1. BEST SMARTPHONE – IPHONE X

 Is the iPhone X the best phone in the world? Yes. But only by a whisker. The Galaxy Note 8 is so close, while Apple’s own iPhone 8 Plus gives you so much of the iPhone X benefit without such super expense. In the end though, it’s the seamless marriage of software and hardware that’s so effective in the iPhone X, and that’s especially the case when it comes to Face ID, which is just super.

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

 When undertaking an ears-on review with this stunning piece of audio tech, T3’s own resident audiophile Duncan Bell said:

“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

 Apple has improved things in three key areas from the 9.7-inch iPad Pro this replaces – our previous king of tablets – the amount of space to work, the quality of the display, and the performance.The move to a 10.5-inch screen with a higher resolution of 2224 x 1668 adds around 20% more area, while keeping the same sharp pixel density (and barely any extra size to the chassis, thanks to the new design).

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.
