No dislikes. My wife has MS and AI is not just a fancy pile of gadgets, it's a real work saver for anyone disabled. it adds yet another step to our home entertainment, a big thing for us as we are limited in a few ways.
Alexa mostly displays something different than what is being requested. You must be tech savvy to set up devices. My Ring video doorbell works, but I must still walk up to the unit to activate the mic, easier to use my phone which is closer at hand. Overall, not user friendly and poor setup guidance available. What is working well, is the camera following your every move and the system listening in to your conversation.
I have this product for a while now and I can undoubtedly tell this has been my worst Amazon Alexa product purchase yet. The motion sensor doesn't work as intended. The screen moves around despite you turning it off. (After factory reset too). Alexa doesn't hear you at all. Have to restart device to have her listening. This has happened in multiple instance. Cool concept but can't deliver. So, DO NOT BUY.
I’ve had three different models of Alexa devices and this one is by FAR the best. I love the design, the sound and the screen quality. I don’t require the motion sensor ability, as it’s in one fixed position, so I cannot comment upon the value of that. It makes a functional and stylish addition to my bedside table.
We had a little shaky start when it wouldn't allow us to view any video content. A quick help search found the answer and the device is working as expected. We are still learning about different features but it was worth the cost
The motion feature is abit annoying. Sometimes it works really well. Other times, it says it hit something, but there is nothing near it. Sometimes it won’t move at all. Love the screen quality. Has great sound. Overall it’s pretty good device
An excellent design for video calls with family members. The camera is far superior to my Echo Show 8 and the motion feature is just awesome. I’m very disappointed with only one aspect. I purchased this item to act as a digital photo frame when not in use (10” is so great for this) BUT the device fails to load and display my Amazon Photos. I have them working fine on my Echo Show 8 but even after spending 1 hour on the phone with tech support they could not fix this bug. I hope someone provides a fix for this soon!!
This review is specifically for the previous generation of the Echo Show 10 but still pertains to the software running on this hardware device.
Amazon, within the past couple of months, introduced the "Alexa For Your Day" feature/screen. The "Alexa For Your Day" screen ruins the overall experience, which was mostly good for more than a year. As of now, there is no way to disable it and users are forced to have their devices display it. There has been a substantial negative response to the forced content; however, Amazon has yet to alter their policy. If it were an honest error/omission they would have already corrected it.
