The clock is ticking. Soon stands Christmas in front of the door. So it is high time to get the presents. And when it comes to technology gifts, all the better. Then you are exactly right here. We have the 5 best Technology gifts collected for you for Christmas.
# 1: The classic among technology gifts: smartphones
One of the things we use every day is smartphones. And not just to communicate. Our cell phones have to be able to do much more than that: They help us in every situation in life. Topics and content can be looked up on-the-go from anywhere. So who wouldn’t be happy about a new smartphone with more functions?
The most popular new releases this year are the Samsung Galaxy S21 or the iPhone 13. However, you should note the following before buying the devices: The Samsung Galaxy S21 is available for a great deal from O2. So if you want to save some money, buy the smartphone under contract.
You should also note that the iPhone 13 is in short supply. That’s not just because it’s very popular. The main reason for this is that Apple had a major production disruption this year.
But that doesn’t mean that there is no chance of getting this great technology gift. Apple has published an order list that states by when you should have ordered the iPhone so that it arrives on time for the festival. And as usual, you can look back on Apple’s website for the order times, the delivery service and the pick-up station.
# 2: A huge gift: television
What could be nicer at Christmas than sitting comfortably on the couch, watching a good Christmas movie and drinking hot chocolate. With a large TV with high picture quality, this is of course all the more fun.
Are you looking for a tech gift that would make someone happy this year? Then a new television is just the right gift. The only question is, of course, which one.
Stiftung Warentest has chosen two LG televisions and one of the latest Samsung televisions as the best televisions in 2021. They received these awards especially because of their high image resolution.
# 3: The intelligent, personal assistant
