Agree, show 5 for bedroom, show 8 for elsewhere.
You’re absolutely right. The Show 8 is tons better. BUT for someone wanting a bedside device, the 8 is going to be to big for most. The 5 is more than good enough for the uses intended. I appreciate its not much mor for the 8 but having tried both on the bedside the 8 was just too big
Had one of these when released and as an alarm clock it works well if a little expensive for what is it Unless you HAVE to have a round bedside clock, I’d say the Show 5 when on offer is always a better option. I certainly could t go back
had one that developed the flickering fault (was a prize) eventually got amazon to phone me explained the fault telling them it was 'a know issue' and they agreed to replace it free (way over a year old too).offered me a echo show 5 ...I asked if i could get a show 8 instead ...they agreed !.had to buy it and they refunded it after purchase. worth a go if you have a faulty one
Anyone considering this, look at the Echo Show 8. I love mine and no danger of the flickering screen reported in many of the Spots.
