Best of IFA 2013


Samsung Galaxy Gear, Sony Xperia Z1 and more from IFA 2013. Here’s our look at the best tech shown off at the Berlin tech showcase.

There are a few vital dates in the tech calendar, and only CES in Las Vegas and Apple launches rank much higher than the IFA tech show in Berlin. This year has seen Samsung and Sony duke it out as show winners, with both demonstrating new smartphones and smartwatches.

The key trends this year have been the continued popularity of large screen phones, the first serious steps in the much talked about ‘smartwatch’ segment and the continued growth of 4K TVs at ever decreasing prices.

There have been innovations, too. Sony surprised everyone with its clever lens camera range, full-featured camera lenses and sensors that clip onto phones to turn them into high-end cameras.

It wasn’t all Sony and Samsung, however. Hit ‘Next’ below to see all our highlights from the show.
