home smart lighting from a pull-down screen, rather than going through the rigmarole of unlocking the phone, opening the app etc. ultimately, though, this is a convenience thing for £40 that's permanently plugged into the bedroom wall rather than a full-blown smartphone at several times that price that may or may not be in that particular room at that particular time. it's basically a better bedroom alarm clock rather than a rubbish smartphone. i already have a home mini in there, so it'd be a minor upgrade to that for me, and i find that useful enough in itself to make me think that being able to touch-control lighting silently instead of speaking to it and waking up my wife at night by speaking to it would be useful in itself...

Yep - I’ve tried that setting but it doesn’t seem to work for me. It won’t go to the lowest setting at night. Surely user error though! Do I adjust that using Google Home or on the device itself??

One thing I have found is that there are far too many settings in different places, between the device and the app! I have mine set to automatic brightness (swipe up from the bottom, tap the brightness icon then tap it again), then in the Display Settings I've got the mono clock face at night turned on, and the Darker brightness setting set.

Not sure if it makes any difference but I also have Night mode turned on via the Google Home app, there are some sliders within that for LED brightness and maximum volume although I'm not sure the brightness one will have any effect. I have mine set to lowest in any case!

Hopefully that sorts it for you.

Thanks for the tips. I’ll take a look. With a few minor tweaks it would be an epic product. I kind of wish there was a dedicated app for it vs the generic Google app. I’d still like to know how to set the alarm remotely!

Yeah, it not being able to import alarms from the phone is annoying. The Google Home app even shows you what alarms are set but doesn't let you do anything with them.

Yes I know that is already clear.

It's the "Plus" I was asking for clarification about. As it could be interpreted that it means a smart home device AND an additional audio product.

If it said OR instead of PLUS I would not need to ask.
how is the sound on these?

Great for an alarm clock, not as good as a Sonos One or similar. Slightly better than say an Amazon Echo dot.
Can this play Google play music or do you need to cast to it?
BrRrRrRrR very cold deal. Its like a phone but bigger and does like 1 percent of what a phone can do, and uses up a plug socket.
Who would buy this? Maybe if your dumb
