We’ve found the cool tech products you need so you can get your life in gear this year. These are the latest and greatest picks if you want to be on the cutting edge of tech — and we did all the research for you.
From the all-new Samsung Galaxy S10 family packed with cutting-edge tech, to the budget-friendly Galaxy A6, we rounded up our top Samsung smartphone picks. The 10th installment of the iconic Samsung Galaxy S product line includes three members: the big-screen Galaxy S10+, the Galaxy S10, and the impressively compact Galaxy S10e.
The hot new smartphones were introduced alongside a groundbreaking new device — the Samsung Galaxy Fold. As its name suggests, it can easily transform from a smartphone to a tablet. It’s due to launch in late April with a considerable price tag.
The trio of Galaxy S10 smartphones feature bold new design language and class-leading hardware specs. They are available in a multitude of color options, including black, white, blue, and pink. The range-topping Samsung Galaxy S10+ with 1 TB of storage is also available in black or white with a decidedly premium ceramic finish.

Every Galaxy S and Galaxy Note device comes bundled with an excellent pair of wired earbuds, tuned by AKG.
Note: Before purchasing an unlocked smartphone, check carefully if it’s fully compatible with your preferred carrier. Samsung’s unlocked Galaxy S and Galaxy Note offerings are compatible with all major carriers in the United States.
The prices of most smartphones on this list are for unlocked, contract-free devices. You can opt to purchase any phone on small monthly installments either from Samsung or through the wireless carrier of your choice.
The PowerPort Atom PD 1 USB-C charger by Anker is an extraordinary gadget that’s a must-have for on-the-go personalities. It’s incredibly tiny (about the size of an iPhone power adapter), yet capable of rapidly charging any gadget you own, including a laptop.
In order to make the accessory small, yet capable, Anker used a material called gallium nitride instead of silicone. The manufacturer backs its creation with a robust 18-month warranty.

The gaming performance of the HP Omen is excellent, especially for its price range. The device’s NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 GPU can easily power through today’s AAA gaming titles in full HD resolution at high settings. The notebook’s display panel has a speedy refresh rate, which, combined with NVIDIA G-Sync support, ensures that the gaming graphics are incredibly smooth.

The latest MSI GS65 Stealth gaming laptop sets a new standard for performance and portability. It’s mind-bogglingly thin (less than 0.7 inches) and incredibly light.
With a pleasantly restrained design and ultra thin, sub-5 millimeter screen bezels, it actually looks like a full-size ultrabook, not a highly capable gaming rig.
The notebook has up to 8 hours of battery life and a reasonably sized charger. Overall, it is perfectly suited for daily use that goes beyond gaming.

Available with an 11- and a 12.9-inch display, the all-new, incredibly elegant Apple iPad Pro is the best tablet available today by an overwhelming margin.

Like the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, the latest iPad Pro features Face ID tech instead of a button with a fingerprint sensor. To top things off, the tablet comes with Apple iOS — the most secure platform with the best selection of apps in the business.
This high-end speaker by Bose is powered by Alexa, and it sounds better than any Amazon Echo product.
