Amazon Echo Show 5 $75.05 @ Jb Hi Fi
Does this have limited functionality when compared to the Show 8 or is it more or less the same, minus the form factor?
Only have an Echo 5 but from what I know it's the same feature set with bigger speakers, display and higher resolution. Apparently the Show 8 actually lacks the "Tap to Snooze Alarm" feature the Show 5 has.
same, but the speakers in my show 10 is absolutely amazing. well worth it to get a 10 imo. i have the 5, 8, and 10.
This is like the lenovo clock?
How is this compare to Lenovo clock?
Lenovo Clock has Google Assistant, this has Amazon Alexa
Same code works for Echo Show 8, bringing it down to $151.05. Probably still better with Amazon + cashbacks.
Does this integrate well with ring doorbell?
yes, it doesn't work with wyze :(
Would be same price at Officeworks if price matching the $79 (still listed as $99) in case that was easier
Can you surf web pages on the screen?
Yes, it has Firefox web browser.
Seems like everyone posting here hasn't seen any of the other Echo Show threads on ozb :P
Just a novice question here but can this be used as a smart hub? It seems like it hasnt got hub function, I want to control my digital front door lock with it.
If your digital front lock is compatible with Alexa, then Yes.
Its a zigbee model. But I need a hub for it to work. Are you saying this can be used as a control hub?
The hub is only available on Echo show, this can't be used as ZigBee hub.
@rvsure: Thanks rvsure!
Can you install Skype on this?
Do these spy for the NSA or CCP.
I prefer the CCP for my home.
Wish they come with stands!
I have a 1st gen echo spot. Is this worth the upgrade?
yes, i upgraded to an echo show 10, its the best. im getting this for the kitchen for the heck of it. its on sale, so why not. lol
