I'm way late I know, but Echo is more user friendly. That's not to say that SIRI or Cortana are bad, because they are great. However, Echo is always on and listening so you don't have to push a button. The Downside is that it sometimes responds when you aren't talking to it. Echo also uses a special microphone system to reduce echos and filter out extraneous noise. A single mic system is just too noisy to always listen from a distance. You need to be right at the mic for you voice to overpower other noises and give a clean enough signal for voice recognition to work. This is essentially why you have to press a button on your phone for Siri or Cortana to work.
