Engadget Review

Amazon’s latest Echo Show is a huge upgrade over the original. It has a more modern design, fantastic audio quality, comes with two built-in browsers and features step-by-step recipes; some even have video tutorials. It now has more robust entertainment options, that include NBC, Hulu, as well as the latter’s live TV service. Still, the mediocre display is disappointing, and those entrenched in Google’s ecosystem might find it lacking. Amazon fans, however, will find plenty to like here, and the affordable price point makes it a compelling proposition.
