What makes it different?

The Smart display poses a direct challenge to the Amazon Echo Show which too is a Home system with a display.

But slapping a display to a smart-speaker is different than making a Smart-display-speaker kinda thing!

Don't get me wrong here (echo owners and amazon specially!), but Amazon echo show misses some features like YouTube Playback which Lenovo Smart-Display has.

Also the fact that, The very base model of Amazon Echo Show starts with the price of ~$229; is enough to show the difference.

Talking about Personal Assistants, I frankly don't see much different in this niche, but after all, it depends on your point of looking at things.

On the speaker side, qualities of both speakers are almost same and no serious difference can be observed (or heard!).

But as I mentioned, there are some limitations that Amazon Echo Show has that Lenovo Smart Display beautifully fulfills.

If you liked Amazon Echo Show much more, here you go.
