It's obvious the Z Fold 3 has some hardware improvements that make it the most refined foldable available from Samsung. The technology company has done a fantastic job with optimisation of the software for the big display and foldable technology.
The Z Flip 3 feels great in the hand. This is an extremely capable smartphone, and at $1,000 is very competitive with other flagships. If you are looking to buy a new phone, the Z Flip 3 5G should definitely be on your list to consider.
The XR20 should be able to withstand knocks, splashes and drops, and is even supplied with a free screen replacement for a year after purchase. The cameras, performance and screen may be unremarkable, but the XR20 does offer 5G connectivity, four years of security updates and virtually no software bloat.
HP's Elite Folio is a quirky 2-in-1 with considerable appeal, headed up by its superb battery life. Windows on ARM might be a problem for some potential buyers, however, due to app compatibility issues.
HP's Elite Dragonfly G2 manages to provide a fully-featured and versatile 2-in-1 convertible, wrapped up in a lightweight and elegant design that few of its rivals can match. It's not cheap, but it will certainly earn its keep.
Lenovo's 14-inch Yoga 9i has a superb 4K screen and fantastic speakers that set a high bar high for other laptop makers. Build quality is solid, and there are plenty of configurations on offer.
The ports and connectors are the same as in 2020, and Huawei has not provided Thunderbolt support. The battery won't get you through a full day's use, although fast charging may come to the rescue. It would have been good to see Huawei try harder with its MateBook D 15 2021 refresh.
The OnePlus Watch at first seems to be a compelling option. But the inconsistent and limited software is frustrating, and the inability to customise the watch experience kills the excitement just a bit. The real killer is the terrible accuracy of the GPS exercise tracking.
The Fitbit Luxe is meant to appeal to a certain type of user who wants something that can look nice, but also keeps tabs on their health metrics. And it succeeds at doing just that. If you're looking for a Fitbit with a jewellery-like design, then the Luxe is worth a look.

The Naenka Runner Pro is a solid bone conduction headset. It is very comfortable for long-term wear and battery life is acceptable for at least a marathon. The price is reasonable given that it supports two modes of playback.
For £69.99 (inc. VAT) the Trust Taxon QHD Webcam brings 2K image resolution to its webcam, a sliding privacy cover, and versatile mounting options. The Trust Taxon QHD Webcam is basic, but it does the basics well enough.
Logitech's Scribe provides a usable way of bringing analogue whiteboards into the digital fold. It's hardly inexpensive at $/£1,199, but Scribe is a quality product that works well.
