    The sound is dramatically better. And Bose is worse than Amazon/google speakers
    The fact is when you have Google and Amazon selling great-quality smart home speakers which are (arguably) more versatile, are of the same quality and have superior AI assistants built-in for around $100, it makes people ask what they have to gain for paying an extra $250 for a fatter Amazon Echo with an Apple logo and Siri.

    The only thing the HomePod has better than the Echo and Google Home is slightly better audio quality...but then if you’re and audiophile you could easily get a smart speaker from a company like Bose with Alexa built in for around the same price but better audio quality.

    Again, Apple faces the same dilemma as it did with the XS. Great quality products which work very well, but are undercut by the competition.

    I don’t fancy paying the money, and I don’t want a potentially hackable microphone in my house.
