Amazon Echo Show

 

Amazon Echo Show review: adding a screen definitely improves the Alexa AI experience, although the smaller and cheaper Echo Spot is easier to accommodate.

Useful screen ; Video calling works well ; More intuitive than other Echo devices ; Best-sounding Echo so far

Expensive ; Not the best-looking thing

In many ways, the best Amazon Echo experience.

Amazon Echo Show review: Alexa steps into a touchscreen future

 

The Echo Show is really the pinnacle of the Echo experience: once you've seen it, you won't want to do back to just having a speaker. Alexa calling is

Responsive touchscreen ; Bright display ; Louder and better speakers than Echo ; Fully-fledged Alexa experience ; Video calls and Drop In mode

Low resolution ; Not a truly high-end speaker ; No app store or deep interface ; Few touch-enabled skills

Amazon has turned its Alexa voice-control assistant into a wider platform. And the Echo Show, which is essentially an Echo with a touchscreen, expands what you can do with Alexa and how useful the service is.

Amazon Echo Show review

 

Alexa takes on a new, but not fully convincing, form

Effective smart home hub ; Alexa is still a helpful ally ; There's potential to tap

Needs a lot more visual apps ; Underwhelming speakers ; Clunky design

The Echo Show has potential, but it's mostly unrealised so far

Amazon Echo Show (2017) review

 

There's a new Echo Show in town, so how does the original version now stack up?

Awesome voice recognition ; Visually rich touchscreen ; Competent smart home hub

Speaker still sounds shallow ; Video calling is limited

The Echo Show is more of a fun, ancillary device than a necessity, like the Echo or the Dot. It adds value by combining devices you already have and ones you could buy at a lower price elsewhere – just look at the Amazon Echo Dot, for example. But all...

Amazon Echo Show review

 

Editor's note (October 26, 2017): Since introducing the Show in June 2017, Amazon has evolved its lineup of Echo smart speakers , refreshing some older models and continuing to expand Alexa's skills, support new third-party integrations and release...

The Echo Show offers everything you love about Alexa, complete with new video and touchscreen controls. It shines best as a dedicated, hands-free video calling command center.

The uninspired design feels dated. At launch, the touchscreen visuals don't do enough to bring Alexa to life, or make her much easier to use -- though that could change with the arrival of new screen-specific Alexa skills.

Amazon's touchscreen Alexa device shows potential for people interested in video chatting with friends and family members, but it needs a little more development before we'd recommend it.

The display provides an entirely new way to interact with Alexa, but is the Echo Show worth £199? Here's our Amazon Echo Show review.

Amazon Echo Show review: The Echo Show 2 is on the way

 

Amazon's uglified Echo Show is actually rather good, but is soon to be replaced by the Echo Show 2

Video calling works well ; Easier to get to grips with than other Echo speakers ; Good sound quality

Pricey ; Not the most attractive thing

Remember: the Echo Show does all the stuff a regular Echo can do but its touchscreen adds just enough visual flair and extra information to make the whole experience that bit more accessible and pleasurable. It’s Amazon’s best-sounding and most...

Amazon Echo Show review: A glimpse at the future past predictions never quite got right

 

The most expensive Echo in Amazon's range adds video calling to its extensive list of capabilities

Despite those (small) complaints, I do rather like the Amazon Echo Show. It combines all the flexibility and voice-driven brilliance of the regular Echo speakers with a dash of visual flair and it shows that some crazy old ideas don’t need to be...

Amazon Echo Show review

  (Rating Hidden)

The next revolution in wireless speakers, the Amazon Echo Show is an incredibly versatile device. It's designed to be an all-in-one hub for your home, combining playing music with taking calls, showing video clips on its large screen, and controlling...

Amazon Echo Show will transform your relationship with Alexa, in a good way

 

Tell and Show.

Gives Alexa a Face ; Not a bad entertainment platform ; Highly extensible ; Excellent hearing

Call audio quality sub-par ; Needs to make even greater use of the display ; Screen is too reflective

The Echo Show gives a 'face' to the now-familiar Alexa digital assistant, but Amazon and its partners will need to do a lot more to fully untap its benefits.
