IFA is Europe's big consumer tech show. Every year we head over to Berlin to check out everything in person. This year, we're also honoring the standouts with our Best of IFA award. This year, five products really caught our eye.

In no particular order, here are our five Best of IFA award recipients for 2016:

Samsung Gear S3

The Gear S3 sees Samsung's wearable mature into a complete and compelling product. The design and features have been refined to near perfection. The wearable is attractive, powerful, and smart all at the same time.

Check out the details and our hands-on.

Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod

Hasselblad and Motorola both played a role in the first moon landing back in 1969. The companies saw fit to partner on this module, which compliments the Moto Z Play Droid. It brings 10x optical zoom to Motorola's smartphone in a compact and useful add-on.

Check out the details and our hands-on.

Sony Xperia XZ

The Xperia ZX sees Sony mix just the right set of ingredients to bake its best smartphone. Sony put a lot of effort into the ZX's 23-megapixel camera, which promises to outshoot the competition. Toss in the capable selfie cam, swift processor, and rapid charging, and Sony has finally found its champion.

Check out the details and our hands-on.

ZTE Axon 7 mini

Few mid-range phones look as good or perform as well as the Axon Mini 7. ZTE was able to boil down the essential elements of its flagship smartphone without making too many sacrifices. The result is a usable, high-quality handset that impresses.

Check out the details and our hands-on.

Huawei Nova

Huawei is targeting Apple fans with the Nova. This handset features sleek lines, quality craftsmanship, and superb battery performance. Huawei has a hit on its hands with the Nova.
