Smart displays have a lot to offer and they can be a worthy upgrade over a standard smart speaker. Amazon makes some of the best and most popular options we've seen and it offers Echo Show smart displays in a range of sizes from 5 to 15 inches. For most people out there, the Echo Show 8 is the best option but the Echo Show 15 is a monster display that can be placed on a wall. It's the closest thing to living in the future we've seen yet.
Ahead of Presidents Day, Amazon has slashed the price of a number of its Echo Show devices by up to 40%. None of these Presidents Day Amazon device deals require that you enter any codes or clip any coupons, but these prices are unlikely to hang around for long so keep that in mind.
In certain areas of your home, a smart display makes more sense than a traditional smart speaker. While you'll still benefit from all of the voice-based Alexa commands, the built-in touchscreen is ideal for following a recipe, checking home security cameras, streaming video or seeing the week's weather forecast. There's also a built-in camera for video calls and, when you're not actively using the device, it can function as a digital photo frame.
