Default Google Home vs Amazon Echo

Google just launched Google Home. A nice small device costing $130. It can do a lot of things like maintaining your schedule, your to do lists, play music, provide information, connect to the IOT devices.

Amazon Echo. Costs $180 and do almost all the above tasks while getting updated over the cloud. It can also control a couple of devices like your LIFX bulb.

Anyone done extensive research on these and can tell me which one is better.

I would say wait it out. IoT security is pretty bad. The last thing you want is someone taking over your home. Let the security bugs get ironed out and protocols standardized. I expect pricing to come down after that.

As of today, Echo. Echo Dot to be specific for price-to-value propositions. In a year or so Google Home.
