Speaking about handling the device, it’s very light and weighs only 410 grams. The dimensions are 5.8×3.4×2.9-inches making it easier to carry anywhere you like.
The device has very easy controls with buttons for volume control, for switching on/off the mics and cameras. There is also one more button to place shutter on the camera which you will not find on Amazon Echo Spot and Amazon Echo Show. The audio on the The Echo Show 5 comes from the 1.65-inch built in speaker and it also features a 3.5mm stereo audio output which can be connected to any external speaker through an aux cable.
