Echo deals: which Amazon Echo is right for you?

So, you may be wondering which of these Echo deals is right for you. Fear not, we'll quickly summarise the main differences between these excellent smart devices so you're not going in blind here.

Starting off our Echo deals is a 40% saving on the Echo Dot 3. This small but mighty smart speaker is a great addition to any kitchen, bedroom, or hallway. At under £30, this one's perfect if you're simply looking for the bare smart assistant essentials - for example, asking Alexa what the weather forecast is, how's the traffic, or to put on your favorite album. With a seriously low entry cost, there's really not much to dislike here, as it's a great unobtrusive way to get into smart assistants without making the cash commitment or having a distracting display.

Our other Echo deals on the Echo Show devices are better for people who are going to make more comprehensive use of the displays. While still having a fairly low entry of entry with the Echo Show 5, these super versatile smart displays can organise your calendar, video call your relatives, or even read out the odd recipe or two. This makes them really versatile devices, and perfect for the kitchen or living room. So, if you're going to really make use of that display, the Echo Show 5 is a great place to start.

The second-generation Echo Show is the priciest of our three Echo deals this week, but we still think it's a great saving overall. In our recent review, we really liked the new features - especially the upgraded display. The audio is also much improved over the last generation, courtesy of some newly upgraded speakers - so if you're more of an audiophile, it's probably worth the extra spend.
