The AbsoluTe besT of IfA 2016
Ahem! You may have noticed that almost all my predictions on what may be announced at IFA were absolutely correct. You may also have noticed that I am not one to dwell on such terrific achievements and thump my chest. Just a “wow, that was awesome” from all of you will suffice :)
Taking things forward, IFA Berlin this year was outstanding. And as proof, here’s a very quick look at what was the absolute best on the massive show floor.
Featuring some of the most eye-catching products at the just-concluded show in Berlin
Desktops are ugly and boring g. Not anymore! This one’s mor re art than PC. Comes with a fabric-wrapped design and a built-in 360-degree Bang & Olufsen speaker.
THE VICTORY DIAL
Sonny rebooted and reinvented its smartphone lineup andd came up with the unfortunatelyy named XZ. But it’s a great looking phone with a 23MP camera sensorr, 5-axis stabilisation, plus it’s totally waterproof.w
BAND OF INFO
This seems to do what other bands can do, until you press the silver button. Kaboom! A full body analysis appears with muscle and fat percentages. The jury is still out on accuracy but the feature is impressive.
The world’s thinnest notebook is a looker. A stunning metal unibody shell, serious power in its svelte body, 8GB of RAM, and a 13.3-inch display. All of it in less than 1 cm!
Improving on the Yoga 900, this one is more powerful, more classy and still has that amazingly roomy keyboard. Not to mention it comes with a 4K screen and is 15mm thin.
A GAAMER’S DELIGHT
A beaast that can chew up any gamiing desktop in both looks and perfoormance. A 21-inch curved screeen, screaming hardware and a built in eye- tracking system. This devicce looks more like a monster charaacter in a game than just a game-playing machine.
Holding this is a surreal experience as it’s a full 15-inch laptop with seriously powerful hardware, no compromise on the inside out and still weighs in at about 900 grams.
Adding to its already long list of features, the Charge 2 gets a bigger screen, good looks, a heart rate sensor, a stress beating breathing module as well as VO2 max rating.
STYLISH WAY TO FITNESS
A stunning circular-shaped smartwatch with Gorilla Glass, 4GB of storage, HyperCharge wireless charging and some serious battery life. Asus wins the smartwatch war, but maybe just for a few seconds.
