What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Plug-in: Unfortunately, there’s no wireless version of the Amazon Echo available as of writing.
  • Reflective screen: This device isn’t good for a room with a lot of natural lights or bright lights, as there’s a lot of glare.
  • Lag: I was disappointed at the amount of lag I had when navigating through menus, apps, and programs.

Bottom Line

The Echo Show has a ton of amazing features. Unfortunately, it’s no longer available, but if you like what you see, better smart displays are available from Amazon now in the form of the Echo Show 5, Echo Show 8, Echo Show 10, and Echo Show 15. The closest to the original Echo Show in terms of size is the Echo Show 10.
