The holidays are around the corner, and pretty much everyone is caught up in the Christmas shopping fever. We all want to offer our loved ones joyful and useful presents. To help, we’ve teamed up with Samsung to bring you a shopping guide based on our 2022 hands-on experiences. Check out our gift recommendations for the important people in your life:
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G: A capable mid-ranger
My first suggestion is the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G - a sturdy mid-ranger with protection against dust and water. This smartphone has a rather classic design and is relatively large in size. Its 6.4-inch AMOLED screen looks great, has a 120Hz refresh rate, and is HDR+ compatible. Its hardware is also very powerful and can run anything you want, offering excellent performance, including in the latest Android games. Furthermore, the camera system is very capable and the phone can make a great gift for many people, from teenagers to adults or seniors who need a smartphone with a large, high-visibility screen.
If you’re interested in the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G, you can also find it on Amazon.
Samsung Galaxy S22: Want a small, powerful smartphone?
In a crowded market overrun by big, heavy smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S22 stands out for its small size, its weight of just 168 grams, and the quality of its materials.
The first time I used it, I really liked the feel of it and how fast it was, no matter what I was doing. This phone feels velvety and smooth, and its performance is worthy of a premium device. Moreover, its camera system is comparable to that of larger, more expensive models (Galaxy S22 Plus and Ultra), though it lacks a macro shooting mode. For me personally, the Samsung Galaxy S22 5G is one of the best phones of 2022. If you like it too, you can find it on Amazon, here.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S8: The standard for Android tablets
Although we thoroughly tested the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, a unique tablet both in price and size, we also had the opportunity to tinker with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 in various contexts. It’s a more balanced tablet, primarily in terms of price. Furthermore, it also offers pretty much all of its big sister’s assets: a gorgeous screen, excellent battery life, a very capable camera system, superior sound quality, and S Pen compatibility.
Moreover, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 can also replace your laptop, thanks to Samsung Dex. If you like it too, you can gift it to a loved one after buying it from Amazon.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 5: An almost perfect smartwatch!
The Samsung Galaxy Watch5 is one of the gadgets I liked the most during my time testing it. It’s a modern smartwatch with a sleek design, made from durable materials. You can customize it very easily to match the way you dress, as well as your personality.
If you’re looking for a companion to help you lead an active and healthy life, the Samsung Galaxy Watch5 is one of the best choices you can make. For more details about it, read 6 reasons to choose a Samsung Galaxy Watch5. This holiday season, you can find it in many stores, including on Amazon.
Samsung Galaxy Buds2 Pro: Possibly the best wireless headphones of the year
Throughout this year, both I and the rest of the Digital Citizen team have tested a lot of gadgets. High up on my favorites list is the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro - a pair of wireless earbuds that offer a high-quality audio experience. They’re smaller and easier to wear than their predecessors, they look great, and are seamlessly integrated into the Samsung ecosystem.
If you already own a Samsung smartphone or tablet, these earbuds make the perfect companion, giving you plenty of reasons to buy them. I really hope Santa is reading this, and he’ll be kind enough to put them under my tree. 🙂 And to help him, I should mention that they’re also available on Amazon, here.
Samsung The Freestyle: Take the movie theater with you, anywhere
One of the things I love most about the winter holidays is that we usually spend them with our family or closest friends. And more often than not, we get the urge to watch a movie together (should it be Home Alone this year, again?), even if we’re traveling to a new place where it’s kind of hard to have a cinematic experience. Well, precisely on these occasions is where Samsung’s The Freestyle is the perfect companion - a hybrid between a projector, a smart speaker, and a Smart TV that can project your favorite movies in Full HD resolution on almost any surface.
It’s easy to take it with you even to the top of the mountain when you go skiing or snowboarding with friends, and in the evenings, you can enjoy the latest Netflix series together. 🙂 If I got you curious and you want to buy it, you can also find it on Amazon.
Samsung JetBot+: Cleaning becomes child’s play
One of the best holiday deals is the Samsung JetBot+ robot vacuum cleaner. It has high suction power and a LiDAR sensor, which accurately detects the vacuum cleaner’s location and helps it optimize its cleaning path. It can be controlled remotely, so you can program it to clean while you’re out shopping or skiing and find everything spotless when you get home. Furthermore, it also has an automated dust collection station, which means that you’ll have to clean your Samsung JetBot+ only once every 3 months or so.
Doesn’t that sound great? This holiday season, you can find it on sale in many stores, including Amazon.
