Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen, 2021) review: this smart display could spell the end of alarm clocks

 

The Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen, 2021) is perfect for your bedside table

Alexa is always learning ; Great for smart home control ; Loads of smart features

No 3.5mm audio input ; Small screen ; Not that different to the 1st generation

This tiny smart display is incredibly easy to use, especially if you already own other Alexa devices. Its 5.5inch screen is slightly too small to use in a kitchen, but for a bedroom or small office, the Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen, 2021) is perfect.

Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd generation) review

 

The Echo Show 5 (2nd generation) is the new version of Amazon's smallest smart display, arriving almost two years after the Amazon Echo Show 5 (2019). While it may look identical to its predecessor, there have been some incremental updates to the...

Affordable Can double as a home security camera Lets you see and hear Alexa

No YouTube app Audio lacks bass Low-resolution video

The Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd generation) is an affordable smart display that brings the benefits of seeing as well as hearing Alexa to those on a budget. It’s simple to use, it’s got an improved camera, and it comes in a new blue finish. While it’s a...

Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen, 2021) review: A minor upgrade for Amazon’s smallest smart screen

 

Not much of an upgrade, but the Echo Show 5 is still a good-value smart screen

Better camera quality ; Small and unobtrusive ; Good value

Not the best sound quality ; No 3.5mm audio output

None of this means that the Echo Show 5 is a poor product. As a smart alarm clock for the bedroom, or a compact radio for your home office, it works brilliantly, and it’s unobtrusive enough to fit anywhere else around the house that might be missing an...

Echo Show 5 (2021) 2nd gen review

 

The 2nd-gen Echo Show 5 is almost exactly like Amazon's previous model, with the exception of a new colour and the ability to use it as a security camera.

Can view camera remotely ; New colour ; Affordable

Unimpressive sound ; Sluggish performance ; No aux output

The 2021 updates to Amazon's smallest smart display are minimal, but it's still good value if you want one for bedside alarm, clock, and radio duties.

Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen, 2021 Release) Review

 

Along with a new Echo Show 8, Amazon has updated it smaller Echo Show 5 smart display. It's effectively the same smart clock radio as the previous model, with no significant changes to the screen or speaker, for the same $84.99. The camera sees a minor...

Affordable Small size for versatile placement Useful Alexa features including smart home control and home monitoring

No significant upgrades from previous version 3.5mm audio output has been removed

The second-generation Amazon Echo Show 5 is nearly identical to the previous version, and remains a capable smart display for virtually anywhere in your home, particularly your nightstand.

Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd gen) review: The smallest Echo display gets a modest upgrade

 

Now equipped with a sharper camera and a proximity sensor, the new Echo Show 5 is better than ever, but the cheaper original remains an enticing alternative.

Attractive, compact design ; Improved camera and new proximity sensor ; Alexa is tops at smart home control ; Excels as an alarm clock

Annoying setup process ; 3.5mm audio jack is gone ; Sluggish touchscreen controls ; Can't pair portrait photos side-by-side like Google displays can

We’ve already established that there’s not much point in upgrading to the second-gen Echo Show 5 if you already have the first-gen version. But what if you’re a first-time buyer—is the new Echo Show 5 worth your money?

Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) review: A good bedside smart display

 

The Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) is as cute, compact and capable as its popular predecessor. But it's arrived in a more saturated smart clock market than the version that came out two years ago. Now, the $84.99 Echo Show 5 is rivaled by the Google Nest...

Cute, compact design Sounds decent for its size Kids Edition has good privacy and warranty options

No 3.5-mm audio jack Limited camera quality

The Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) isn’t much of an upgrade compared to the original, but it’s still a compact and capable bedside smart display with a built-in camera and Alexa.
