Meet the Best of CES Las Vegas
Every year dozens of new products are launched at CES. The country’s biggest consumer electronics show features some 3,900 exhibitors spread out over 2.75 million square feet, making it the largest floor in the show’s history, according to the CTA. Today we are going to take a look at some of the best things we will see at this year’s event. Here below we’ve singled out the best of CES based on personal experiences, ranging from laptops to phone accessories.
Acer Swift 7
Dubbed the world's thinnest notebook, the Swift 7 measures just 0.39-inch thick and weighs 2.48 pounds. With a sturdy aluminum build, it avoids feeling flimsy, a pitfall that many light systems fail at, and it looks as nice as it feels. When the Swift 7 drew audible excitement and instant comparisons to a MacBook Air from our photographer, I knew Acer had succeeded with its design. It will arrive this spring at $1,699, packing an HD touch display, an Intel Core i7 processor, and 4G LTE connectivity.—Matthew Buzzi
Best Windows Tablet
With a starting price of $799, the Lenovo Miix 630 detachable tablet is on the less expensive end of a brand-new crop of PCs that run power-sipping Qualcomm Snapdragon processors originally designed for smartphones. It's got a 12.3-inch full HD touch screen that's fortified with Corning Gorilla Glass. There's a kickstand built into the back of the tablet to prop it up when the keyboard is attached, and the whole thing weighs just less than 3 pounds. The big draw here: Lenovo claims the Miix 630 will last up to 20 hours between battery charges. Even better, that estimate assumes you'll use it as you would a smartphone: rarely turning it off and accessing the internet both via Wi-Fi and the included LTE modem. Depending on the cost of wireless service plans and whether or not that battery claims ring true, this Windows tablet has the potential to be a road warrior's best friend when it goes on sale this spring.—Tom Brant
Honor's View 10 sets the bar for value. Huawei's low-cost spin off brand is bringing a 6-inch phone with tons of RAM and storage, an AI-enhanced camera, and a flagship-level Kirin 970 processor to the US for less than $500—that undercuts the OnePlus 5T by at least $30, and it's about half the price of Huawei's own Mate 10 Pro. Honor has sold great $200 phones in the US for a few years now, and this device pushes its market up to people who aren't looking to make compromises.—Sascha Segan
Best Phone Accessory
DJI Osmo Mobile 2
The Osmo Mobile 2 is our pick for the best camera gear of CES, even though it doesn't have a lens or sensor. The handheld gimbal, priced at just $129, works with Android and iOS phones. It keeps handheld video silky smooth, and can be mounted on a tripod, and has an app that adds time-lapse and other capabilities to your phone's camera. It's less expensive than its predecessor, and has three times the battery life—15 hours.—JF
Speaking of the best accessory of phone, it’s worth to notice that portable charger now also becomes an indispensable accessory for phone. The 2019 CES is on the corner and one of the competitive manufacturers--Zendure will present, in which Zendure will showcase some of its newest innovations during CES 2019 with an immersive exhibition at The Venetian Resort.

Now let’s see the demos first.
