  • Amazing Smart Home Device!!
    Reviewed by get2pallav - August 11, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This device is amazing, fun and very easy to install. The size is perfect for any room, the screen is sharp and clear.I get to watch my shows and movies, make zoom calls, talk to family and friends on video, follow recipe, listen to music. The sound quality is pretty nice for music coming from such a small speaker, it's surprising really.The shape of the Echo Show makes it very solid and steady on flat surfaces. You can type the touch screen without having it move or tip over. Use Amazon Photos to turn your home screen into a digital frame and exhibit your memories. Your favorite images will appear amazing in any light thanks to the adaptive color. The physical privacy camera shutter is a helpful feature that I wish more products had.This handy device also has amazing possibilities when used with the Smartplug.

  • The Best Smart Home Device
    Reviewed by Ashu - August 3, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am very excited to use the Amazon Echo - Show (2nd Generation). It has great features like - Alexa can show you, even more, thanks to an 8-inch HD touchscreen, adaptive color, and stereo speakers that bring entertainment to life. With a 13 MP camera that uses auto-framing to keep you centered, you can make video calls. Stay in the frame - Make video calls with a new camera that automatically frames and centers. Simply ask Alexa to make a phone call to one of your contacts. Make your life at home easier - Examine your calendars and to-do lists. Set timers, update lists, and get news and traffic updates with your voice. Manage your smart home - Use the built-in camera to check in on your home while you're away. Using the interactive display, your voice, or your motion, you may control compatible devices including cameras, lighting, and more. Enjoy HD and stereo TV shows and movies with Prime Video, Netflix, and other services. Alternatively, you can ask Alexa to play Amazon Music, Apple Music, or Spotify. Use Amazon Photos to turn your home screen into a digital frame and exhibit your memories. Your favorite images will appear amazing in any light thanks to the adaptive color. Amazon is not in the business of selling your personal information to outsiders, thus this feature was created to preserve your privacy. Multiple layers of privacy protections, such as a mic/camera off button and a built-in camera shutter, are included. I also got a smart plug and a whole installation design module as well.

  • Great Product!
    Reviewed by pkakkat - August 8, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I must say in the last few days I have gotten addicted to my Alexa Show. I can watch who is at the door when someone rings my smart doorbell. I have also integrated my security cam with it. I received a smart plug with it too from Amazon which integrates seamlessly with the Alexa. I am able to control my lights based on sunset and voice command. The Alexa Show also plays videos and music. The speakers are decent. I Made a video call with it and my friend said that my image was very crisp so the camera resolution is also good. It notifies me of Amazon package deliveries, I can review the product and also easily reorder. I also use it for reminders. I highly recommend Amazon Echo Show!

  • Well Built Smart Home Device!
    Reviewed by AllieMM - August 8, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Amazon Echo Show 8 is a good smart home device in terms of hardware and decent in terms of software. It is a solid improvement from its Amazon predecessors. I was impressed by the packaging and it was obviously well thought out. There was minimal plastic, no foam and mostly recyclable cardboard. The handles to pull out the cardboard containing the Echo Show were clever, simple and so useful. Hardware: I really wanted a smart home device with a screen because sometimes visuals are useful when asking Alexa questions or just to see the time. The screen is sharp and clear. The physical privacy camera shutter was a surprising and helpful feature that I wish more products had (much better than using a piece of tape or a sticker over the lens as I usually do). The shape of the Echo Show makes it very solid and steady on flat surfaces. You can type the touch screen without having it move or tip over. The size of the screen is perfect for the kitchen as a central smart home command center. The speakers were well balanced and clear. Aside from the mismatched wire, the black version of this device is modern, clean and nice looking. Software: The Alexa/Echo software is smart but not exactly genius. There are a lot of great functions and it is a great way to get answers hands free. I found a lot of instances where Alexa couldn’t answer my question (even simple ones) or pull up mediocre results/sources. I liked that Alexa was able to translate into Cantonese and was pleasantly surprised since it is not a commonly included language. There is an issue that it takes a min for images to appear on the video chat after connecting (pixelated picture until it clears up). I am sure this will be updated on the next software update. I found set up to be pretty easy and quick after the app was downloaded on my phone. I was able to connect it to my existing smart lightning system and to add on additional smart plugs. I do find it frustrating that some smart products will not work with the Echo and some are only compatible with the Amazon Alexa system even though they could easily add the functionality into the software. This however is an industry wide issue and not specific to this device. Overall, if you are looking for an Amazon Alexa smart home device with a screen, I think the Echo Show 8 (Second Generation) is a good choice.
