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 Echo Show 8 review: A happy medium

 

Better than the Show 5 and cheaper than the Show 10, this smart display is just right

Great audio with plenty of bass ; Vibrant screen ; Better performance than Echo Show 5

No 3.5mm audio output ; Content suggestions are rarely relevant ; No access to Disney+ or HBO Max

Yes. Alexa is a known quantity at this point, and if it's your preferred digital assistant, you'll like the Echo Show 8. It's a powerful little speaker with a vibrant screen and responsive performance — a set of qualities that ticks just about every...

Amazon Echo Show 8 review: The best Alexa best smart display yet

 

The Amazon Echo Show is a capable and great-sounding Alexa smart home display at an affordable price.

Amazon is always looking for ways to smother homes with Alexa, yet the Show 8 doesn’t feel as niche or as entitled as other attempts at invasion. It turns Alexa into an entertainment station that’s easy on counter space.

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

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.
