1. BEST SMARTPHONE – IPHONE X
It’s what Apple is so good at. It’s why the iPhone X is the best phone, just ahead of Samsung’s devices and – sorry Google – streets ahead of the Pixel 2 (although it has a pretty decent camera), and why it’s one the of best gadgets you can own.
2. BEST HOME AUDIO – NAIM MU-SO
“Unsurprisingly, given the heritage behind the Naim brand, the sound quality is superb. The resolution on more delicate tracks is a beautiful thing, while there’s enough power to blast through anything more challenging with aplomb. Naim specs say the Mu-so sports no less than six 75 watt digital amplifiers, one for each of the six custom-designed speaker drivers, delivering a total of 450 watts of power, and it certainly sounds like that’s true. Overall, it’s a stunning object in it’s own right, and as an audio tool it’s brilliant.
3. BEST TABLET – IPAD PRO 10.5
Items on the screen generally stay the same size as they were on the 9.7-inch model, but you have more space to play with, and it allows for bonuses such as the on-screen keyboard (and attachable Smart Keyboard) being just about full-size, which does help for typing speed. The size difference is subtle overall, but it’s instantly obvious if you work in Split View a lot.
