Amazon released the device last year and we gave it a score of 78. We admired the big, bright screen and picture frame design. We found the widgets (including those for headlines, weather, calendar, sticky notes, recipe suggestions, and shipment tracking) useful. However, it lacked camera and audio quality. Though the Echo Show 15 is designed to be wall-mounted, Amazon’s decision to sell desktop stands separately rather than including one by default is also disappointing.
Since this is an Amazon smart display, you can of course also use it to control compatible smart home devices. Echo Show 15 supports a variety of video and audio streaming services and can connect to compatible Echo speakers for richer sound. You can also use the display to view images from Amazon Photos or Facebook.
Meanwhile, family members can have their own profiles. You can use voice recognition and the Visual ID facial recognition system to access personalized content such as reminders, appointments and recently listened to music.
Elsewhere, the Echo Show 5 is also on sale. It’s currently available, which is $45 less than the standard price. As the name suggests, this is a model with a much smaller screen than the Echo Show 15 (5.5 inches compared to 15.6 inches), which might make it a good fit for a bedside table. To that end, it supports an Alexa Routine, which can gradually turn on connected smart lights and play music or messages to get you started in the day.
