Whats up mkbhd here were in that wrapping up 2021 phase, as you already know, did that first rewind video, which was all about the biggest most influential tech of all of 2021 and videos like that – are way more varied and off the wall. Just because theres a lot of different tech that has an impact on the year, but not all that stuff is relatable or stuff that you can get your hands on right now. So this video, this video is specifically for stuff that you can get right now. This is for this is the top 10 gadgets that you can actually get your hands on that came out in the last 365 days and with partnering with best buy on this video. You already guessed it every single one of the items on this list. You can go to a store right now or go to bestbuy.com and pick up for yourself, but also the benefit of best buy. Having physical stores is, you can actually go to a store and see some of these things in person for yourself which a little underrated. So ive had the opportunity to stay ahead of the curve with a lot of this tech this year from best buy and uh yeah, getting to see some of it in person before you buy. It makes a big difference. Youll see what i mean in a second. So sit back, relax, maybe open another tab because all this stuff is linked down below.

If you want to check it out right away and lets get into it so number 10 number 10 is the beats fit pro okay. So these came out during the second half of the year pretty late, and i didnt even get to review them, but they are. My favorite beats headphones ever for a couple of reasons. One theyre the best sounding beats ever by a lot but two, its the design that actually stays locked in your ear, so wing tips major key and so because of the great sound and great fit. These pretty much instantly became my favorite workout headphones. So if youre in need of a pair like that id say, look no further uh. They also have a decently small case and a solid battery life and, of course, theyre sweat resistant for that workout stuff. And if you can, you can go to a best, buy and see the different colors in person. Plus you can check out pretty much any other headphones. They have it all. So that can help you pick your favorite. So number nine is the samsung galaxy z fold. Three, so i was kind of torn between putting this or the flip 3 on this list. But the point is there are some of the most interesting phones that came out this year. Yes, of course, we got the candy bar phones getting better and having bigger batteries and better cameras and all thats great, but these phones do a lot different, obviously, the hidden selfie camera behind the display folding in half and theyre, just more complete and capable than ever So the flip 3 just made the whole folding phone as a daily driver thing way more attainable for many people, with the price tag right in line with other phones.

People buy all the time its worth checking out in person in a store. If you can just to see how much that crease may or may not bother you or whether or not you even notice it or care about it, but pro tip when youre actually using these phones, both the crease and the hidden selfie camera, i noticed really kind Of disappear to the eye, as you focus on the actual content on the phone, so you get a much bigger screen as a result, either way really looking forward to these continuing to get better all right, so number eight and i could have gone kind of anywhere With this, because this was a really good year for cameras, but im gon na go with the sony alpha one one of their flagships. This is an expensive one, but it did a lot of things right and i really like this camera. So this is a full frame: mirrorless camera, its stuffed to the gills with features high resolution, high frame rate, high shutter, speed, lots of auto focus points, great color, science and thats just for photos. Sonys also been crushing the mirrorless video game for the past few years. At a bunch of different price brackets and this one slots in basically right at the top of their lineup, its so good. I honestly look forward to shooting videos with it. Weve shot videos, including the setup tour on the studio channel with it, and also the tesla model y review on the main channel, which was shot entirely on the a1.

With that full frame sensor weve got plenty of glass for it. The autofocus was great. It was just a great year for cameras, so its hard to pick just one, but the a1 was a beast all right, so number, seven, the galaxy s21 ultra from samsung again, so this may seem like okay. Now this is a little bit more of a boring option compared to the fold and the flip that were here before, but the fold and the flip made this list for me because theyre influential and really interesting phones. This makes the list just because its their best phone and honestly, i think its one of the best phones samsung, has made in a long time miles better than the s20 ultra. Of course, huge improvement, great battery world class display great performance and really great cameras and honestly, i really like this design, not just because its matte black, of course, but the whole thing, the intentional leaning into the camera bump the weight, the materials everything about this build. I really like now its also a huge phone. So if youre, trying to actually get one id say check it out in person just to make sure its not dramatically different from what youre expecting but yeah huge thumbs up for me on what often doesnt get talked about enough this early in the year flagship. So number six i am giving to the nintendo switch oled, the new one, they kind of nailed it.

So obviously the original switch was very popular. Just as a portable handheld gaming console and weve seen some others now jump into this same form factor the same space, but the switch oled is just an all around better version of the switch. We already knew and loved much smaller bezels, better display, of course, its in the name, deeper blacks and a much brighter punchier, look to it and its much better with that full width kickstand. So its kind of the ideal refresh and ive had plenty of fun flights with the original switch, so cant really go wrong with the new switch here. Switch oled is great all right number five, this one might be kind of out of left field, but i believe in it a lot apples, air tags. So this is one of the most influential products of the entire year, mainly because it shined a huge spotlight on this industry and we got to see how all of the competitors already in it would react mainly tile. We got to see how tail would react. I am somehow always surprised by how many people suddenly have intense and deep thoughts and care a lot about a product category as soon as apple enters it, even if it was pretty chill before. But the apple effect is real and they have pulled a lot of other companies into their orbit too. So not only can you find your keys anytime, you lose them with a key chain for air tags, but now other companies are making air tags compatible, wallets and air tags, backpack, sleeves and air tags clamps for anything and everything you might lose of any size to Find with apples find my network its great its very handy and was a pretty important product of the year and while were at it number four, the iphone 13 series.

But if i can be more specific, i want to shine a spotlight on the iphone 13 mini for a second, so tiny flagships are a dying breed. They have been for a while weve known this already and so apple comes out with their entire iphone 13 lineup. Again this year, theyve got an iphone 13, an iphone 13 pro a pro max and a mini, and they did the mini phone right. They did it the correct way, which is that all of the phones in the whole lineup more or less, have the same specs. So the only difference between them is screen size and battery size, so the iphone 13 mini has the exact same super powerful chip as all the bigger phones. It has the same massive new primary camera sensor as all the bigger phones with improved stabilization, and it actually has a physically larger battery than the 12 mini, which struggled a bit with that last year. So if there were ever a good time to get a mini phone, i think its now considering all the rumors that there might not be another one next year and of course, you can head into best, buy and check out the minis size. For yourself, you can literally hold it up next to your current phone for comparison to see how compact it really is, but shout out to the mini flagship, smartphone, all right so number three. This is a really fun one. This is the dji fpv drone.

This thing is incredible, so, as i broke down in my review, video, this thing is basically combining all the best of two very different drone worlds, which is the cinematography tools and recreational drones that dji already kind of dominates, and the diy first person view racing drones That you might catch on tv or in a local park sometimes and the result combining them is this incredibly fun. High performance, droning experience with a decently high quality camera and a pair of goggles wirelessly connected ive literally never had more fun with a drone than with this one. It can go 90 plus miles an hour in sport mode, but you sort of slowly work. Your way up to that and you can unlock more and more levels of manual control to get there and dont worry. It comes with a bunch of extra propellers too. In case you get too close to some trees or take a tumble or two ive done that too weve all done it, but i love this drone. All right. So number two is googles, pixel 6 series and mainly the smaller, less expensive, pixel six, which i think is a great phone and a great deal. So this was googles first time designing the chip inside so theres a tensor chip powering this phone theyre clearly focused a lot still on the cameras, which are quite good too, especially on a phone of this price, and i think it has some room for a little Higher ceiling with some software updates, but really this phone is all about.

Having the most convenient google features, google assistant answering phone calls and waiting on hold for you and working on the background, its great its one of the reasons i choose to use a pixel. So often as my main phone all that phone for 5.99 in the pixel 6. now i do personally daily the more expensive 6 pro, not a whole ton of difference really between them. But if you want to test your eye to see if you notice the slightly higher refresh rate or the slightly higher resolution, display thats worth a shot. So then, last but not least, number one is the new macbook pros, the new m1 pro and m1 pro max 14 inch and 16 inch macbook pros. These things have been incredible now same deal. There have been a lot of really good laptops all over the map. This year, but these made the biggest splash, of course, because of the incredible performance and efficiency, all that comes with the new apple silicon that went into these machines and the way it applied specifically to my own workflow, i loved it. These have been great, so you can check out my entire review video if you want all the benchmarks and details of my real world experiences with these laptops, but bottom line. It makes a fantastic, only computer for a lot of different creatives professionals, etc. Ive edited videos on the 16 inch m1 max. A lot of my colleagues and friends are loving the 14 inch m1 pro just as much.

The notch is kind of like a kind of like the crease in the samsung folding phones like when youre actually using the device it fades away to the eye and becomes a non factor, even if it is a head scratcher. Why its there in the first place, but the displays themselves, are world class with high dynamic range, high, brightness, high refresh rate and high resolution. The speakers are best in class. The battery life is top of the class and it has all the ports. I mean what more could you really ask for so there you have it 10 gadgets that came out during the last 365 days that are really influential or really good turns out. It was a pretty good year. After all, also, i want to toss in because i was doing my research for this video and i realized it. Didnt come out this year, but the quest 2, the vr headset, if youre in the market for one its still honestly still the best like portable vr experience, standalone that you can get right now, so im going to just toss that in there also didnt come out. This year, but sonys wh 1000xm4 noise canceling headphones. If you dont have or havent tried one of the over ear pairs from sony, yet really good. So im just going to include those at the end, but thats a little extra and thanks again to best buy for partnering on this video. You already know they have all the best tech available all year round, so whether its actually going into a best buy store to check out something physically in person for yourself or just going to buy what you already know you want from bestbuy.
