The Amazon Echo Show has always struggled with a mild identity crisis. Until now, it’s been easy to write it off as an “Amazon Echo with a screen,” even though new models in different sizes have appeared over the last couple of years.
But the company has taken a big leap forward with the third-generation Echo Show 10. Its fresh design, and Amazon’s continued focus on improving the overall user experience has made this smart speaker feel fresh, and differentiate itself in a crowded field.
The first thing you’ll notice about the Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) is its new design. The 10-inch HD screen is attached to a base that looks like a smaller version of its Echo Studio speaker. This new look feels modern, and elevates the screen off the ground, which makes it easier to see while you’re standing up. I’ve tested a couple of generations of the Echo Show, and this is a very welcome improvement.
