Amazon Echo Show 8

There are quite a few different smart displays on the market, but Amazon's continue to be some of our absolute favorites. Its latest second-gen Echo Show 8 is our runner-up pick for the best smart display of 2023 overall, and right now, you can snag one at a serious discount. The online retailer currently has it on sale for just $75, which saves you $55 and is just $5 more than the all-time lowest price we've seen. There's no set expiration for this deal, so we'd recommend getting your order in sooner rather than later if you don't want to miss out on these savings. 

In certain areas of your home, a smart display makes much more sense than a traditional smart speaker. Not only do you benefit from all of the voice-based Alexa commands but there's a built-in touchscreen that works great for browsing recipes, watching video content, checking in on smart home security cameras or just seeing how long is left on your timer without having to ask. With a built-in camera, you can also use the Echo Show 8 for video calls and, when not in use, the device can operate as a digital photo frame. 

The model on sale is Amazon's latest Echo Show 8, the second-gen device from 2021, and features notable upgrades over the original model including a more powerful eight-core processor and a boosted 13-megapixel camera. And to help you take full advantage of its features, you can check out our roundup of all the best smart home deals for bargains on compatible smart lights, smart plugs and more.
