Amazon Echo Show 5 review: Alexa for your bedside

The Show 5 is the smallest of the screen-based Alexa devices, with a 5.5-inch display and single speaker -- but it sounds good considering the size. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There is touchscreen control and physical buttons on the top for volume adjustment or to mute the device -- but most control will be via voice using Alexa. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There's a 2-megapixel camera on the front for video calling -- double the resolution of the original product -- with a pricacy cover you can slide closed. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Echo Show 5 offers all of Alexa's Skills, meaning voice requests, smart home control, and integration with other Alexa devices. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Echo Show 5 is Amazon's smallest smart display and a great bedside device. If you don't like the camera idea then the Echo Dot with Clock is better suited. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
