The best smart displays can elevate your smart home by allowing you to see as well as hear the information voice assistants are offering, thanks to the built-in screen. However, they can be a pricey purchase so a good smart display deal is always welcome. 

Amazon has slashed 44% off the price of the Amazon Echo Show 5, reducing it to just $44.99 from $79.99 in the US and £44.99 from £79.99 in the UK. This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen in the US for this smart display –  beating the deals we saw on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. (Not in the US or the UK?

Amazon has also discounted the Echo Show 5 in the UK. Although, this isn’t the lowest price we’ve ever seen for the smart display, which comes with Alexa built-in - it dropped as low as £39.99 in February this year. That said, this is still a good offer and won’t last for long – so we suggest you snap it up immediately. 

This isn’t the only version of the Amazon Echo Show 5 that’s available. The Echo Show 5 (2nd generation) was released in June this year and is currently priced at $84.99 / £74.99 However, there are very few differences between the two models - the Echo Show 5 (2nd generation) has a 2 megapixel camera, which is double the resolution of the Echo Show 5 (2st generation), although unless you’re planning on using the device for a lot of video calls, this won’t be an issue. 

The Echo Show 5 (1st generation) also boasts a 3.5mm socket so you can plug in wired headphones for private listening, something the Echo Show 5 (2nd generation) doesn’t offer.
