To save you the hassle of going through tedious research, we have come up with a list of our top picks for the best gadgets you can get today. You can consider this as your new shopping list.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is the first-ever smartphone that has an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor integrated into its display. It is the first phone from the manufacturer that features five cameras, including an ultra-wide camera on the back. The Snapdragon 855 processor also makes it one of the fastest Android smartphones yet.
Although the Infinity-O display looks astonishing on the Galaxy S10 Plus, the two punch holes for the front cameras tend to be distracting. Nevertheless, you have the option to hide them if you want.
If you’re looking for a smartphone that is equally as functional but more budget-friendly, check out this list of the best BLU phones currently available.
Dell XPS 13 (2019)
The Dell XPS 13 is arguably the best compact laptop you can get right now. It is powered by the eighth-generation of Intel Core processors and up to 16 GB of DDR3 RAM. You can also max out the storage with an enormous 2 TB SSD.
Additionally, the XPS 13 features a high-resolution 4K display that supports HDR video via Dolby Vision. The only downside to this device is that it runs on integrated graphics. Otherwise, it is a great compact laptop for people on the go. Dell also offers a version with a 1080p display and touchscreen.
LG C9 OLED
The LG C9 OLED offers an unmatched blend of excellent media performance, advanced features, and state-of-the-art technology. It comes in an elegant design that leverages the unique properties of OLED to produce a remarkably thin form factor backed with a classy brushed aluminum finish.
Some of the most impressive features of the LG C9 OLED are the four HDMI 2.1 ports. They have support for 4K at 120 Hz for enhanced gaming experience and can handle uncompressed audio for soundbars and surround sound systems.
PlayStation 4 Pro
Best Gaming Console
The PlayStation 4 Pro has been out for over three years, yet it is still considered by many as the best console available today. However, it may not be the wisest investment if you don’t own a TV with support for 4K and HDR. Without a 4K TV, you will still enjoy higher frame rates compared to the base model, but won’t be able to take full advantage of the superior viewing offered by the console.
Fitbit Charge 3
Best Fitness Tracker
The Fitbit Charge 3 provides some of the best fitness tracking experience in a stylish band design. Although it was released last year, it remains to be the company’s most high-spec fitness tracker. It offers several exercise tracking modes in addition to sleep and heart rate monitoring. Additionally, it is waterproof and comes in a bigger screen than the Charge 2.
It should be noted that Charge 3 does not have any pressable buttons. Instead of the tap-to-cycle screen that came with its predecessor, it features a full touchscreen. It also comes with a proprietary charger and has a battery that can last for up to seven days.
Despite the increasing popularity of mirrorless cameras, the Nikon D850 still manages to maintain its authority as one of the best cameras on the market. It has a set of well-rounded features that appeal to a range of users. If you are looking for high resolution, the D580 comes with a 45 MP full-frame sensor. If you need speed, it features a 7 FPS burst shooting option, which improves to 9 FPS with a battery grip. Additionally, it is capable of 4K video recording. One aspect mirrorless cameras can’t compete with DSLRs is the battery life, and the D850 is capable of a massive 1800 frames per change.
Apple iPad Pro 11 (2018)
The Apple iPad Pro 11 is a versatile two-in-one device when attached to its folio keyboard case, and an elegant large touchscreen in itself. Most of the grievances from earlier models have been ironed out. The Apple Pencil now connects to the tablet magnetically, the speakers have been enhanced, and the screen-to-body ratio is much better. One of the most prominent complaints users have is the lack of a headphone jack. Other than that, it’s hard to see where Apple can improve on it even more.
Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2
The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 is the refined version of the company’s sporty smartwatch. It comes with a digital bezel along with several other advanced features to become one of the best wearable devices available today. The build quality is manageable and rigorous enough to withstand runs, yet it packs enough features to give the competition a run for their money.
Like its predecessor, the Active2 has an aluminum housing that comes in cloud silver, aqua black, and pink gold colors. The device also has an LTE version that comes in stainless steel and comes in silver, black, and gold.
The Active2 has a 1.2-inch or 1.4-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 360×360. Most of the first-party apps are optimized for the small display, but some third-party apps can be hard to navigate through.
Best Smart Speaker
The Sonos One is a feature-rich and great-sounding smart speaker with built-in support for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Additionally, it has a new feature that allows the device to talk to Siri and form a multi-room pairing with the Apple HomePod. Aside from having one of the best-sounding speakers, it is easily one of the most versatile smart speakers in the market.
That sums up our picks for the top technological gadgets you can get today. If you’re willing to spend the money, these devices are sure to enhance the way you live and make you future-proof for the next few years.
