The 2nd-gen Amazon Echo Show 8 is a smart home steal right now

8in smart display is half price during Black Friday week

Amazon Echo Show 8 Black Friday deals

The Amazon Black Friday deals just keep coming, with the retailer applying heavy discounts to a number of its most popular Echo Show smart display products as part of the busiest part of the tech shopping calendar.

Right now, you can pick up the second-gen Echo Show 8 at a mega £60 price drop, or $75 for those in the US. It’s currently available for just £60 in the UK, a generous 50% discount on its usual £120 asking price. For US buyers, you can save a cool 58% on the usual $130.

We gave the original product a perfect 5/5 star score in our Amazon Echo Show 8 (1st gen) review, and the 2021 release built on this great bit of kit. There’s now a third-gen version with a slightly slicker design, faster processor and centred camera, but you’re not missing out on very much by opting for the deal listed here.

As we said in our full Echo Show 8 (2021) review, the changes to the 2nd-gen Echo Show 8 weren’t huge either, but the camera got boosted to a much more respectable 13MP number (up from a lowly 1MP) – a pretty important upgrade when it comes to video calling. There’s also a faster processor for good measure, and beyond that, the same 5-star package from the original.

The Echo Show 8 deal will bring all of Alexa’s smarts into your home, with the device’s 8in display being a good fit for video calling, while a pair of 2in speaker drivers ensure it produces room-filling sound.

In fact, we reckon the Echo Show 8 is good enough as a speaker alone that it could serve as the primary Bluetooth audio output for most music fans, or an auxiliary device for audiophiles.
