We’re only halfway through 2019 but I can confidently say it’s been a great year for technology lovers.
Whether you’re into gaming, TVs or headphones, the top technology houses have all released great devices to enhance your entertainment and communications.
Below are three devices I fell in love with this year.
For the majority of the last decade, the Samsung Galaxy has reigned supreme as the best Android smartphone device. However, in recent years, Huawei has slowly been closing this gap with each iteration of its ‘P Series’.
This year’s P30 Pro is the device that finally unseats the Samsung Galaxy S10 from its throne. It is powered by a massive 4,200mah battery that even heavy users will only have to charge overnight.
Also impressive is IP68 water and dust resistance, reverse wireless charging, and accurate in-display fingerprint scanner. It’s Kirin 980 chipset processor is also very fast and will having you zipping between apps quicker than you’d expect”!
What sets the Huawei apart from its competition: The Huawei P30 Pro boasts the best camera ever seen in a smartphone. It has a 5x optical zoom and a further 10x lossless hybrid zoom that’ll mean that your photos look crystal clear no matter how far you are away from your subject.
Also consider: There are so many great phones available. With pretty much every flagship device you can’t go wrong, from Samsung Galaxy 10, iPhone X or even the OnePlus x?
Vaping is gradually becoming more prevalent than smoking. The biggest vaping brands have responded to this increase in market demand by investing heavily in R&D and squeezing as much tech into their vaping devices as possible.
The Davinci IQ is very pretty to look at but it is its vaping performance where it shines. The entire air path is made from ceramic zirconium. This material provides a good flavour as glass but has the advantage of being over 20x stronger!
Another interesting piece of tech is a special knob in the oven that Davinci has dubbed ‘The Pearl’ this cleverly distributes heat in the oven to ensure the entire contents are heated evenly.
What sets the Davinci IQ apart from its competition?: The Davinci IQ has an app that you can download to your iOS or Android phone for a greater degree of control over your experience. One of these included features is ‘Smart Path Technology’. This allows the user to create a bespoke vaping experience with just a few swipes of their finger.
Also consider: The Pax 3 is possibly the only high-end vaporizer that has better aesthetics than the Davinci IQ. however, if performance is the key driver for you, you can’t go wrong with The Mighty by Storz & Bickel.
Apple Macbook Pro 2019
The right laptop for you depends on how you plan to use it. If you use your computer for work like me, you’ll likely need a device powerful and portable.
The Apple Macbook Pro is the best combination of power and speed versus portability and battery life. It effortlessly handles everything from massive Lightroom exports to 4K video editing despite being just over half an inch thick and weighing less than 2kg.
What sets the Macbook Pro apart from the competition?: Along the top of the keyboard, you’ll find Apple’s Touch Bar. This row of virtual buttons dynamically changes according to your current app, which can be very useful. The Touch Bar automatically displays adjustment buttons and sliders depending on your selected pallet or tool.
Also consider: The Dell XPS 15 is a great choice for Windows users. It’s slightly slower than the MacBook Pro but the difference is minimal. Also Asus Zenbook’s are getting better and better. Their newest flagship, the Zenbook pro 15 is similar in performance to the Macbook Pro.
