Top 5: Gadgets for 2013

top-5My list of top 5 gadgets for 2013 is not a wish list, but rather my pick from what I’ve managed to get my hands on this year.

It’s not like I celebrate Christmas and that anyone will be looking for ideas on what to get me from here anyway πŸ˜‰

The following gadgets are ones that I reviewed this year, and yes, there are two tablets on this list. So far I managed to buy one of the products.

My Top 5 gadgets for 2013:

5. Samsung Galaxy Camera

I loved the Samsung Galaxy Camera because of its versatility. It makes the ideal travel companion, while taking excellent photos and being able to check your email, social networks on the go. All you need is WiFi!

4. Lenovo Yoga Tab 8

The Lenovo Yoga Tab 8 really surprised me with its design. It lets you work from a coffee shop or anywhere really without worrying about not having any company. You can spend hours on this tablet forgetting where you are because it’s so comfortable being propped up without needing any additional stand.

3. iPhone 5S

As my personal mobile operating system of choice, the iPhone really impressed me with its new Touch ID on the 5S to such an extent that I tried using the feature on my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini (yes, you have this in writing). Didn’t think I’d get used to it this quick. Also, the new camera is excellent.

2. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8

I fell in love with FujiFilm Instax Mini 8 just by looking at its pictures. Why wouldn’t you want an instant camera? When I got to review one earlier this year, I simply had to have one. It’s best saved for special occasions as film is quite pricey. Managed to buy one in Taiwan earlier this year.

1.Β Sony Xperia Tablet Z

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is the most beautifully designed tablet on the market. You have to hold it to appreciate how much effort when into every aspect about it. Also, it’s waterproof and has a very good battery life.

    The price of the lenovo yoga pad is pretty decent! For some reason I’m inclined to the MS surface tab though.

    • Yeah, it’s priced really well! Are you going to wait a bit before deciding?

      • Adhir Ramjiawan

        Yup, I want to find the right device for my needs. Don’t want to spend a lot and have to push it into a drawer.

        • Stick around for some reviews in 2014 (can’t reveal too much yet) then you can decide!
