HomePod mini review: The HomePod mini went up for purchase last week and the first orders would arrive to customers on November 16. The first reviews of the HomePod mini have now been published prior to this availability, and the sound quality is praised almost universally.
Across the board, the consensus among the early reviews seems to be that, particularly for people who are already deep in the Apple ecosystem, the HomePod mini is an excellent speaker for its price point. Devices such as the Amazon Echo also have the value of cross-platform support for non-Apple households. However, the HomePod mini is more accessible than the $349 (now $299) HomePod original.
