Lenovo Smart Clock Essential Review Rundown
Lenovo Smart Clock Essential uses of LEDs instead of a touchscreen display, a choice that makes it less of a distraction. For responses from Google Assistant, its 3-watt speaker is sufficient enough to discern, but it lacks the punchiness of other audio-centric smart speakers.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo Smart Clock Essential is the latest product aimed at giving consumers even more choice on what should win over that prime real estate by their bedsides. Its $50 sticker price seems like it's a home run, but it's going to need to distinguish itself to make it a better buy than the competition. The Lenovo Smart Display 7 presents itself as the best solution with a full-featured smart display.
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo Smart Clock Essential is a smart speaker that has a clock on it. At $49.99, it costs much less than the Smart Clock or any other smart display. It works well as a way to access Google Assistant with your voice, but it suffers from the same disappointing sound quality. The Amazon Echo Dot With Clock offers far better sound in a similar package and price.
Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo Smart Clock Essential has a single 1-inch, 3-Watt speaker. It can answer questions, adjust the clock settings and control your music hands-free. Next to both Amazon and Google's $50 speakers, the Lenovo Smart Essential sounded most like the first-generation Google Home Mini.
