If you wanted to buy an Echo Show 8 but missed out on Amazon’s Prime Day sale, don’t despair. Right now, you can grab the latest second-generation model for $85, a massive 35% discount ($45 off), and it’s just $10 off the record low price. Meanwhile, the Echo Show 5 is still on sale for $40, a savings of 53% but Amazon’s Echo Show 8 – $85 The second-gen Show 8 with its 8-inch 1,280 x 800 touchscreen , a minimalist design and great sound quality earned an Engadget score of 87. It differs from the first-generation device in several ways, notably an updated 13-megapixel camera that digitally pans and zooms to keep you in frame when you’re video chatting on apps like Zoom. This is an especially nice feature if you frequently use your smart display as a stationary video chat device. It also doubles as a photo frame, and Amazon’s updated home screen lets you view multiple items at once, like weather and sports. For example, if you need something smaller on your nightstand, the Show 5 might be a better choice. It includes a sunrise alarm feature that slowly brightens the display to gently wake you up on dark winter mornings. It also has all the usual features found on Amazon Echo devices, including Alexa voice control and Ring integration. Best of all, it’s only $40, which is $45 off the usual $85.
