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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
CES is the world's consumer tech show. Every year we head out to Vegas to check out everything in person.
Motorola has a new $500 phone and it's kind of a big deal. While Motorola has been successful with more affordable phones lately, not since 2017 have all of the big three US carriers offered a Motorola phone over $400.
Sep 7, 2022
Apple has revealed the iPhone 14 series, with new features, improved specs, and new size options. In place of a Mini option, the iPhone 14 will come in the same 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screen size options as the Pro models.
The new OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro bring 5G, an updated design, and updated specs to OnePlus's lineup of high-end phones. For the first time, the standard and "Pro" models are being launched at the same time, making for a more rational lineup.
Samsung's new flagship Galaxy S phones for 2020 are somewhat predictable in appearance and features, and they've leaked like crazy, but there are a few surprises. There's no smaller, more affordable model like last year's S10e, nor is there a separate 5G model.
