Amazon Echo Show 15 vs Amazon Echo Show 10: Which Smart Display Is Better? – Yahoo Lifestyle

January 30, 2022 by No Comments

Amazon’s expansion into the world of smart home devices continues with the recent release of the Echo Show 15, a wall-mounted display that acts as a hub for your entire smart home. We wouldn’t say that Amazon dominates the smart home market, but it’s on its way. (The Amazon ecosystem now includes products like Amazon Alexa, Blink security cameras, Echo Dot speakers, Fire TVs, eero Mesh Routers, and even a flying indoor security drone.)

SPY just reviewed the impressive Echo Show 15, but you might be wondering exactly how it differs from the popular Echo Show 10, which came out about a year ago. To help you better figure out which version may work the best for your personal needs, we’ve pitted the two home devices against one another in head-to-head combat to the death. Okay, so not really. No smart displays were harmed in the making of this review.

The biggest difference is obvious: the 10 has a 10.1-inch display and the 15 has a 15.6-inch display. And since both of these displays cost $250, which one should you buy for your home?

To help you decide, we’ve compared the two devices side-by-side so you can see all the differences between the two devices and make an informed decision when shopping for the best smart displays. Below, you’ll see a breakdown covering the specs, design, display, audio, and even the software between the Echo Show 10 and the Echo Show 15.

Design: Echo Show 15 Stands Out

The Show 15 is a pretty stark departure from the 10 in several ways. In fact, the Echo Show 15 is downright showy in comparison, largely due to the vivid 15.6-inch display (more on that in a moment), which is a considerable upgrade from the 10.1-inch display of the 10. Compared to the speaker-focused base of the Echo Show 10, there’s a noticeable difference in user experience. The Show 10 is a hybrid between a smart speaker and display, while the Show 15 is more akin to a smart picture frame — even down to its thick bezel. (This is a thick device, especially since it’s meant to be wall mounted.)

As we pointed out in our review, putting the Show 15 on a table might cause some to think it’s just a monitor, while the Show 10 stands out as a smart speaker. Additionally, if you choose not to wall-mount the Show 15, you’ll need to get a separate stand for it. Overall, we prefer the updated design fo the Echo Show 15, which has the stylish design you want in a $250 device.

The Bottom Line: The Echo …….
