Share this story

IFA is the European version of CES, and we're here to catch the latest from Samsung, Sony, and so many more. The big headline grabbers in 2014 are wearables, with the introduction of the Gear S, the G Watch R, and the SmartWatch 3 — though a number of major smartphones have also seen upgrades and revisions. Premium materials are also becoming more commonly used, as sapphire screens and ceramic backs start to mingle with the conventional plastic and glass combinations. Mobile computing remains the dominant topic of conversation, and the larger-sized devices are also being upgraded with new laptops and Chromebooks from the likes of Toshiba and Lenovo.
