Google Home Hub hands-on


Hummingbird Spirit
Hummingbird Spirit

This is the biggest failure product launch ever! I would love to meet the loser Google Engineers that designed this total failure device! The most basic feature...a bedside clock...doesn't work because the brilliant engineers at Google designed the device to dim in the dark...unfortunately they didn't test their own device...it dims so much that you cannot see the clock in the dark...you cannot replace your bedside clock with this POS device! I would love to meet the engineers that designed this POS device! Don't waste your money!

Saw it yesterday for the first time... It’s way too small. Google need to bring out a 10 inch model.

THey should add a camera, but make it a rotating one. So when you are not using it, you can flip it around in case it gets hacked

The no camera was a cop out to save on BOM costs. Google also uses a cheaper slower SoC than Lenovo, JBL and other smart displays

Nest hello and the ability answer and not just view is a plus. Wish it had the drop in function like show than it would be a perfect replacement. Since it is google, i bet they will have youtube support also, the missing ingredient in the other competitor.
