THE BEST TECH FOR… get­ting things done

Australian T3 - - BEST TECH FOR EVERYTHING -

1 Sam­sung Gal­axy Note9

Sam­sung’s big­gest phone yet is ideal for work­ing on the go, be­cause it has a bunch of fea­tures that make the most of its 6.4-inch 2960x1440 AMOLED dis­play. The S Pen is now Blue­tooth-con­nected, with 4,096 lev­els of pres­sure de­tec­tion and a but­ton you can use to con­trol the phone. It’s also got clever split-screen con­trols, which let you pair apps to launch side-by-side, so it’s easy to bring up your cal­en­dar and email to­gether, for ex­am­ple. Plus, you can get it with 512GB of stor­age, and then at an­other 512GB SD card for a whop­ping 1TB. $1,579, sam­sung.com

2 Bey­erDy­namic Fox Pro­fes­sional USB Stu­dio Mi­cro­phone

This pro­fes­sional mi­cro­phone is the ideal choice for pod­cast­ers, gamers, YouTu­bers, con­tent cre­ators, mu­si­cians, singers, song­writ­ers and any­one else who re­lies on record­ing topqual­ity au­dio for a job or side project with­out any has­sle. With 24-bit and 96kHz sup­port, it de­liv­ers a high-res­o­lu­tion au­dio qual­ity that could com­pete with the re­sult you’d prob­a­bly get from a pro­fes­sional record­ing stu­dio. It comes with a USB ca­ble, but can also con­nect to smart­phone via an adapter. $229, bey­erdy­namic.com

3 Anker Pow­er­core II Slim

We all know there’s noth­ing quite as heart­break­ing as watch­ing your phone bat­tery slowly ebb away when you’ve for­got­ten your charger. Make sure that never hap­pens again with a por­ta­ble charger that can go with you ev­ery­where. We like the Pow­er­core II Slim from Anker be­cause it’s com­pact enough to fit in any bag, it’s high ca­pac­ity, promis­ing 3.5 whole charges for an iPhone 8, and it plays nice with a range of other de­vices. $93, anker.com

4 Mi­crosoft Sur­face Go

Mi­crosoft’s lat­est Sur­face is a tablet on the, uh, sur­face, but it’s got the full power of Win­dows un­der­neath, which makes it re­ally flex­i­ble for work­ing on the go. At 0.77kg, it’s the light­est Sur­face ever made, and with 8GB RAM and 256GB of stor­age it de­liv­ers great per­for­mance. It’s spe­cially de­signed for mo­bile work with a com­pact de­sign and touch­screen, but you can also con­nect it up to a Sur­face Dock and view your work from an ex­ter­nal mon­i­tor when you get back to the of­fice. From $599, mi­crosoft.com
