Xbox vs PlayStation gaming consoles

The Xbox One Series X and PlayStation 5 both have gained raw processing power and because of that can handle more graphic demands, have faster drives and therefore have an even better game experience then before.

When looking at the specs the Xbox has a little more power under the hood but when playing games this will not make much difference. Microsoft also announced a cheaper version of the new Xbox, the Xbox Series S. The Series S is cheaper but also smaller and much less powerful. Sony on the other hand has announced a “Digital edition” of the Playstation 5 that is identical but can not play disks.

Exclusive Content/ Games

Each brand has its own unique games to put forward: Xbox has for example Forza, Halo and Fable while Playstation 5 has Ratchet and Clank, Spiderman and Horizon. When you choose one gaming system, it will mean you loose out on the titles of the other.
To have an advantage on amount of high quality game titles Microsoft has recently purchased Zenimax which adds to the Xbox dozens of much loved games like Doom, The Elder Scrolls and Fallout. It is possible that new content for these titles will only be available for Xbox.

Best Smart Watches 2020 (November/December)

gaming pc

Nov/Dec 2020. Best Smart Watches 2020. When looking for a good Christmas gift look no further: a Smart Watch will be very much appreciated! We review and recommend Apple and Android smart watches like the Apple Smart Watch Series 5 and the Samsung Galaxy Smart watch. When you want to buy a new smart watch then you want to look at the battery life, recharge time, features, apps, compatibility with you current smartphone and if the smart watch is swimproof. Last but not least: it has to look good!

The best smart watch brands today are Apple and Samsung.

(Disclosure: all products/ads on this site are made available in association with our partners amazon.com and Google Adsense, see privacy policy )


What functions can you expect in a Smartwatch in 2020?

The latest smart watches have made a big step forward compared to their earlier versions. The cpu and speed/easiness to smoothly switch between functions and Bluetooth connection with the phone have improved. Also the apps and the screen quality are much better with Always-On Retina display/30% larger screen/sAMOLED display and more internal mem. Also the battery life has improved to up to 4 days with the Samsung Galaxy.

Apple vs Android smart watches

Most comparisons between the latest Apple and for example Samsung smart watches are overblown. Both are very good smart watches. The one you want to buy depends mostly on the smart phone you or the person you want to give the smart watch to as a gift has. When you have an Apple smartphone you have the choice between an Apple Smart watch or an Android/iOS smartwatch but it is normally good advise to stick with the brand smartphone you have to avoid compatibility problems. The Android smart watches are usually less expensive than the Apple smart watches.

Best Apple Smart Watch: Series 5 and Series 6

The best Apple smart watch is by far the new Series 5 Apple smart watch. It has the following features: GPS + Cellular, Always-On Retina display, 30% larger screen, it is Swim proof, it has an ECG app and electrical and optical heart sensors. Also handy are the built-in compass and elevation and the Emergency SOS/ International emergency calling. This is the latest Apple smartwatch. Apple has updated the specs greatly from the Series 4. The battery life is around 18 hours, which is shorter than the Samsung Galaxy.

In my opinion this is the best Apple smartwatch you can get at the moment. You get all this for a very good price which has gone down lately because Apple has announced the Apple smart watch Series 6.

The new Apple Smartwatch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE
The new Series 6 has beside the already wide range of features of the Series 5 also a blood oxygen meter. This allows watch wearers to monitor the oxygen level in their blood. The sensor works with normal and infrared light that is reflected by oxygen-rich red blood cells. Users of the Apple Watch with new sensor can also participate in a number of scientific studies on diseases such as asthma and Covid-19.

The Series 6 has a brighter screen and altimeter. It will be available in range of different colors. Apple also introduced new bracelets for the watches. Apple has also introduced a cheaper Apple Watch SE. The Apple Watch SE can be placed between the Series 4 and still available Series 3.

When looking at price-quality and value for money this Series 5 and when available the Series 6 is my choice for ‘best Apple smart watch 2020’.

Apple watch11Apple Smart Watch series 5


Best Android Smart Watch: Samsung Galaxy Smart Watch

The Samsung Galaxy smartwatch has a 1.3 Inch sAMOLED 360x 360 display and a 1.15 GHz Dual-Core processor with 0.75GB RAM 4GB internal storage memmory, the latest 2.4GHz Bluetooth v4.2 and a battery life that lasts up to 4 days. The watch has multiple sensors like an Accelerometer, Barometer, Gyro Sensor, HR Sensor and Light Sensor. Because this watch is much less costly than the Apple watch you get more value for money. The Samsung Galaxy below is less than $400 at the time of writing this review. Especially because of the value for money, the long battery life and the great looks this Samsung Galaxy smart watch is in my opinion the best Android smart watch this Christmas 2020.
