Amazon Echo Show 5
A small screen, but an even smaller price
Speaker size: 1.65 x 4W | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Dimensions: 14.8 x 8.6 x 7.3cm | Weight: 410g | Line out: 3.5mm audio or Bluetooth | Built-in smart home hub: No
This new member of the Echo Show family has a smaller five-inch screen than the original two Show models, and it's a lot cheaper too – in fact it's even cheaper than the Echo Spot which has a comparatively tiny screen. If you can fit this on your bedside table, its louder speaker and bigger screen make the Show 5 the better buy in our books.
