Reviewers from digitaltrends have found:
The Lenovo Smart Clock Essential is a fitting addition to any bedside table. Its use of LEDs instead of a touchscreen display makes it less of a distraction. Interaction with the Essential is achieved through voice actions and commands via Google Assistant. It doesn't like competing against other Google Assistant speakers or displays in the same room.
Pros
  • Simple, clean design
  • Easy to set an alarm
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • No touchscreen display
  • Doesn’t work with other smart speakers

The Lenovo Smart Clock Essential provides full access to Google Assistant. You can ask the voice assistant for general information like weather and sports scores, to play music, and even to make phone calls. Bass is weak to nonexistent, as heard through our low-end test track, The Knife's “Silent Shout” The Google Assistant voice comes through loud and clear, but music isn't particularly impressive.
Pros
  • Good sound quality
  • Supports Google Assistant
  • Built-in night-light
Cons
  • Lacks bass
  • No smart display

Pros
  • Supports Bluetooth 5.0, Zigbee, and Wi-Fi
  • Supports voice commands

Reviewers from tomsguide have found:
Lenovo Smart Clock Essential costs $49.99, which is $30 less than the touchscreen Lenovo Smart Clock. It can answer questions, adjust the clock settings and control your music hands-free. I didn't expect it to be the best-sounding speaker, but I was surprised by how well it keeps up with other devices in its price range.
Pros
  • Easy-to-use design
  • Good sound quality
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • Doesn’t sound as good as Echo Dot with Clock
