Lenovo Smart Clock vs. Lenovo Smart Clock Essential: How do the differences stack up?
In most situations, a Google Assistant powered speaker with a display is too large for a bedside table. With options ranging from 7 inches, like the Lenovo Smart Display 7 up to the 10-inch behemoth in Google’s Nest Hub Max, you’re talking a lot of real estate to be taken up by your alarm clock — not to mention more money too.
