For the next 48 hours you can score 62% off the smaller Amazon Echo Show 8 - bringing down the price to just $64.99 - and 35% off the larger Amazon Echo Show (Gen. 2) that’s available this week for $149.99.
The primary difference between the two smart displays is their screen size, but the larger Amazon Echo Show 10.1 is also a slightly more powerful speaker and it can act as a Zigbee hub to discover new devices. Basically, if you plan on using an Echo Show as a smart home hub, you’ll want to buy the larger size.
That said, both the larger Echo Show 10.1 and the Echo Show 8 have Alexa built-in and work as video calling devices, plus they can stream shows and read off new recipes while you’re in the kitchen. Both smart displays are fairly well-priced today, but the Echo Show 8’s discount price is truly noteworthy.
