Our selection of the best deals of the day
With the Galaxy S8 Plus, Samsung has it succeeded in keeping a 6.2-inch screen in a format that is sufficiently ergonomic? Elements of answer pending our full test.
The P20 Lite may be the lightest version of the P20, it is nonetheless a robust smartphone and especially rooted in the times, despite a price that can be discouraging.
While the segment of very small smartphones is deserted by manufacturers who simply offer machines often disappointing in use, Apple's proposal is a hit. Its iPhone SE, perfect is the aging iPhone 5 or even 5s, is like an iPhone 6s in very compact format. Its performance and its wide autonomy presage of an excellent life and this very balanced machine answers perfectly to a precise problematic: to target a population in search of a small smartphone effective and usable with only one hand. For this target, it will be the best choice currently.
The Galaxy Note 8 ticks all the boxes of the current high-end smartphone of his stylus and makes him pay the high price. Is it worth it? Answer in this test.
Expected as the Messiah by Apple fans, the iPhone X has finally arrived and so far, it lives up to expectations. Edge-to-edge screen, flawless design, double stabilized photo sensor, and performance unmatched or almost, the iPhone X is the new iPhone that was expected since the iPhone 6. New, which will however require to relearn some gestures to use his smartphone. We will not forget the end of the TouchID fingerprint sensor in favor of FaceID facial recognition, which is not necessarily always practical. Still, the iPhone X is the indisputable choice at Apple at the end of the year for who has the means.
The Mi Mix 2 is the screenless smartphone that will delight Android fans. It is still not officially available in France, but there are solutions to get it.
The Galaxy S9 does not distinguish itself frankly from its predecessor by the design, but significantly improves its photo part with for the first time on smartphone a variable aperture: f / 2.4 or 1.5 depending on the light conditions. In addition to this feature, the Galaxy S9 keeps everything that made the salt of its predecessor: curved AMOLED display, water resistance, wireless charging and high performance. A beautiful set that allows the S9 to get on the podium of the best terminals of the moment.

TV / tablet:
The LG B8 is the most accessible OLE 2018 TV of the Korean giant, and although it embeds a lower image processing processor than its big brother the C8, the difference in terms of image quality is not blatant . It is much more on the bill however, since this model will save you several hundred euros for an image just as exceptional, a very correct and improved compared to last year and a design as always attractive . The difference on this point is at the level of the foot since that of the C8 is elongated and curved when that of the B7 is smaller and pyramid (which is even more practical in reality). In short, this B8 offers an unbeatable price / quality ratio in the Oled market, and even in the high-end TV market in general. What to offer the best image for less than 2000 euros.
Philips 65PUS7303 UHD
The Philips 65PUS7303 is a very good LCD TV with a 4K definition, running Android TV giving a wide range of available applications, and Ambilight compatible (dynamic wall lighting that follows the images displayed). But above all, it benefits from the very good image processing processor Philips P5, present on the most high-end models of the brand. It also has a Direct LED backlight system (several lighting zones on the slab) which is generally better than the Edge LED (lighting from the edges of the slab), all for a price that remains relatively reasonable.
Samsung QE49Q6F (2018)
The Samsung Q6F is the most affordable QLED TV of the brand. Here, no One Connect case to deport the connectors and hide the cables and no Full LED as on the Q9, we just LED on the edges (Edge LED). Nevertheless, the TV enjoys a beautiful colorimetry, a flattering contrast ratio and the very good homemade OS Samsung, Tizen. In addition to its particularly ergonomic interface, the latter embeds a few nice and exclusive functions like the ambient mode, a kind of screen saver allowing the TV to mimic your wall to blend in your interior. A nice product, but still a little expensive this-says.
Although not given, the XF9005 offers excellent image quality, superb design and enough options to appeal to anyone who is not just looking for a good deal.

Headphones / sound:
After a Zik, first name, very successful but perfectible, Parrot had reviewed his copy with the Zik 2. Rebelote with the Zik 3! The French manufacturer is evolving its concept of ultra-connected headphones with a design that evolves to become less massive, more elegant. Comfort also improves with weight loss and a greater range of hoop. The Zik 3 retains the touch headphones and the app. The latter, a real control center, allows you to adjust the sound as close to your tastes. The range of settings offered makes it a headset for polymorphic audio rendering.
As with the first Boom, Ultimate Ears (UE) plays the color card with the Boom 2. Again, the qualities of this portable Bluetooth speaker is not limited to its colors. We find the very good audio rendering and the Boom 2 pushes even further the notion of resistance. It is waterproof. Specificity of Ultimate Ears, the ability to pair two speakers to cover a larger area or to find a real stereo is also there. Very practical and clever! To not spoil anything, the enclosure retains the autonomy of 15 hours of its elder.
The Megaboom Bluetooth speaker from Ultimate Ears keeps the assets of its little sister and improves some. The Megaboom (like the Boom) is clearly positioned as one of the best nomad speakers on the market.
With the StayHere mounting system, the Bose SoundSport combines comfort, moisture resistance, ergonomics and audio quality to a very high standard. A helmet to advise all athletes.

Photo / Image / Drone:
For around 600 euros, you have an expert compact camera with 20Mpx one-inch sensor packed with features and excellent image quality, probably the best at its price, as well as a quick focus. However, like many of his competitors, his autonomy is quite limited (he has difficulty with a day). In addition, its ergonomics could be better. That said, the Panasonic Lumix LX15 offers excellent value for money and is therefore an interesting choice.
The Parrot Disco is a drone of a new kind. He resumes the design of a flying wing, he is closer to an airplane than a helicopter. Logically, this atypical design (for a drone) opens a new field of possibilities. It can reach a speed of 80 km / h. It comes with a SkyController that allows you to manage speed, direction and altitude. You can also drive on sight. The "cockpit glasses" helmet takes on the concept of a Gear VR, your smartphone is housed inside to act as a screen.
For a Star Wars fan this flying derivative can be a good gift idea. This is even more true that this Star Wars drone is particularly neat and that it looks in all respects with those of the saga. For besides the wahou effect after unpacking (the music of Star Wars sounds and a Plexiglas box lights up to unveil the drone) this Speeder Bike 74-Z offers strong performance in the air. The flight experience is excellent and the sensation of speed (more than 50 km / hour) simply bluffing.
