2 Laptops, 2 Projectors, Small Appliance, 2 TVs, 3 Robot Vacuums, darn Smart Bed, 3 SmartPhones, PCs, Cams and many more good Gadgets.
Reduced. CES 2022 was still held – despite some big names pulling out of the show – due to the surge of Omicron cases across the country. There was no shortage of announcements from tech’s biggest show of the year. While most of the attention is typically reserved for the brands we’re all familiar with, there were several surprises from other brands you may not know too much about.
The Best. That’s why we’ve picked this list that breaks down all of the best tech gadgets announced during CES. They cover a broad range of product categories, but we’ve highlighted why they should be on your radar — plus, why we’re excited about them. We’ll continue to update our roundup accordingly so that you know all the coolest tech gadgets we’re most excited about.
Examples. We saw some interesting things around (ie, how devices offer more functionality beyond their main purpose). Take for example Samsung’s snazzy Video projector – which not only features an unconventional design for a projector, but Samsung thoughtfully took the time to design it in a way that it functions also as a Bluetooth speaker, smart speaker, & smart light. This trend of convergence even permeated into categories such as computing, where a foldable laptop could quickly transform into a desktop when it’s unfolded. And lastly, we saw robot Vacuums that not only clean up after us, but can clean themselves when they’re done.
Virus Challenge affected CES 2022, but some companies didn’t disappoint us – with innovative devices – that outdid everything that was shown off last year.
Samsung Eco Remote Control
Why we’re excited about it: The most innovative gadget out of CES isn’t something you can buy on its own, but rather, it’s something that will be included with Samsung’s line of smart TVs coming out this year. The Samsung Eco Remote Control might look similar to previous iterations, such as its ability to charge its battery courtesy of the solar panel on it. However, we feel it’s undisputedly the biggest surprise of CES 2022 because of its ability to preserve its charge by harnessing the energy from Wi-Fi radio waves. Who would’ve thought that a TV remote would be the biggest surprise, but given how it’ll effectively prevent more batteries from being wasted and filling up in landfills, it’s worthy of earning our most innovative award. Release: Available now, Price: included w/ TV
Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED UX9702
Why we’re excited about it: In a sea of drool-worthy gadgets, this Asus Zenbook stands tall at the top of the pedestal for how it’s popularizing the foldable design with computing. Best of all, this foldable hybrid laptop is expected to launch this year. What’s remarkable is the numerous ways this foldable laptop can be used, both on the go & at home. When you’re on the road, its slim chassis and foldable design can be used to act very much like a standard laptop — especially with the attachable wireless keyboard that comes with it. When unfolded, it sparks intrigue with its 17.3-inch 2,560 x 1,920 OLED display.
Productivity: You’ll be able to neatly arrange multiple windows in its spacious 17.3-inch display courtesy of the ScreenXpert app. There’s also a kickstand on the back that allows the Zenbook to stand on its own when fully unfolded — giving you that desktop-like experience anywhere and any time. Under the hood, it can be configured with up to a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 U Series processor with Iris Xe graphics, so you’ll be assured that it’s capable of handling just about anything you throw at it. We can go on and on about why we love it so much, but it’s one of those devices that can change computing. Release date: 2Q22 $$$: TBD
Why we’re excited about it: Samsung has been building up quite a buzz at CES 2022 with its neato Freestyle, a portable Projector unlike any other. That’s because it’s also a smart speaker, smart light, & the perfect companion to your smartphone. With its compact & swiveling design, you can actually lay flat down on a bed and enjoy watching content on the ceiling. And since it has a speaker as well, you can use voice commands to play your all of your favorite tunes — or use other add-ons to make it a mood light and project cool designs onto walls. There’s also an attachment that lets you screw it into a light socket for some unique projections you wouldn’t think about doing in the first place. Release: Available for pre-order now – $899
Black + Decker Bev (not Beverly)
BEST SMALL APPLIANCE
Why we’re excited about it: You wouldn’t expect Black + Decker to come out with a Cocktail maker for the home, but at CES 2022, the company announced its ‘Bev’ connected home bar. It’s a Keurig-style countertop bar that allows you to use your favorite liquor (in their bottles too) to whip up craft cocktails with pods filled with all the juices and liquids you’ll need. Making a refreshing drink at home couldn’t be easier. Release date: Spring 2022, Price: $299
Dell XPS 13 Plus
Why we’re excited about it: Back with a new minimalist design that’s sure to turn heads, the Dell XPS 13 Plus is a standout Laptop during CES 2022 – now that it’s now sporting a capacitive touch bar, edge-to-edge keyboard, & a touchpad that has no discernible outline. All of this makes the Dell XP3 13 Plus a fashionable laptop like no other around, including a 4K OLED display and support for 28-watt Intel processors. It’s all packaged into a chassis that weighs only 2.7 pounds. Release: Spring 2022, Starting at $1,299
LG G2 OLED Evo (97-inch)
Why we’re excited about it: Go big or go home, right? LG’s making a huge impression on us at CES 2022 because of its ginormous 97-inch LG G2 Gallery Series, featuring a dreamy-looking OLED display. In fact, it’s the company’s largest sized OLED TV to date. Sure, the sheer size is overwhelming and one of its biggest draws, but the LG G2 OLED Evo is all about being bright too. There’s no word on pricing yet, but you can find it in other sizes as well — 55, 65, 77, and 83 inches, to be exact. Release date: TBD, Price: TBD
Samsung Odyssey Ark
BEST GAMING MONITOR
Why we’re excited about it: Curved monitors aren’t new, but Samsung is taking it to a new level with the 55-inch Samsung Odyssey Ark. Yes, the size alone is sure to get attention, as well as its curvature, but you can actually pivot the Odyssey Ark so that it can be used vertically. This makes for some interesting experiences, especially when it comes to productivity and running different software all at one. There’s no price yet for this monstrous-sized curved monitor, but it’s expected to be released some time in the second half of 2022. Release date: Q2 2022, Price: TBD
Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra
BEST ROBOT VACUUM
Why we’re excited about it: The robot vacuum with sonic mopping technology is back, beefier than last year’s model with the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra. This 2-in-1 robot Vacuum combo is notable for the new self-empty dock that not only empties the bot’s dustbin of debris but it scrubs down its mopping pads as well. Throw in enhanced obstacle avoidance detection; the Roborock S7 MaxV is undoubtedly shaping up to be a strong contender. Release date: Q2 2022, Price: $1,399.99

The new Sleep Number 360 smart bed, pegged for a 2023 release, will be the company’s most ambitious, because it’ll be able to monitor and detect nighttime events — such as insomnia, sleep apnea, temp monitoring, and more. That’s on top of the other biometrics its smart beds already track, like heart and breath rates. Detailed analysis of your sleep could be beneficial to potentially uncover health problems. Release date: ??? 2022, Price: $1,099
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE
Why we’re excited about it: This ‘fan edition’ has all the ingredients to make it one of the year’s first phones to know about.

There’s a huge emphasis on content creation with this one, complete with a triple camera system on the back to cover all the range — including a 32-megapixel front-facing camera. It even has the ability to record from the front and rear cameras simultaneously, perfect for those times when you want to be on-screen while showing something off. Release date: Jan, 2022, Price: $699
Targus UV-C LED Disinfection Light
BEST DESKTOP ACCESSORY
Why we’re excited about it: There are hidden microbes on your keyboard, which is why the Targus UV-C LED Disinfection Light exists to eliminate them.

If you’re going to be working in the office again, this is something that will ease your mind about the germs you may be exposed to while working. Release: Available now, Price: $299.99
TCL 30 V 5G
BEST MID-RANGE SMARTPHONE
Why we’re excited about it: Looking for something a bit more budget-friendly? Even though it’s not official, the TCL 30 V 5G is expected to come in at under $500 when released as early as February. While the specs place it square in the mid-range category, boasting a 6.67-inch Full HD Plus display, 4GB of RAM, 4,500 mAh battery, 5G connectivity, and 128GB of storage, it’s clearly making an impression with the 50-megapixel camera it’s sporting in the rear. Release: Feb 2022, Price: about $500
TCL 30 XE 5G
BEST AFFORDABLE SMARTPHONE
Why we’re excited about it: Meanwhile, there’s the TCL 30 XE 5G, which will probably cost even less based on its specs. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 chip with 5G connectivity, 6.52-inch Full HD Plus, 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 4,500 mAh battery. What makes this one special is that it’s still rocking a gorgeous design with its edge-to-edge display. Release date: TBD, Price: TBD
EcoVacs Deebot X1 Omni
BEST MOPPING ROBOT
Why we’re excited about it: Omni takes autonomous operation to the next level for robot vacuums. That’s because it features a car wash style dock that not only empties the robot vacuum’s dust bin and refills its water reservoir for mopping, but it’ll clean the mopping pads as well to ensure they’re clean before each use. It also features its own digital assistant so that you can command it directly. Release date: March 2022, Price: $1,549
Samsung The Frame with Neo QLED
BEST QLED TV
Why we’re excited about it: Today’s smart TVs are worthy enough to be standalone works of art, but no other TV looks better wall mounted than the Samsung The Frame. This year’s incarnation earned a substantial upgrade just in time for CES 2022, featuring a new anti-glare, matte display that gives it a more realistic picture frame look to reduce glares. Available in various sizes from 32-inches to 85-inches, the picture quality remains a focal point to give it the illusion you’re looking at artwork when you’re not watching television. Release date: TBD, Price: TBD
Eufy Security Garage-Control Cam
BEST SECURITY CAMERA
Why we’re excited about it: Garage cameras are increasingly becoming popular, but if you’re itching for one soon, then consider the upcoming Eufy Security Garage-Control Cam — an all-in-one garage controller used to not only open or close your garage remotely, but also see in real time what’s going on with its camera. Available in either 1080p and 2K resolutions, it’s smart enough to send notifications whenever it senses people or vehicles. There’s no subscription required either, since it offers local storage. Release: March 2022, Price: starting at $99
Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 3
BEST PRODUCTIVITY LAPTOP
Why we’re excited about it: Lenovo’s known for some interesting laptops, but the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 3 stands out for the 8-inch touch-screen that’s built right into the laptop — right next to the keyboard. At first glance, you may think it’s an odd placement, but it’s meant to offer a complementary experience by keeping its main display free from other distractions. Essentially, the secondary touchscreen will offer multi-tasking functions, smartphone mirroring, and much more. Release: May 2022, Price: starting at $1,399
