Amazon Echo Show – Your Personal Wikipedia! [REVIEW]

The Amazon Echo Show could have been great, but I’m expecting a bit more from a 200$-tablet style device.


  • It’s very futuristic and cool
  • Nice design
  • Very sturdy
  • Sound quality is amazing
  • Easy to use
  • Also available in German
  • It has a webcam (but you can’t use Skype)
  • More skills are added via the app
  • Touchscreen is great


  • Design is nice for some people, others might find it too big and heavy
  • You’ll need a power supply
  • Youtube or regular browsing is not featured (yet – anymore)
  • Calling via Bluetooth not available in EU
  • Alexa can’t answer all your questions



It’s a difficult one to recommend. I’d love to tell you to go out and buy this asap, but right now, it’s not worth it’s price. As a personal assistant for some quick news facts, setting an alarm or playing music: it’s great! But if you want to watch YouTube-videos or go to a specific website, you can’t. YouTube is (right now) not supported for me. It was added in the past, then deleted, and then added again, but only in US I think. Not in Europe for example. Also you can’t use the webcam with Skype for example or call phone numbers if you’re not in the US. Let’s put it this way: if YouTube gets back online in the future (which will probably happen), this will be a great device! If they could add Netflix and Skype as well, it would be a bargain for 200$. Let’s hope for it in the future! You can find the Echo Show here for the best price!


Simon loves gadgets even more than he loves chocolate, and he’s from Belgium… How weird.
