Amazon Echo Show 5 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

A smaller, cheaper Alexa-powered smart display

Excellent price ; Powerful speakers for the size ; New dashboard and smart home controls

Some features really need a search option ; Needs multiple settings for proper night control

Basically a shrunken Echo Show, the new Echo Show 5 is far easier to place than its big brother, making it the ideal bedside companion or just for use where you don't have a lot of room. The new interface is largely a success and the smart home...

Amazon Echo Show 5 review: the perfect smart display for your bedside table

 

The Amazon Echo Show 5 is small, inexpensive, and packed with functionality

Alexa keeps getting better ; Easy smart home controls ; Decent audio performance

Screen isn't very big ; Limited video app support ; Thick display bezels

Amazon Echo Show 5 review

 

The Amazon Echo Show 5 smart display has arrived, bringing with it a shrunk-down version of the second-generation Echo Show , for those wanting a smaller and cheaper take on the increasingly common smart display. UPDATE: If the Echo Show 5 wasn't what...

Low, low price Integrated how-to videos Camera shutter

Low resolution No YouTube app Frustrating UI Makes Echo Spot redundant

The usefulness of Alexa, and integration with WikiHow, is enough to justify the low price of the Echo Show 5, even if the lack of some features grates on us. This isn’t quite the definitive smart display, but it is one we can imagine in a lot of...

Amazon Echo Show 5 review: The cheapest smart display

 

The Echo Show 5 delivers Alexa on screen at a ludicrously low price but it has its limitations

Great price ; Privacy shield on camera ; All the features of the Show 2 in a smaller package

So-so audio quality ; Disappointing microphone sensitivity

What it does do, however, is bring the price of smart display tech down to a far more reasonable level. At a price of £80, even with its limitations, the Echo Show 5 is a steal. Not quite a cast-iron five-star bargain, perhaps, but a very good value...

Amazon Echo Show 5 review: Not just a smart alarm clock

 

Amazon's entry-level Echo Show 5 is a great smart display with an aggressively low price. Place it on your bedside, but don't call it a 'smart alarm clock.'

Compact size fits anywhere ; Attractive design ; Versatile features ; Enhanced privacy controls ; Entry-level price

Sluggish smart home touchscreen control ; Alexa calling isn’t easy enough yet ; No Google Photos or YouTube

Amazon Echo Show 5 review: The most confusing product thus far in the Echo lineup

 

It's difficult to put a finger on the kind of buyer interested in this category of Echo Show. It is a jack of all trades but master of none.

Amazon and Google both have lower-cost smart displays. Here's how they stack up side-by-side.

Amazon Echo Show 5 Review

 

This budget smart display has a bit of an identity crisis.

The Echo Show 5 is a competent device. But Amazon needs to figure out what it is.

Amazon Echo Show 5 Review

 

Read the in depth Review of Amazon Echo Show 5 Internet of Things. Know detailed info about Amazon Echo Show 5 configuration, design and performance quality along with pros & cons, Digit rating, verdict based on user opinions/feedback.

Debossed button markings helpful in the dark ; Friendly lightweight form factor ; Physical shutter for camera

Display has limited viewing angle ; Not a Zigbee-enabled smart home hub ; Sports only two mics, making you shout

The Amazon Echo Show 5 is a cute, friendly bedside Alexa device for those who don't care for a bigger or better display, speaker, and camera. It's an ideal beginner's smart display.
