Amazon Echo Show 8 review: The middle child

 

At a significantly cheaper price than the larger Echo Show, the Show 8 has most of its appealing features.

Good option for medium-sized rooms ; Significant sound improvement over Show 5 ; Ideal kitchen device ; Great with Ring doorbell

No Dolby sound enhancement ; Price can vary greatly

At a significantly cheaper price than the larger Echo Show, the Show 8 has most of its appealing features and is also a significant step up from Echo Show 5. We think it's the best Alexa screen device yet.

Amazon Echo Show 8 review

 

Pre-Xmas smart home bargain

Good price ; Big sound ; Works as a Bluetooth speaker

Display style can be distracting ; No Netflix, YouTube only via a workaround ; A bit too vibration-happy

The Amazon Alexa home invasion continues apace with another capable smart display hard to complain about at the price

Amazon Echo Show 8

 

If you want a smart display from Amazon, the Echo Show 8 is the Goldilocks model: not too expensive, not too small, with just right sound. Here's our review

Echo Show 8 (1st gen, 2019) review: A solid compromise

 

The Echo Show 8 is the best bet for people wanting an Alexa-controlled smart screen, but the Nest Hub is better overall

Good sound and image quality for the price ; Well sized for a smart screen ; Stylish design

The screen isn’t used that much ; Videos are hard to navigate ; Prime Video is the only option

It may sound like I’m down on the Echo Show 8, but I’m actually not. If you’re into the Amazon ecosystem then it’s a reasonable smart speaker with a screen attached and a huge library of shows to make doing the washing up slightly less tedious.

Amazon Echo Show 8 review: The best Amazon smart display, period

 

Making small improvements over time isn't flashy, but Amazon's approach made one of the best smart displays on the market.

Amazon Echo Show 8 review: Third time’s the charm

 

Sitting in between Amazon's two smart displays, the Echo Show 8 is looking to achieve that perfect balance of features, performance, and price.

“Not too big, but not too small, Amazon has an absolute gem with the Echo Show 8.”

Amazon's incremental improvements still stand out, one year later.

Amazon Echo Show 8

 

Amazon's Echo Show 8 smart display offers a nearly perfect balance of price, performance, and size.

Affordable. Powerful sound for the size. Sharp screen.

Bass and high-frequency response could be stronger.

Bottom Line: Amazon's Echo Show 8 smart display offers a nearly perfect balance of price, performance, and size.

Amazon Echo Show 8 vs. Google Nest Hub

 

Amazon is directly challenging Google's best smart display with a similarly sized, similarly priced model. Here's how the two devices stack up.

Amazon Echo Show 8 review

 

An Echo in different sizes to fit all budgets

Ongoing promotional price is a steal ; Handy Bluetooth speaker ; Screen-enhanced capabilities big boon for a connected home setup

Muffled sound since it comes from the back ; Forever-on display is distracting ; Prime Video and Voot limit content options

Whether it’s your first, third or only Echo device, once you explore Alexa’s skills in their full glory, there’s no turning back.
