Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus
Samsung’s finest phone with a large screen and excellent camera
Weight: 189g | Dimensions: 158.1 x 73.8 x 8.5 mm | OS: Android 8 | Screen size: 6.2-inch | Resolution: 1440 x 2960 | CPU: Snapdragon 845 / Exynos 9810 | RAM: 6GB | Storage: 64GB/128GB | Battery: 3,500mAh | Rear camera: Dual 12MP | Front camera: 8MP
The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is the finest phone in the market for multiple reasons, but the write-home-to-mother feature has to be the low-light camera.
Samsung is making a giant deal about the camera on the S9 range and for a decent reason, on the back of the S9 Plus are dual 12MP cameras, both with an inspiring f/1.5 maximum opening. At the time of writing the S9 series is the only handset with a camera aperture this wide, making its low-light ability second-to-none.
Add on upper of that the ‘infinity’ screen that the Samsung Galaxy range is now renowned for, and this big-screened beauty securely takes the top spot. We believed the AR Emoji feature was overvalued, but if you’re in the market for the finest screen and greatest camera on a phone, this is the handset for you.
Huawei MateBook X Pro
Our new choice for the best laptop in the world
CPU: 8th generation Intel Core i5 – i7 | Graphics: Intel UHD Graphics 620 , Nvidia GeForce MX150 2GB GDDR5 | RAM: 8GB – 16GB | Screen: 13.9-inch 3K (3,000 x 2,080) | Storage: 512GB SSD
Beautiful design | Fantastic display | No SD card slot | Webcam not great
The Huawei MateBook X Pro is our innovative choice for the unsurpassed laptop money can buy in 2018, after ages of this list being conquered by the (still outstanding) Dell XPS 13, which is now in another place. While Huawei hasn’t been making laptops for as long as more recognized builders in this list, it has unconditionally hit it out the park with the MateBook X Pro.
This is an awesomely-designed laptop with a stunning screen (albeit with a rather odd aspect ratio), and it comes full with cutting-edge components that allow it to perform dazzlingly, and a battery life that runs rings around many of its rivals. It also has a very modest price, giving you features, design, and performance for quite a bit less money.
Samsung Q9FN QLED (2018)
The excellent TV ever? Possibly will be!
65-inch: Samsung QE65Q9FN
Spectacular HDR picture quality | Powerful, well-rounded sound | Limited viewing angles
After an underwhelming entrance, Samsung’s QLED technology really needed to bounce back in style in 2018. It didn’t surprise us in the least, then, to discover Samsung threw the kitchen sink in with its new Q9FN QLED Series of TVs.
As well as being even livelier and more colorful than last year’s corresponding model, Samsung’s 2018 flagship screens use a completely different lighting system to combat its predecessor’s contrast problems: Full Array Local Dimming rather than edge-lit LED lighting. The FALD panel works in tandem with Samsung QLED Quantum Dots to produce a picture that’s brighter and more colorful than near any we’ve seen come from the South Korean manufacturer.
Do those features alone make Samsung Q9FN the best TV on the market? No, but throw in technology like HDR10+ and Q HDR EliteMax – what Samsung bills as its maximum High Dynamic Range experience that’s exclusive to the Q9FN – and there’s very little doubt in our mind that this is Samsung’s best TV ever.
Best games console
Sony’s souped-up PS4 Pro is amazing for 4K TV owners
Dimensions: 29.5 x 32.7 x 5.5 cm (W x L x H) | GPU: 4.20 TFLOPS, AMD Radeon™ based graphics engine | RAM: 8 GB of GDDR5, 1 GB DDR3 | Communication: USB 3.1, HDMI 2.0a, Ethernet, Optical Audio and PlayStation Camera ports, Dual-band 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0 | Max Resolution: 3840 × 2160 | Maximum controllers: 4 | Storage: 1TB
First 4K HDR Sony console | 1TB hard drive | No 4K Blu-ray player | Pro Mode support isn’t universal
The clash between Sony’s PlayStation comforts and Microsoft’s Xbox series is hard-fought, but right now we think the PS4 Pro has the advantage over the Xbox One S, thanks to a mixture of decent hardware, great games, and a substantial online offering.
An upgrading on the already very robust PS4, the PS4 Pro supports 4K and HDR skills; plus, with advances in frame rate due to beefed-up processing speeds, gaming will look cleaner, crisper and smoother.
The only thing stopping the PS4 Pro from being the final console is the omission of an Ultra HD Blu-ray drive. Instead, you’ll have to rely on streaming to get your 4K media to fix.
Best fitness tracker
The no-screen wonder
Screen: No | Heart rate tracker: No | Waterproof: Yes | Activity tracking: Yes | GPS: Yes, through phone | Battery life: Six months | Compatibility: Android/iOS
Great battery life | Cheap price | Limited features | No screen
The Moov Now doesn’t have all the bells and whistles you would associate with a suitability tracker. It doesn’t have GPS tracking, it doesn’t even have a screen, but what it does have are a cheap price tag and six-month battery life. Yes, you read that right: six months.
During those six months, you can track your steps, your sleep, your fitness, your running technique and a whole lot more. This may be an unusual suitability tracker, but it’s a great one.
High resolution meets high speed
Type: DSLR | Sensor size: Full-frame CMOS | Resolution: 45.4MP | Lens: Nikon F mount | Viewfinder: Optical | Screen type: 3.2-inch tilting touchscreen, 2,359,000 dots | Maximum continuous shooting speed: 7fps | Movies: 4K | User level: Intermediate/expert
Stunning image quality | Excellent performance | Slow Live View AF speed | SnapBridge connectivity
It has a vivid 45.4MP full-frame sensor, spectacular image quality, and that’s where the story starts.
It has a classy 153-point AF system and 9fps burst shooting speed. The D850 is just as home shooting wildlife, landscape, and portraits. He thinks it could maybe the most well-rounded camera he’s ever seen.
New iPad (2017)
The best iPad, giving you plenty of power and maximum bang for your buck
Weight: 469g | Dimensions: 240 x 169.5 x 7.5 mm | OS: iOS 10 | Screen size: 9.7-inch | Resolution: 1536 x 2048 pixels | CPU: A9 | RAM: 2GB | Storage: 32GB/128GB | microSD slot: No | Battery: approx 8,800mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 1.2MP
Beautiful 9.7-inch screen | Cheaper than predecessor | Thicker than Air 2 | No 256GB option
The best tablet on the market right now is the new iPad (2017), with its sharp 9.7-inch display, beautiful design, and A9 chip – and all for a price that isn’t going to break the bank.
While the new iPad (2017) isn’t doing anything revolutionary, it’s a solid update on an already five-star device, and at a much more palatable price.
The new iPad starts off at 32GB of storage rather than Apple’s usual 16GB and considering it’s cheaper than the entry-level iPad Air 2, that’s seriously good value for money.
Apple Watch 3
A better connection with the world’s best smartwatch
OS: watchOS 4 | Compatibility: iOS | Display: 1.53″ OLED | Processor: S2 dual-core | Band sizes: Varies drastically per watch size | Onboard storage: 8GB / 16GB (Non-LTE and LTE respectively) | Battery: 18 hours | Charging method: Wireless | IP rating: IPX7 | Connectivity: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC
Brilliant fitness tracking | Non-LTE version much better value | LTE is unnecessary expense | Battery too short for sleep tracking
Apple has achieved to hit itself off the top spot for the best smartwatch with the outstanding Apple Watch 3. It will appear very acquainted to anyone who has the Apple Watch 2, as it’s fundamentally the similar frame with dissimilar innards, but those innards make all the change.
One of the main variations is the addition of LTE connectivity, which is a countless addition. For those that have been yearning for it, the feature has lastly out, and for those that couldn’t care less, you can pick up a non-LTE version for an inexpensive price that still comprises upgrades on the Watch 2 like lengthier battery life and quicker speed when flicking through.
The Apple Watch Series 3 is water-resistant, has GPS capabilities and looks decent on the wrist. The real question is whether another company is going to be able to take the highest spot off Apple, or if this space is going to stay the same until the Apple Watch 4 comes out.
Best VR headset
HTC Vive wins the first battle in the VR war
Screen resolution: 2160 x 1200 | Compatibility: Windows | Field of View: 110 degrees | Play-space: 13 x 13 feet | Controllers included?: Yes | Weight: 470g
Best overall VR experience
Software partnership with Valve | Requires a high-end GPU | The most expensive option
The HTC Vive is the finest VR headset in the world right now. The panels are spontaneous to use, the resolution is unbelievable, with a 1080p screen per eye, and the base positions mean you can play in a space that’s 13 x 13 feet in size – that’s some thoughtful playing space to blow yourself around in.
Like most of the entries on our list this is a first-class product at a high price, but if you’re viewing for the best first-generation VR headset around, then the HTC Vive is the one to go for.
Sennheiser Momentum Wireless
The complete package… for a price
Acoustic design: Closed | Weight: N/A | Cable length: 4.6 feet | Frequency response: 16-22,000Hz | Drivers: N/A | Driver type: Dynamic | Sensitivity: N/A | Impedance: 28 ohms | Battery life: 25+ hours | Wireless range: 30+ feet | NFC: Yes
Great sound | Good-looking | Exceptional battery life | That price
Picking a ‘best pair of headphones’ is a tricky plan, since everyone desires something somewhat dissimilar from their listening strategies.
If you need a frivolous pair for the gym then you’re perhaps better off with a pair of wireless earbuds; or, if you do most of your snooping at home and want the best-possible sound excellence, then a pair of wired over-ears might be better.
But if we had to pick the finest headphones overall then we’d go for the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless. They’re wireless, which makes them more suitable for portable use, and they’re noise-canceling for those who want to use them on a noisy travel.
And, most prominently, they do all this without negotiating on sound quality, which still lives up to the high values that Sennheiser usually achieves. Oh, and they look pretty decent as well.
There are unconditionally better-sounding, better-looking and better noise-canceling earphones out there, but none of them do everything better than the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless, which makes them the best overall pair of headphones around right now.
That said, if you do want to get the complete best, untainted, sound quality, we recommend the fantastic Oppo PM-3’s.
