    Brighter than normal

    I feel like i got a standard lifx bulb because honestly it to me is about the same brightness as the standard Lifx Mini white 800L. The onyl real way to tell the difference is to have them right next to each other and even then its not that noticeable. This 650L is perfect for a desk lamp and at full brightness it works perfectly fine too. The only thing i will say is that if you are mixing lifx bulbs make sure you adjust the brightness individually otherwise this bulb might be darker than the others. Oh and lastly, for anyone with a techy background. This bulb consumes between 0 and 0.3w while off, and about 10.3w on. I will say however the voltage in my home is significantly higher than it should be, at 137v so that might be a reason for the slightly higher power draw, but honestly under normal use i leave the lights at about 40% brightness anyway, so in all actuality its only consuming about 4watts of power. (also fun fact, due to how LEDs work, up to about 70% is when it exceeds 5watts for me, reaching 10.5 at maximum brightness.) 1%: 0.5w 15%: 0.7w 30%: 1.1w 45%: 2.2w 60%: 3.5w 75%: 5.5w <--Best ideal brightness Level 85%: 7w 95%: 8.8w 100%: 10.3w Hope this helps!

    It works, But

    Its works, But it will lose connection and its a pain to get it to reconnect it again. I had to do this 3 times in a weeks time and it took about a half hours to do. I did everything possible trouble shooting they tell you do do over and over. It will reconnect but it will take a bit of time to do it. If you are willing to deal with it losing connection at times and taking the time to reconnect it then good. I have kept it and will use it until it no longer works, it is better than the other for connectivity and installing time no need for a HUB so it beat all other out in my opinion. 3 stars only because it loses connection and also because it illuminate warm white light not a white blue light from like other LED wish it was that color instead of the warm. But I would buy this again only because it connects easy.

    This bulb is supposed to be 650 Lumens but honestly it seems like its more around the 800 lumen level. I only say this because when i compare it to my regular lyfx bulbs it has the same output when fully bright (or, they could just be old and wearing down too) However when you lower the brightness level you then notice a massive difference in brightness, especially around the 50% mark where this bulb is significantly more dim, though thats a good thing. i rarely keep my lights fully lit anyway, and for the most part i like my room darker. Either way this bulb does exactly what its supposed to do, and has no bells or whistles to it other than a timer. It just sucks that the timer fails to operate if the lightbulb disconnects from the internet. That seems completely dumb to me, when you have competitor products able to operate their timers when there is a network outage or issue, but not this one.

    They are very easy to set up, can use with AppleHomekit and Siri! There is no hub for these just basically "plug and play" Can use Geofencing so the light will come on when you arrive and go off (if you want) when you leave. The color on these is just varying degrees of white, I bought this after having many of the color changing ones from LifX, I have over a dozen of the color changing ones and wanted to save some money on ones that I just wanted to be white. The only negative about these to me, is it doesn't go to more of a warm, candlelight type of white. Limited white range compared to the color version that has many many ranges of white. From now on I will continue to buy the color ones.

    Great Morning Alarm & Always Impresses Guests

    This smart bulb is perfect for someone who isn't a morning person. I've set alarms on my Amazon Alexa dot to trigger this light to turn on at a predetermined time in the morning before work. If you are the type of person that presses snooze over and over, this is a great way to add a foolproof way to wake up in the morning. This light also proves useful at night when you are very tired, and don't feel like getting out of bed to shut off the lights. It always turns heads when I have guests over and I say "Alexa turn on lights"-- not many people are aware that this is something that is possible--so it always impresses and surprises guests.

    Very easy to add to Apple HomeKit. Can control through HomePod or with iPhone or iPad. Has a nice dimmable feature and can set timers, turn on when you get home, turn off when you leave etc. no need for a hub like most other lights on the market. make sure you check the lumens and the size of the room so it fits your needs. It doesn’t change colors like the other LIFX bulbs, but it is a great basic smart bulb to get started to make your house a smart home.

    Before a semi-big trip (6hours away) I bought this light just in case it got so dark for my dogs when the sitter was not there. I wasn’t on planing on keeping it because I didn’t think it would work but it did. I was able to turn on and dim the light from 6 hours away! I was impressed and not it has a permanent spot on my living room lamp. P.s. if people don’t know you have it it’s so much fun to turn it on and scare them!

    This LIFX mini is great for bedroom lamp as it does not get too bright. At $20, it is one of the most affordable smart light that you can find. Like all of the LIFX lights, this one do not require a separate hub to work and connects directly to your home WiFi network. They also work with all personal assistant. I use mine with Siri and setting up with HomeKit is very simple through the LIFX app.

    The reason for the 4 stars, is that I use these for my living room lamps and I wish they were a little brighter. I should have chosen the brighter bulbs. But this works great with Alexa! After using the Alexa skill for LIFX bulbs. It works great. Love the app on my smart phone too. If you are out of town and want to turn on your lights. You can use the app from anywhere to turn on the great lights!

    Very Yellow

    Compared to all of the other LED lights I have purchased, including smart bulbs, these seem to be designed to mimic the old incandescent bulbs - very yellow. I don't care for the look. I found an upstairs hallway light to put them in at the top of the stairs, so it won't be in my face every day...but buyer beware. If you want the bright white LED look, these are not it.

    I bought 2 of these and have had nothing but problems with them staying connected and I have to constantly turn the light switch off and back on to gt them to reconnect. Also, if you have on of these, i pray you never have to change routers or isp's because it is impossible to get it to reset and connect to the new network.

    I bought after my Fire Cube TV arrived so it could do more than what I wanted it to do on my Tv, so far it works great when my Alexa having a hard time of hearing my commends I'm glad that I can use either Cortana or Google to turn on or off my light. Side note make sure it says white mini if you want the cheap one, the day and night one looks the same and cost more.

    I researched into many different bulbs but found this LIFX bulb that fit my needs to the “T”. You don’t need a hub to control it..it’s app based as well as Alexa, Google Home controlled. The convenience of it allows me to schedule it to turn on and off at anytime of the day is a big bonus. I really enjoy it..I definitely will buy more of these.

    I owned 4 LifxA19 lights with color changing, but the high entry price was stopping me from investing more for the rest of the house. These are perfect and affordable and actually go on sale often. I rarely use the color changing features of the other lights, so these minis are perfect for foyer and end table lamps .

    I have bought two of these light bulbs. They install in about five minutes. Just screw in the bulb, turn it on and scan the code for HomeKit. They are very reliable, work with wi-fi, no hub required for local use. They are dimmable and fully controllable with Siri and/or Home app. LIFX also has app, but not required for use.

    Purchased the Google Mini along with these bulbs together. Was easily able to set up the bulb in the desired fixture immediately after setting up the Google Mini Home Smart Speaker. It was a quick setup, worked on the first try. Will purchase more of this product for additional fixtures in the same home. EASY.

    Easy to set up. No hub required. Didn't need or want color, so the mini white was very affordable. I can tell my phone through google assistant to dim or brighten the light - same for turning it on or off. This is useful when I'm not sitting next to the light. It's also nice to turn a light on before I get home.

    I have these lights in almost every room. I have them set up on a schedule to turn on automatically when the sunsets and at other times I use my iPhone or Amazon Alexa to turn them on and off. There's no extra hub, so just download the app and plug them in. I'm so happy I may never need to buy lightbulbs again!

    I use both apple and Google products. The apple homekit works great at turning the light off and on but sometimes the Google home will not always recognize the device or it's connection with the light. Sometimes have to disconnect and reconnect. Even have issues with the lifx app and it's correlation with Google home

    I’m going to get to the point. The light brightness is ok...not great. My biggest complaint is you have to download LIFX app and create an account and link it up to google home and then it doesn’t work ever. So yea maybe mine was a dud, but I use it as a regular light now.
