The Echo Show is the most affordable smart display, packing an Alexa speaker with a five-inch display, plus camera. When you ask Alexa for information, you can see it on-screen too. It can play video, whether that's from online (great for recipes), from compatible smart security cameras, or from video calling with other Echo Show devices.
The Echo Plus is a bigger, beefier Alexa speaker than the regular model, with more powerful Dolby-tuned sound. The real draw, though, is the built-in Zigbee control hub: this wireless tech is used by lots of smart home devices, including Philips Hue bulbs. It means you can control a whole range of smart home gadgets without needing a hub for them – they connect directly to the Echo Plus, and you can even add them to the system just asking Alexa to scan for them, instead of fiddling with apps.
