Engadget Review

The Amazon Echo Show 5 is a smaller, sleeker Alexa smart display with a few more features that make it a better smart clock. It has a sunrise alarm, a tap-to-snooze function and an ambient light sensor. There’s also a physical camera shutter to help alleviate privacy concerns. It’s a little cumbersome to customize the display with photos and the presence of that camera might still bother some people, but with a decent screen and great sound quality, the Amazon Echo Show 5 is still a compelling tiny smart display for fans of Alexa.
