TikTok Has Deemed This Smart Device As a Budget-Friendly ‘Mini Frame TV’ Dupe

Samsung’s Frame TV has become a luxurious piece of home decor, offering up entertainment and style to upgrade the regular television set (it even snagged a partnership with Disney). For those not looking to spend $1,000+ on a new TV though, TikTok has discovered the ultimate dupe that’s small-space friendly and under $300.

Amazon’s new Echo Show 15 is the latest in the brand’s Echo Show series, bringing a compact yet elegant way to watch TV and gather information at the touch of a button. TikTok has deemed the smart device to be the ultimate dupe, labelling it a “mini Frame TV” as it offers that framed photo aesthetic with all the benefits of a smart home device.

They make a MINI FRAME TV?! 😍 Ok so it’s actually the @amazon Alexa Show 15 AND it’s even better than a frame tv IMO. It’s so aesthetically pleasing 🤗 choose a frame and swap out artwork (aka photos) any time you please! But also watch a movie, add to your calendar, play a game, make a grocery list, and literally anything else you can imagine. It will easily be the best thing you add to any room. We already had multiple Alexa devices, but when Amazon released this version, I immediately wanted it because 1) it’s beautiful and 2) it wouldn’t take up counter space in the kitchen. Now that I have it, I’M OBSESSED 🤩 Want to add this to your home? Here’s how! ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Tap the link in my bio Click on my Amazon Storefront or LTK Tap the image of this space Add the items to your cart & checkout! To install: @Amazon’s Alexa and @DataCommElectronics’ outlet both come with instructions AND templates that make mounting super easy. Seriously, it’s beginner level easy! You know you want it. Are you checking out yet? 😜 #fyp #homedecor #diyhome #amazonfinds #homeinspo #frametv #amazonalexa #amazonstorefront #ltkhome @Amazon Home @Amazon Influencer Program

Similar to the Frame TV, TikTok users have show multiple ways to hang the Echo Show on the wall or use the included mount to rest it on your countertop. From there, the TikToker lists all the different advantages of the device, including its low price tag of $280.

Of course, at 15.6 inches, the Echo Show won’t completely replace a big-screen TV. And its HD screen won’t be the same as a 4K TV set. Still, for a mini Frame TV alternative, this is a solid bet.

What Is the Echo Show 15?

As the latest release for Echo Show devices, the Echo Show 15 looks to act as an in-home hub for all your entertainment and daily needs. Just like with other Echo Show devices, you can download streaming platforms including Paramount+, Hulu and Peacock, check your calendar, make a grocery list and even display artwork when the device isn’t in use.

Similar to the Frame TV, you can choose from a selection of frames to border the device and give it a more elegant touch.
