Ecobee4 is somehow distinguishable from the Ecobee3. It is 3.5 inches Full color(320*480). Its face is a rounded black square face with a smart-phone sized touchscreen in the middle. The noticeable difference is a small blue LED bar along the top, which lights up when Alexa is activated. While the unit does not feel or look as premium as the Nest’s elegant stainless steel dial, the Ecobee4 is minimalist and unobtrusive.
A small microphone icon in the lower right lets you activate Alexa manually. The current temperature will display you prominently.
