4.0 out of 5 stars Good addition to the Show range
By Dr. Paul Ell on 2 July 2019
I’ve got both of the other iterations of the Echo Show and particularly like the second edition 10 inch screen version which I assume will continue to be available. The new 5.5 inch Show fits very well in a small space though - see the attached image of the Show 2 and the Show 5 side by side. Although Amazon call this version the Show 5, with previous versions being the Show and Show 2, that’s because of the screen size - there are not two missing versions of the Echo Show out there!

In terms of where best to use this size of Show, I’m using mine on my desk but it would be equally well situated on a bedside table thanks to its small footprint.

Installation was very straightforward and is done just using the Show itself - you don’t need the Amazon Alex app on a phone or tablet. My Show needed to install a software update which took around 15 minutes in total. Since then there’s been flawless operation.

In terms of functionality the new Show is pretty similar to the other versions such as the Echo Show 2 so you have access to the full range of Alex skills and features, all with the added benefit of a screen so you can watch the BBC news and Amazon Prime videos (although the screen size is a bit small). A key difference for anyone concerned about privacy is that the camera has a physical lens cover. There’s also a further button to take the Show offline. Other features include an audio out port.

The screen, although only 5.5 inches, works well as a desktop or bedside device. It’s dramatically better than the round screen on the Echo Spot - and it’s a lot cheaper! I’d also suggest that at the listed price of £79 compared to the list price of the latest Echo Dot of £49, the Show is also better value than the Dot which of course is just a small smart speaker with no screen.

Downsides, well the sound for my ear has too much bass although it is possible to adjust the bass and treble. The sound seems slightly distorted but it’s not a massive issue. It’s also worth noting that the Echo does not include a smart home hub which the Echo Plus does. If you’ve a lot of smart home devices, and don’t have a current hub, this will restrict your control of your smart home although a number of devices will work with any Alexa-equipped device. Some reviewers have commented that the Show’s software is a beta version. That’s not the case - it runs the same software as other Show models, software that’s been around and developed over the last two to three years. Don’t expect some form of massive and miracle-making software update soon. It’s not going to happen.

Overall a very good product. Four stars, one lost for the slightly muffled sound quality but I’m being picky here.

By Miss pretty pink on 6 July 2019
I love my Echo Show 5 so much, I use it to watch my prime video and also as a sound system playing my music. I did link my Ring video call to it as well. And I can just say Alexa show me front door and it will just show me live. I will definitely recommend this device it’s brilliant
