    Bad Design...sketchy Alexa Connection

    This is a big disappointment - and I was so hopeful. * Alexa connection drops and shuts down unexpectedly * Power connection is in the bottom of the unit (you need to stand it upside down to charge while listening...awkward engineering) * Alexa is slow to respond (comparing to Echo) . You often have to repeat the question * No Speakerphone capability (WHAT??) - Assumed this was table stakes End of the day - if you want Alexa in a bluetooth speaker - buy an Echo. If you want a waterproof speaker / speaker phone that connects to others - Go JBL. Frustrated with this purchase - serious buyers remorse!!

    I bought this UE megablast because I've read the reviews and they give 4.5 stars. We'll in my opinion 2 starts is what this product deserves. Though is very loud bass was lacking of presence. Secondly on day 3 the speaker started to making weird sounds like and old one. Finally I have to return it.

    Sound is great and I have no problems with that. My only complaint is that it disconnects from my Bluetooth device (Amazon Echo and Apple Ipad frequently. I get it reconnected with my ipad fairly easily. However, with my Echo device, I have to work with it for about 15 minutes to get it to connect and pair. Also, many times, while I am using it, it just shuts down and turns itself off.

    I would say this speaker Is just Okay. Its a little overpriced, i would only get it if its on sale. For just about the same price or a little more you can get a way better sounding speaker. Honestly i've actually heard better speakers for less money. The only reason i bought this was because of the Alexa feature. Which isn't that great ether. Its glitchy often or just doesn't work.

    I gave this spaeker as an early farher's day gift to my husband,beside the public opinion about Alexa feature,idecided to buy it.The sound was great,but when you playing music ,and try to give a command to Alexa ,It won't heard you,and the speaker does not have a button to lower the music ,so is impossible to play music and give a command at he same time.

    This speaker doesn't float like it suggests. It has a great sound, and get's pretty loud, but the voice activation is terrible. We were looking for a replacement for the Amazon tap we had...this is not it. It was unresponsive when using the Alexa voice commands.
