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.

“Amazon’s Echo Show 5 is so much more than a smart alarm clock.”

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: Show And Tell


Amazon and Google have both realized that smart home hubs are better off with a display attached to them. The Echo Show 5, which was first introduced in India a few months earlier, is an affordable Echo device with a display (even cheaper than the...

Smart Home Dashboard ; Audio quality ; Appealing design ; Built-in camera shutter for privacy ; Great price

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...

Is the Amazon Echo Show 5 worth buying? Find iout what we thought when we put it to the test

Low, low price Integrated how-to videos Camera shutter

Low resolution No YouTube app Frustrating UI

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...

The Amazon Echo Show 5 is small, packed with functionality, and incredibly cheap right now

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 Echo Show 5 review


Does shrinking the camera-packing Show make it a more tempting proposition?

Sub-£100 price tag ; Plays video ; Surprisingly loud ; Works brilliantly as an alarm clock ; Visual element improves many Alexa skills

Resolution isn’t great ; Won’t do your music library justice ; Alexa can be temperamental

Aa great alarm clock and a feature-packed smart display that’s already a bargain

Amazon Echo Show 5 vs Google Nest Hub


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

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

In many ways, the Echo Show 5 isn’t anything particularly special, then. It sounds okay, but its microphone array isn’t great and it doesn’t move the smart display paradigm on significantly over the Echo Show 2. It’s essentially the same device, just...
