The Echo Show 5 Is Almost Never This Cheap
Smart displays are growing in popularity. These versatile devices offer a range of features including streaming video and music, checking the weather, setting alarms and displaying photos. If you've been looking into a smart display, look no further because Amazon's Black Friday deals includes its Second-gen Echo Show 5 for just £35 -- it lowest price ever.
Alexa devices offer compatibility with a whole host of products, and the second-gen Echo Show 5 is no different.
It was released in 2021 and features a 5.5-inch screen. That size may be a little small for using to stream long movies or pull up a recipe while you're in the kitchen, but it is a great addition to an end table or nightstand. It's a huge upgrade over traditional alarm clocks, as you can check the weather and news, view your calendar and set reminders, use as it a smart picture frame and much more.
Because this device sports a 2-megapixel camera, you can make video calls, but the quality isn't great, so it's worth springing on a device with a better camera, if that's your goal. If you do need a bigger screen, check out other Echo Show devices, which range in sizes all the way up to the Echo Show 15. But as far as accessing Alexa and streaming music, this is a great option.
At £40, that's a solid deal.
