You may already know that Amazon makes three smart screen devices. But do you know which is the best Amazon Echo Show? With so many showy Echo devices, it can be hard to decide which one you should get. So we’re here to talk you through each option to help you decide which is suitable for your home. Although, right now, we recommend the Echo Show 8 (2nd Gen) above the others because of its perfectly accommodating size.

We’ll show you the best Alexa displays below

The best overall Echo Show in town

Reasons to buy


Sits in the Goldilocks zone of Echo Show devices


Physical cover/off switch for microphones and camera


Similar specs to larger Echo Show but cheaper


Great sound quality


Vastly improved camera that can keep you in frame

Reasons to avoid

No Dolby processing built-in

Display doesn’t rotate like Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen)

The Echo Show 8 (2nd Gen) sits right in the middle of the Echo Show line. It takes some of the best features from the high to low ends. For example, it’s in-between the smaller size of the Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) and the arguably unwieldy size of the Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen). It improves the smaller Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) sound quality with double speakers (two 2-inch speakers at 10W per channel vs. one 1.7-inch speaker at 4W per channel). Plus, it has the same 1280×800 display as the larger Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) for a higher pixel ratio per inch.
