Tech companies like Apple, Samsung, Microsoft, and others are evenly finding new ways to improve their products, either with new hardware designs, software enhancements or even solely new products that we could not even imagine.
Regarding gadgets and appliances, 2017 was a year of many changes. And thinking about it, AIB created a list in which we elect the top 10 electronic devices this year that it’s almost over. Check it below.
1. Nintendo Switch!
Since the development of the first video game consoles, players had to choose between games in front of a TV or holding a tiny screen in hands. But things are not well with the Nintendo Switch, the first console that is designed for entertainment at home and on the street.
The switch consists of a tablet with a screen 6.2 inches with slots for attaching the controllers Joy-Con on each side, turning it into a mobile game console, when you are at home you can slide the tablet in a dock that fits into your TV and run it like a traditional console.
This approach of “playing anywhere and anytime,” combined with a list of fantastic games such as Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, makes Switch a real success in the gamer world.
2. Xbox One X!
If you are not convinced that the days of buying big and bulky consoles to get the best gaming performance ceased. I think the Xbox One X. The newest console from Microsoft includes incredible six teraflops and support games in native 4K, all within an elegant package.
All these attributes make the console of choice for players who want the performance and also want a lower price than a gamer PC high performance.
3. DJI Spark!
The DJI drone is a big step toward becoming the most accessible and most convenient drones for ordinary users. The appeal highlighted by the spark that it does not require a remote control for navigation. To control it, just touch the button on the back of the drone twice, and prepare it to get out of the palm of your hand.
Of course, the Spark does not always work perfectly, but its size and simplicity are significant differentials.
4. Amazon Echo!
Virtual assistants like Siri have been around for a few years, but they only began to stand out to the first Amazon Echo launched in 2014. Three years later, the successor of the original Amazon Echo improves the first release of many essential behaviors. The design is shorter and more attractive, the improved speaker includes a woofer and tweeter and, most importantly, is noticeably cheaper.
All these improvements should help keep Amazon at the top of the smart devices for voice-controlled market compared to rivals such as Google and Microsoft.
5. Apple iPhone X!
We know, it is costly. And yes, you probably will not get your hands on one soon. Still, the facial recognition system, iPhone X undoubtedly define a new standard for the phones. The system Face ID Apple is now being used more creatively than facial identification technology from third-party Samsung.
This, combined with a sharp camera, long battery life, and large screen, make the Apple iPhone a top choice X to any other in the smartphone market.
6. Microsoft Surface Laptop!
Between its light and elegant design, refined screen, and durable battery, Laptop Surface is a solid choice for those looking for a new windows computer.

7. Samsung Galaxy S8!

8. Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) Classic!
The SNES Classic comes loaded with 21 retro titles, including Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to Past, Donkey Kong Country and the original Star Fox 2.

9. Sony Alpha III A7R!
Owning notable improvements over its predecessor and a lower price than the Sony Alpha A9, the new Sony Alpha A7R III is one of the best mirrorless cameras that already made and with a very affordable price.
The device can shoot at twice the resolution of the A9 and an autofocus twice faster than A7R II, although the A9 offers a faster burst shooting. Still, the lowest price and the highest performance are probably more than enough to impress professional and novice photographers.
