Bringing smart-speakers (or voice assistant devices) into our homes has undoubtedly made our lives easier, enabling us to easily ask for an answer to a question, to turning on the lights, set reminders or timers, make lists, link up with your smartphone to make calls, and many more things.

It's no wonder then that global smart-speaker shipments are growing extremely fast, but which are the best devices to buy? Different rooms often require different device types - screen or voice only? large or small? ..and there are many now to choose from.
