Design and build
So firstly we will talk about its design and build quality. As you can clearly see the design of the Zeb smart bot in the above image. It looks very premium and attractive.
Comes with a built-in Alexa and a five-watt speaker. It has holes on all four sides for a better and clear sound quality. It also comes with a 360 degree IR blaster.
On the top of the speaker, we can see the media control buttons and a power on/off button. It also has two microphones on the top side for getting better input.
Build quality is very good feels very durable and sturdy. At last, we can say the build quality is very awesome and the design also looks very attractive. It has various things that make it easy to operate.
This is a very lightweight speaker. It only weighs around 400 grams which makes it easily portable.
Now we will talk about its sound quality. Firstly I want to tell you that it comes with a 5-watt speaker. So the sound volume is not that much loud. But it is enough for a small room.
There is a very minimal bass present in the speaker. But the sound quality is very good. The sound is crystal clear you can listen to anything in the speaker. Even you can also listen to speeches in the speaker without any problem.
But I want to tell you that the sound quality is not that much good on Bluetooth mode in comparison to wifi mode. I recommend you to use this speaker on wifi mode only.
There is a very high latency while using Bluetooth mode. There is a delay of 3 to 4 seconds in the sound while using Bluetooth mode. I hope you understand the issue.
Zebronics Zeb Smart Bot Features
