Smart displays combine the features and functions of a smart speaker and a tablet device. Not only can you control your home entertainment with voice commands, your smart display can also allow you to watch videos, chat with family and friends as well do all the things you would do with a tablet device.

We test smart displays in separate contexts, as they're able to complete tasks in two distinct areas:

  • How well they perform as home automation devices.
  • How well they perform as a speaker and display for music, radio, video and so on.

Our expert testers give each smart display a thorough workout to help find the models that:

  • are the easiest to set up and use
  • have the best sound quality
  • have the best voice assistant.

Our interactive comparison tool helps you compare how well the smart speakers recognise voice commands, what features and services they offer and which third-party streaming services, home automation devices and websites they work with. Our Recommended rating will help you quickly see which models come out on top.

    Smart clocks are handy to have in the bedroom, but don't expect huge sound out of the small speaker, while the Smart display at larger than 6-inches can deliver a louder (but not always better) sound.
