The Echo Show 8 is still the smart display to beat


The first Echo Show 8 arrived in 2019 as the middle child between the 10-inch Echo Show and the Echo Show 5. It's long been my favorite of the bunch. It has more screen real estate than the $90 Echo Show 5, which is too small to do much with other than...

Better, more responsive touchscreen Widgets! Excellent sound for a smart display Faster responses Now a smart home hub (added Zigbee and Thread)

More expensive Still too much Amazon bloatware Bezel is still super thick Limited video options No Zoom support

If you’re in the Amazon ecosystem, the Echo Show 8 is a great smart display. It’s just the right size, it sounds good, and it’s faster than previous versions. Its Visual ID feature makes it useful as a communal device, as it can adapt the content based...

Amazon Echo Show 8 (2023) review: More than just a pretty screen


The new smart speaker from Amazon comes with some seriously improved audio that is definitely worth the upgrade

Excellent sound quality ; Responsive virtual assistant ; Comprehensive, adaptive interface ; Good camera placement (finally)

Big bezels ; A bit expensive ; No motion features

If you’re in the market for a smart display with excellent sound quality, the Echo Show 8 is absolutely where you should start your search. While the $150 price tag is definitely on the higher end of the spectrum for smart speakers, you’re getting more...

Amazon Echo Show 8 (3rd Gen) review: A better Alexa smart display


The Amazon Echo Show 8 (3rd Gen) offers a number of improvements including a centered camera for video calls and a more premium feeling edge-to-edge glass display.

The Echo Show 8 (3rd Gen) is a worthy successor to its predecessor and a great choice for those who want an Alexa-powered smart display that isn’t too big or too little.

Amazon Echo Show 8 (3rd Gen) Review


Building on the previous model, the Amazon Echo Show 8 (3rd Gen) adds Zigbee, Thread and Matter support as well as clever personalisation.

Faster processor ; Improved audio ; Smart personalisation via Adaptive Content ; Zigbee, Thread and Matter support

Same resolution as previous version ; Some options fiddly to access

The all-new Echo Show 8 (3 rd Gen) ramps up the smart home skills with the inclusion of Matter, Thread and Zigbee, and also has performance and audio boosts over its predecessor. The display is still a bit bland and there are some UI tweaks needed to...

Amazon Echo Show 8 (3rd gen) review: the near-perfect smart display for most households


The Amazon Echo Show 8 (3rd gen) is better than ever, coming in strong with much-needed upgrades from the previous generation. That includes better audio, faster performance, and added support for Matter, Thread and Zigbee. The only big thing that...

Excellent audio Fast performance Added Thread and Zigbee support Sharp, bright and responsive touch display Adaptive Content, Visual ID personalization, and other features are nifty

Slightly more expensive than predecessor Display bezels are still thick Same camera, same display resolution

If the Amazon Echo Show 8 (3rd gen) isn’t proof-positive that smart speakers are on their way out, then I don’t know what is. Smart displays not only allow you to connect and voice-control your smart home devices but also provide many other...
