(Pocket-lint) - Finding the best deal on an Amazon Echo device is paramount for those who want to save a bit of cash.
Thankfully, Amazon offers a veritable tsunami of Alexa speakers, meaning there's plenty of choice at pretty much every price range. Almost all of them receive occasional discounts, too, which is why we've created this hub of the best Amazon Echo deals.
Below, we'll be providing dynamic widgets that show the latest and lowest live prices available online - and not just from Amazon itself.
Where to find the best Amazon Echo deals
Amazon Echo (4th generation)
- Dimensions: 144 x 144 x 133mm, 970g
- Audio: 3.0-inch woofer and 2x 0.8-inch tweeter
Amazon's latest Echo design is a ball, not a cylinder, which was a bit of a surprising change in direction. It also has support for dual-band Wi-Fi and the Zigbee smart home standard, too, while retaining the audio prowess from the previous version. It's a superb pick for mid-sized rooms.
Amazon Echo Dot (4th generation)
- Dimensions: 100 x 100 x 89mm, 328g
- Audio: 1.6-inch speaker
Sharing the same design as Echo above, the latest Dot has dropped the puck shape from previous generations. The audio specs are still the same as in the previous Dot, though, so you'll get roughly the same performance. It's an excellent pick for a bedside table, desk or small room.
Amazon Echo Dot (3rd generation)
- Dimensions: 43 x 99 x 99mm, 300g
- Audio: Built-in speaker, 3.5mm connection
The previous-gen Echo Dot is a small 'puck' shape with a much punchier speaker than the devices that came before it. There's a 3.5mm audio jack and Bluetooth to make other devices smart, while Alexa is present to perform all the same magic as in other models. Similar to the newer model above, this device is great for small spaces.
Amazon Echo Dot with Clock (4th generation)
- Dimensions: 100 x 100 x 89mm, 338g
- Audio: Built-in speaker, 3.5mm connection
This is a no brainer as a bedside companion. Adding a clock to the latest Echo Dot means you can glance at it for the time and use it as an alarm. It's not the only visual feedback you get, either, with things like the temperature also shown. Since it sounds the same as the standard Echo Dot (4th generation), we'd only really advise picking this model up for small spaces.
Amazon Echo Studio
- Dimensions: 175 x 206 x 175mm, 3.5kg
- Audio: 5.25-inch woofer, 3x 2-inch midrange speakers, 1-inch tweeter, 3.5mm connection
The Echo Studio is Amazon's best option for those serious about listening to music. This speaker is Dolby Atmos compatible and supports Sony's Audio 360 format, too. It's designed to give you a bigger and more immersive sound than previous Echo devices.
Amazon Echo Show 5
- Dimensions: 148 x 86 x 73mm, 410g
- Camera: 1-megapixel sensor (2019), 2 megapixel (2021)
- Audio: 5-microphone array, 1.65-inch speaker, 3.5mm output
The Echo Show 5 is a super little device at a great price. In fact, because it's often available at the same price as the standard Amazon Echo, it presents a nice alternative for different users. For those who really enjoy having visual feedback from Alexa, and need a device for their bedside table, this is the pick.
The 2021 version of the Show 5 features a 2-megapixel camera, and is also offered in a new blue shade, as well.
Amazon Echo Show 8
- Dimensions: 200.4 x 135.9 x 99.1mm, 1037g
- Camera: 1-megapixel sensor (2019), 13 megapixel sensor (2021)
- Audio: 4-microphone array, dual 2-inch speakers, 3.5mm connection
The in-between Echo Show is an 8-inch version, slotting into the space between the largest and the smallest. It packs beefy audio power, while also offering a cover for the camera on the front.
A new version of the Show 8 was launched for 2021, featuring a much better 13 megapixel camera. Although the device remains static, the camera will follow you as you move, meaning you're always in the picture on video calls. It's an ideal choice for kitchens, living rooms and other spaces throughout the home.
Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd generation)
- Dimensions: 251 x 229 x 170 mm, 2.5kg
- Camera: 13 megapixel sensor
- Audio: 2 x 1.0-inch tweeters plus one 3.0-inch woofer
The latest version of Amazon's largest Echo Show retains the 10-inch display of previous models, but it seriously ups the ante in terms of what it can offer. Echo Show 10 now boasts a rotating display that can follow users as they move around the room. It's great for video calls while you're doing other stuff, such as cooking a meal in the kitchen, and the device packs top audio power, too.
