Top Tech from 2017


Samsung Galaxy S8

There were several high profile smartphone releases this year – including the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 plus, iPhone X and Google Pixel 2. However, one of our favourites was the Samsung Galaxy S8. With its infinity display, wireless charging, great memory options and impressive HDR-enabled screen, it’s no wonder the S8 was really popular amongst our customers!

Apple Watch

The launch of the third generation of its celebrated Apple watch was received with a great deal of enthusiasm from fans. The Apple Watch 3 boasts up to 18 hours of battery life and is cellular, meaning it can be used to make calls, send messages and stream music even when not connected to a smartphone.

Amazon Echo 2nd Generation

Only last month we saw the release of the 2nd generation Amazon Echo and Echo Plus. The second generation Echo is smaller and cheaper than the original version, although has fewer features than its new big sister, the Echo Plus. For all the features of the original Echo, including a few new ones to boot, the Plus model is for you.

Google Home Smart Speaker

Google have also ventured into the smart home speaker this year with the launch of the Google Home. Not only can you ask Google questions, manage everyday tasks such as setting timers and alarms, and enjoy your music, the Google Home also allows you to control smart devices throughout your home when these are linked up.

iPad 2017

2017 really was a good year for Apple fans. Replacing the iPad Air 2, newest release of the iPad actually comes in cheaper. Considering its upgraded features, including 9.7-inch display and punchy A9 power, along with Apple’s trademark easy to use operating system and sleek design, this new release of the classic is a great value option.

Dell XPS 13 (2017)

The laptop market can be a bit of a minefield. When choosing a new one, you can narrow down your selection by what you plan to use it for – be that gaming, streaming videos, word processing or business use. Even then, there are likely to be several contenders. When looking for a good all-rounder, one model experts agree ticks several boxes is the Dell XPS 13. With a long-lasting battery, yet still providing impressive specs on speed and power, this model is the new flagship in Dell’s range. Included amongst its many features is an ‘Infinity Edge’ display, which along with its ultra slim proportions, make this laptop a joy to both look at and use.
