  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    • 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.

    EcoFlow Wave is one of the most convenient portable air conditioners for campers and RVers

    • 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.
